Geographical Location: France, Europe
Industry/Product Lines: Food packaging, Frozen foods packaging
The client, a frozen food producer located in Northern France, came to Jacob White for a semi-automatic solution for each of their factories to help speed up production and increase consistency. Their main requirements were:
- Machines with speed and size variation capability
- Easy change over process
- Minimum training required
- Maintain user and quality control
- Robust and long-lasting solution
- Good after sales and service
The client also required assurance of maintenance and service reliability due to them being located outside the UK.
The Jacob White team visited site to gain a comprehensive perspective of the client’s current working procedures and processes and a better understanding of the solutions they really wanted. As a result of these consultations, we were able to recommend a semi-automatic packaging machine to tick all the boxes.
Introducing a semi-automated packaging line ensures consistency and increases efficiency while maintaining user control. Simple to operate with minimum training, the NS-X 3.1 offered the ideal solution with fast, easy size variation with no parts changes.
The End Result
The French frozen food company selected the NS-X 3.1 for both factories, which offered them the answer to all their requirements. The semi-automatic packaging machine was built to last from stainless steel, making it perfect for the frozen foods environment.
The extensive, variable speed range can be adjusted according to the product size and packaging material, or board weight and size adjustments can be made using a quick release/changeover mechanism with minimum downtime and no parts changes needed.
From the Customer
“We thought carefully before we selected the right manufacturer for the new packaging machines. We had contacted other suppliers here in France, as well as in Italy and Germany, but the combination of the quality of the packaging machines they build, the professional, yet friendly Jacob White team and the long-standing company reputation meant that we knew we’d made the right decision. We are reassured that after sales, servicing and maintenance aspects of our machines is taken care of with their European back-up network.
Installing the semi-automatic NS-X 3.1 machines in our factories has delivered on consistency and reduced our reliance on a manual production line. We’ve increased productivity significantly and can now handle short production runs more efficiently with the quick changeover facility.”
