This ‘Off-line’ product buffering solution is a unique space saving and efficient solution for up or down stream stoppages in the production process. Resulting in higher line output and efficiency.
AmbaFlex congratulate their partner CKF for being recognised and awarded for their innovation by Weetabix Food Company! CKF Systems Ltd, the Gloucester-based robotics and automation specialist, has received recognition for its innovation from the Weetabix Food Company, producer of the UK’s number one selling cereal and one of Britain’s most iconic brands.
It follows the successful design and installation by CKF Systems of a solution for Weetabix to increase the efficiency of four complex manufacturing lines at its Burton Latimer premises. As a result the company has seen both an increase in production levels and significant reduction in product wastage.
Weetabix commissioned CKF Systems to improve efficiencies within its manufacturing processes. Incorporated into the solution is a buffering system (supplied by AmbaFlex) which allows production to continue to operate for five minutes in the event of any upstream stoppage. Whereas previously, a disruption to the manufacturing lines could impact upon the baking process and result in product wastage, the likelihood of this happening now is significantly reduced.
AmbaFlex delivered the 4 spiral conveyors designed into this ‘off-line’ product buffering solution. This is a unique space saving and efficient solution to up or down stream (micro) stoppages in the production process.
One more proof of AmbaFlex’s leading position in Spiral Conveyor solutions.
