"With this form of packing we can serve every client"
Holland: De Groot offer clip packings with new machine

After a trial week, the real work started this week with the new packing line of De Groot International. Marcel Villerius, production manager at De Groot is satisfied. "During the week of 4 July we removed the last starting problems and from Monday 11 July we are starting with real volumes"  

The new line for clip packings
"We do not have this kind of packing yet" he continues. "This is the Newtec-line specially for clip packings."

"We decided to offer our clients another form of packing and with this we can serve every client, both existing and new ones. Addition products with any label can be packed."

Piet Pannekeet of JASA, the Dutch NEWTEC dealer adds: "As a result of this new line the production possibilities of De Groot are a lot more flexible. And the capacity increased by 90 x 1kg clips per minute."

15-head weighing machine

The machine can handle various weights. "From 300 gr to 5 kgs, but the norm is
2 kgs packs" as per Marcel. "It is a 15-head weighing machine and the more heads the higher the capacity and the precision."
The products are put in boxes. Because of the unique system only one
person is required.
The production manager tells that they also have another
NEWTEC line. "We already had good experience with the present machine and so Java was the obvious choice. Also we choose this supplier because of the exact weights and the accurate service."

With the machine various kinds of fruit and vegetables can be packed, but mainly citrus. "For instance it could be used for tomatoes and Brussels sprouts, but some small aspects would have to be adjusted" Piet and Marcel say.

"Cake is part of a new machine", according to Piet Pannekeet of JASA
