At Janzen Packaging Inc. in Canada carrots up to 12" in length are packed into 1 to 8lb Cello Bags.
David Janzen tells:
"The customers demand the carrots are vertically in-line and the bag is closed tightly.
In 2005/6 we worked diligently with NEWTEC to find a solution. Successful changes brought in the 2012XBDDG weigher by changing the shape of the weighheads, the PCS, and the addition of the USCB-20 bagger.
This machine was sold with decent success for the next 2 years. However, many customers wanted tape closing (not available on the USCB-20) and increased capacity.
Since the first 2012XBDDG weigher with the newly developed PEB40G bagger, we have been so successful that we have sold close to a dozen systems throughout the country!
Not only were production speeds increased, but the customer now has the choice of running tape or Kwik Lok closers. It should also be mentioned that the system is easily adjustable to run shorter carrots and other products such as Beets and Parsnips.
The quality level of the machines has been incredible. We have had minimal service calls and very few parts have needed replacing.
Many of these machines have been running steadily on 3 shifts for almost 10 months now and haven’t missed a beat!
To exemplify the confidence the customers have in NEWTEC/Janzen, in the Province of Quebec we are going to install the first CELOX for Carrots in April”.
