Smart factory automation on bottling and packaging lines is a crucial factor to ensure efficient, eco-friendly and functional production processes.
Starting with these premises, SMI has developed the new EASY-CAP system, a gravitationalcap-picking system which takes the caps from the hopper and keeps them in the correct position until they reach the ECOBLOC® ERGON integrated system for blowing, filling and capping PET bottles.
