This Fruit Packing Carton Delivery system supplies all empty cartons required to maintain packing line efficiency. Apple packing, peach packing or any fruit or produce packing operation that uses empty cartons or packing trays need a constant flow of boxes for the packers. New food safety regulations are putting pressure on produce packers to keep packing material off of the floor area. This video shows how PACLINE addressed issue this by installing an overhead empty carton handling conveyor in several fruit packing facilities in Niagara, Ontario, Canada.
The challenge was – how to keep a constant supply of empty boxes for packers while keeping product and material off the floor?
The PAC-LINE™ is an overhead conveyor system that is so versatile that it can be easily installed over and around virtually any existing equipment. The PAC-LINE™ conveyor features a universal chain inside an enclosed tubular track, the track sections are pre-fabricated and modular in design. One of the key benefits for these peach packing facilities was the ability of the PAC-LINE™ conveyor track to handle a steep elevation changes and tight curves. The conveyor system was precisely designed to take empty cartons from the carton forming area and to go up over and around the existing sorting equipment and then back down to a level convenient to the peach packing operators on the floor.
This overhead conveyor system allowed the floor to be clear and uncluttered of cartons and packing material, adhering to the highest standards of food and operator safety. Also, custom carriers were designed in each facility so that multiple cartons in various specific sizes could be conveniently accessible at all times. Having the cartons delivered directly to the packers on the line saved considerable time in the packing process.
Another benefit of this conveyor system for fruit packing operations, is the ease of which the system can be modified. The modular design of the track means that changes or extensions to the conveyor system can be done quickly and simply
