Flexible filling machine
At its Kumla site in Sweden, Orkla Foods Sverige has replaced two existing filling machines with one filling machine from SIG Combibloc.
With the CFA 712, the company is now filling premium juice drinks and baby food in combiblocSmall and combifitSmall aseptic carton packs.
Johan Linné, plant manager at Orkla Foods Sverige Kumlafabriken, says, “The new filling machine has enabled us to significantly increase our production volume. The performance of the machine, coupled with flexibility in terms of formats, volumes and the variety of products that can be filled, was the crucial factor in our decision to switch to filling technology from SIG Combibloc.”
The CFA 712 is able to fill products in the combibloc and combifit formats with an output of up to 12,000 carton packs per hour. The machine can do this in several different volumes and with any decor required.
For all combibloc and combifit formats with the same base dimensions, switching between different fill volumes takes just a few minutes. With the CFA 712, six different volumes can be filled at Orkla Foods Sverige.
