Meat & Poultry Packaging Success
UK Meat and Poultry Manufacturer Success with Manual Loading Machine
Geographical Location: UK
Industry/Product Lines: Food packaging
A UK-based meat and poultry business came to Jacob White to introduce a better way of packaging small volumes of different products. The customer needed to create consistency and increase both speed of operations and efficiency across the board. They had the following requirements as a priority:
- Multi-size capabilities
- Easy change over process
- Increase consistency
- Heavy duty manufacture with small footprint
- Must be compliant with regulations for food industry packaging
We visited site for our consultation process, where we were able to ascertain the exact needs of the client and gain a comprehensive view of their current set up. Understanding the company processes and procedures, we were able to quickly recommend our TFS NS carton sealing machine. These types of packaging machines are ideal for smaller production set ups and can offer a system that maintains operational and quality control with manual demand.
Operators erect the carton and insert the product manually. The boxed product is then automatically transferred via constantly moving flighted chains, sealed and discharged from the machine. The TFS NS carton sealing machine has a footprint of approximately 2m2 – ideal for the environment, with shafts and guards manufactured from Stainless Steel to ensure hygiene standards.
The customer selected the TFS NS on our recommendation and were able to begin realising the benefits immediately. The heavy duty build of the machine in a small footprint was exactly what they needed, and the speed and size variations enabled easy changeover with no parts involved.
Operators were able, with minimum training, to alter size within minutes, which offered the client greater flexibility to operate short run production lines for a wide variety of products.
From the Customer
“We came to Jacob White initially because they were local with a long-standing reputation. We realised we had made the right choice very quickly as it was clear that the experience and knowledge of the team was impressive. They took the time to really get to grips with our operations and to find out exactly what we needed to bring our company up to date.
The TFS NS has given us the big operations functionality we didn’t even know we didn’t have in our small production line set up! Already we’ve been able to create consistency and we have sped up production significantly. It has given us greater scope to handle a wider range of packaging and the changeover is swift and efficient.”
