The INOX 420VG is a fully automatic four station vacuum and gassing can seamer that is able to handle up to 40 cans per minute and features the necessary electrical and mechanical connections to facilitate the addition of two further seaming stations. This makes it an ideal machine for growing companies that need to meet increasing production demands.
Among the clients who have benefited from the INOX 420VG is a global wholesale and retail ethnic snack food manufacturer, based in Sweden. They were founded in the 1990s and became one of the first companies in the dry roasting sector to provide freshly produced nuts, grains and seeds from around the world to both wholesale and retail customers. Their success in a growing snack-food market has enabled them to expand and in addition to their main operations in Sweden, they now also have a base in the Middle East.
The range of products they produce includes roasted and salted peanuts, cashews, almonds and dried fruit and nut mixes, and the company has built its reputation on the quality of its products. They use premium quality raw materials and their low-salt roasting process is both fat and oil free, and they also focus on providing attractive and distinctive packaging as an important part of their brand.
They were looking for a canning solution that would preserve the quality and freshness of their product and the aesthetic qualities of the product packaging, while being flexible enough to handle increasing production levels to match demand.
We were happy to advise on the right machine for their needs and recommended the INOX 420VG. This seamer is used in a variety of applications, particularly in the processing of dried food. Manufactured from all food grade 316 stainless steel, it is fully compliant with European Hygienic Engineering Design Group standards, and delivers a robust seam that helps to preserve the integrity of ingredients, while its precision operation also protects the appearance of the packaging, which is often vital in a competitive, brand-conscious market.
In addition, the INOX 420VG’s capacity to add extra seaming stations, which can increase its production speed up to 90 cans per minute, made it the perfect solution for our client’s rapidly growing business. We were able to assist and advise on factory installation and operation of the seamer, which utilises the user-friendly touch-screen Siemens PLC control system, and the INOX 420VG is now helping our client to meet the demand of a burgeoning market.
