We supplied them with two identical 2600mm wide sleeve sealers and shrink tunnels for shrink wrapping a wide variety of their UPVC window and door products.
In order to meet their requirements the standard specification was upgraded in a number of areas as we needed to accommodate shrink wrapping packs up to a maximum weight of 80 kilos whilst also maintaining optimum finished pack presentation.
Due to the width of the equipment extra wide shrink film rolls are needed to wrap these products and so these can be very heavy and difficult for operators to change over and so we added a bespoke hoist system which ensured that the roll can be easily lifted and changed over.
So pleased were Ellbee/Euramax with the new specification that following the installation we have now adopted this as our new standard UK specification.
Simon Wood, project engineer explained ‘We chose Yorkshire Packaging Systems because of their professionalism and commitment to after sales backup and service’.
“It also helped that we were able to take off four weeks from the initial lead time. This was critical in keeping to their deadlines with regards to the new factory. We aim to act as fast as possible to provide our customers with the best level of support in the industry”
