Processing that ensures

Processing that ensures optimum microbiological product safety. The packaging and palletizing section of the line features Innopack Kisters SP and PSP shrink packers that combine the cans to form packs. These are loaded onto pallets for distribution to retailers by the robotcontrolled Innopal PB palletizer. The KHS team from 2016 returned for the installation and commissioning of the new line and were welcomed like old friends, Héctor Mungo and CCU project manager Leandro Resnicoff insist. “The teamwork between our two companies was like nothing else I’ve ever experienced in any other project. Before the pandemic our KHS colleagues were a fixed feature of our soccer matches every Wednesday evening and were of course invited to the barbecue afterwards. This was real camaraderie.” This trust was clearly rooted in the engineers’ expertise and the high quality of the work they did, Mungo believes. All according to plan As co-manager of the Argentinian KHS office Jorge Bosch is very proud of his colleagues’ achievements. “From delivery through installation to commissioning and ramp-up we kept to all of the deadlines despite corona – and even undershot the planned budget. The results speak for themselves: on acceptance we had an overall equipment effectiveness of 96.7%.” Thanks to the plant machinery procured from the Dortmund engineering company since 2016, CCU Argentina can now process around 200,000 cans per hour on its KHS lines. In the meanwhile, almost half of the production flows into the aluminum containers. “As the market grows, so does the number of cans – even if not as disproportionately as in the past,” says Darío Mollo. “I expect their share to settle at 55%.” This means that the can has established itself as a worthy alternative to the tried-and-tested glass bottle. This is a remarkable tale of growth – one in which KHS has proved to be a truly competent assistant.
