Traysealers beef up meatball packaging

Traysealers to double beef products throughput

Related tags Meat Dovecote park

Three Proseal GT2 traysealers are helping to double packaging throughput for a range of beef burgers and meatballs at beef specialist Dovecote Park.

The machines are installed at Dovecote's Stapleton factory in West Yorkshire, which focuses on the complete processing cycle from slaughter, through maturation and into retail packs.

As well as increased speed, Dovecote Park cites the kit's ease of use, quick tool changeovers, good reliability and seal quality.

The GT2 features high-speed oxygen gas flushing for red meat, with reduced cycle time to maximise throughput. High speeds are achieved through features such as servo-controlled pack transfer, which creates a smooth movement for trays, and pack guides that centre themselves to ensure trays are accurately positioned for sealing. Automatic film snap and film end detection help maintain consistent operation.

A user-friendly menu-driven control panel provides ease of set up and operation, which can be remotely accessed and controlled. The screen also provides detailed production data, production monitoring and full diagnostics.

The beef burgers and meatballs are packed into novel tray designs to retail customers' specifications. The meatball line has a bespoke automated packing system.
