A new world record of 4,082 consecutive, successful splices was set by Jean Carlo Cerdas of New England Sheets. Jean Carlo Cerdas successfully made every splice he attempted from November 11, 2013 to July 15, 2014.

Representatives from MarquipWardUnited and New England Sheets celebrated the new record with Cerdas on Friday October 10, 2014. Cerdas was presented an embroidered world record jacket and, in keeping with the traditional belt-buckle theme for the MarquipWardUnited Century Club, a World Champion Splicer Operator Belt.

The record was set in coordination with the MarquipWardUnited Century Club Program in which operators are recognized for achieving 100, 500 and 1000 consecutive splices without a miss. Enrollment in the program requires a training session with MarquipWardUnited Splicer Trainer John Podmolik, who audits the machines, materials and practices before providing detailed instructions on getting the best out of a MarquipWardUnited machine.

Cerdas’ new world record of 4,082 eclipsed the previous world record of 3,741 splices without a miss set by Tony Jimenez of Independence Corrugated, Oak Creek, Wisconsin on March 10, 2014. It is no coincidence that both recent world reord holders are from Schwarz Partner Plants. Independence Corrugated commissioned software to automatically track, and continuously display operator performance by machine. This technolgy and the Century Club Program has been embraced by all Schwarz Partner facilities with many operators now over the 2,000 mark and counting.

Rose Forgrove has introduced their latest flow wrapper, with extensive hygienic features. The Merlin “Blu” is innovatively engineered with several tool-less removal features and easy-to-clean design suitable for a wide range of challenging industries.

Michael Dann, Director for Rose Forgrove, notes that the Blu Series Merlin flow wrapper has a number of features that make it inherently hygienic and easy to use. “The Merlin Blu infeed can be dismantled without tools in less than 2 minutes and has a quick-release infeed catch tray. The folding box is self-threading and simple to adjust.” Dann added, “This flow wrapper sets a new standard in hygienic flow wrapping technology for its class and delivers tremendous value to our customers.”

The hygienic features also include sloped surfaces and rounded legs that minimize debris build up. The easy-to-clean features are matched by technical highlights of “no product-no bag”, a feature that minimizes film waste, and an intuitive icon-based interface for fast, repeatable changeovers. The new guard design provides operators a clear view of the product throughout the wrapping process.

“The greatest interest for this model is coming from bakery, confectionery and fresh produce companies,” said Ian Bickerdike, Business Development Leader – Horizontal Systems. “The versatility is there for a wide range of food applications, as well as personal care and medical/pharmaceutical flow wrapping applications; which makes the Merlin “Blu” a perfect machine for contract packers. The design team has also minimized the footprint substantially for this model.”

Dann also alluded to the immediate future of Rose Forgrove’s product line, saying, “We have invested in new engineering team members in support of a major horizontal wrapper systems growth initiative. Our ‘One Global Team’ culture has seen the benefits of leveraging all capabilities to gain a competitive advantage in the market.”

The production rate for the Rose Forgrove Merlin Blu is 100 (single jaw) to 200 (twin jaw) packages per minute, and package range is up to 120mm high by 300m wide.

Rose Forgrove distinguishes itself through innovative engineering that focuses on delivering exceptional performance and functionality without compromising durability or simplicity. One of the longest standing and most respected flow wrap manufacturers in the packaging industry, Rose Forgrove’s tailored wrapping systems are hygienic, easy to operate and suitable for a vast range of applications.

“I’ve never seen a more kind, generous, compassionate culture in any organization. To be honest, I didn’t believe it existed outside my mind. It’s been a life-changing day for me.”
That was what Harvard Business professor Amy Cuddy had to say about her visit to two Barry-Wehmiller facilities in northern Wisconsin last weekend. She was joined by our friend, author and thought leader Simon Sinek, to begin researching our company for a potential joint writing project. If you’re not familiar with Amy, much of what she writes and speaks about (her Ted Talk is the second most viewed!) deals specifically with how body language affects interaction. Her thinking in this area is very much in alignment with what we teach through Barry-Wehmiller University.
Simon is a good friend of the organization and featured us in his book, “Leaders Eat Last.” Although he has visited with our team members many times, he also came away touched by what he saw:
“This organization is built for people to exist together as human beings are meant to exist with each other,” Simon said. “We are built to take care of each other. What we witness here at Barry- Wehmiller is human beings as they are meant to be. Unfortunately we see it as the exception when it should be the rule.”
To learn more about Amy, watch Amy Cuddy Ted Talk.

McEntire Produce, headquartered in Columbia, SC, is a fresh produce processor, repacker and wholesaler serving the Southeast for over 70 years. McEntire Produce is always looking for ways to improve efficiency and increase speeds in their produce packaging lines to meet customer demand. After initially agreeing to be a beta testing production site for HayssenSandiacre’s Novus Produce vertical form fill seal machine, McEntire Produce has purchased the continuous motion machine for its exceptional performance.   McEntire Produce has been impressed with the Novus Produce Machine since shortly after receiving the machine. Tom Ribken, HayssenSandiacre Sales Executive, represents the southeast U.S. and worked closely with McEntire Produce from install of beta machine to purchase. Ribken comments on McEntire Produce’s decision to go with the Novus, “The wow factor happened when this bagger consistently met speeds of 55 bpm for a compressed 5lb package of shredded lettuce.  The existing baggers in the plant are not capable of attaining the Novus bpm’s while consistently maintaining package integrity.”

McEntire’s Maintenance Manager comments, “We were looking for ways to increase speeds while maintaining clean end seals and low leaker rates. The Novus has delivered on all counts. Our business is continuing to grow and we are looking to add a second Novus combined with an Ishida scale in the near future.”

Along with impressive speeds, the Novus Produce machine also features an independently timed stager which prevents product from contaminating end seals resulting in package leaks.  Other features include independently timed bag squeezer to compress bag size, orbital style knife and Quali-seal jaws.  HayssenSandiacre has worked with national produce companies for many years and helped to pioneer pre-washed, packaged bags of salads/lettuce.  The new Novus Produce machine joins the Ultima family of machines to further extend HayssenSandiacre’s product line which are well-suited for fresh cut produce applications.

Reedley Office Featured on ABC-FresnoAs many in the industry can attest, the demand for skilled workers in American manufacturing is growing. The Thiele Technologies office in Reedley, Calif. was recently featured on the ABC affiliate in Fresno recently for the unique way they are combating the skills-gap problem that many companies are experiencing.

Despite heavy recruitment efforts, Thiele has experienced difficulty in finding the skilled workers that are needed to fill positions.

“For our technical positions, you definitely need either years of experience or [relevant] education,” Human Resources Manager Yolanda Escamilla said.

To combat the problem, Thiele has continued to develop its own workforce. Working with local colleges at multiple locations, Thiele  has developed a Co-Op program, which offers students a six-month paid internship. Humberto Duran, a mechanical engineer in Reedley, said he would not have known about Thiele’s opportunities if not for the program.

“I actually thought I would have to go out of the area to find a manufacturing job,” he said.

For employment opportunities at Thiele Technologies, please visit their careers page, here. For information on the Co-Op Program, please click on the link above.
