Bagging line for inclusions
Inclusions specialist Pecan Deluxe Candy (Europe) has made a significant investment in a new, bespoke packaging line that will increase the company’s bagging capability by up to 400%.
The turn-key solution, set up in a dedicated sterile unit, enables Pecan Deluxe not only to increase its bagging capacity, but also to significantly reduce to just seconds the time that frozen goods are exposed to ambient conditions. In addition, the transition time can be adjusted for delicate products and the bag size selected from 150mm width for larger bags to 60mm for sachets, ensuring increased versatility.
The multi-head weigher caters for individual portions, from 8g to 2kg. The new packaging line can operate at up to 100 bags per minute, includes an integral metal detector and a dedicated turntable for final-stage quality checking and packing.
The new system was constructed to Pecan Deluxe’s bespoke specifications by Yamato and follows another major investment in a new, dedicated European cold extrusions plant, which ensures that high volume orders are fulfilled as efficiently and rapidly as possible.
