An Essex packing line firm showed off the full range of its abilities this week as it opened its doors to manufacturers in the farming, food, aggregate and other sectors.
Pacepacker, a manufacturer of food and agricultural packing machinery, based on a farm at Great Bardfield, near Braintree, hosted tours of a 25m sq automated packing line, complete with robotics, destined for a chemical company. It demonstrated how the firm was able to create systems where products are bagged and palletised speedily and efficiently. Manufacturers at the event included Co-op Farms, Days Aggregates, Jewers Grain, Roger Skinner and Veetee Foods.
“This open day gives people a feelf or the size of the system we can operate and the complexity of it,” said managing director Dennis Allison.
