Materials, Closures and Automated Solutions
When discussing sustainability, it is important to acknowledge that packaging plays a critical role in purchase decisions, as packaging is often perceived as a direct indicator of value. Product and brand perceptions are built upon an array of cues including price, packaging material, color, environmental-friendliness, etc., and each of these cues provide a basis for consumers in establishing their impression of that product or brand.1
A Conversation with Jim Savigny, General Manager at Fox Solutions
The 2020 Potato Expo will be hosted in Las Vegas January 13-14 and the Fox Packaging and Fox Solution's teams are gearing up to showcase our line of premier flexible packaging and packing automation solutions.
We sat down with Fox Solutions' Jim Savigny, who has been with us for 5 years and is a 30-year veteran of the equipment solutions industry, to learn more about Newtec's Celox-P-UHD, an optical sorting machine manufactured specifically for potato automation.
Not all citrus is created equally - especially when it comes to the equipment that most gently and efficiently handles it day in and day out on your packing lines. Today we're talking about weigher and bagger pairings optimally designed for small citrus fruit as well as pairings best suited for larger citrus fruit.
The Haith Group is a UK manufacturer of potato and vegetable handling equipment for receiving, dirt elimination, sizing, washing, polishing, cooling, inspecting and packing.
Unlike its counterparts, the Newtec Celox-P-UHD Optical Sorter's unique design provides simultaneous sorting by quality, size and shape. The machine's three camera system photographs each and every potato up to 45 times to catch a wide range of surface defects such as external damage, black spots, dry cuts, gray damage, greening and rotting.
