CWM Automation is enjoying the sweet taste of success after securing two new orders.
A market leading co-packer, has ordered an elevator feed conveyor for use on its confectionery packing line at its Featherstone site.
The new machine will automate the delivery of product to an existing filling system’s infeed, which is above head height and will provide the customer with an improved throughput and feeding efficiency.
“We have an excellent established relationship with CWM. They offer us an excellent level of customer service and advice and they’ve always managed to produce a very effective solution to our needs,” said a company spokesperson. “The new machine will be delivered and installed shortly and will allow us to improve the factory efficiencies by redeploying staff to the value-added elements of the process.”
As well as this, CWM is working on delivering a two-head volumetric product depositor for use by a local producer of fresh salads who’s located in Scunthorpe.
The North Lincolnshire suppliers of cooked, pickled and flavoured beetroot, will use CWM’s machine to fill 50 to 200gm pots with shredded beetroot as part of a new contract. The depositor will be integrated with an existing CWM100L linear filler and will enable them to accurately, reliably and efficiently handle short lead-time runs.
“We needed to be able to handle both shredded and diced beetroot efficiently. CWM developed a solution which will enable us to do that and they also managed to integrate the new machine with the existing line, which is ideal. We’ve worked with them for several years and knew that they would be able to produce a solution that was bespoke to our needs,” said a member of their production team. “Seeing our volume increase dramatically, we needed to move quickly. We know from previous experience that CWM won’t let us down and they’ll deliver what we need, when we need it.”
The existing two-lane CWM100L linear filler is capable of filling 70 pots per minute and has been in-situ since 2015. It is just one of several filling machines offered by CWM Automation.
