Painting Dewsbury Red! A tie up with fellow Dewsbury based Mount Packaging Systems Limited, who are turn key suppliers of complete filling lines into the world wide paint industry, has seen a requirement for five fully automatic side feed sleeve wrappers to compliment their filling lines.
The order was part of a £1.5m project to supply five complete filling lines to a major paint manufacturer in Norway.
Each line supplied was specific to each filling line, the two were to compliment each other completely. Specialist turners were fitted onto our equipment as a way of ensuring that orientation of each tin was consistent. In addition pneumatic safety motors were fitted as standard across all five lines meaning that the shrink tunnel was always evacuated in the event of a power cut.
As per the end user requirements centrally mounted pushers were utilised to cope with the heavy weight of some of the tins and the infeed belts were upgraded to a very heavy duty design.
Jon Lynch, European Sales Manager commented ‘It was important Mount Packaging could work with a company who were flexible to provide the solution we and our customer needed. Certainly I wouldn’t work with anyone else in the future’.
It was a demanding application in terms of getting the correct specifications but attention to detail was critical and so I am glad all five lines are in and up and running
