A 100-year-old seafood canning company gets a new bundling machine to meet consumer demand.
August 13, 2015
When California seafood canning company Chicken of the Sea International saw more of its customers buying multi-packs of shelf-stable seafood, it decided it needed a new bundling machine that could shrinkwrap multiple cans into a package.
The Bosch Pack 301 ID inverted dwell horizontal flow wrapper packages difficult-to-handle products that require hermetic sealing including products that need modified atmosphere packaging; the inverted film transport also makes the wrapper suitable for handling soft, flexible products and multipacks.
Able to support tray, pad or unsupported pack styles, the Standard-Knapp 298 Tritium Trayshrink packer has a wrapping module that can be fully customized to follow the height and length of the final pack; the module runs up to 120 trays/min. and offers multi-axis control.
The Campbell Revolution horizontal flow wrapper features an Allen-Bradley servo drive and controls, a digital film feed servo drive, sanitary modular design, servo cutting head drive and production speeds up to 600 packages/min.
