CASE PACKAGING OF BAGS WITH EXTRUDED SNACKS
Case erecting, filling and closing on a small footprint.
Our customer has an existing production line for extruded snacks, so the given space for a packaging machine to fit into the production building is limited. However, there is a requirement for complete automation of the end-of-line packaging, for bags filled with onion rings, to include, case erecting, filling and closing.
Our solution is a packaging machine that combines gentle product handling by means of active product guiding, with maximum flexibility in case packaging. When building the machines, the focus was on the requirements for a direct connection between the machine and the production line. The production line generates such a high output that a 1: 1 connection for the complete system of case erecting, filling and closing is the most suitable procedure for line efficiency. With our standard dedicated snacks solution we have a smart solution for our customer to integrate both the case erection and the case closure into the packaging machine, in a space-saving manner while also taking a “clean design” into account for food production.
The limited space in the production building was a real challenge, because the machine had to erect, fill and close the cases. Our HFP® Base is designed as a combined monobloc application and ideally suited for use for packaging sensitive snack bags.“
