When a luxury cookie and cake supplier decided to bring its production and distribution facility under its own direct control it approached us for a cost effective and versatile flowrapper. In a matter of a few weeks we supplied a fully rebuilt, upgraded and adapted 'better than new' Ilapak Carrera 2000 machine complete with expert installation, training and a two year warranty. As well as our usual class leading multi-motor drive and control system we fitted our fully adjustable fold-box and a barrette system for transferring small products over a standard rotary jaw. This meant it could pack products as small as 50mm square up to 400 by 200mm trays with fast change-over and one fold-box.
Add in a used but late generation Markem-Image thermal transfer coder for automatic 'Best Before' printing and the cost saving compared with even a cheap 'entry level' new machine was significant. A Carrera 2000 model is Ilapak's higher-end model designed for continuous heavy duty operation and the cost of an equivalent new one can be two or three times as much.
We set the machine up to run their full product range prior to delivery using conventional OPP, foil laminate and compostable NatureFlexTM wrapping meterial. One of our highly experienced engineers arrived on site ahead of the machine so we could get them fully up and running in the fastest possible time. By planning ahead and working closely with our customers we are able to provide an excellent and efficient service.
