Integrated Packaging Lines Weigh and Bag Various Types of Cereals

Santiveri Healthy Food and Natural Alternative MedicineIn 1885, a young man named Jaime Santiveri in Barcelona, Spain was diagnosed with a severe lung disease. He tried every type of medicine available in the market at the time. The only option was to try a natural, alternative medicine and luckily for him, it was the right solution. With a healthy lifestyle and alternative medicine, Jaime Santiveri was able to successfully recover from the disease. So in 1914 he opened his first factory in Spain, where he produced his own products and the company has never stopped since.

Today, Santiveri S.L. packs various types of genuine and healthy products. Cereals and bakery products are weighed and bagged on  Hayssen Logic 35 vertical form fill seal machines. The packaging line is equipped with special accessories for creating stand-up  quad bags, ranging in size from 100g to 1Kg. In order to make perfect bags, the VFFS includes a nip drive metering roll, heated plate system and updated quad sealing system. The end result is a perfectly sealed and formed quad bag at production rates of more than 40 bags per minute. The nip roller system simplifies and secures the film movement avoiding film slip while increasing speed, as well as extending the life of silicone pull belts.

The customer visited Hayssen’s Italian factory in Padova and tested the Logic machine before it shipped to Spain. Javier Santiveri, grandson of the first Santiveri, says of this most recent order, “I buy Hayssen because I have several Simionato VFFS systems and through the years the service has evolved to meet our needs and we are satisfied.”

Southern Salads Continuous Motion PackagingSouthern Salads, based in Kent in the UK has recently installed two Novus 350s to pack their Iceberg lettuce and other leaves. This installation is part of a major investment in their processing and packing facility.

Southern Salads is a hugely successful family run business. Starting life off in markets in London, CEO & founder Ray Boakes developed the business by supplying shredded lettuce to multinational high street restaurant chains and has continued to serve this market ever since.

Southern Salads is a long-standing Hayssen Flexible Systems’ customer who utilise several intermittentSandiacre TG 320 machines to pack their products. When they decided to move forward with continuous motion packing, it was a logical move to choose Hayssen Flexible Systems’ machinery. Their new Novus produce specification machines have been specifically designed to improve speeds, pack integrity and decrease maintenance and servicing costs against current machines.

The unique product stager device prevents product from getting into the end seals and the Novus’ Quali-seal jaws offer extended sealing times and increased pack seal integrity. The Novus’s independent bag squeezer reduces oxygen levels in the bag, while the gas flushing feature slows down bacterial growth, increasing the longevity of the product’s shelf life. “Hayssen Flexible Systems’ ability to supply machines with a guaranteed increase in output and seal integrity was a key decision making factor to help us better serve our customers,” says Andrew Boakes, Managing Director at Southern Salads.

Andrew Boakes explains further “Having experienced Hayssen Flexible Systems’ outstanding after sales service support for many years it was an easy decision to continue our relationship with them. Their technical team are always readily available to give support and advice which we highly value.”

 

AuraConstant investment in people and equipment has made Five Star Fish one of the most respected suppliers to the Foodservice market.  The UK’s leading supplier of fish products, Five Star Fish, based in Grimsby, has recently purchased two turnkey solutions from Hayssen Flexible Systems.

Mike Samphire, Engineering Manager at Five Star Fish, was delighted with their new Aura VFFS machines, the installation and performance.

“The install and commissioning phase went well and according to plan, which meant there was no disruption to our overall production requirements. With Hayssen Flexible Systems’ help we were able to find the ideal full technical solution to suit our budget,” comments Mike Samphire.

As part of the project, Hayssen Flexible Systems offered Five Star Fish a pre-shipment inspection and operator familiarisation, allowing them to review the machines prior to arrival on site.

“We had regular communication with Hayssen Flexible Systems’ project management team throughout the entire order process, keeping us up to date with what was happening with our systems during the entire manufacturing process. The support from customer services, including the availability of spares from Nottingham was a definite bonus for us.”

Due to production demands, Five Star Fish needed their new machines a week earlier than originally expected. Hayssen Flexible Systems was able to meet this late request and achieved the early delivery. The Aura 450LF VFFS intermittent packaging machines complete with Yamato weighers were installed in two days over a weekend, enabling production to catch up the backlog after the first shift, thereby ensuring that there was no disruption.

Five Star Fish’s Aura 450LFs are currently on site packing pillow packs of IQF breaded fish fillets at various weights ranging from 220g – 2700g at speeds of approximately 60ppm.

Pinguin Foods Develops New Pillow Pack with Zip for IQF Peas: Packaged on Novus VFFS with ITZ

Pinguin Foods is now producing their new pillow pack with zip using HayssenSandiacre’s VFFS Novus

Pinguin Foods is a producer of IQF vegetables, with thirteen production sites, primarily situated throughout Europe with the UK site being based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk. Pinguin’s frozen vegetables can be found in many of the leading supermarkets in the UK.

The pillow pack with zip is a more consumer friendly way of storing IQF peas, as the pack can be opened and closed easier than the standard pillow pack. For bigger bags of IQF peas, this helps to ensure that there is less wastage when storing in the freezer.

HayssenSandiacre was able to offer an integrated transverse zip applicator on their Novus machine, which could very easily switch between the pillow pack and pillow pack with zip option. Despite the complexity of the pillow pack with zip, the speed of the pillow pack with zip is similar to that of the standard pillow pack.
Paul Spurrell, Engineering Manager at Pinguin Foods in the UK described HayssenSandiacre as being a great partner in the development of this new pack format.

“HayssenSandiacre have been fantastic to work with right through the order process from zip selection to the site support for our customer trials. One major benefit is that our overall line speed has not been compromised with the introduction of the zip, as we have been able to maintain our bag maker speed.”

Pinguin Foods is currently packing their bags of IQF peas of weights ranging from 750g up to 1.81kg on the Novus 350TZA (Transverse zip applicator) continuous motion packaging machine.

Jakemans’ Plant Manager Tony Bradshaw said: “The increasing popularity of our Throat and Chest sweets meant that we were having difficulty producing packs to meet consumer demand. I always had it in my mind that we would purchase from HayssenSandiacre. I have worked with HayssenSandiacre machines for 15 years and have always found them to be extremely reliable and very user-friendly.”

“The support that we have received from HayssenSandiacre in the past has been fantastic. There is always someone available to help, even outside of normal working hours. We bought our first HayssenSandiacre packaging machine in 2007 and have always been pleased with the quality of bags that HayssenSandiacre machines produce and the variety of options available, such as the euroslot application.”
