The adverse effects of the COVID-19 continue to have a major impact on various industries around the world, especially the restaurant, hotel, and travel industries. Jana from Germany is like that. Before the outbreak of covid-19, they manage several restaurants and hotels, and their business was very good.
However, after the outbreak, their restaurants and hotels had to be closed. After several months, they decided to start a new business, selling quick-frozen dumplings. This is a very smart choice, and the food business will never lack a market. So she started looking for dumpling-making machines and quick-frozen dumpling packaging machines. She contacts NEWIDEAPACK Ltd.
Jana’s packaging requirements are 1kg and 500g of quick-frozen dumplings. In the beginning, JANA did not understand the shape of the dumplings she was going to make and the weight of each dumpling. With years of experience in packaging machines, we first made her a quick-frozen dumpling packaging solution.
While communicating with us, she is also communicating details with the Chinese supplier of dumpling making machines. Later, she asked me to contact the factory that made the dumpling machine. The dumplings they wanted to make had many shapes and different weights. The customer added a packaging requirement for a single glutinous rice ball. In fact, the best solution for a single glutinous rice ball is horizontal. Packaging machine, but the customer hopes that a machine can meet all her guarantee needs.
According to customer needs, we have adjusted the packaging plan for customers. The final quick-frozen dumpling packaging machine plan is as follows:
1. The packaging system adopts a fully automatic vertical packaging machine, model VFC250, with back-sealing bags.
This machine can pack bags with a minimum size of L100mm*W100mm and a maximum size of L400mm*W250mm. The bag size we tested for our customers was 500g quick-frozen dumplings, W185mm*L270mm. 1000g quick-frozen dumpling bag size: W250mm*L335mm, one sticky rice bag size: W80mm*L90mm. With three bag widths, three formers are equipped.
2. The weighing system adopts a 10-head reticulated combination scale specially used for quick-frozen products, and the hopper is 3L. The weighing box is IP65 waterproof and equipped with a constant temperature dehumidification device to avoid electrical damage caused by moisture. Because the customer packs 500g and 1kg frozen dumplings, as well as a single glutinous rice dumpling. The string vibration plate used for frozen dumplings will be too large, resulting in inaccurate weighing of glutinous rice balls, so we have made an additional set of string vibration plates specifically for packaging single glutinous rice balls to achieve precise packaging of single glutinous rice balls/bags .
3. The lifting system adopts stainless steel Z-type elevator, each hopper is 2L, and the output is large. The material is transported to the 10-head combination scale from a low position. A care switch is used to coordinate the operation between the hoist and the combination scale. When the material of the combination scale reaches the preset value, the hoist will automatically stop feeding, and when the material in the combination scale is lower than the preset value, the hoist will automatically feed the material.
4. Platform. The normal platform will include a ladder and the size is relatively large. When it is known that the height and length of the customer’s packaging area are insufficient. According to the customer’s site, we reduced the height and width of the platform as much as possible and removed the ladder part. The size of the whole set of machines is changed from 5.45 m to 3.5 m, and the height is changed from 3.6 m to 3.55 m. The final customer accepts this size.
5. Product output. The customer chose the finished conveyor belt and rotating sorting tray. These two devices make production more automated and orderly. Save manpower and facilitate product management.
Among many competitors, the customer finally chose our packaging solution and signed a contract with us. The customer paid the deposit quickly. We delivered this packaging machine at the end of August 2020. The customer received the machine at the end of September. Our international after-sales team provides customers with online installation and after-sales service.
Today the customer’s machine is running particularly well. We are very honored that our packaging machine has helped an entrepreneur start a new chapter in his business. The epidemic has caused some companies and factories to close, but at the same time, some customers have seized the opportunity to open new businesses and provide people with daily necessities and epidemic prevention materials. Each of us can play our part and make our own contribution to the fight against the epidemic.
