Britvic productivity boosted by Videojet trial.

Soft drinks group Britvic is looking at upgrading its Rugby site following the trial of a Videojet 1620 UHS coding machine.

The addition enabled Britvic to increase its production line speed by 30m per minute and the site cans Pepsi-Cola products as the company has an exclusive agreement in the UK with PepsiCo to make and distribute its global brands.

Britvic already runs Videojet’s Excel 170i UHS and the Rugby site’s maintenance technician Paul Ash said that the company is looking at the next generation of coders.

Videojet worked closely with the Britvic site in Rugby for three months to put their new 1620 (UHS) Continuous Ink Jet printer through a challenging production trial. During the trial, the 1620 UHS printer coded in excess of 23m codes at the soft drinks site.

Britvic is now considering bringing forward the replacement of all of its existing Excel UHS printers.
