New Turnkey Automated Crate and Product Automation and Crate Washing Solution.
Spring 2014 sees Newsmith design, manufacture and install a major automated crate handling solution for a major European bakery group.
Designed to handle 2000 crates per hour the system includes an automatic crate unstacking and trash removal system feeding a two lane Newsmith crate washing and drying machine.
On completion of drying the washed and cleaned baskets are automatically conveyed to 6 new smith Basket Loaders which automatically form patterns from the packaged bread Loaves and gently place them into the baskets at a rate of 50 loaves per minute per machine.
On completion of loading filled baskets are then stacked and automatically transferred to the bakery loading area for transfer into the bakeries distribution fleet.
This installation is the latest in a series of highly automated bakery solutions that have been installed in the UK, Europe ,Australasia and North America
