Redpack Packaging Machinery HTS flowrapping and collating packaging system for celery hearts
Redpack Packaging Machinery latest unique HTS Flow wrapping machie system was designed for one of Britain’s major producers of Salad Products to automate twin packaging of Celery Hearts. The aim of the new design was to reduce the number of production operatives, speed up the grading and wrapping process, reduce the time from harvesting to packing and reducing product handling.
The Celery hearts are harvested and conveyed into the rig at up to 140 pieces/minute where they are dynamically check weighed, conveyed via a Redpack Phase feeder to a collating module, then through the flowrapping module and out onto a rotary turntable with box packing station; the entire system is integrated with the Rig feed conveyor system.
Redpack Packaging Machinery, who have many years’ experience in the provision of flowrappers for fresh produce in both rig and packhouse applications, were aware that the finished flow wrapping machine system had to be capable of withstanding the harsh conditions and movement of a field harvesting rig.
As Redpack comment “In spite of the challenges of designing machines for field rig applications we are aware of the importance for our customer to supply Supermarkets with the freshest possible product, and it can’t get fresher than being packed at the moment of harvesting and being on the supermarket shelves the following day”
Whatever the size and shape we've got it flowrapped!
