Gruppo ASA invests €1m in new aerosol production line
Gruppo ASA has recently installed a new line for the production of aerosol cans at its factory in Liverpool, UK.
According to the company, the investment of approximately €1 million has made it possible to double the production capacity of the plant in the field of aerosols with increased flexibility and faster response to present and future customers.
Owing to the installation of Lanico CF385 machinery, the new line will be able to produce up to 300 cans per minute. The line was equipped with an automatic palletiser and an automatic pallet wrapping, top framing and fastening system.
Francesco Amati, operations manager of the Group, says, ‘The recent investment in Liverpool is part of the optimisation project of production plants that our company has been dealing with for some years now through the installation of new machines and the rationalisation of existing ones.
“At the moment, the new line can produce 240 cans per minute. It will be able to reach peak production after some future minor investments scheduled on the machines which form it.”
