Piniol AG: Design and construction of a press-fit device

Durrer's semi-automatic press-in device is a real relief for Piniol AG employees. Fatigue, pain and quality problems are a thing of the past. Piniol produces and distributes products for the therapy and wellness sector, including massage oils, room fragrances, and cold baths. Filling bottle rollers is monotonous and repetitive work.


Manually pressing the rollers into the bottle especially caused pain in the hands. Therefore, they were looking for a mechanical solution. Durrer analysed the initial situation and the requirements, and proposed several solutions: from a mechanical auxiliary device to a fully automatic system.

Finally, a semi-automatic press-in device was implemented. It reduces the workload on employees and guarantees consistent processing quality.
