The Village Bakery in Wrexham has recently installed two additional Fuji Alpha VII box motion flow-wrapping systems from Paramount Packaging Systems in a move designed to increase efficiencies, reduce labour costs and ensure faster product changeover.

The purpose-built horizontal form-fill-seal lines, which feature extra-long infeeds for use with robot handling technology, are being used for the high-speed wrapping of pancakes and blinis.

The Village Bakery specialises in freshly crafted bread, rolls and a variety of morning goods.

“We are a long-standing user of Fuji flow-wrappers with five systems already installed across all four production facilities for general bakery products and crumpets,”​ says Christien Jones, director at The Village Bakery. “We’ve even visited Fuji’s plant in Japan.

“When we needed to replace older-style machines with bespoke units to cope with an increase in capacity and the introduction of robot handling technology, it made sense to choose Paramount Packaging and Fuji form-fill-seal models again.”

The two latest flow-wrappers have been customised to accept robot placed stacks of various sizes of pancakes and blinis and wrap the products with or without flat base or U cards.

The system ensures maximum throughput efficiencies with minimum labour requirements.
