Installation of auto-collator – (Gold Bar), McVities, Carlisle

As part of a Continuous Improvement initiative we replaced the existing manual biscuit collators with an automatic system that takes the product from the primary wrapper, collates into blocks of 9 and presents these to the secondary wrapping machine. This has lead to a reduction in waste and the need to re-feed loose product. PK Engineering were asked to provide a new control panel for the auto-collator and also to carry out the on site installation.
