When it comes to packaging machinery, Emrich is unique in being able to assemble their PFM Hurricane Flow Wrapping machines and build the automatic infeed systems locally, allowing the machinery to be customised to match clients’ requirements.
In packaging machinery, the automatic infeed system phases the tray of products so they are correctly positioned for wrapping. This enables the machinery to operate with accuracy and at peak efficiency, with significantly less labour required.
Based in Australia, Emrich Packaging Machinery Pty Ltd has a team of experienced technicians and engineers who are skilled in the design and fabrication of customised infeed systems as part of the PFM Hurricane Flow Wrapper.
Emrich supplies and services the Italian designed and manufactured PFM Hurricane Flow Wrapper, a relationship it is has had since 1990. This experience, combined with Emrich’s extensive stock of spare parts and technical expertise, means it is able to build complete systems that are an exact match with the requirements of individual customers.
“Our ability to fabricate infeed systems to suit each customer’s needs is a strong point of difference in the packaging equipment market,” said Steve Richardson, Emrich Packaging Machinery Pty Ltd’s Managing Director. “We’ve been in the business for almost three decades, and this gives us the knowhow and skills to build the system to exactly match the packaging objectives of our customers.”
Emrich’s engineers work closely with their customers to fully understand their processing requirements. Drawing on these insights, they then design and build an infeed system for the PFM Hurricane Flow Wrapper that delivers optimal performance.
“Examples of this are the in-line feeders we have developed for trays of apples and tomatoes, or our cross-feeders for stock cubes,” said Mr Richardson. “The products are automatically fed into trays so they are ready for their next stage of packaging.”
Apart from its Australian built flow wrappers, Emrich also has another home-grown advantage, with Steve’s two sons entering the business and quickly making their mark.
Michael and Matthew Richardson both joined Emrich in 2012, and each has brought valuable experience to the company’s operations.
“Michael has an extensive commercial background which has been very useful in his role as National Sales Manager,” said Mr Richardson. “And Matthew has a strong technical aptitude, and this has been of great benefit in his role as Packaging Engineer.”
Mr Richardson is delighted that the business he established in 1986 has grown into a world classteam offering advice, supply and servicing of packaging machinery Australasia wide. “Emrich has always been a family-run business, and I’m very pleased that the next generation are just as interested in the industry as I am.”
Emrich offers a wide range of ready-built and custom made packaging machinery solutions for all types of packaging requirements. Its equipment is used extensively in the dairy, fresh produce and baking industries, and also for general product packaging.
