Germany-based processing and packaging technology supplier Syntegon has provided its Elematic 3001 WA Compact case packer technology to Finnish retailer Orkla Confectionery & Snacks.

Orkla has invested in Syntegon’s case packer solution to meet its liquorice bags packaging requirements at its Vaajakoski site in Jyväskylä, Finland.

At this site, Orkla produces chocolate and liquorice products that are then exported to Scandinavia, the UK, Canada, the US as well as to Central Europe.

In order to export to these nations, Orkla has to fulfil different packaging requirements.

According to Syntegon, changing transport conditions in the US and Canada required Orkla to shift from packing two products side by side to only one package in a row while somehow boosting its overall production capacity simultaneously.

Orkla therefore needed a new case packer solution to address these international export challenges.

The company said its main requirements for the new packer were that it should occupy less space, have increased speed, have the ability to handle ten different case formats, and have a small footprint.

All of these requirements were met by Elematic 3001 WA Compact, which is a flexible and space-saving case packer that can pack nearly ten formats with an infeed performance speed of 150 bags per minute.

It is equipped with an Elematic Click System that supports a fast, tool-free, as well as completely reproducible format changeover.

Orkla technical manager Arto Liimatainen said: “The machine delivers what its name suggests – a compact, easy-to-clean and accessible case packer.”
