FULLY AUTOMATED WEIGHING OF HIGH-QUALITY NORTH SEA PRAWNS
Established in 1976, the north German family-owned company de Beer GmbH & Co. Krabbenhandels-KG is one of the few German companies to have specialized in marketing north sea prawns.
Between 10 and 12 tons of shrimp are packed weekly. To optimize its operations, the company built a new plant for final packaging stage. Previously, the prawns were still partially packed by hand; only one weighing system from MULTIPOND was in use. Additional systems have been added recently, in order to further automate the packaging process.
A further MP 14-2400/1250-H weighing system, in combination with a thermoforming machine, was installed in the new factory building in Greetsiel. This line packs 5 to 7 tons of high-quality product in trays every week, while operating just 3 days a week. All product-carrying parts have been precisely matched to meet the demands of high-quality north sea prawns in order to ensure a perfect product flow. These parts can be removed easily and quickly for cleaning and maintenance without the need for tools. The product transfer system was designed to be flexible.

“The system runs without problems. Thanks to the ruggedness and high reliability of the systems, we need as good as no support from service. If, per chance, a problem occurs, it is addressed immediately.”
Dirk de Beer, Managing Director
“The short pathways and efficient processes at MULTIPOND were a great help in getting the project implemented. Drawing on its long-standing experience in weighing the most difficult products, the company was able to offer advice and support. All MULTIPOND systems have run smoothly since installation and are completely reliable.”
Valdas Keršys, Maintenance Manager at KG Group
