Swabbing Robot

Swabbing is a manual method of lubricating moulds used to form glass bottles, which is made to take place during production. These lubrication activities, which are performed by workers, come with a number of problems.

The majority of factories that currently manufacture glass bottles use manual lubrication methods. This has now been made completely obsolete with the arrival of the Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot.
Socabelec S.A. has designed the first and most perfected Swabbing Robot in the world.

The mistakes and flaws encountered during swabbing are now a thing of the past courtesy of the arrival of Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot. The patented principle of Socabelec’s Swabbing Robot is that it sprays exactly the right quantity of lubricant into the moulds. Without requiring production to be stopped at any point, thereby making it the most productive solution in the world!

For maximum productivity, we use Glassline© Oil Swabmatic.

About us

Company portrait

In the early days, the company focused on electric cabling for the manufacturing industry.

In the 1980s, the company recruited its first university graduate before moving towards the computer-based design of sophisticated electrical wiring diagrams and the integration of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in production process monitoring systems.

In 1990, the company set up its own engineering department. From 1995 forward, activities started focusing on robotics, which saw the company turn into an integrator in the field of industrial automation and robotics.

Since 1997, true to its spirit as an integrator, Socabelec has been serving the nearby market at the heart of ‘Silice Valley’ as well as international customers.
