Gordian Strapping LTD, our distributor in the U.K. has provided Pinguin Lutosa with a sistematic solution at their site of King’s Lynn.
Pinguin Lutosa, a leading frozen vegetable processor boasts some of the best automated packing facilities in Europe. The Kings Lynn site is a state of the art production and packing site with capacity to produce over 120,000 tonnes of product p.a. Gordian has integrated a AVR 900 automatic pallet ring wrapper into Pinguin’s packaging line.
The machine replaced an ageing rotary arm wrapper and is part of a programme of upgrades to the automated packaging facility at Kings Lynn. It was essential that the Ring Wrapper matched the footprint of the old machine and was compatible with the existing conveyor and safety systems.
It was also vital for the new machine to overcome the costly issue of loose film tails which can lead to rejection of pallets by automated warehousing systems. Rapid installation over a weekend was critical to ensure minimum disruption to the freezing of fresh vegetable produce.
Pinguin Lutosa has the AVR 900 Ring Wrappers in operation at their site in Belgium and had no hesitation in installing another machine in the UK.
