Shrink wrapping Key to Increased Efficiencies at Clifton Dairies
As part of its major expansion and efficiency drive, Preston-based Clifton Dairies turned to Yorkshire Packaging Services (YPS) for help.
Increased Shrink wrapping speed
By installing a new shrink wrapping machine, Clifton Dairies significantly increased its packing speed, leading to a more effective and efficient operation.
It was vital that the shrink wrapping machine installed, not only met the stringent hygiene levels required by the food manufacturing industry, but could also cope with the challenging production demands.
To meet both requirements, a YPS SS120 shrink wrapping machine was installed at Clifton Dairies.
This heavy duty, dairy stainless steel side feed shrink wrapper can wrap a variety of pack sizes and collations; the most popular being two litres in a 3x2 collation at a rate of up to 14 packs per minute. Requiring only a single lane infeed, the pack is collated by using two pushes to every jaw cycle.
Designed and manufactured by YPS, the SS120 shrink wrapping machine has undergone a series of innovative improvements regarding change parts for different pack sizes and collations. This means that, with this shrink wrapping machine, changeover is even quicker and easier than ever before.
'YPS was a logical choice for supplying our shrink wrapping machine. They were the most attentive to detail, the easiest to deal with and, crucially for me, manufactured the shrink wrapping equipment in the UK, with the back up and support this implies. The shrink wrapping equipment was delivered and in full production within 48 hours,’ said Richard Leeming, director Clifton Dairies.
As Dave Wood, YPS director, explained:
“As we design and manufacture the shrink wrapping equipment ourselves, we can be sure that the specification meets our client’s specific requirements.”
Although the SS120 shrink wrapping machine is sufficient for most production requirements, YPS has developed an even more efficient shrink wrapping machine.
For those organisations requiring even faster production speeds, the YPS SS200, is a sophisticated shrink wrapping system capable of wrapping up to 20 packs per minute.
