Automated conveying solution for space limited application

27 June 2016

When moving production equipment from an old factory to merge two production units into one, Lantmännen Cerealia AB in Sweden, worked with FlexLink to create a hygienic conveying solution which fitted into the limited space available. 

A transport solution was needed for unpackaged pancakes and crepes. Due to the fragile nature of the products, once they had started their journey through the factory, they could not be removed from the conveyor. This presented quite a challenge.

FlexLink completed off-site tests prior to installation to ensure smooth, friction-free handling, in addition to installing easy to clean conveyors to help meet the required hygiene standards for the bakery. The resulting solution utilised the entire volume of the factory – with conveyors installed from floor to ceiling – while ensuring careful transportation of these delicate products.

The bakery’s investment has led to a factory that today produces double the volume it was able to achieve previously, without compromising on capacity, hygiene or flexibility. The factory has high accessibility through robust and safe transport solutions and the staff can vary products and packaging types in the same system, using minimal conversion.

Last, but definitely not least, the cleaning process has become both effective and safe, giving an even and satisfying result. With this investment, the future for the customer looks brighter than ever!
