PA help Arthur Mallon Foods increase production speeds

IMAG0695Arthur Mallon Foods is one of the leading Irish sausage producers, who have been creating award winning sausages since 1942 from County Monaghan.

The company needed to upgrade their top seal tray sealer and were looking for a machine that would offer an increase in output in line with their production target. Since the introduction of a PA tray sealer, Mallon Foods have been able to increase their production speeds by approximately 40%.

Apart from the increased production speeds, the PA tray sealer is a user friendly machine with much quicker tool changeovers.

Mallon Foods purchased a fully electric eclipse SL4 tray sealer which has been designed to address the environmental impact of packaging operations by reducing the user’s power consumption by up to 90%. The in-line, fully electric SL4 is a small footprint machine capable of sealing 75 packs per minute.

Featuring PA’s Powerdrive™ technology, the SL4 is a fully electric machine and operates without using any compressed air, therefore offering savings of up to 98% of the running costs of conventional pneumatically operated tray sealers. This enables food producers to demonstrate a real commitment to environmental issues, whilst delivering a competitive operating cost.

John Fyfe Production Manager at Arthur Mallon Foods commented: “The team at PA have been very easy to deal with, their response times and communication was excellent. PA actually installed the machine ahead of schedule. Since it`s installation, we have found the machine very easy to operate, very reliable with tool changeovers being achieved quickly”.

Packaging Automation Ltd was established in 1963 and is a leading UK manufacturer of tray sealing and pot filling and sealing machinery.

PA can offer customers a tray sealer or pot filler for a wide range of applications in the food industry including fresh produce packing such as salad, tomato, strawberry and soft fruit packing, fish, seafood, meat and chicken packing (including vacuum packing and skin packing), ready meal sealing and packing, and pot or tub denesting, filling and sealing for puddings and sauces.
