The installation of three high-performance Ishida integrated Total Packaging Systems (iTPS) at leading German snack manufacturer WURZENER Nahrungsmittel GmbH has improved weighing speeds by around 75% and almost eliminated product giveaway, while delivering higher quality snacks bags with fewer rejects and less product and film waste. This has led to a fast payback on investment.
The Ishida iTPS’s are part of three new packing lines for WURZENER’s range of extruded corn snacks, including the company’s top-selling peanut-flavoured Erdnussflips, onion rings and cheese puffs. The iTPS is a fully integrated snack food packing system which combines a multihead weigher from the high-performance CCW-RV series with the Ishida Inspira, the world’s most efficient bagmaker specifically developed for snack foods. Both machines are seamlessly integrated and operated via a single control panel.
