In-line Production of Chilled & Frozen Foods

Western Mechanical Handling works with major blue-chip food manufacturers to improve production processes and reduce manufacturing costs by providing cost effective, bespoke automation solutions to a range of handling needs.

When setting up a new production line or upgrading an existing one, with new major process items, it is important to maintain the integrity of the connections between these processes. WMH has 40-years’ experience in providing solutions that ensure your inline process operates with the minimum of operator intervention and with the minimum of disruption at product change-overs.

Every factory is unique in design and layout, WMH recognises this and is able to work within the space available to join your major process machinery into a seamless production line.

Areas where WMH is able to assist include:

  • Pie and quiche assembly line off-load
  • Collation of products for oven loading
  • Oven unloading and gating
  • Collation of products for spiral freezer or chiller loading
  • High level freezer or chiller unloading
  • Loading flow wrappers and cartoners
  • End of line packing into transport cases or trays
  • Case and tray distribution to despatch
  • Case and tray collation
  • Robotic palletisation
  • Empty and full pallet handling
  • Quality control and vision inspection
  • Process line control

WMH understands the demands of a high care environment and designs all machines to be washed down and where possible minimises the areas where build-up of debris can occur, with sloping surfaces and spacing off of bearings and joining brackets and support frames.
