  • SOUTHERN SALADS Avanza Con Movimiento Continuo

    by User Not Found | Dec 18, 2015

    Southern SaladsSouthern Salads,con sede en Kent en el Reino Unido ha instalado recientemente dos Novus 350S para empacar su lechuga Iceberg y otras ensaladas en hojas. Esta instalación forma parte de una importante inversión en su planta de procesamiento y empaque.

    Southern Salads es un negocio familiar gran éxito. Empezando de los mercados de Londres, su fundador CEO & Ray Boakes desarrolló el negocio mediante el suministro de lechuga picada a cadenas de restaurantes multinacionales y ha continuado a servir a este mercado desde entonces. Southern Salads es un cliente histórico Hayssen Flexible Systems que utilizan varias envasadoras intermitentes Sandiacre TG 320 para empacar sus productos.

    Cuando decidieron seguir adelante con el embalaje de movimiento continuo, fuè natural elegir una solucion de Hayssen Flexible Systems.

    La nuevas máquinas Novus han sido diseñados específicamente para mejorar la velocidad, la integridad de los paquetes y reducir los costos de mantenimiento y de servicio respeto a las máquinas actuales.

    El dispositivo acomodador de producto, único en su diseño, evita que el producto penetre entre las mordazas y ofrecer tiempos de sellado extendidos y una mayor integridad del sello de los paquetes. El exprimidor independiente de las bolsas de la Novus reduce los niveles de oxígeno en la bolsa, mientras que la función de inyección de gas ralentiza el crecimiento de bacterias, aumentando la vida útil del producto. La capacidad de Hayssen Flexible Systems de suministrar máquinas con un aumento garantizado de la producción además de la integridad del sello fue un factor de decisión clave para ayudarnos a servir mejor a nuestros clientes", dice Andrew Boakes, Director General de Southern Salads.

    Andrew Boakes explica, además, "Después de haber experimentado durante muchos años el servicio de soporte técnico de Hayssen Flexible Systems  fue una decisión fácil continuar nuestra relación con ellos. Su equipo técnico está siempre disponible para dar apoyo y asesoramiento que valoramos mucho.

  • Southern Salads Si Aggiorna, Acquistando Una LInea Continua

    by User Not Found | Dec 16, 2015

    Southern SaladsSouthern Salads in Kent, nel Regno Unito, ha recentemente installato due nuove Novus 350 per confezionare lattuga e altre tipologie di insalata. Questi impianti fanno parte di un investimento importante negli impianti di processo.

    Southern Salads è un’azienda a conduzione familiare. “È partito tutto dai mercati di Londra”, ci racconta il CEO e fondatore Ray Boakes, colui che ha potenziato l’azienda fornendo lattuga già tagliata a multinazionali e catene di ristoranti.

    Southern Salads è un cliente di lunga data di Hayssen Flexible Systems. In passato ha acquistato confezionatrici verticali intermittente modello Sandiacre TG 320 per il confezionamento dei loro prodotti. Al momento di decidere di acquistare una confezionatrice continua, era logico scegliere la tecnologia Hayssen Flexible Systems. Le nuove confezionatrici Novus sono state studiate specificatamente per migliorare la velocità, l’integrità dell’imballo e ridurre i costi di manutenzione e di servizio nei confronti delle macchine esistenti.

    Il dispositivo “stager” nella confezionatrice Novus impedisce al prodotto di finire sulle pinze saldanti Quali-seal, offrendo così tempi di tenuta più estese ed una saldatura maggiore. Il dispositivo “independent bag squeezer” riduce il livello di ossigeno nel sacchetto, contenendo la crescita batterica nel dispositivo di iniezione gas, incrementando la longevità sulla shelf-life del prodotto. "Hayssen Flexible Systems fornisce impianti che garantiscono l’aumento della produttività, l'integrità delle confezioni, ed è stato questo il fattore chiave che ci ha portato all’acquisto della Novus", afferma Andrew Boakes, direttore di Souther Salad.

    Andrew Boakes continua "Dopo aver sperimentato per anni l’eccellente servizio cliente di Hayssen Flexible Systems, è stata una decisione semplice continuare il nostro rapporto. Il team di tecnici è sempre disponibile a dare sostegno e consulenza".

  • Southern Salads Moves Forward with Continuous Motion

    by User Not Found | Dec 03, 2015

    Southern SaladsSouthern Salads, based in Kent in the UK has recently installed two Novus 350s to pack their Iceberg lettuce and other leaves. This installation is part of a major investment in their processing and packing facility.

    Southern Salads is a hugely successful family run business. Starting life off in markets in London, CEO & founder Ray Boakes developed the business by supplying shredded lettuce to multinational high street restaurant chains and has continued to serve this market ever since.

    Southern Salads is a long-standing Hayssen Flexible Systems’ customer who utilise several intermittent Sandiacre TG 320 machines to pack their products. When they decided to move forward with continuous motion packing, it was a logical move to choose Hayssen Flexible Systems’ machinery. Their new Novus produce specification machines have been specifically designed to improve speeds, pack integrity and decrease maintenance and servicing costs against current machines.

    The unique product stager device prevents product from getting into the end seals and the Novus’ Quali-seal jaws offer extended sealing times and increased pack seal integrity. The Novus’s independent bag squeezer reduces oxygen levels in the bag, while the gas flushing feature slows down bacterial growth, increasing the longevity of the product’s shelf life. "Hayssen Flexible Systems’ ability to supply machines with a guaranteed increase in output and seal integrity was a key decision making factor to help us better serve our customers,” says Andrew Boakes, Managing Director at Southern Salads.

    Andrew Boakes explains further “Having experienced Hayssen Flexible Systems’ outstanding after sales service support for many years it was an easy decision to continue our relationship with them. Their technical team are always readily available to give support and advice which we highly value.”

  • Five Star Fish Gives Fives Stars to Hayssen

    by User Not Found | Oct 29, 2015

    AuraConstant investment in people and equipment has made Five Star Fish one of the most respected suppliers to the Foodservice market.  The UK’s leading supplier of fish products, Five Star Fish, based in Grimsby, has recently purchased two turnkey solutions from Hayssen Flexible Systems 

    Five Star Fish, part of the 2 Sisters Food Group, is a primary and secondary whitefish processor specialising in a wide range of bespoke fish products, for the catering and foodservice market. Their products consist of fresh fish products, IQF, breaded and battered fish. 

    Mike Samphire, Engineering Manager at Five Star Fish, was delighted with their new Aura VFFS machines, the installation and performance. 

    “The install and commissioning phase went well and according to plan, which meant there was no disruption to our overall production requirements. With Hayssen Flexible Systems’ help we were able to find the ideal full technical solution to suit our budget,” comments Mike Samphire.

    Five Star Fish

    As part of the project, Hayssen Flexible Systems offered Five Star Fish a pre-shipment inspection and operator familiarisation, allowing them to review the machines prior to arrival on site. 

    “We had regular communication with Hayssen Flexible Systems’ project management team throughout the entire order process, keeping us up to date with what was happening with our systems during the entire manufacturing process. The support from customer services, including the availability of spares from Nottingham was a definite bonus for us.”

    Due to production demands, Five Star Fish needed their new machines a week earlier than originally expected. Hayssen Flexible Systems was able to meet this late request and achieved the early delivery. The Aura 450LF VFFS intermittent packaging machines complete with Yamato weighers were installed in two days over a weekend, enabling production to catch up the backlog after the first shift, thereby ensuring that there was no disruption.

    Five Star Fish's Aura 450LFs are currently on site packing pillow packs of IQF breaded fish fillets at various weights ranging from 220g – 2700g at speeds of approximately 60ppm.

    MercaSIDMercaSID è un’azienda Dominicana dedita ad offrire i migliori prodotti per la famiglia, per la casa e per l’industria. Fondata a Santo Domingo nel 1937 come SID – Sociedad Industrial Dominicana – e inizialmente impegnata nella produzione di oli vegetali da cucina, l’azienda ha poi esteso la sua gamma nel corso degli anni introducendo nuove varietà di oli, margarina e detersivi.  

    MercaSID S.A. ha preso avvio nel 1999 dalla fusione di SID con il grosso produttore alimentare Dominicano Mercalia, S.A.

    Attualmente, l’azienda è associata con marchi leader di mercato a livello mondiale e la sua offerta include articoli di diverse industrie, come prodotti agro-industriali, agrumi, bestiame e lavorazione carni, industria dell’acqua e floricoltura. MercaSID

    Poiché il lavoro continua a crescere, MercaSID ha deciso di lanciare il “Plum Cake” come nuovo prodotto che andrà ad ampliare la sua già notevole gamma. Così MercaSID ha recentemente acquistato ed avviato una nuovissima linea di produzione di Plum Cake, installando nel fine linea un impianto di confezionamento all’avanguardia della Schib, un’azienda che fa parte della divisione Hayssen Flexible Systems.

    La signora Ligia Bonetti Du-Breil, Presidente di MercaSID, e il signor Osvaldo González, Responsabile Acquisti, hanno reputato loro partner ideale il fabbricante italiano Schib, produttore di macchine confezionatrici orizzontali, in virtù della comprovata esperienza di Schib nel settore della panetteria.

    Il team della Schib dichiara congiuntamente “Siamo orgogliosi di supportare MercaSID in questo nuovo progetto nel settore della panetteria e siamo entusiasti per la crescita della sua quota di mercato”.

    La linea di confezionamento per Plum Cake installata presso MercaSID è in grado di confezionare fino a 300 prodotti al minuto. Il sistema prevede un modulo basculante per la gestione dei ranghi. Questo modulo, completo di un dispositivo di allineamento, provvede a distanziare, allineare e distribuire i ranghi di prodotto che arrivano dalla linea di processo. Adeguati nastri di trasferimento e una curva a 90° fanno poi avanzare i Plum Cake verso un caricatore elettronico in linea, che controlla il flusso di prodotto e provvede ad alimentare una macchina confezionatrice flow pack servo assistita. Tutto il processo di confezionamento è controllato da una piattaforma Rockwell Allen-Bradley.

    Michelle’s Bakery is a local favorite near Rutherford College, North Carolina. Alongside their grill, Michelle’s Bakery distributes a large variety of homemade cakes, pies, cookies and other desserts. Michelle’s Bakery recently trialed a newRose Forgrove Merlin Blu flow wrapper.

    Tammy Cannon, Co-owner of Michelle’s Bakery, oversees the packaging of their bakery product lines, and was happy to accept the Merlin Blu on a trial basis. Positioned for substantial growth, the company had a need for automated packaging equipment.  Michelle’s Bakery has since purchased that same Merlin Blu, which steadily wraps cookies day after day. One of the features that appealed to Cannon was the hygienic features, with tool-less removal of guarding, which makes for fast and easy cleaning of the flow wrapper. Another benefit of the Merlin that led to a final sale is its capability to handle a wide range of products with its easy to use adjustable forming box and wide jaws. Taking advantage of these features and the user-friendly operator interface, Michelle’s Bakery can easily switch from wrapping small cookies to full size pies. The B&R Industrial Automation control system with color icon controls make it easy for Cannon’s team to set packaging parameters and make quick changeovers.

    Ryan Glenn, Horizontal Sales Leader for Hayssen Flexible Systems, coordinated the project with Michelle’s Bakery. He comments, “I initially bought one of Michelle’s Bakery pound cake slices while traveling. I was impressed with their high-quality bakery products.  Their close proximity to our global headquarters in Duncan, SC, where the Merlin Blu is manufactured, made them an ideal candidate for a beta installation. The Merlin Blu is an ideal flow wrapper to help them achieve packaging that effectively displays Michelle’s Bakery tasty treats while maintaining the freshness of their products. I look forward to partnering with Michelle’s Bakery as their operations continue to grow.”

    Currently, Michelle’s Bakery is using the Merlin Blu to wrap their famous chocolate oatmeal cookies in single serve packs at 50 packs per minute, as well as whole coconut pies at a rate of 25 per minute.
