PA increase efficiencies at Branston

A recent installation of PA’s Revolution tray sealer at Lincoln based Branston has dramatically improved the efficiencies and reduced costs of their potato tray sealing line. Branston supply a wide range of fresh potatoes, seed potatoes, processing potatoes, ready prepared potatoes to customers, from retailers and wholesalers to some of the UK's favourite snack brands.



The Revolution is the fastest most energy efficient single lane tray sealing machine on the market and features PA’s PowerdriveTM fully electric technology. Interpolated multi axis robotic motion ensures a continuous flow of trays through the machine from infeed to outfeed eliminating any need for pauses or buffering allowing the throughput of up to 150 packs per minute. The seal force has been increased by 300% compared to pneumatic systems however PA’s novel technology allows the tool lift mechanism to be deactivated during the seal process therefore significantly reducing the energy usage.

Richard Heppleston General Manager from Branston said “PA have helped us to change our business, we have a great partnership. Their approach to the project made it possible; we have already increased our efficiencies and lowered our cost per unit with very little downtime on the machine. The operating system is easy to use, we have a number of none English speaking workers and they have no problem using the equipment, I would recommend PA to other companies.
