New automated onion palletiser improves productivity for Bedfordshire Growers

Food packing firm Bedfordshire Growers has announced that its new automated palletiser has helped it to improve productivity

It said its Symach automated palletiser was recently installed for its onion packing line.

The new automated palletiser can cope with up to 10 tonnes per hour. In a statement, the firm also said that the palletiser also “accurately places the nets in the optimum position for maximum stability, and then wraps the entire pallet in heavy duty film ensuring the integrity of the finished product”.

Bedfordshire Growers sales director Tim Elcombe said: “The new palletiser has made a huge difference to our packing line. Our activities are directed at providing locally grown fresh produce which is packed and delivered with the minimal delay.

“As well as speeding up the whole packing line, the improved accuracy and efficiency in stacking now means each pallet can now safely accommodate an additional 100kg.  This represents a space saving of over 10% which not only improves the service we offer but will also will have a direct benefit on transport costs and help to reduce our carbon footprint even further.”
