Fruit Breaker Project
About this Project
Our customer for this project is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of speciality nuts, dried fruit and confectionery to independent retailers, manufacturers and multiples.
The company needed a system which would break up 25kg blocks of raisins and feed them into the production line. They were unable to source a ready made solution and had to rely on using staff to manually break up the blocks. Concept Engineering was approached to see if a solution was possible.
After analysing the production system Concept’s engineers designed and built a robust solution which met the standards and specification required. It was designed to provide a range of flexibility in product sizes and improve efficiency.
Concept Engineering were able to provide a full solution including agitator and conveyor system designed specifically for the client’s dried fruit process.
The Concept agitator system allowed the client to process a 25kg block of raisins every seven seconds.
The new system has speeded up production and produced significant savings in labour costs.
