TRADITIONAL SNACK PACKED AT UNTRADITIONAL SPEEDS The installation of four ishida atlas integrated multihead weigher and bagmaker combinations at leading spanish snacks manufacturer facundo Blanco has delivered an increase in output per line of around 30%. ishida was the first company to fully integrate the design of bagmakers and multihead weighers, with the aim of optimising the interface between the two key machines involved in modern snack food packing. aimed at the crisps and extruded snacks segment, this technology also proved ideal for sunflowers, leading to facundo Blanco becoming the first company in spain to install the system. since then, three more have been added. “The ishida combination will pack up to 90 bags per minute,” says Technical Director, manuel arroyo luján of facundo Blanco. “This remains unsurpassed for sunflower seed packing, which is a relatively dusty process.” This dust also contains salt from the purification process. Despite this potentially corrosive mixture, the ishida machinery maintains accurate weighing, precise film control, timely stripping of product away from the seal zone, sealing and similar complex functions, all at high speed and over long periods. This dependable performance is of great importance to facundo Blanco.
