In the Belgian city of Dendermonde, Kimco NV processes Belgian and Dutch onions and packs them from 2.5 kg to 25 kg in net bags and crates. In order to continue to provide customers with fresh onions, Kimco has invested in a total Manter weighing and packaging line. With this, the company meets the increasing demand for different packaging weights.
“We carefully monitor the entire production process of the onions,” says Kris de Kimpe, manager at Kimco NV. “We need reliable and efficient machines for that.” The assignment was therefore clear: a total weighing and packaging line for onions in net bags and crates from 2.5 kg to 25 kg. The assignment was therefore clear: a total weighing and packaging line for onions in net bags and crates from 2.5 kg to 25 kg.
Fast and reliable
“Kimco NV delivers according to the Just In Time principle: if the customer orders in the morning, it will be delivered the same day.” says De Kimpe. We deliver to supermarkets, wholesalers and retailers at home and abroad. In order to comply with this principle, it must therefore be possible to switch quickly between the different packaging shapes and weights. This has now been made possible with Manter’s weighing and packaging line.
Flexible weighing and packaging
When selecting a supplier, the main focus was on the best solution for packaging in net bags in small and large weights and loose in boxes. With the MD14 XL, Kimco can accurately weigh the onions from 500 grams to 25 kg. Combined with the AutoPack and the new AutoMesh+, the onions are carefully packed in loose net bags and net bags from the roll. Finally, Kimco can choose to pack the onions loose in crates or boxes with the Crate Filler. By using so-called “presets” you can effortlessly switch between the weigher, the three packaging machines and the different weights. The result: a diverse range of the best quality!
