Packaging automation and use of dry ice pays off...
One of the largest European meat producers used to pack fresh meat in packs of 500g and 100g manually, but this was an expensive and time consuming process.
VARO presented a solution, where two new automatic case packers, including a dry ice dispensing unit and equipment for robotic palletization was installed.
Unbroken cold chain with VARO packaging system
First, the dry ice is filled in the empty cardboard box to secure an unbroken cold chain all the way to the customer. After filling and closing of the carton using a hot-melt process, they are moved to the automatic palletizing station. The capacity is set at 20 cartons / minute to be placed in a JIG carton.
Reduced 50% of expenses on manual labor
Financiallly, this packaging system has paid off for the meat producer, as four employees have been replaced by now only two workers overseeing the whole process. This system has been in operation for several years with documented success!
