Absolut Vodka is one of the most recognized vodkas worldwide and the Premium vodka market leader. Lars Olsson Smith first produced Absolut in Ahus, Sweden in 1879 using a revolutionary new distillation method known as rectification (still used today). Absolut Vodka was launched globally in 1979. The Ahus distillery was built in 1906 and houses state-of-the-art modern technology along with old local distilling traditions. Today Absolut produces 11.6 million cases a year and is available in over 120 countries worldwide.
Absolut has a culture of excellence in all aspects of the business: ONÖDIGT BRA [even better than good]. That is evident throughout its manufacturing facility as well. A few years ago Absolut’s Director of Technical Development and Packaging, Hakan Nilsson, was at an exhibition in Milan, Italy, looking for a solution to help improve the performance of their crowded production lines. It was there that he discovered DYNAC.
In a recent interview, Nilsson recalls thinking as he watched the DYNAC run that this could possibly be the solution he was looking for.”With that small footprint, I can manage to put everything on our existing line. If we could gain 5% more efficiency on the line, it will repay [pay for itself].”
After the first DYNACS were purchased and in production, Nilsson was pleased to report
“We gained 18% in efficiency. More than three times than [what] I had said to myself!”
Absolut initially installed three DYNACs but have since purchased eight more.
In this video, Hakan Nilsson explains how Absolut uses DYNAC for line control to keep the “masters” of the lines runnig. DYNAC absorbs the stoppages and meters out the bottles back on the line. Absolut makes full use of the DYNAC-centric line philosophy.
“DYNACS are a smart solution that will help a lot of filling companies to achieve better performance.” Stated Jasper Hilhorst, Automation Engineer.
