Equipment and components for format changes and a new series of label smoothing units: CRM Engineering offers universal solutions for the packaging sector, for any production capacity.

Founded in 1985, over the years CRM Engineering gained considerable experience in the packaging industry, specialising in the field of bottling. With its extensive range of components and equipment for format change-over, the company can assist Customers in solving their problems related to high costs and administrative delays.  Next to the container handling equipment (scrolls, star-wheels, etc.) CRM offers a new range of components in non-adhesive rubber-like material recently developed for label smoothing. These customised components are an excellent alternative to the traditional sponge used to this purpose, to remedy inconveniences such as wear and continuous maintenance. The range is enhanced by the services offered to customers. Among these, there are 3D prototyping of samples; bottling, wrapping and packaging equipment; scroll drives according to customer’s specifications; after-sales service with technical documentation and change parts. With a format sample and just a few hours of measurements, CRM Engineering can deliver a complete upgrade for a bottling line. Furthermore, the company can develop a complete equipment for containers handling: from rinsing and blowing to filling, capping and labelling (hot melt and cold glue).

Quality and image
Today, the image of a product plays an important role for sales success. For this reason, designers are constantly looking for new ideas in the field of moulds, in order to guarantee the differentiation of their product, next to safety and high appeal. Despite being an unavoidable process, this makes the task of machine designers more difficult. Aware of this, CRM Engineering offers Customers the possibility of processing the mathematical data of their containers (bottle, jar, or any other container used for the packaging), helping them in the design of suitable handling equipment.

The new series of equipment in non-adhesive rubber-like material from CRM for label smoothing replaces the traditional sponge that creates considerable problems in terms of maintenance and wear

Safe handling
With the help of CRM technicians, it is possible to find the correct solution to any safety problem related with bottle handling. Thanks to the experience gained in various fields of industrial automation, the company can design and manufacture made-to-measure solutions. From simple transparent plastic covers to the construction of complete self-supporting cabins with doors and panels with or without a frame:  finding the solution that best suits each customer is the company’s aim. For this reason, the staff creates an efficient synergy between the use of accessories from major national companies, and the ability to internally produce the missing component, with constant attention to costs and lead times. Maximum precision and speed in delivery are guaranteed by the high technology of the equipment in use as well as the experience of the technicians, who are well aware of the problems related with the processing of polymers such as polyethylene (of various densities and colors), polypropylene (PP), acetal resins (POM), PET, Arnite, PVC, as well as cast Nylon 6, PA6G+MOS, cast Nylon+MOS.
