E&J Gallo Wineries
E&J Gallo Wineries in Modesto, CA experienced down bottles on their wine cooler bottling line causing large amounts of downtime. Research was done into the history of the bottling line along with analysis of the current process. A redesign of the single filing process and pre-filler rail segments was also completed. CAD models were developed for each area along with implementation of the pre-filler rails. The newly installed rails proved to reduce the vibrations in the pre-filler area and provided for a smoother entry into the filler.
