Glass offers extensive benefits as a container choice, but presents production challenges
Container | Glass
Trends such as luxury finishes, complex bottle designs and light-weighting can affect production efficiency when using glass containers. And while many factors can affect the efficiency of a filling line, breakage and downtime are two of the issues that can be located, measured, and corrected.
Already a popular container choice for alcoholic drink sectors including wine, beer and spirits; there is an increasing demand for glass containers across food and beverage sectors, as well as pharmaceutical production.
Smart in-line sensors can help solve the unique challenges of production using glass including scuffing, breakage and other aesthetic damage. As a preventative maintenance tool, the sensors can prevent line performance degradation. Smart sensors are also an invaluable source of data for research and development projects.
