More than 100 years ago, Dr. Carl Jung made a groundbreaking invention: a process that completely removes alcohol from wine, while preserving its aromas. This patented method has been successfully used ever since to produce more and more fruity, tangy alcoholfree sparkling wines and wines in many varieties, including organic quality wines.
NEW DESIGN OPTIONS
Alcohol-free beverages are popular in almost 40 countries today. Around ten million bottles, including contract bottling, go on sale every year, with packaging becoming increasingly important. As part of a comprehensive upgrade, Carl Jung is also renewing the labeling solution. The combined machine chosen by RENNER is intended to raise performance, cost-efficiency and flexibility to a new level.
NUMEROUS CONTROL SYSTEMS
The complex requirements specification is reflected in the extensive features of the RENNER S Servo Combi. Three wet-gluing stations and three self-adhesive dispensers as well as a camera system for precise servo-motorized bottle alignment open up numerous design options for a maximum of 10,000 bottles/h: with neck bows and banderoles or on new formats such as Carmen, jug or airplane bottles. Champagne bottles are precisely positioned on the cap using a UV spot. The result is checked by numerous control systems – including text recognition and legibility checks using OCR and OCV2. The level of service, however, was another important factor that tipped the
scales. “By opting for RENNER we found a provider who speaks your language, is easily accessible and can reliably deliver spare parts,” says Jörg Wilhelm, Technical Director at Carl Jung.
In terms of cost-efficiency, RENNER boasts a number of integrated facilities that shorten the conversion times. “The constant conversion and adjustment tasks for a total of 50 format-label combinations required an enormous amount of time and effort,” explains Jörg Wilhelm. “Most of these unproductive tasks are no longer required, since all settings are stored directly in the formulas and are configured automatically.” This also includes the gluing heights. With up to three different heights per bottle type, this saves a considerable amount of time. Thanks to a compound slide, the stations can also be moved from service to the working position without readjustment.
The machine clearly visualizes format part changes on the swivel-mounted touch display.
