HOW THE CEREAL CHAMBERS OF THE YOGHURT CUPS ARE FILLED QUICKLY AND PRECISELY
Since the start of production, the yoghurt cartons have been filled by a chamber feeder. However, it was not possible to use this system to add the nuts due to their sticky and oily consistency. Systems like these also present the problem of weight inaccuracy. The company was therefore on the lookout for a more precise alternative that was also able to add the nut mixture.
In close collaboration, a MP 24-1000/400-H type multihead weigher was installed in Trondheim.
The products are passed to the weigher via a gravity infeed funnel. The system packages six different cereals and one nut mixture. Basically, all MULTIPOND systems can also be operated in the company’s own patented feeding mode. This mode is essential to applications like these, since it is the only way to realize the required number of dumps per minute.
TINE’s roots go back to 1881 when Norway’s first dairy association was established. Over the years, TINE has developed from a manufacturer of milk, cheese and butter to become one of Norway’s largest food organizations with a portfolio of over 500 different products.
As a result, TINE creates value in a close interaction between Norwegian nature, agriculture and the market.
“The aspect with two different sets of equipment for allergy reasons was very important for us and has been ideally realized by MULTIPOND. The nut mixture is always processed on Monday. Afterwards, all product-carrying parts are removed for cleaning and the machine is converted using the second set of parts for weighing the cereals.”
Iver Bjørgum, Dairy Manager
“The flexible and extremely powerful system runs at the highest level. MULTIPOND has been our partner for weighing technology for many decades. Many an optimization process in our final packaging process has been inspired by our fruitful and trusting cooperation.”
Stephan von Melle, Technical Manager, Brüggen KG
“Quality and transparency are part of our corporate philosophy – that goes for packaging too. We want our customers to see the actual products, the packaging is designed with that in mind.”
Jörg Ruthardt, Director of Production, Altdorfer Mühle
“We have been working with various multihead weigher suppliers for years. MULTIPOND will be at the very top of our list from now on.”
