Food firm Huegli installs new Linkx tray erector

Food ingredients producer Huegli has installed a new Linkx TF500 tray erector with electro-pneumatic controls at its plant in Redditch

The company recently decide to upgrade its packaging operations for sachets of cook-in sauces. Key requirements for the machine were that it should be versatile, dependable and capable of future enhancement, and also that it should have a low initial purchase price.

After exploring the available options, Huegli decided to purchase a Linkx TF500 machine, a decision that was partly influenced by the very positive experience Huegli has had of working with Linkx and using Linkx machines in the past.

The Linkx TF500 with electro-pneumatic controls has been specifically developed as an entry-level machine that provides cost-effective access to automatic tray erection.

It can handle board blanks up to 500 mm x 500 mm and can erect almost any format of tray, including the shelf-ready trays with high backs and low fronts that are used in the Huegli application. The machine incorporates, as standard, a two-gun hot-melt glue system.

In this application, the formed and glued trays are presented automatically to the production line operatives, who load them manually with sauce sachets.
