Sealing a range of soft fruits at leading grower and packer S&A Produce of Marden, near Hereford, Proseal tray sealers are achieving speeds of up to 115 packs per minute. S&A currently has eight Proseal machines within the group, the majority of which are GT2 Twin-X models, with a ninth on order.
Since the introduction of the tray sealers, S&A says that in addition to the high throughput, the machines have helped to improve product quality as well as significantly reducing the amount of packaging compared to the trays with clip-on lids used previously.
The Proseal solution also includes the company’s slipstream conveyor linked to its twin-lane machines, which provides a single lane infeed that ensures gentle handling.
