Case Study – Jonarve Ltd.
Jonarve Ltd is a privately owned Company that specialises in providing flexible, creative and effective contract packing and filling solutions.
Jonarve Ltd. is based in Flint, Flintshire and were established in 1992.
Jonarve Ltd. contacted Universal in 2016 looking for a filling machine to bottle perfumes into glass bottles.
They needed a versatile filling machine able to fill a wide range of bottles sizes and shapes. Seven different bottles of varying shapes and sizes were given to Universal for evaluation and testing.
Products to fill:
- Perfumes and fragrances
Following evaluation and testing by the Universal team a vacuum level filling machine was recommended to the customer.
In December 2016, Jonarve took delivery of a four head Easifill semi-automatic vacuum level filling machine. Supplied with four fixed nozzles in addition to a remote wander nozzle assembly, the machine had the ability to fill tiny glass bottles, awkward shaped bottles, square bottles and tall bottles. The specification also included an automatic overflow return system and a 35-litre stainless steel tank to which the customer fitted a pneumatic diaphragm pump.
Following 10 months of successful production in October 2017, Jonarve contacted Universal to order two more machines to the same specification!
From January 2018 Jonarve have now ordered another thirteen Easifill semi-automatic vacuum level filling machines! These machines are currently in production at the Flint site meeting huge customer demand.
In addition to sixteen Easifill semi-automatic vacuum level filling machines, Jonarve have now purchased a Posifill EF semi-automatic volumetric filling machine for creams and lotions. They have also purchased a Universal Hand Capper for tightening pre-threaded screw caps!
Outputs increased from 20 to 40 bottles per minute.
33% reduction in labour (line is now operated by only two people).
“We have dealt with Universal filling for several years and are always impressed by the level of service and knowledge they have to offer. This has led to the purchase of a number of machines which Universal have been able to modify to our exact needs.”
