Sulwath Brewery - Bottling Machine repair and upgrade
We were recently approached by a local brewery that could no longer operate efficiently due to an ongoing issue with a beer bottle filling machine. The machine was no longer supported by the OEM manufacturer and the brewery was facing a large investment for a new machine. During our first visit we managed resolve the reason for the failure and get the machine back into operation. Moving forward we recommended a course of action to prevent similar issues.
Further to the initial breakdown, we were made aware of a smaller machine that had been shelved due to a fault. This bottler contained an older Micro-1 PLC. This was faulty and there was no way to retrieve the original programme code. The machine was moved into our workshop where it recieved a newly programmed Siemens LOGO PLC. We are also upgraded all the electrical wiring, pneumatic and hydraulic hoses. the machine was re-installed and with a small amount off commissioning was operational the same day.
All of the above is being completed at a fraction of the cost of a new bottling machine.
