Montreal Canada-based Joseph E. Seagram & Sons' LaSalle Canada bottling plant is improving efficiencies and reducing costs in an effort to improve the bottom line. A key weapon in that fight was the recent blending of two glass filling lines into one. This single line has been transformed with quick-change parts (for tool-less changeovers) to reduce downtime and labor costs. Seagram's Bottling Development Division (Waterloo Ontario Canada) supplies color-coded "kits" for 17 different bottle types (encompassing more than 60 total SKUs) that run on Line #5 in LaSalle. Each kit typically contains change parts and feedscrews to match quick-change feedscrew drives for the line's cleaner filler and two cappers. Additionally the kit contains some 60 common spacers that are snapped into place between guiderail brackets that are mounted to the conveyors between the four machines. These quick-change Trackstar® guiderail brackets are manufactured by Fenner Drives (Manheim PA). Fenner purchased the rights to these quick-change components from Bottling Development about one year ago.
