Automated Packaging Systems

Bottle Filling Lines

Accurately filling your bottles at the desired rate requires a skilled integrator who can design, automate and install a packaging line with the correct tilt, speed and accumulation. EPIC takes complete responsibility for your bottle filling line,  guaranteeing fill rates and line speed upon check-out. Our engineering and fabrication team has worked with a wide variety of companies on bottle packaging systems around the world. Each system is tailored to the unique needs of bottle filling companies.

  • Bottle Handling –Palletized bottles, bulk bottle handling, in-case handling, bottle labeling
  • Bottle Packaging Orientation– Orienting the bottle in correct position to be filled (EPIC will integrate a bottle packaging machine vision system if needed)
  • Bottle Filling– Correct filling technology provided, ex.:  Inline filling, rotary filling, sanitary design requirements, etc.
  • Finished Bottle Inspection – Cap detection, fill level inspection, code dating and label inspection
  • Case Handling/Packaging– Case erecting, case packing & proper sealing
  • Case Inspection – Check weighing, bar code reading, date coding
  • Full Case Handling – Providing conveying systems to transport case to final location
  • Palletizing– Palletize cases, stretch wrapping, display case handling, pallet labeling
  • Manual/Automatic New/Used Equipment– Define upfront when it makes sense to use manual operation options vs. fully automatic operations and provide used equipment option to reduce capital costs

Why EPIC Packaging Systems? 

We are experienced in making the packaging process for bottle filling companies more efficient. From high-speed, fully automated bottle filling lines to low cost manual packaging lines, we can suggest pointed improvements that quickly improve your bottling process. Due to the complexity of most packaging lines, EPIC breaks down manufacturing goals and line design in the first meeting with each client. This helps pinpoint the most cost effective approach to deliver solutions that meet production goals, budget and timeline.

The first step to this process is an up-front meeting with the customer to understand their project.  This meeting includes several EPIC engineers with years of experience in the packaging field.  Based on this meeting, a Front-End Engineering study is outlined.   The study provides the customer a clear path forward that includes:  initial layout, a firm budget, project timeline, defined scope of work and major equipment specifications.
