Two different worlds that merge into one and so provide the customer an enormous added value. That is a short description of the cooperation which we have with Bakker Logistiek. We recently achieved another success in repacked thousands of quarter pallets.
A packaging line with (maxi) star status!
Suppose you are a manufacturer of dog snacks. Tasty, fresh, good for the teeth and produced in two attractive variants: mini and maxi chunX. How do you ensure that the star-shaped chunks end up neatly in the packaging? And that they don't (stick) together? For this we have developed a solution at Vetipak.
The pouch bags of both variants are the same: for the mini chunX and the maxi chunks we use bags with the same dimensions and the same filling weight. This presented a challenge for the maxi chunks. The star-shaped chunX are relatively wide. And if they fall straight into the pouch, it will disrupt the further packaging process.
Our first mechanic, Jop Pierik, came up with a tool that automatically tilts chunX supplied transversely and allows it to end up in the pouch correctly. A small, simple but ingenious invention! And thanks to the smart bulk feed device of the packaging line (including efficient vibrating belts), we ensure that the chunX does not have a chance to (stick) together before they go into the packaging. At the end of the line is a so-called "bag in box" line. We use this to automatically place the pouch bags in packaging boxes.
First mechanic Jop Pierik in our Petfood-plant
With this fully automated solution for the mini and maxi chunX we produce extremely cost-efficiently and to the full satisfaction of our client. A packaging line with (maxi) star status!
The place of action is our Vetipak Petfood factory, specially equipped for the packaging of dry-open petfood. The dosing systems of the production lines are suitable for controlled weighing and mixing of two bulk variants. In the Petfood factory we make different packaging variants:
- Tubs provides with a top seal
- Pouches and sachets in various sizes and, if desired, with a shelf life zip

“Sometimes the human being still wins from our robots”
Conquer the market with a manually packed end product. That is what plant manager Eric Vlassak strives for. Under his enthusiastic leadership, thirty ‘rigid boxes’ for a well-known home & body brand roll off the line every minute in our Personal Care factory. Folded and glued. But that is just the beginning.
