More PLC Upgrades

Talking of the nations favourite, as we were in our Rovemea post, one of the UK’s best known Snack brands has entrusted us with two Sandiacre Twin TG250’s for a complete refurb/upgrade.

Sandiacre machines are one of the most popular older machines to benefit from a PLC/Electrics upgrade and Front Plate components refurb from us, ensuring many further years of service.
We also have a well deserved strong reputation for stocking spare parts and consumables for Sandiacre machines

More Take-Up of GreenPE Bags

An interesting article from Packaging News on the move away from industry-standard polythene, derived from finite fossil fuels, for ones made from a sugarcane biopolymer known as GreenPE.

As well as being renewable, sugarcane captures and stores CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows, making it carbon-negative.
Avoiding the use of fossil fuel plastic material in favour of GreenPE bags further reduces the amount of CO2 emissions and preserves fossil resources.

Just completed a major refurbishment of two Rovema machines for the nations’ favourite breakfast cereal company.

We have cleaned up and utilised the original frame and film loading mechanism but replaced the front plate components such as Jaws and Transport plus completely upgraded the PLC and Electrics.
