AGR demonstrates how millions can be saved with the right weighted bottle
At the drinktec trade show in Munich, Germany, AGR’s Director of Research, Bill Slusser, conducted a free seminar on understanding and establishing impact criteria for filling lines. The seminar provided a foundation for understanding glass strength and the effect of stresses developed during impact events. The highlight of the seminar was an illustration that indicated that utilizing actual impact values obtained through a filling line audit, has the potential to produce annual cost savings in the millions when properly applied to a lightweighting campaign. Properly performing and interpreting the results of a line audit is the key to unlocking these incredible, cost benefits.
Accessing AGR’s Comprehensive Container Development service, which consists of FEA analysis of the current bottle designs, filling line audits and validation thru performance testing, allows the customer to realize the potential cost benefits outlined in the seminar.
