Foodmek Manufactures Accumulation Table for Rowse Honey Ltd
Tuesday, 16 October 2018
The project team at Rowse Honey, part of the Valeo Foods Group, identified a requirement for replacing a production accumulation buffer, between the capping and labelling of their 340g hexagonal honey jar.
Project Manager Jason Rose called Foodmek in February 2018 to invite the design team to the Rowse factory in Oxfordshire, to evaluate their production.
"We had seen that Foodmek had previous knowledge of handling difficult shaped jars, this made them the obvious choice to talk to when this project came up" Jason Rose, Project Manager.
Initial consultation established that Foodmek would design, manufacture and install a large accumulation table fitted with a powered roller and infeed guide.
Specifications were discussed over the next 2 months to ensure the most efficient solution.
Once specification and design were finalised, production began on 3rd April.
In order to avoid disrupting production, Rowse required installation to take place during their annual shut down in late June.
