Ishida Helps Sow the Seeds for Increased Production

Ishida Europe Ltd. (UK) – An Ishida multihead weigher at premium Irish vegetable grower Leo Dunne Ltd has played a central role in helping the company expand its operation into the supply of processed carrots.

Leo Dunne has been delivering fresh Irish products to the retail sector for generations. Recently the company recognised that oversized or irregular carrots that were not suitable for the prepared carrot market were nevertheless still high quality products which could be successfully marketed through further processing. It therefore required an effective processing and packing line in order to maximise the potential of this new market.

The Ishida 10-head waterproof mid range model with 3 litre hoppers is delivering excellent accuracy and reliability, achieving around 55 packs per minute on 500g bags of carrots with an overall accuracy rate of 98%.

Equally important, the machine’s ease of operation, including fast start-up using the simple-to-use remote control unit (RCU), gives it the flexibility to cope with the varying production demands of the Leo Dunne operation.

Leo Dunne specified the Ishida weigher for the new line, based on the company’s established reputation in the market place.

“We knew Ishida had a great name in the industry and had received positive reports from other users,” explains Leo Dunne manager, Emmet Dunne, “and we have not been disappointed with our choice.

“The machine’s ease of operation means our staff all like it. It is also far more intuitive than other weighers, so that if there are any minor issues during production, the machine will identify these and inform operators how to fix them. This is vital to maintaining production.”

And while the machine’s reliability is an obvious benefit, so too, says Mr Dunne, are the high levels of after-sales service provided by Ishida and its agent SF Engineering.

“Knowing we have someone on the spot who can deal with any issues we have is absolutely critical to ensuring we can meet the requirements and deadlines of our retail customers,” he confirms.

The Ishida 10-head multihead is part of a complete line devised and installed by SF Engineering which also includes a swingloader, bespoke sorting table, elevating conveyor and support platform, and a Ceia metal detector.

Leo Dunne anticipates that the new facility will pay for itself within three years. And while the system was designed to handle carrots, it can also be used for other products, giving the company enormous flexibility and the ability to react to market trends and developments.

In addition, by using all its surplus stock, Leo Dunne has achieved major efficiency gains and a significant reduction in its carbon footprint.

At First Sight: Bizerba SliceCheck for Visual Inspections of Sliced Products

Bizerba (Germany) - Bizerba‘s visual inspection system SliceCheck enables visual 100-percent inspections of sliced products before packaging. The real-time check detects mechanical damages and visual flaws including torn edges, holes or false orientation and rejects faulty products in time, thus saving material and cost.

Following the slicing process, SliceCheck’s visual inspection technology checks the top slice of each product stack for criteria like shape, size, position and composition. Faults including folds, cracks and imperfections result in the product’s ejection from the process before entering the packaging stage. Depending on the product, the inspection system checks and measures the product’s appearance with respect to fat content, bloodstains and marbling. For instance, the system checks cooked ham for the position and thickness of the crust. Raw ham, in turn, is checked for slices penetrated by fat or parts of the knuckle. In addition, SliceCheck detects spots that are penetrated by dark veins and do not meet the quality requirements. Thus, product quality can be ensured before the packaging process.

Continuous monitoring and adjusting of parameters while slicing and shaping ham helps to improve equipment productivity. By providing detailed information including the appearance, fat content and completeness of each product stack, the system creates a database that can be used to analyze and optimize the upstream slicing process. End-to-end traceability is also enabled by archiving images and production data.

SliceCheck also detects the height and orientation of the entire product stack, thus enabling precise placement in the package. This avoids flaws like inclusions of material in the sealed seam or leaky spots. Contactless quality checks also improve the hygiene conditions of the entire operation by reducing the risk of contamination due to human intervention.

Checking up to 100 stacks per minute per lane, the system can be straightforwardly connected to existing monitoring software or the company’s internal ERP system. Synchronous checking on two parallel lanes or asynchronous checking on multiple lanes is equally possible.

Apart from sliced products, SliceCheck can also be used for pastry including cookies or donuts.

Frozen Yogurt Business Streamlines Checkout Process with Brecknell 6720U

Brecknell (USA) - Located in Fairmont, MN, Graffiti Corner is a frozen treat and full service coffee lounge, complete with coffee drive-thru for that cup on the run. With 18 different frozen yogurt flavors, plus an extensive selection of 65 toppings, the venue selected the Brecknell 6720U as a simple yet effective way to charge by weight without slowing down the check-out process.

John Kasper, who owns and operates the business with his wife Patti, explains, "One of the products we sell is froyo (frozen yogurt). People come in and 'build their own' treat, starting with the frozen yogurt and then adding toppings. Once they have filled their cups, they bring the cup to the counter, weigh, pay and enjoy their delicious treat!"

Needless to say, for a business that relies on selling servings by the ounce, accurate weighing is extremely important. The Brecknell 6720U is a point-of-sale interface scale for linking to electronic cash registers or POS systems, making it an ideal choice for fast-paced retail environments.

In the case of Graffiti Corner, this certified food-safe scale interfaces with Revel iPad POS software, speeding up transactions and avoiding any costly mistakes.

For John and Patti, both Fairmont born and raised, Graffiti Corner is more than their livelihood. The nod to local history is clear in the business name, which refers to the old lumberyard shed that served as a graffiti canvas for more than 50 years. Although the shed was knocked down to make way for the coffeehouse, John and Patti have made a feature of sections of weathered wood taken from the site. One 40 year-old panel bears the initials JK and PJ - John's initials and those of his then girlfriend and now wife, Patti Johnson.

John explains, "Community is extremely important to us and we hope that comes across as soon as people step through the door.

However, as a business we also need to be sure that we are running as efficiently as possible. We chose this brand and model because it was part of an integrated POS system -something hard to find when it comes to the frozen yogurt side of our business. The Revel system allows the scale to sync with our POS software and calculate the price without us having to manually input the weight."

"The scale and linked POS has been extremely reliable and accurate. It streamlines our check-out process, which saves us valuable time and improves the customer experience. We are very pleased with it."
