The third shrink wrap line is a smaller 600mm wide side feed sleeve sealer designed to shrink wrap trayless collations of cylindrical tins of the ever popular Twiglets.
A wealth of shrink wrapping experience
Here we drew on our experience of manufacturing shrink wrap equipment for the diary industry by incorporating our own manufactured feeding and collating system. This effectively allowed packs to travel from Jacobs' production line in a single lane format with the Rochman collating and wrapping in a 2x3 format.
A winning formula
It was this ability to easily customise each machine coupled with the quality and reliability of Rochman equipment which persuaded Jacobs to choose Rochman shrink wrap machines.
" Shrink wrapping has been a successful venture for us in terms of providing the best method of increasing production speeds, keeping costs under control and maintaining pack integrity," explained David Rome, Jacobs' engineering manager.
Glyn Johnson goes on to explain: " Over the last twelve months we have seen an unprecedented increase in the number of enquiries we receive for this type of shrink wrapping equipment as companies continue to try and limit their packaging waste liability by moving away from cartons and opting instead for the benefits of shrink wrapping."
