Can all 4 viewers of this website please put their hands together and give Wye Fruit a warm welcome to the Kent Fruit Service's newsfeed? Congratulations on making the big time ladies and gents.
Nothing like real footage shot in portrait to prove we have done something; see below for our flawless BFI working, well...flawlessly. The previous method of utilising their redpack was a more labour intensive manual method, which worked but was just too inefficient. Enter the BURG BFI 3.0 to save the day. It has eliminated a lot of the unnecessary manual elements and instead now churns out 70 packs a minute consistently, day in day out, with a high degree of accuracy. You can rely on the partnership between BURG and Redpack as they have worked together on countless occasions and the symmetry between the two means less wasted packaging and automatic speed adjustment when one or the other speeds up or slows down.
A new addition to the BFI line set up is a split weigh belt situated nearer to the BFI than the traditional dosing wheel method of fruit delivery. The principle of the BFI is backwards communication, so if the belts with load cells underneath detect a lack of fruit, the BFI tells the weigh belt to speed up and deliver more fruit in order to maintain a continuous flow of fruit for the batching section. The reason the weigh belt is more successful is the smaller distance between the BFI and where the fruit is delivered; this means less delay to the supply and more consistent batching.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Wye Fruit for the order and look forward to working together again in the future.
