Are Worn Out Guide Rails Slowing Your Production Line?

Are Worn Out Guide Rails Slowing Your Production Line?

All things wear out over time and guide rails are no exception. The chemicals in cleaning agents used on conveyors start to break down the plastic in guide rails over time. Additionally, the friction caused by bottles constantly rubbing against the guide rails can cause significant wear. Worn out guide rails lead to more downed bottles, bottled jams, and downtime for maintenance. Replacing the guide rails for the conveyor in your factory can provide a number of benefits to your production line from aesthetics to functionality to health and safety.

New guide rails can greatly improve the functionality of your packaging line leading to less downed bottles, less bottle jams, and less downtime for maintenance. Our staff will visit your factory and customize the guide rail layout to optimize bottle flow. This can result in higher operating speeds and smoother flow. Less clinking of bottles means less noise in the factory. We can also customize your new guide rails to adjust for various bottle sizes used in production. This will make changeovers for different bottle sizes easier and more efficient, reducing downtime.

New guide rails also create aesthetic value. Investors and customers touring a plant would rather see clean, even guide rails than worn-out ones in pieces and shambles. Your finished product will also benefit from improved guide rails as they create less friction on the bottle while it’s traveling through the bottling line, reducing wear and markings on the bottle and labels. There are now more options available than ever before for shapes and materials used for guide rails. If you have an older production line, there may be a type of guide rail better suited for your container than currently installed. With over 40 years of experience, it’s safe to say Bevco knows a thing or two about guide rails. If your bottle line is suffering from worn-out guide rails, contact us and we will be more than happy to help you get your bottle line back in tip-top shape.
