The modernization of VOA Verrerie d’Albi and our group has increased the flexibility of our facilities and has allowed us to manage high volumes while also offering small series.
Meeting client's expectations by differentiation
Since its Flexline investment in 2009, VOA is able to produce small series in a choice of tints, including light colors. This flexibility allows us to support our clients in the launch of limited editions or products for special events. In 2016, a second Flexline was incorporated into our production plant, which allows us to produce even more small series. In 2017, a third Flexline was added to the industrial facilities of VOA-Verrerie d’Albi.
The Flex Line technology allows producing up to 10 products simultaneously. VOA has 3 lines designed for this technology.
- A variable weight feeder allows the production of glass gobs (glass drops) of different weight in order to produce different bottles on the same line;
A recognition sorter using a camera identifies the different shapes of bottles and sorts them as they come off the line.
