Description of the Need

MadTree Brewery in Cincinnati, Ohio wished to expand their original 2013 can line (24 cans per minute).

Key Customer needs and benefits

Based on the hands-on approach and positive feedback from other brewers, MadTree chose to work with Regal® to expand. Now, the packaging line runs 250 cans per minute. A video about the expansion can be viewed on the Regal Beloit YouTube channel.

 

With the team at Regal, the initial conveyor run-in was able to start up quickly and smoothly, and start selling cases within one month. A year before startup of the expansion, Regal assisted in equipment selection, conveyor/component design, layout simplification, OEM “Final Acceptance Testing”, and onsite installation support, which continued through start up and run in.

A bundle of parts was selected, all manufactured by Regal family brands, making it easy for the customer to acquire from one source. These products include System Plast® NGE modular belts and Nolu®-S wear strips, Sealmaster® bearings, Hub City® HERA® gearboxes, and LEESON® motors. These products optimize efficiency and result in a 100% dry running conveyor line, providing both production efficiency and sustainability.

 



 

One successful upgrade was developing a streamlined transition from packaging line conveyors to a key piece of equipment, by designing, building and integrating a System Plast custom side transfer module into the equipment. This created a smooth transfer eliminating jamming and down cans. Another key component during the install was a punch list to identify potential installation issues and recommended corrective actions before start-up, saving significant time during run-in. The Regal team made the complex simple for MADTREE, who now have an efficient, smooth running packaging line that will be relatively maintenance free for the long term, with higher yield and faster throughput, and allow them to conduct business in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly way.
