7. Packing

On special equipment, a specified number of bottles, depending on bottle volume, are wrapped with a heat-shrink film which forms the product packages (cases).

The cases are then transferred to the next packaging stage: a palletiser stacks a strictly specified number of cases onto transport pallets and wraps them with film.

Did you know?

  • The temperature in the furnace that shrinks the packaging film is 200°С, but the bottles do not get distorted as the exposure time is short
  • The heat-shrink film used for packaging is 55 micron thick ( an average human hair is 40 micron)
  • On average, a palletiser can stack and pack up to 150 pallets of drinks in an hour
