UK: Automation offers Morrisons speedy potato packing

Brillopak, the UK-based manufacturer of flexible robotic packing and palletising systems, supplied two of its Brillopak PakStations to help increase packaging speeds and also make the job more manageable and ergonomic for Morrisons’ employees.

Once Morrisons realised that its turntable system was not equipped to manage the 66 million kilos of potato packs that are processed by the depot each year, the company began to look at supporting its potato packing with increased automation.
