Brillopak’s reputation as an automation innovator has been recognised by industry leaders, with the Kent-based packaging machinery designer scooping a top accolade at the recent PPMA Group Industry Awards 2018.
Judged by an independent panel of 10 industry experts, Brillopak took home the trophy for Innovative Packaging Machine for designing the C130 Semi-Automated Packstation. An automated version of the traditional Lazy Susan style product collation/packing station, the system, which helps manual staff load packs of fresh produce into retail crates, has significantly enhanced process and productivity improvements at more than 12 UK fresh produce packhouses to-date.
The judging panel noted that: “Brillopak provided a good example of innovation – meeting customer needs and then exceeding them. Impressively short payback time and overall equipment performance improvements. The strength of the approach lies in its optimisation of manual human labour rather than trying to replace it completely. This gives a best of both worlds scenario along with reduced damage to product.”
