Arnaud Soubeyran Nougat

ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, the origins of which date back to 1837 starting with the marriage between talented confectioner Mr. Arnaud and Miss Soubeyran, is the most ancient producer of traditional nougats in Montélimar, France.  Run by the family’s third generation, the firm has nowadays broadened its range of confectionery and shares its know-how within the charming atmosphere of a museum entirely dedicated to nougat.

For 15 years, ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN has packaged its Nougats, Calissons, Marshmallow and Pralineswith three Schib Flow Wrappers and it has just recently purchased its fourth Schib, a new CO 50 that will soon be installed. Didier Honnore, Director of ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, declares “Schib machines have always supported us efficiently, fully meeting our need to pack a wide range of sweets, biscuits, marshmallow and pastry. We are really satisfied, the machines are very flexible, reliable and easy to clean. Furthermore, they are backed up by a flawless after-sales service. No doubt, all of these pluses led us to choose Schib once again when we had to purchase our fourth packaging machine. Actually, this one will be an advanced, new generation CO50, featuring an appealing design coupled with even higher performances.”

The CO50’s rotary motion twin jaws, operated by 3-axis drive technology, will allow speeds of up to 200 ppm. The machine is equipped with motorized film pre-feed, reel run out sensor, pre-printed film registration, and many other options.

Originally brown in color, made of honey, spices and walnuts, ‘Nux Gatum’ has spanned centuries from the ancient times up to present days.  Its journey from the East to Greece led it to Marseille where it set in under the name of ‘Nougat’ in the XVII century, among the 13 most typical Provencal desserts.  By going up the Rhône, a determining stop in Montélimar changed the brown color of this home-made confectionery into the white one and the walnuts into almonds. Widely exported and appreciated all around the world, this popular and nice delicacy connected to the memories of festivals and holidays still remains a Provencal sweet that cannot be forgotten once tasted.

Michelle’s Bakery
is a local favorite near Rutherford College, North Carolina. Alongside their grill, Michelle’s Bakery distributes a large variety of homemade cakes, pies, cookies and other desserts. Michelle’s Bakery recently trialed a new Rose Forgrove Merlin Blu flow wrapper. The company needed a flow wrapper that could handle the packaging of various smaller bakery items as well as whole pies and larger bakery products for retail display.

Tammy Cannon, Co-owner of Michelle’s Bakery, oversees the packaging of their bakery product lines, and was happy to accept the Merlin Blu on a trial basis. Positioned for substantial growth, the company had a need for automated packaging equipment.  Michelle’s Bakery has since purchased that same Merlin Blu, which steadily wraps cookies day after day. One of the features that appealed to Cannon was the hygienic features, with tool-less removal of guarding, which makes for fast and easy cleaning of the flow wrapper. Another benefit of the Merlin that led to a final sale is its capability to handle a wide range of products with its easy to use adjustable forming box and wide jaws. Taking advantage of these features and the user-friendly operator interface, Michelle’s Bakery can easily switch from wrapping small cookies to full size pies. The B&R Industrial Automation control system with color icon controls make it easy for Cannon’s team to set packaging parameters and make quick changeovers.

Ryan Glenn, Horizontal Sales Leader for Hayssen Flexible Systems, coordinated the project with Michelle’s Bakery. He comments, “I initially bought one of Michelle’s Bakery pound cake slices while traveling. I was impressed with their high-quality bakery products.  Their close proximity to our global headquarters in Duncan, SC, where the Merlin Blu is manufactured, made them an ideal candidate for a beta installation. The Merlin Blu is an ideal flow wrapper to help them achieve packaging that effectively displays Michelle’s Bakery tasty treats while maintaining the freshness of their products. I look forward to partnering with Michelle’s Bakery as their operations continue to grow.”

Currently, Michelle’s Bakery is using the Merlin Blu to wrap their famous chocolate oatmeal cookies in single serve packs at 50 packs per minute, as well as whole coconut pies at a rate of 25 per minute.

 

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. Rose Forgrove services a broad range of industries across the globe.
