Having the proper bottle handling system in place when transporting hundreds of bottles per minute through a packaging system reduces your risk of jams, damaged product and spills which cause downtime and product loss. Bottle handling systems are not a one-size-fits all type package. Bottles come in a multitude of different sizes, shapes and materials of construction, therefore not all conveyors perform adequately for the different bottles available. These factors make a difference when choosing which bottle handling system is right for your filling line.
EPIC’s packaging system integrators will work with you to customize the best bottle handling system for your line. Our engineers will understand your current issues and future needs, which will allow them to identify the proper material handling equipment for your bottling line.

Why EPIC Packaging Systems?
We are experienced in making bottle filling and bottle handling systems 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.
