Shrinkwrapper for Acorn Dairies

18 August 2011

Yorkshire Packaging Systems recently installed its own designed and manufactured SS120 heavy duty stainless-steel side feed shrinkwrapper in to Acorn Dairies as part of a major expansion and efficiency drive, as the dairy has taken on new contracts

The SS120 is specially designed to cope with the demanding environment of a dairy. It is manufactured completely in stainless steel with low-voltage waterproof electrics and a unique high-speed low maintenance sealing jaw is utilised to provide absolute reliability and consistency of the seal at speed in a wet environment.

The SS 120 provide absolute flexibility in a small floorspace and so was the logical choice for Acorn dairies who needed to upgrade an older mild steel less heavy duty wrapper that was beginning to show its age and become unreliable, with backup and support becoming increasingly difficult to source.

The SS 120 can wrap any trayless pack configuration required by a dairy, whether in bottles or cartons at a speed of up to 14 packs per minute and thanks to a series of innovative improvements with regards to change parts for different pack sizes and collations, changeover times are drastically reduced with very few change parts now required.

Graham Tweddle, Dairy Owner, explained ''Our old unit came to the end of its natural life and so we had to invest in new equipment. YPS was the logical choice due to their history of supplying our market and understanding our needs quite apart from having a very heavy duty reliable shrink wrapper. They were the most attentive to detail, easiest to deal with and crucially for me, manufactured the equipment in the UK, with the back and support this implies.''

Dave Wood, YPS Director, explained: ”Being able to design and manufacture the equipment ourselves, with over 30 years of experience means we can be sure the specification required is correct. We fought off some strong competition, but our specification of equipment and proven track record came through'’.
