CKF starts install of the third central palletiser for snack maker

CKF Systems has started the installation of another robotic central palletising system for a world leading snack manufacturer at one of its large state-of-the-art, modern facilities, building further on the company’s 25-year strong working relationship.

This latest install will provide fully automated palletisation, taking cased product from seven existing production lines. Elements of the systems design were carried over from the two large robotic central palletising systems already supplied and commissioned by CKF for them at another of their plants.

This new multi-million-pound system is the latest robotic system to have been delivered and commissioned by the experienced engineering team at CKF, aiding our client’s drive for the improvement and automation of the operations within their manufacturing facility.

This system is a full turnkey solution from CKF Systems incorporating CKF’s own range of pallet and case conveyors along with ABB robots, Apollo Spirals and Intralox ARB equipment. CKF are ABB value providers and are the only company in the UK to hold a full Preferred Partnership agreement with Intralox giving CKF a license to manufacture Intralox’s ARB equipment in house.

Jamie Quinton CKF managing director said CKF Systems has built an established and successful relationship with its customer spanning more than 25 years.

“We’re delighted that they have again chosen CKF Systems to help automate their operations and further drive their ambitions to increase productivity, streamline their operations and reduce manual handling through effective use of automation and robotics,” said Quinton. “The length of the relationship shows how much trust has has been established between our two companies and the confidence they have in the reliability of our solutions.”
