Recently Autopack supplied two filling lines into Truffle Hunter based in South Carney, Cirencester. The first solution was a jar line including a single head mechanical vacuum capper sealing a variety of condiment jars. The mechanical vacuum technology enables Truffle Hunter to vacuum cap without the use of steam, which negated the need for a steam boiler and also enables them to handle heat sensitive products. With the volumes increasing, Truffle Hunter have recently invested in a new three head mechanical vacuum capper from Autopack. The second solution was a filling line for glass bottles. The line produces premium truffle infused oil in variety of shaped bottles at a speed of 30 BPM with either a ROPP closure or push in T corks.
Autopack collaborated with the Perivale site of Petrow Foods for the supply of a unique capping solution. The challenge was to apply a twist off metal cap and a plastic screw cap on a single capping machine. Usually, the technology requires to apply these caps results in two separate machines. The machine provided by Autopack was a single head inline capper custom designed to handle both caps and producing speeds of 35 CPM. This machine maintained its flexibility to run a wide variety of containers and lids with minimal adjustment and fast change overs.
