Endoline Machinery’s 704 Fully Automatic Random Case Sealer, launched just last year, has been installed within The Lakes Free Range Egg Company (The Lakes) – due to growing pressure for the Cumbria based company to pack eggs within longer than standard cases.
Endoline re-engineered its flagship, 704 case sealer in a direct response to increasing demand from food manufactures for random machinery to seal a greater variety of case materials and sizes. Through technical enhancements, Endoline expanded the case size range by almost 60% at its greatest increase.
Now, the automated, high speed solution helping enhance production for family run The Lakes, has been integrated into its state of the art egg packing facility, alongside a Moba egg grading and packing system.
Dating back to 1870, the farm has been within the Brass family for generations, but it was only under current family owners, David and Helen, that The Lakes began supplying free range eggs just over 20 years ago. Significantly, what sets The Lakes apart, is its overriding commitment to adhering to leading animal welfare, ethical and environmental principles.
As part of the company’s mission to minimise the impact on the environment, The Lakes built the state of the art, egg packing facility which it continues to grow and develop.
During the development of the system, Endoline reduced the number of cylinders on the pneumatic 704 system to dramatically lower air consumption, and improve overall energy efficiency, meeting The Lakes’ ongoing energy objectives.
