From simple maintenance of machines to the engineering of a line, the answer to the production and budget demands of the customer moves towards the lowest possible impact on the environment and the sharing of the best practices with the personnel of the production site. Passion is what drives our daily work, because we
are well aware to be in a hyper-competitive market, with competitors with good prices and quality and in which the customer’s trust is gained after years and it can be lost in a matter of seconds. For this reason, we give it all in every service and project for each customer and even more for those who have entrusted us over the years establishing a mutual satisfaction relationship.
This ability to combine recovering and efficiency makes BBM Service an appreciated partner for many customers.
That has led to our steady collaboration with large companies for the sup- ply of maintenance and upgrade services on ma- chines and lines. Over the last few months, we have worked for one of the major water bottling companies of Italy indeed, for a project which has shown even better our capacity to add value to the available resources, always aiming at regeneration and sustainable production.
The project, for the up- grading and the increasing of productivity of the site, has involved BBM from the designing of the new layout of the line, with the implementation of refurbished supplied machines, refurbished machines from other sites and new machines.
For this kind of project, among the challenges we have faced, it must be mentioned the rearrangement of available spaces, because different machines to increase productivity mean different and often larger dimensions. But also adapting and converting the machines and solutions, something that only an established company such as BBM Service can do.
Having a closer look at the specific activities we have done, it comes natural for us to start from the supply of refurbished machines which is among our strengths. For this customer, the machines we have supplied are a blow moulder and a shrink- wrapper completely over- hauled , upgraded and ready for the production site, with the goal also of using less plastic.
Thanks to our support, the client has been able to allocate some machines from other production sites of the group, some closed and some needing a machine upgrade, to the plant of this project and for which they represent an improvement in terms of capacity.
The machines we have relocated for this line are the filling machine, the palletizer and the labeller, next to several sections of conveyors. Obviously, relocation means also disassembling and assembling, but also being in charge of transportation. Furthermore, refurbishing, changes of format and conversion have been necessary to get the ma-
chines ready to work in the new line with also lighter performs. All these activities have been carried out by BBM Service directly in the working site.
The relocation done in accordance with the customer represents an interesting opportunity for every producer with more than one bottling and packaging factory, who can exploit the upgrade with new machines and the end of activity in some lines to give new value to another one, thanks to our work.
As already said, the project involved also the use of brand new machines which we set into the new layout of the line and for which we have taken care of the orders and the sup- ply. The new machines are the stretch-wrapper, the handle applicator and the bottle inspection device.
To conclude the installation activity of the line, we run the testing to deliver to the customer a turnkey system.
Giuseppe Boffelli, CEO of BBM Service Srl, had no doubt when the client challenged us with this multifaceted project: “… because the service work we were asked for consist- ed of the activities BBM was born for in 2005, something we have been offering for years on the market, for which we have a great experience and match perfectly with our concept of recovering and giving new value.”
Always with this concept at the centre of our business model, we purchased from our customer some machines which became not apt for the new line, but which may have a second life in other production facility.
Of course, to undertake similar projects, it is necessary a very cohesive and skilled team of technicians and “…our people, under the supervision of one of our installation managers, have done a great job, combining activities which are usually carried out separately, showing once again their dedication and reliability”, it is added by Daniele Milesi, Operations & After Sale Service Manager of BBM Service.
The numbers of the project are what stands out though, the line has doubled its hourly production (from 8.000 to 16.000 bph), reducing the weight of the plastic per- forms (4 g less per each perform) for a total saving of around 250.000,00 Eur per year, which by itself means the return of the 1.000.000,00 Eur investment in few years. An increased productivity can be translated also in potentiality to better meet the demand of the market, and consequently an improvement in the organization of shifts.
Only to mention the immediate benefits. Here it is the perfect example of how BBM Service may be the unique reference point of the customer for the many activities needed on a line, from servicing, to purchase, going through installation, with a well established structure, with
two facilities, more than 30 permanent technicians and well defined departments to serve the customer in the best way. This is the plus offered by BBM Service, which is now recognised and sought-after in the sector of bottling and packaging.
