Top Safety Accreditation for Podmores again

Posted in 2012

SafeContractor Roundel

Podmores (Engineers) Ltd has been awarded accreditation from safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety for the 5th year running.

safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Podmores is principally involved in the manufacturing of materials handling systems to all sectors, specialising in vibratory machinery and bespoke solutions. Podmores’ most recent clients have included major players such as Weetabix, Ishida and Wrigley based at various locations, inside and outside the UK.

Podmores Sprinkling System

Posted in 2012

41878KPodmores have manufactured a system capable of spreading a variety of products onto cakes and cereal bars. The system is a standard Podmores spreader system featuring a small bulk hopper feeder, distributing feeder and finally the spreader feeder. The entire unit is on wheels and is manufactured to slide over the existing production belt conveyor. A simple laning device was fitted at the outlet to enable optimum topping and minimal wastage as product is guided into the right path.

The system was comissioned by one of the UK's leading cereal and confectionary  manufacturers to allow them to develop new products using largely existing machinery. This sort of job is becoming increasingly popular, with Podmores able to build a bespoke piece of equipment specifically for customers.

Podmores make plastic bung insertion system

Posted in 2012

Podmores plastic bung insertion systemPodmores have developed and manufactured a bespoke system capable of inserting plastic bungs into various sizes of cardboard cores. The system comprises two main elements; the first is a pair of bowl feeders providing a constant supply of product to the second part of the system which handles the empty cardboard cores and holds them ready for the plastic bungs to be inserted. While the application seems relatively simple it has overcome a major problem for our customer and provides throughput of up to 80 core/bung assemblies per minute.

The system can handle card tubes between 250mm and 600mm coming off the customer's existing machinery. Once in the Podmores system each core is checked for length and rejected or accepted for the current batch and then orientated into pairs ready to have the plastic bungs inserted using a pneumatic system. Once successfully inserted the completed assembly is then output. If the bung failed to be inserted or the tube was the wrong length then a chute would open taking the tubes into a bin where they will not move on to the next process.

Podmores make Pritt stick orientation system

Posted in 2012

Pritt Sticks in a Podmores orientating bowl feederPodmores have developed and manufactured a bespoke orientation system to handle two different sizes of glue stick containers. Our standard HDFB 2000 vibratory bowl feeder was specially tooled to make all of the plastic sticks come out facing the same direction. This enables our customer to easily handle the empty sticks in their manufacturing process and to filll them from another automated system.

The vibratory bowl feeder can handle the smaller size sticks at 60 per minute and the larger sticks at 50 per minute. When the customer wishes to change between the sizes they simply have to adjust two points in the machine which can be completed very quickly.
