Small footprint sealing machines
12 December 2012
Soft fruit marketing company, BerryWorld, has selected Proseal heat sealing equipment for the top sealing of fruit punnets. To date 12 Proseal GT1 and GT2 machines have been installed across the BerryWorld grower base t
"The simplicity of the machines is their greatest strength," says BerryWorld's supply chain manager Wickus Olivier. "They are robust and reliable, easy to operate and deliver the high speeds that we require - averaging 70 punnets per minute, while the GT2 is capable of achieving up to 95 or 100 when necessary.
"Equally important, both the GT1 and GT2 have the smallest footprint of all the models we tested and this is a critical benefit for many of our growers, whose pack houses were not designed for large pieces of equipment.With Proseal we are able to achieve the largest output from the smallest footprint."
