Saimo Technology , a manufacturer of packaging equipment, has installed a twin head linear weigher complete with an s-type bucket elevator for weighing and packing fresh organic pasta at MM Foods in Victoria.
By automating the product weighing process, MM Foods have increased its productivity of Allgrain Organics pasta in excess of 30% while minimising labour requirement and substantially reducing product giveaway by an average of 15 grams per packet.
Tim Williams, regional manager for Saimo Technology, said “The installation was straightforward and all potential issues like product handling, interfacing with existing equipment and fitting within the limited space, were carefully considered during the design stage”.
Lito Nisperos, manager of MM Foods, producer of Allgrain Organics pasta, said “I am extremely happy with our decision to purchase from Saimo Technology.
"The quality of the equipment is second to none, the pricing was the most competitive I have come across, and now that I have the equipment installed, commissioned and in production, I am extremely impressed with their staff and manufacturing standards.The free unlimited call-outs and technical assistance for the initialsix months are great features as we know there are no extra costs during the start-up period and well into the production stage”.
