A wax-dipped bottle sends a message—each colorful drip is a sign that its contents are special. Now, Emmeti USA has created an automated system to replicate the hand-dipped finish. Emmeti’s Wax-On line robotically dips bottles for a consistent (or custom) finish with little human intervention. Bottles pass through an infeed conveyor and, if a pull tab or label orientation is needed, lined up via laser to identical facings. Bottles are efficiently inverted, dipped, swirled, and resettled on the conveyor. The equipment can be a standalone process or combined with other mechanized tasks.
Bottling lines are mesmerizing anyway; watching the smooth passage of bottles through the colorful dipping and drying process is almost Zen.
