White Paper: Buy Bulk Glass Sometimes, Don't Buy Bulk Glass Other Times

Date: 07/02/14

Emmeti USA, a division of Emmeti S.p.A. announces a proven automated process for bulk depalletizing and case depalletizing on one single machine. Our unique combination depalletizer can handle bulk or cased product offering greater flexibility of handling different product loads in a smaller footprint than traditional separate solutions. With this innovative process customers can ease into the transition of receiving bulk glass, opt to receive high end bottles in reshippers, or simply have flexibility and a choice of what they buy, and when they buy it.

Emmeti has been a premier supplier of many factory automation lines throughout the last 32 years, and most of these were executed with traditional, yet separate automation systems for bulk depalletizing and case depalletizing. Market trends to receive bottles in bulk to reduce corrugated use, coupled with consumer’s desire for more choices and the need for increased efficiency while reducing operating cost prompted Emmeti to design, manufacture and commission a more highly automated solution that offers a choice that puts the customer in charge of when it makes sense to purchase bulk glass and when it is best to buy glass in cases.

“It’s important to understand the need for flexibility on the bottling lines”, says Fausto Savazzi, president of Emmeti USA, and a global authority on the automation of bottling lines. “For years, wineries, distilleries and glass plants have been challenged with the decision to convert from receiving bottles in cases, to buying bulk glass, while the majority thought that reducing cost through the purchase of bulk was not possible for them, because they still had bottles in cases, or sometimes the need to receive bottles inside cases, therefore Emmeti made the choice easier. Emmeti had been supplying glass houses with the ability to send out bulk glass and cased products for years, so why not offer the reverse of the best automation solution? We now have more companies opting for the ability to depalletize both for pure cost savings while maintaining flexibility.”

Emmeti maintains a leadership role in the design and manufacture of a variety of automation solutions, as premier supplier to the global market, having executed both semi-automatic and fully-automatic systems for complete bottling lines, or single machines on the line. The company has engineered, designed, manufactured and commissioned lines across many industries including producers of glass, PET and HDPE as well as facilities bottling, water, juice, sports drinks, soft drinks, wine, beer, distilled beverages, coffee, sauces, oils, and food and house hold cleaning products. Emmeti supplies solutions for both primary packs (bottles) and secondary packaging (cartons, crates & trays).

When asked why Emmeti has been so successful in the container handling industry, Fausto Savazzi, President of Emmeti USA says, “we have a unique position in the market because we offer so many different types of container handling solutions, all designed around the customer’s specific needs and not simply a typical prebuilt off the shelf system, while maintaining quick job changes, and operator friendly technology with no proprietary parts. Also our integration experience and our long history as an equipment supplier to the glass manufactures, coupled with an industry-leading engineering and sales team, allows us to have the skill sets necessary to guarantee the success of a variety of end of line solutions without forcing customers to be “boxed into a corner,” because we offer flexibility and efficiency through simplicity in our solutions, while never compromising technology, service and support.”
