Packaging Automation helps create new opportunities for Beacon Foods with pot filling line

When Edward Gough MD at Beacon foods, the UK’s leading specialist producer of roasted and char grilled vegetables and fruit ranges, relishes, chutneys and sauces saw an opportunity for new business openings he turned to Packaging Automation for an automatic pot filling and sealing machine.

 
Beacon installed an FP-6 model which is a compact automated pot filler and sealer with an operating speed of 40 cycles per minute. The machine is designed for frequent product
changeovers due to simple and lightweight change parts. Beacon can now deposit its extensive range of ready to use portions of compotes, chutneys, relishes, dips, sauces and certain roasted vegetables in pots ranging from 20 to 80 grammes.

 
Beacon had worked with PA in the past on other projects and had no hesitation in returning to them for their new project.

 
Edward said “With the new machine we can supply ready to use portions, which will be ideal for ready meals, airline meals, desserts and breakfast pots, to name but a few, It’s another exciting development with huge potential for the company.”

 
He continued, “We are extremely happy with the new machine, PA’s service and support were outstanding throughout the installation and commissioning period. The machine is able to hot and cold fill and seal reel-fed film lids, which further extends the packaging formats we are able to offer to our customers”

 
The versatility of the machine and its light and simple change parts, mean that pot size changes can be quickly accomplished. The machine can be supplied to seal reel-fed film or pre-cut lids and offers a number of options, including a date coder and a closed loop weight control system to automatically adjust fill volumes. The machine can also be used for dry fill such as cereal products as well as hot and cold liquid. Like many of PA’s machines, the FP-6 is available for seasonal hire as well as purchase.
