2 Sisters Food installs Packaging Automation’s tray sealer for poultry packaging

FBR Staff Writer Published 21 June 2013

2 Sisters Food, a UK-based chicken meat processing company, has selected an in-line high speed tray sealer - the eclipse SL6, from Packaging Automation to heat seal MAP packs of its poultry range.

SL6

According to Packaging Automation, the equipment is a high throughput machine capable of sealing about 100 packs per minute and has provided 2 Sisters with cost and environmental benefits combined with greater efficiency, minimum downtime and a consistent seal on all packs.

The eclipse SL6 single lane machine can be easily converted to a twin lane machine to offer speeds of about 200 packs per minute.

As a result of an inbuilt tool loading system, tool changeovers on the eclipse tray sealers can be done manually in two minutes thus saving critical downtime.

2 Sisters production manager Geoff Pugsley said, "Packaging Automation continue to be a very professional and an efficient company to deal with. They have the ability to react quickly and supply machinery on very short lead times."

2 Sisters is a diversified European food company which supplies poultry, fish, chilled, bakery and frozen products to the retail, food service and food manufacturing sectors.
