Flexible denesting automation is the key for giving high volume production lines a flying start. Tray-sealing specialist MPE UK Ltd is launching a new range of denesters that are compatible with nearly all types of packaging material and machinery.
Denesters are the ideal high-speed destacking solution for reducing intensive manual intervention and increasing throughput whether the base material is card, plastic or foil. MPE is setting a new benchmark with a compact model that is capable of integrating into any production line, denesting different sizes and shaped trays with a simple five-minute magazine changeover.
MPE’s flexible, high throughput technology is easy to operate and capable of running large format trays, including cardboard packs, while taking up minimal factory floor space. A denester releases employees from the mundane task of loading trays by hand on to a conveyor. Less human error also means less waste and more speed in response to food sectors crying out for sustainable packaging systems.
The robust MPE denesters are built with top spec, food grade materials. They can load around 200 trays a minute before filling. The self-regulating system can be used with any flat blue belt or indexing conveyor with full control over speed. MPE can even create a bespoke mount for any new machines requiring this speedy solution.
Aside from the environmental and efficiency credentials, denesters like those supplied by MPE, also offer customers better after-sales support as all the electronics can be monitored, updated and serviced remotely, further reducing a company’s carbon footprint.
Developed and manufactured in the UK, MPE’s de-nesters can be bespoke to a customer’s requirements. The need for speed and accuracy at the beginning of a process cannot be overstated. Manually placing products can be slow, inconsistent and prone to error, whereas denesters can be used for a variety of applications to increase performance.
MPE’s Technical Director, John Hodgkiss, explains: “Our innovative new denesters provide food processors of all sizes exactly what they need to stay ahead of the packaging innovation curve. In an ever-changing marketplace it is crucial to keep pace with the latest manufacturing processes, including denesters at the start of the production line. Our equipment can help customers achieve all their objectives including increased productivity and packaging accuracy – thus helping to improve the bottom line and boosting profit margins for any companies involved in the food packaging industry.”
