Semi-Automatic Rice Packaging
Semi-Automatic Cartoner for UAE Rice Packer
At a leading industry exhibition, Jacob White Packaging were approached by a new rice packaging business from the UAE. The client was growing busier, selling rice throughout the UAE and other Middle Eastern countries. They had the following requirements for their machine:
- Semi-automated packaging operation
- Ability to adapt to different products quickly
- User-friendly, minimum training needed
- Top product and quality control
- Able to meet strict hygiene standards for food packaging
- Reliable after sales service
Jacob White had the semi-automatic NS-X 3.1 machine on our exhibition stand, which originally piqued the client’s interest. We knew straightaway that this semi-automatic packaging machine would tick all the boxes for this client, due to the nature of its operation and simplicity of use.
The NS-X 3.1 is perfect for a food packaging environment and, like all our machines, offers fast and easy alteration to suit a wide range of packaging requirements – with no parts changeover required.
The End Result:
We offered a demonstration of the machine using the client’s own cartons. The client was immediately confident that the NS-X 3.1 offered them a complete solution to easily handle multiple product and speed variations.
The semi-automatic cartoner works on demand from the operator, delivering on the need for top product and quality control and uses a rotary vacuum pickup to erect cartons. The machine places the carton onto continuously moving flighted chains for the operator to load the product. Sealing is automated, and cartons are discharged from the cartoner using powered belts.
With stainless steel shafts, frame and guides, this automated packing machine ensures that food hygiene standards can be easily met. The variable product size and speed features are unique to Jacob White machines and no parts changes are needed to enable multiple product runs. This increases consistency and efficiency over short production runs.
From the Customer:
“As we approached the Jacob White stand, we were impressed at our first look at the NS-X 3.1 machine. Once we had seen it in action, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for.
Jacob White were friendly and professional and their industry experience was evident. Our machine was built and delivered in good time and we’re already enjoying the enhanced flexibility it has given us. We’re ready to expand our range of products and packaging now and look forward to even more growth as a result. Thank you, Jacob White.”
