Group DANONE is one of the world leaders in the food industry, providing fresh dairy products, bottled water, biscuits and cereal products to people around the globe. To remain competitive in the industry, Danone Argentina, part of Groupe DANONE Latin America, was interested in finding a solution that would provide increased reliability and effectiveness to pick, raise and transfer packed dairy products.
Hoping to also make improvements related to more efficient air consumption, Danone Argentina replaced the mechanical pumps on its case packer machines with Piab’s P6010 vacuum pump.
The new pumps reduced air consumption and are more reliable in the handling of Danone’s products. The company also saw a reduction in downtime due to decreased maintenance, and the local technical support and simplicity of replacement components are an additional time saving benefit.
