Major Asia Supplier Adds 4th Snack Foods Packaging Line
A major Asian food handler, looking to meet increasing demand for snack foods, expressed a growing need for flexibility to accommodate their product range. They came to Jacob White Packaging to add a fourth packaging line with the following requirements:
Following a site visit to understand the company’s current procedures and processes, as well as understanding in detail the solutions they would like to put in place, we were able to install a multi-product, fully automated snack cartoning machine.
These machines use vacuum pick off and product filling functionality, with continuously moving flighted chains that move the packaging line efficiently, automatically sealing the carton and offering the option of manual intervention if required. This offers greater quality control while increasing efficiency and maintaining mandatory hygiene requirements.
Our customer chose the NS-X 5 which offered them a fully automated solution, with interchangeable carton erector, automatic and carefully controlled product placement (including manual intervention option), and carton sealing all in one machine. The changeover points – for size and speed changes – came fitted with quick release mechanism to offer fast and easy changes with no additional parts required.
This packaging machine also came equipped with a “no carton, no product” reject unit which discards the product outside the guard line of the machine. Made from stainless steel this automated packing machine was perfect for a snack foods environment, where hygiene standards are of the highest importance.
“We were happy with the solution Jacob White suggested and were impressed by their knowledge of the snack foods cartoning sector. We needed greater flexibility as our current set up simply wasn’t enough to meet our growing needs.
The simple changeover process was perfect for us and meant that we could switch product lines without changing any parts. Jacob White set the machine according suit our exact requirements discussed during the consultation phase.
We have been happy with the service and packaging machines from Jacob White and were confident in engaging them to add the fourth production line. The company has an excellent reputation and a proven track record with us so we had no hesitation.
We’re already noticing better flexibility and are continuing to grow within the snack food industry in Asia.”
