An upgrade to the existing semi automated packing station has just been completed prior to the start of the 2017 Bulb season.
This was to increase efficiencies in packing the products going through the premises. The line consists of a brusher, inspection table, sack filler to handle 25kg or 50kg sacks, automatic labelling and stitching device, then a palletiser to stack the pallet. The filling can be operated by only one person with no manual handling involved
Approximately 1500 tonnes of bulbs will be packed this way over the next 8 to 10 weeks destined for USA and Europe
