Redpack Packaging Machinery twin lane rig mounted HTS flowrapping machine system
Redpack Packaging Machinery have manufactured another unique HTS flow wrapping system. Designed for one of Britain’s major producers of Salad Products the new flowrapping system automates the packaging of whole Celery. The aim of the new design was to reduce the number of production operatives, speed up the grading and flowrapping process, reduce the time from harvesting to packing and reduce product handling.
The Redpack Packaging machinery flow wrapping system has two phase feeders and flowrapper modules joined together to form a twin lane machine with each side capable of flowrapping product at speeds of up to 70ppm. The whole celery is graded and is automatically conveyed to either of the flowrapper lanes. The wrapped product out-feeds from the flowrapping modules onto 90 degree conveyors and then to a packing station with rotary turntables.
Redpack Packaging Machinery, who have many years’ experience of providing flow wrapping machines for fresh produce for both rig and packhouse applications, were aware that the finished flowrapper 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 possibly being on the supermarket shelves the following day”
"Whatever the size and shape we've got it flowrapped"
