Hebbie said: "We are very pleased with the wrappers' performance, which has speeded up our packing operation by 100%. Our operators have found the machines extremely easy-to-use and programme, which means less time has to be spent packing and more time can be spent serving our customers."
The WS25 weigh-wrap-label system chosen by Hebbie features a simple touchscreen that controls both the wrapping and weighing cycles and requires only one operator to complete the entire packing operation - a process that sees one pack completed every two seconds, said Avery.
Each product on the system is given a unique look-up reference number, which the operator simply keys in to recall the information needed to wrap the pack. Avery Berkel also created a dedicated pack run programme, which allows the operator to set up a product order for a particular customer, comprising a variety of different meat types and cuts.
