Flexible packaging line for packing baked snacks into either lock type cases or flow wrapped multipacks

Project Brief

To design and manufacture a flexible packing system that would allow our client to meet demand with a flexible production process.

Technical Solution

  • High speed robot loader
  • Flexible semi-automatic manual pack stations
  • Lock type case erectors for crash-lock cases
  • Flexible line control system

Results

The investment led us to automate an off-line (WIP) production process, significantly improving productivity, reducing the production lead-time from 5 days to 1 day and increasing packing efficiency by 30%.
