BBM Packaging has been for more than 10 years the partner and first choice of brands operating in the beverage sector, and which are renowned nationally and internationally, for what concerns start-up, maintenance, overhauling and assistance for bottling and packaging machines.
The company works with brands such as Coca Cola, Acque Minerali d’Italia, Nestlé Waters and Pepsi, but BBM does not work within the beverage sector only, it also collaborates with the major firms of the milk industry. Among them, surely, Latteria Soresina, one of the main Italian players on the market with a growing turnover that touched the 370 million Euro last year and which gathers other quality Italian brands.
Latteria Soresina represents also one of the many cases of customers satisfied by the professionalism of BBM services, as it already entrusted us for the production line of Peschiera Borromeo (MI), where we installed high efficiency used and guaranteed machines.
That is why we have been contacted again for the same site in the province of Milan in 2018, to work on the increasing of productivity projects, through the installation of a new line dedicated to the production of UHT milk bottles. The project has been very engaging as the customer presented us the need of a line that may eventually be combined with the one already installed and guarantee a backup for the production line of the fresh milk bottles: this market has different production demands and stricter deadlines.
The aim was to have the fresh milk line always working to meet the demand and the agreements with the distributors, being a strategic element in the production organisation of Latteria Soresina. BBM packaging Solutions has answered the call from Latteria Soresina and, thanks to its great experience in offering design, overhauling and installation services on used machines, we have carried out the analysis and development of the layout of the new line.
INSTALLED BOTTLING MACHINES
BBM Packaging, next to the design, has also supplied the majority of machines of the new line, among them:
– one blow moulder overhauled and guaranteed, which works with the 38 mm neck typical of milk bottles. Also on the blow-moulding system we took care of the manufacturing of as series of new moulds , customised for the Latteria Soresina bottles.
– one shrink-wrapping machine, working with film, also overhauled and guaranteed.
– one labeller.
– the air conveying system between the various machines.
All the machines are used ones, overhauled to be as new and guaranteed by BBM.
Particularly interesting, it has been an upgrade on the blow moulder, as a matter of fact, Latteria Soresina asked us to modify the machine to work with lower weight preforms, in order to reduce the plastic material, paying attention and respect to the environment, something that has always characterised the two companies.
The new line of Peschiera Borromeo, whose installation ended with the commissioning, by BBM, in January 2019, meeting delivery deadlines, produces the 1 litre bottle format, cylinder shaped, and it is able to work with two different packaging configuration with film, 3×2 and 4×2 (respectively working up to 40 packages per minute with the first one and up to 30 packages per minute for the second one), and it can produce about 12.000 bottles per hour.
