Podmores supplies a further counting system for Exitex, an Irish company with 28 years in the business of innovative features to effectively seal, protect and enhance doors, windows and conservatories against even the most severe weather conditions.
Exitex previously installed a multi headed counting system for counting and bagging various fixings over 20 years ago, and recently needed to expand production to satisfy demand.
The Counting System has a hopper at ground level loaded by an operator, the hopper contents are fed automatically into a flighted belt elevator to raise the product to a high level bowl feeder fitted with a counting head, the bowl feeder is loaded automatically by the elevator and is controlled by a level sensor positioned over the bowl feeder.
Accurate counts of the products are achieved by the bowl feeder before being discharged into an automatic vertical form fill and seal machine. The form fill and seal machine automatically makes fills and seals the plastic bags with the sealed bag being taken away and loaded into a pallet box by conveyor.
The benefits of this equipment are many and include minimum product give away, maximum use of resources through automation and efficient use of available floor area. In built flexibility of the system also means excellent equipment utilization with a quick return on the investment.
“The installation of this equipment maximizes labour resources and helps us to control costs ensuring our competitiveness is maintained, the importance of reliable, cost effective equipment is paramount – past experience with Podmores equipment and support made the decision to buy from Podmoreseasy, commented Philip Allport, Director for Exitex.
“Working with Exitex is always a pleasure, it’s great to know that customers remain delighted with the equipment they invested in many years ago, and when the need arises for further investment in equipment, then Podmores is trusted as the prime supplier”, said Mike Sherwin, Sales Manager for Podmores.
