Encirc announced a significant boost to their Elton plant

Encirc will build the world's first ‘Industry 4.0-Ready’ glass production line

The new line will have cutting edge technology installed and will see the plant’s hot end (where bottles are produced) digitally connected to the cold end (where bottles are inspected).

Once operational in Q2 2020, the new line will make use of in-built intelligent swabbing, laser identification marking and state-of-the-art inspection machines, fully integrated to work alongside human operators.

The state-of-the-art technology will significantly improve health and safety for operators while also increasing the plant’s manufacturing capabilities.

Vidrala group is investing a total of 500 million EUR across its plants in Europe with more than 140 million GBP of that being invested in Encirc’s two UK-based plants.
