UK-based Ishida Europe has announced it will be demonstrating a complete single-source tray packing line at the Scanpack exhibition taking place 21 - 24 October 2003 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Comprising tray denesting, multihead weighing, tray filling and sealing, weigh-price-labelling and pick-and-place casepacking, Ishida's fully-integrated tray packing system aims to enable significant improvements in weighing and packing speed and efficiency.

Ishida's tray packing lines have been designed for both free-flowing and sticky fresh foods such as vegetables, fruit, salads, meat, poultry, fish, seafood and ready meals. Additional features, such as a webcam and mobile gantry, have been incorporated to maximise ease of operation and control, said Ishida in a statement.

"Complete integration of all the elements of a tray packing line should improve throughput and productivity, reduce labour costs, cut waste and downtime, and unharness unique efficiencies,"​ continued Ishida, adding that "payback periods are shown to be surprisingly low in this type of installation"​.

Claimed to be suitable for a large number of food and non-food applications, the new EM series utilises state-of-the-art weighing technology, designed to provide a high level of efficiency and a good return on investment. A variety of specifications - such as embossed surfaces, various feeder and discharge chute angles and different types of radial feeders and hoppers - are available, in an effort to meet the precise needs of individual manufacturers and packers.

According to Ishida​, the model on show will be a 14 head waterproof version, which is built to IP 66 specification for easy high pressure cleaning.

Also on show will be a model from the company's new EM series of mid-range multihead weighers - claimed to be ideal for both new multihead weigher users and standard applications.
