Success with Automated Packaging
Asian Food Company Sees Production Success with Automated Packaging Machine
Geographical Location: Thailand, Asia
Industry/Product Lines: Food packaging, Snack Food
A large Asian food handler in the process of modernising their food packaging production line, expressed a growing need for multi-bag cartons. They subsequently came to Jacob White Packaging with the following requirements:
- Multi bag carton packing
- Pouch collation
- Complete automation
- No human intervention in order to meet hygiene standards
Following a site visit to better 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 fully automatic multi-bag packaging lines.
These lines will collate pouches from multi-bag filling machines, using an individual cartoner. These fully automated packaging lines ensure the product is hygienically made and packed without human intervention, ensuring customers of a completely safe product.
The End Result
Our customer chose the NS-X 5 automatic cartoner which offered them a completely automated solution, with an integrated carton erector, automatic and carefully controlled product placement, and box sealing all in one machine. The customer was also impressed with the ease of use, quick and uncomplicated size changing, allowing flexibility on product lines.
This packaging machine also comes 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 ideal for a food environment, where hygiene standards are paramount.
To ensure the speed of operations is maximised, loaded cartons are discharged from the machine using powered belts.
From the customer
“This was the right machine for our processes and the variable speed and box sides allow us to accommodate changing demands from our customers, with these changes typically taking less than 5 minutes – meaning minimum downtime.
The affordable cost meant we have been able to continue to invest in modernisation of our operations and has permitted us to grow our operations. We ordered from Jacob White as we needed to be certain of the final quality of the machine, and this long-standing company are known for their after-sales support. We’ve already added new product faces following our growth”
