production with PurPak

PurPak helps UK baker implement packaging machinery to support expanding product range.

A leading London baker worked with PurPak to support their packaging requirements for an expanding range of fresh morning goods and pastries for hotels and retailers across the UK.

The premium bakery needed packaging equipment for a new line and originally considered other flow wrappers that suited their immediate packaging requirements and budget. However, they risked quickly outgrowing them due to continued investment in product development.

The PurFlow Compact was the ideal solution. Its modular design allowed them to invest a machine that met their initial requirements, with the ability to add additional modules when the need arises. This meant they didn’t have to over-invest in equipment to meet potential future demands or invest in new equipment when their needs changed. It also allowed them to carry out fast changeovers, which was very important with their expanding range of products being packed on one machine.

A challenge they faced was the immediate requirement to begin flow wrapping their new range. Their customers’ demands did not allow for a lead time. PurPak ensured they could fulfil customer orders quickly by supplying a machine held in stock, so they could begin packing within just a few days.

Another challenge bakers often face with standard flow wrapper pusher systems is correct product alignment. This alignment challenge is due to natural variations in the size and shape of baked goods. PurPak introduced an innovative product stop system to overcome this, ensuring all products were correctly positioned on the infeed, minimising product waste and reducing film usage.

The PurFlow Compact has been a great success for this growing bakery. Production has increased and, with its modular design, they are well equipped for continued growth. Remote support ensures production is maximised and unnecessary downtime minimised.

“We needed a machine that was built to last and easy for our operators to use. PurPak understood our needs and walked us through the options to make sure we got a machine that’s right for us now, and in the future. We’re delighted with the result.”
