One of our fully automatic side feed sleeve wrapper and shrink tunnel has now been supplied into the Sheffield factory of Ronseal, who are the UK’s number one supplier of Woodcare coatings, following extensive trials at YPS.
When Ronseal required a multi-pack format they decided that in order to achieve the most cost effective and efficient packaging solution shrink wrapping was the most logical choice.
As you can imagine these packs are quite heavy, and so it was important that we upgraded the infeed belt for the shrink wrapper from a standard belt to a heavy duty ‘SNB’ modular infeed system which is comfortably able to cope with the lateral stresses of pushing their product off the belt at 90 degrees to the direction of travel.
In addition to this modification the shrink tunnel belt was also upgraded to incorporate side chains which are designed to help with preventing the shrink tunnel belt from stretching over time, compared to the more common cheaper friction driven system.
Barrie Colledge, Continuous Improvement Manager commented “We have been more than happy with YPS equipment and the backup and service which they are able to offer us. The equipment came in and was up and running within hours. It has performed admirably in terms of reliability and quality’.
For us supplying such a well known and prestigious brand as Ronseal is always satisfying. It is always great for us to hear that our customers are happy and that our specification of equipment and proven track record came through once again’.
