Tisomi’s Flow Wrapper Reduces Cost Of Fudge Packing

Due to rapidly growing demand from retailers and wholesalers for its award-winning products, a confectionery manufacturer investing in new equipment after moving premises turned to Tisomi Packaging Machinery, one of the UK’s leading specialists in horizontal flow wrapping solutions.

Family business Radfords Fine Fudge Ltd, an artisan manufacturing company of over 50 years standing specialising in traditional fudge and other confectionery products, reported improved presentation and a more than five percent reduction in costs after installing Tisomi’s Minflow400 flowrapper to replace the manual process of weighing and sealing individual bags of its delicious fudge.

At the firm’s Somerset facility, the Minflow400 is individually flow wrapping single cubes of fudge packed in printed film so that each piece of the confectionery can carry the brand message of Radfords’ own products or in private label.

The machine’s capability for boosting productivity through swift changeovers from one product shape to another was one of the other features which impressed Radfords’ Fine Fudge Managing Director, Colin Tyler.

He said: “We chose the Minflow400 because it’s easy for the operator to switch the machine from wrapping cubes of fudge to bars, using Tisomi’s change-parts, with short downtime. The investment has reduced our prime costs by more than five percent so I would certainly recommend Tisomi to other businesses.”

In addition to its easy operating features and versatility, Tisomi’s high performance Minflow400 is ideally suited for confectionery packaging where factory space might be limited because of its rugged and compact construction. It is available in rotary, long dwell and box motion versions with a variety of automatic feeding systems and is capable of wrapping confectionery products up to 90mm in height and can handle films up to 400mm width.

Tisomi can supply a full range of flow wrappers, supported by an excellent after sales service, for a variety of food products. They can improve productivity, enhance pack presentation and performance to market, protect the integrity of goods and offer prolonged shelf life.

Yorkshire-based Tisomi specialises in top-quality, Italian manufactured flow wrapping systems which can be trialled at the company’s Wetherby facility to make sure the client is buying or leasing the right equipment for the product.

No two applications are the same, Tisomi provides flexible packaging systems that can safely wrap a whole range of different shaped products in any configuration, while at the same time maximising visibility on retailers’ shelves.

Tisomi has many decades of experience and offers a prompt, personal service in ascertaining the best solution for a confectioner’s packaging requirements. Tisomi would be delighted to welcome interested parties to its Wetherby premises for an in-depth look at the equipment together with an assessment of the client’s specific requirements.
