The world’s first Swabbing Robot

Our Swabbing Robot is the first to be able to be directly installed onto your existing production machinery without requiring you to bring your production to a standstill for the robot to do its work.

GO FOR THE SWABBING ROBOT

Swabbing is a manual method of lubricating moulds used to form glass bottles, which is made to take place during production. These lubrication activities, which are performed by workers, come with a number of problems.

The majority of factories that currently manufacture glass bottles use manual lubrication methods. This has now been made completely obsolete with the arrival of the Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot.

Socabelec S.A. has designed the first and most perfected Swabbing Robot in the world.

The mistakes and flaws encountered during swabbing are now a thing of the past courtesy of the arrival of Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot. The patented principle of Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot is that it sprays exactly the right quantity of lubricant into the moulds. Without requiring production to be stopped at any point, thereby making it the most productive solution in the world!

For maximum productivity, we use Glassline© Oil Swabmatic.

THE MOST ADVANCED SWABBING ROBOT

Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot is the world’s first robot designed especially for swabbing. It is also the first to perform the lubrication activities whilst the IS machine is in operation. Without loss of content after the swabbing operation, unlike traditional manual swabbing.

The robot continuously checks the low oil quantity that is sprayed during the process. We use Glassline© Swabmatic Oil, the purpose-developed oil.

ADAPTED TO YOUR EXISTING IS MACHINES

Our robots are personalised and adapted to your existing IS machinery already up and running. Your production line can be fitted with our Swabbing Robot in a matter of just a few hours.

We provide a special beam to carry the robot and the safety cage which we connect to the control panel. The operators retain the same easy access to their machines for maintenance and production purposes as before.

SAVE UP TO 75% IN OIL

The users of Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot and the Glassline© Swabmatic Oil have witnessed a substantial reduction in their oil consumption levels. For a section of properly serviced IS machines, oil consumption is in the order of 50 grams per 24 hours and per section that performs 14 cycles per minute, a lubrication run is made to occur every 6 minutes.

SAFETY FIRST

The robot is completely safe so that your workers are totally protected when working close the robot or coming into contact with the robot.

PATENTED DESIGN

This innovation is protected under a licence against copying and unauthorised use. You retain the exclusive use of Socabelec’s technology.

EASE OF USE

Engineered in partnership with a glass recipients manufacturer, our robot is easy to use by any operator. In addition, it will perform lubricant spraying operations in observance of various processes; B-B, P-B, NNPB, etc.

Productivity. Safety. Gains.
