For the second time in less than 12 months Endoline Machinery’s 744 Fully Automatic Random Case Sealer has scooped a top automation award.
On Friday Alan Yates, MD of the quality end of line equipment designer and manufacturer picked up the coveted robotics and automation gong – in recognition of the 744 and Endoline’s engineering excellence – at the Food Processing awards.
Endoline originally designed and manufactured the 744 system in 2012 after being approached by a leading global snacks manufacturer who was looking to seal random sized cases of crisps at high speed. Endoline’s original random case sealer – the 734 – had been successfully boosting manufacturer’s production lines for many years. However the demand was for a system which could deliver output at rate of almost 50% faster than current random case sealing equipment.
Endoline’s team of engineers worked with new technology and implemented servo drives to design a bold system overhaul in the 744 Fully Automatic Random Case Sealer which, when tested, met the desired 30 random sized cases per minute.
Since the original build and installation the Endoline 744 has made a huge impact on the market with over 20 installations throughout the globe. Over this period the system has evolved in line with changing needs for more variable size and weight ranges. All of which documents the rising demand for flexible end of line packaging machinery – and Endoline’s ability to meet this need.
Alan Yates comments: “We are delighted with this win as it is testament to the quality of our machines and reflects the expertise of our design team and engineers. We are already expanding our portfolio of high speed, flexible systems as increased speeds and product rates are pushing the need for automisation within manufacturing units globally.”
