New palletisers set to improve operations at Beatson Clark

The installation of a new twin palletiser on Beatson Clark’s amber glass lines is set to make production faster and more flexible.

The leading South Yorkshire glass manufacturer has invested £720,000 in a new Zecchetti conveyor line and palletiser which is able to both bulk and small pack.

“One of the amber lines previously packed only shrink-wrapped modular packs, which limited its use to pharmaceutical products in this format,‘ said Graham Lax, Head of Project Management at Beatson Clark.

“But the upgraded line gives Beatson Clark the flexibility to supply pharmaceutical containers in either bulk or small packs and will be able to handle other containers such as beer bottles too.”

Other benefits include a better environmental performance and an improved health and safety design, as there is easy access to components at a high level.
“Having manufactured medicine bottles and jars for 260 years the pharmaceutical sector remains an important market for us and increasing the packaging options we offer in this area will be beneficial for our customers,” said Charlotte Taylor, Marketing Manager at Beatson Clark.

“In addition, this investment will give us more flexibility for the growing craft brewing sector.”
