Biscuit manufacturer Fox’s has bought a Delta Systems & Automation (DSA) Eagle flow wrapper.

The new addition followed an issue with one of Fox’s old high speed flow wrappers, which meant that a new system was needed for production on its Rocky bar line. The firm operates four lines 24/7 at speeds of 600 bars per minute at its factory in Kirkham, Lancashire.

Ilapak’s DSA Eagle flow wrapper is able to wrap biscuit bars at speeds in excess of 1,000 packs per minute.

Paul Nolan, chief engineer at Fox’s Kirkham site, said: “There are very few flow wrapper suppliers who can guarantee speeds in the region of 1,000ppm. A lot of companies we spoke to said they couldn’t get near this target.”

Chris Gee, sales manager HFFS at Ilapak, added: “There is a lot of vibration when running at these kinds of speeds. The Eagle is based on a very heavy duty mechanical platform and 12.5mm thick plate frame construction. This ensures stability and smooth operation of the jaws at very high speeds.”
