Fogg's Innovative Universal Container Handling Keys

Mar 30, 2022

Holland, MI, March 30, 2022 – Fogg Filler is continually focused on improving technology that better serves our customers and the environment. Fogg has addressed the issue of lengthy changeovers with new patent-pending technology for universal container handling.

Many Fogg customers run several different bottles on the same machine. In the past, this required multiple sets of change parts that need to be stored somewhere in the plant, and that changed out between nearly every bottle change. Fogg is here with a solution to help remedy these problems of the past. This solution is new to the market and can handle most bottle shapes in addition to round.

Instead of changing full sets, the new change parts are small, color-coded "keys" that set the size and shape of the starwheels and guides. According to our current customers that are testing them, changeover can go from a half-hour down to 5 minutes or less. This is a great option for co-packers who are running several similar bottles on one machine and customers with frequent changeovers, or those with small manufacturing spaces who cannot store multiple sets of parts.

This universal option is bottle specific and will not be the correct option for all applications. If you are interested in cutting down on change over and saving space, send your bottle mix to Fogg to see if you're a fit for these new universal container handling parts. If you'd like to see this new technology with a hands-on demo, come see us in Chicago during the Pack Expo show.

Fogg continues to improve technology and provide the highest level of reliability for your production lines.
