How long does it take your packing line to produce 1200 packs?
Can you beat 15 minutes?
That’s how long it takes for a major meat producer’s new integrated packing line to take 1200kg of minced meat from the extruders and deliver fully labelled and quality-controlled one kilo packs, layered into Eurocrates.
The line has been running for nearly a year now, and during that time no seal-defective trays have been rejected by the customer, a leading supermarket chain. What’s more, this excellent line performance, supported by an efficient supply chain, has been able to deliver a nine-day shelf life.
Overall Equipment Efficiency has never been below 80% and sometimes reaches 90%.
So, as you can see, there are clear benefits in having an integrated packing line solution from Ishida – a single-source manufacturer with single supplier design and project management.
