  • Schib’s CO50TG Flow Wrapper Provides Friulana Panini Increased Speeds

    by Lacy Cooper | Jun 21, 2017

    Friulana Panini VideoWe have recently installed one of our latest Schib CO 50 TG at FRIULANA PANINI in Italy, a leader company in producing and packaging sandwiches, tramezzino sandwiches and pizza for the food service industry, including the hotel and catering industry and the vending machines market.

    Located in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, the company has been in the market for more than 40 years and prides itself on its fresh, genuine products that are widespread distributed in Northern Italy daily, beginning right at dawn.Friulana Panini Team

    In compliance with customer’s specifications, this packaging machine featuring faster box motion HFFS technology, is running sandwiches and tramezzino sandwiches at up to 55 per minute, but we successfully tested it up to 75 packs/min as well (30% faster than our previous CO 50 TG model).

    The machine is fully servo driven, featuring multi-axis drive technology with as many as 5 independent brushless motors so to control the in-feed conveyor, the belt before the sealing bars, the sealing wheels, the box motion as well as the closing of the sealing bars.

    Ideal for modified atmosphere packaging, the box motion system can deliver high integrity seals if used in conjunction with MAP barrier films. This makes the machine suitable for products that require hermetic sealing as in gas flush applications.

    In any case, the Schib CO 50 TG flow wrapper is capable of handling packaging materials that include polypropylene, laminated foil, and barrier films.

    Friulana Panini Close UpThe machine is equipped with many options, including reel run out detection, motorized film pre-feed, pre-printed film registration and gas flush kit (gas lance and valve). Remote diagnostics and troubleshooting are possible with State-of-the-Art remote service device.

    Says Mr. Gian Andrea Molaro, Chairman of Friulana Panini, “We are delighted with our Schib CO 50 TG flow wrapper, it is reliable, efficient, easy-to-operate and to clean. Moreover, we have particularly appreciated the ease of its 7” touch screen mounted on a swivel arm. The machine perfectly preserves the freshness of our premium quality sandwiches. We aim to increase our production capacity in the future and we know that the machine will be able to support our growth with speeds up to 75 packs per minute”.

Viviana Basile, Hayssen’s Customer Service Representative, comments, “Our customers have driven this upgrade introduction. They have been happy with the MH7 and S12 models in the case of performance, but need to ensure that the electrical components do not expire. Now, they can quickly modernize older baggers with easier to set parameters, a wider recipe-memory and internet connection for tele-assistance.”

  • Santiveri's Healthy Foods Rely on Hayssen VFFS

    by Lacy Cooper | Mar 30, 2017

    Integrated packaging lines weigh and bag various types of cereals

    Healthy Food and Natural Alternative In 1885, a young man named Jaime Santiveri in Barcelona, Spain was diagnosed with a severe lung disease. He tried every type of medicine available in the market at the time. The only option was to try a natural, alternative medicine and luckily for him, it was the right solution. With a healthy lifestyle and alternative medicine, Jaime Santiveri was able to successfully recover from the disease. So in 1914 he opened his first factory in Spain, where he produced his own products and the company has never stopped since.

     Today, Santiveri S.L. packs various types of genuine and healthy products. Cereals and bakery products are weighed and bagged on  Hayssen Logic 35 vertical form fill seal machines. The packaging line is equipped with special accessories for creating stand-up  quad bags, ranging in size from 100g to 1Kg. In order to make perfect bags, the VFFS includes a nip drive metering roll, heated plate system and updated quad sealing system. The end result is a perfectly sealed and formed quad bag at production rates of more than 40 bags per minute. The nip roller system simplifies and secures the film movement avoiding film slip while increasing speed, as well as extending the life of silicone pull belts.

    The customer visited Hayssen’s Italian factory in Padova and tested the Logic machine before it shipped to Spain. Javier Santiveri, grandson of the first Santiveri, says of this most recent order, “I buy Hayssen because I have several Simionato VFFS systems and through the years the service has evolved to meet our needs and we are satisfied.”

  • Artisanal Nougat Packaged by Arnaud Soubeyran with Four Schib Flow Wrappers

    by Lacy Cooper | Oct 12, 2016


    ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, the origins of which date back to 1837 starting with the marriage between talented confectioner Mr. Arnaud and Miss Soubeyran, is the most ancient producer of traditional nougats in Montélimar, France.  Run by the family’s third generation, the firm has nowadays broadened its range of confectionery and shares its know-how within the charming atmosphere of a museum entirely dedicated to nougat.

    For 15 years, ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN has packaged its Nougats, Calissons, Marshmallow and Pralines with three Schib Flow Wrappers and it has just recently purchased its fourth Schib, a new CO 50 that will soon be installed. Didier Honnore, Director of ARNAUD SOUBEYRAN, declares “Schib machines have always supported us efficiently, fully meeting our need to pack a wide range of sweets, biscuits, marshmallow and pastry. We are really satisfied, the machines are very flexible, reliable and easy to clean. Furthermore, they are backed up by a flawless after-sales service. No doubt, all of these pluses led us to choose Schib once again when we had to purchase our fourth packaging machine. Actually, this one will be an advanced, new generation CO50, featuring an appealing design coupled with even higher performances.”

    Nougat Packaging VideoThe CO50’s rotary motion twin jaws, operated by 3-axis drive technology, will allow speeds of up to 200 ppm. The machine is equipped with motorized film pre-feed, reel run out sensor, pre-printed film registration, and many other options.  

    Originally brown in color, made of honey, spices and walnuts, ‘Nux Gatum’ has spanned centuries from the ancient times up to present days.  Its journey from the East to Greece led it to Marseille where it set in under the name of ‘Nougat’ in the XVII century, among the 13 most typical Provencal desserts.  By going up the Rhône, a determining stop in Montélimar changed the brown color of this home-made confectionery into the white one and the walnuts into almonds. Widely exported and appreciated all around the world, this popular and nice delicacy connected to the memories of festivals and holidays still remains a Provencal sweet that cannot be forgotten once tasted.

  • Sachs Peanuts Installs Hayssen Packaging Line for In-Shell Products

    by Lacy Cooper | Apr 26, 2016
    Sachs Peanuts

    Sachs Peanuts has a proud tradition of quality and service dating back four generations, family owned and operated for more than a century. Sachs processes, packages and distributes quality salted in-shell peanuts from the heart of the Virginia and the Carolina’s peanut growing regions. As industry leaders in private label and co-branded peanuts, they service retailers and wholesalers, including supplying peanuts to many popular restaurant chains.

    To meet market demands, Sachs recently invested in their Clarkton, North Carolina facility, including a new vertical form fill seal packaging system from Hayssen Flexible Systems. In an effort to continually improve, Sachs regularly works to develop new products and services to better serve their customers. As equally important is their commitment to on-time delivery and safety. Sachs chose a stainless steel washdown ULTIMA ST 13-22 bagging system from Hayssen Flexible Systems.  The equipment is constructed with stainless steel product contact surfaces designed to withstand the salt fines from the roasted and salted peanuts. The open access tubular frame provides ease of maintenance and cleaning for the machine operators as well. Hayssen also provided Sachs with an integrated Yamato 514 multi-head scale.

    The packaging line consists of a vibratory infeed conveyor with product screening. The infeed conveyor feeds product to a bucket elevator which elevates the peanuts to the height of the Yamato scale. Again, the product goes to a vibratory conveyor for a second screening of product, and then dispensing onto the scale at a steady rate.

    The peanuts are then dropped into the ULTIMA ST for form, fill and seal. The laminate film is pulled from a roll, formed over the forming tube, filled with the peanuts and then sealed as a completed bag. The packaging line also includes an incline conveyor that receives completed bags off the bagger and dispenses it onto a rotary table for manual case packing.

    Currently, Sachs is using this system to package a variety of package sizes, up to 8 different weights, anywhere from 8 oz to 5 lb pillow packages. The ULTIMA ST is well suited in that it offers quick changeovers with Allen-Bradley controls and HMI screen. The 8 oz packages are running at 75 packages per minute, while the larger 5 lb bags run at a consistent 40 packages per minute.

    Tom Ribken, Sales Executive for this project, comments, “Sachs Peanuts has been a Hayssen customer for 2 decades now.  The new Ultima ST/Yamato scale system we recently provided replaced an older system from the 1990’s.  Now Sachs Peanuts can fulfill their large orders for the 5 pound bags much faster compared to before.  We are proud to partner with Sachs and look forward to supplying future needs as their company grows.”

  • Reduce Air Consumption and Cost with Servo Jaw Retrofit for Ultima VFFS

    by Lacy Cooper | Apr 05, 2016
    As in most areas of production, air has a huge impact not only in performance but also reflects a significant cost within everyday production.

    airconsumptionproductHayssens’ product development engineers have been working in partnership with one of our Key Account customers to develop a solution that addresses sealing issues directly related to air dependencies. As a solution, we created the Servo-Jaw Actuator update. This upgrade has been installed at our customer’s facility and has been running for over 6 months with no issues.

    The customer has been able to not only reduce air consumption overall for the specific line, but has also improved overall performance (bags per minute). This is due to consistent cycling provided by the servo motor that controls the overall sealing motion of the jaws. As the machine is operating, it experiences less faults thanks to no air needed to complete the hermetic seal.

    Our Key Account Customer is very encouraged with this update and project. So much so, that they have purchased 7 new machines with this actuator system.

    We look forward to continue working with this customer, but most importantly we look forward to continue growing our partnerships with our customers, building lasting relationships through a lifetime of customer service.

    If you would like more information on this jaw actuator system, please contact us at

    T Wilson & SonsT.Wilson’s fresh carrots packaged on Hayssen Flexible Systems VFFS machine

    T.Wilson and Sons (Farmers) Ltd, a family-run business in Merseyside, England, farms a wide variety of high quality fresh produce. In order to pack all their fresh products, T.Wilson relied once again on Hayssen Flexible Systems’ technology, specifically a Simionato Logic vertical packaging machine.

    During the Pre-Dispatch Inspection, Rob Wilson explained his decision to buy the Logic bag maker, “I need a machine that is easy to use and when switched on, it just works. This is what I will get with the Simionato Logic 35 bagger. It is a simple machine, versatile and long lasting.”

    The customer’s existing weighing system feeds the Hayssen vertical packaging machine with fresh carrots. The carrots then fall into a custom-made cone and a forming tube. The tube has a shatterproof mechanism, which eliminates any problems related to film breakage during the product flow.

  • SOUTHERN SALADS Avanza Con Movimiento Continuo

    by Lacy Cooper | Dec 18, 2015

    Southern SaladsSouthern Salads,con sede en Kent en el Reino Unido ha instalado recientemente dos Novus 350S para empacar su lechuga Iceberg y otras ensaladas en hojas. Esta instalación forma parte de una importante inversión en su planta de procesamiento y empaque.

    Southern Salads es un negocio familiar gran éxito. Empezando de los mercados de Londres, su fundador CEO & Ray Boakes desarrolló el negocio mediante el suministro de lechuga picada a cadenas de restaurantes multinacionales y ha continuado a servir a este mercado desde entonces. Southern Salads es un cliente histórico Hayssen Flexible Systems que utilizan varias envasadoras intermitentes Sandiacre TG 320 para empacar sus productos.

    Cuando decidieron seguir adelante con el embalaje de movimiento continuo, fuè natural elegir una solucion de Hayssen Flexible Systems.

    La nuevas máquinas Novus han sido diseñados específicamente para mejorar la velocidad, la integridad de los paquetes y reducir los costos de mantenimiento y de servicio respeto a las máquinas actuales.

    El dispositivo acomodador de producto, único en su diseño, evita que el producto penetre entre las mordazas y ofrecer tiempos de sellado extendidos y una mayor integridad del sello de los paquetes. El exprimidor independiente de las bolsas de la Novus reduce los niveles de oxígeno en la bolsa, mientras que la función de inyección de gas ralentiza el crecimiento de bacterias, aumentando la vida útil del producto. La capacidad de Hayssen Flexible Systems de suministrar máquinas con un aumento garantizado de la producción además de la integridad del sello fue un factor de decisión clave para ayudarnos a servir mejor a nuestros clientes", dice Andrew Boakes, Director General de Southern Salads.

    Andrew Boakes explica, además, "Después de haber experimentado durante muchos años el servicio de soporte técnico de Hayssen Flexible Systems  fue una decisión fácil continuar nuestra relación con ellos. Su equipo técnico está siempre disponible para dar apoyo y asesoramiento que valoramos mucho.

  • Southern Salads Si Aggiorna, Acquistando Una LInea Continua

    by Lacy Cooper | Dec 16, 2015

    Southern SaladsSouthern Salads in Kent, nel Regno Unito, ha recentemente installato due nuove Novus 350 per confezionare lattuga e altre tipologie di insalata. Questi impianti fanno parte di un investimento importante negli impianti di processo.

    Southern Salads è un’azienda a conduzione familiare. “È partito tutto dai mercati di Londra”, ci racconta il CEO e fondatore Ray Boakes, colui che ha potenziato l’azienda fornendo lattuga già tagliata a multinazionali e catene di ristoranti.

    Southern Salads è un cliente di lunga data di Hayssen Flexible Systems. In passato ha acquistato confezionatrici verticali intermittente modello Sandiacre TG 320 per il confezionamento dei loro prodotti. Al momento di decidere di acquistare una confezionatrice continua, era logico scegliere la tecnologia Hayssen Flexible Systems. Le nuove confezionatrici Novus sono state studiate specificatamente per migliorare la velocità, l’integrità dell’imballo e ridurre i costi di manutenzione e di servizio nei confronti delle macchine esistenti.

    Il dispositivo “stager” nella confezionatrice Novus impedisce al prodotto di finire sulle pinze saldanti Quali-seal, offrendo così tempi di tenuta più estese ed una saldatura maggiore. Il dispositivo “independent bag squeezer” riduce il livello di ossigeno nel sacchetto, contenendo la crescita batterica nel dispositivo di iniezione gas, incrementando la longevità sulla shelf-life del prodotto. "Hayssen Flexible Systems fornisce impianti che garantiscono l’aumento della produttività, l'integrità delle confezioni, ed è stato questo il fattore chiave che ci ha portato all’acquisto della Novus", afferma Andrew Boakes, direttore di Souther Salad.

    Andrew Boakes continua "Dopo aver sperimentato per anni l’eccellente servizio cliente di Hayssen Flexible Systems, è stata una decisione semplice continuare il nostro rapporto. Il team di tecnici è sempre disponibile a dare sostegno e consulenza".

    by Lacy Cooper | Dec 03, 2015

    Southern Salads is a hugely successful family run business. Starting life off in markets in London, CEO & founder Ray Boakes developed the business by supplying shredded lettuce to multinational high street restaurant chains and has continued to serve this market ever since.

    Southern Salads is a long-standing Hayssen Flexible Systems’ customer who utilise several intermittent Sandiacre TG 320 machines to pack their products. When they decided to move forward with continuous motion packing, it was a logical move to choose Hayssen Flexible Systems’ machinery.

    The unique product stager device prevents product from getting into the end seals and the Novus’ Quali-seal jaws offer extended sealing times and increased pack seal integrity. The Novus’s independent bag squeezer reduces oxygen levels in the bag, while the gas flushing feature slows down bacterial growth, increasing the longevity of the product’s shelf life. "Hayssen Flexible Systems’ ability to supply machines with a guaranteed increase in output and seal integrity was a key decision making factor to help us better serve our customers,” says Andrew Boakes, Managing Director at Southern Salads.
