Helping food manufacturers manage the ever changing-face of packaging

19 October 2012

Getting products on the shelves of retailers across the country is a hugely complex operation and with so many moving parts, any minor problem can have a serious impact on a brand’s bottom line. Along with the actual production of goods, the packaging process is the most important aspect of any food and drink manufacturing line.

Ensuring that the correct volume of products are packed accurately and to a high quality is of the up most importance to a brand. If it is done incorrectly they can suffer from reputational damage that can take years to repair, so the technology must be reliable and efficient.

In order to meet these demands, Yamato Scale Dataweigh has recently launched a brand new, high-speed addition to its multihead-weighing portfolio, the Dataweigh Omega. Aimed predominantly at the food, confectionary, snack, powder and detergent sectors, the machine applies groundbreaking technology to improve productivity – operating at speeds of more than 200 weighments per minute (WPM) and increasing yield weights of up to 1.6%. The system also boasts improved environmental responsiveness by reducing power consumption by 60%.

The system benefits from new high frequency technology, which withstands any unbalanced loads and minimises load cell vibrations. A lattice digital filter adapts to optimum weighing conditions and allows for high-speed operations, whilst a dual load cell eliminates low frequency vibrations. Meanwhile, a toggle-less gating mechanism reduces the mechanical impact on the load cell and suppresses the bucket gating noise. Individually adjustable collating chutes also facilitate high-speed discharge, ensuring flexibility and enhanced product diversity.

In addition to improved productivity, the Dataweigh Omega series is one of the first multihead weighers that is fully IP67-compliant and can be easily cleaned thanks to a polygon shaped bucket. The streamlined main body prevents contaminants by reducing irregularities in the surface while special bonding means buckets have no space for dust and bacteria propagation.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
