WMH Look To The Future In Celebrating 40 Years
After months of meticulous planning and hard work the WMH open day finally dawned on a cool but sunny Thursday at the end of April.

With 40-years of history behind it WMH was looking very much to the future by opening up the factory doors and welcoming a range of existing and new customers, suppliers and business partners to the informal event in Callington.

On display were two of WMH’s latest robotic demonstration units alongside a small inline grill, peristaltic depositor, a cheese block turn unit and several conveyors. Complimenting this line-up was Eden Weigh who brought along their new check-weigh unit and volumetric depositors and Mitsubishi Electric Automation were on hand to offer their knowledge and expertise of the latest drive and automation control products.

During the afternoon of the Thursday activity moved three miles down the road to St Mellion International resort where following a buffet lunch five teams of golfers took to the greens of the Kernow course for 18 holes of golf. The sunshine was punctuated only once by a short sharp Cornish storm which saw everyone taking shelter under their umbrellas and under nearby trees before proceeding.

“The golf was great fun and I enjoyed the course, company and hospitality and more importantly, the open day gave me a good insight into WMH, your capabilities and plans for the future”
John Anderson, Ministry of Cake

Whilst the landlubbers enjoyed the rolling landscape of St Mellion, twelve intrepid seafarers took to the seas on the Tectona, an historic, 80 foot ketch operated by the Island Trust. Setting sail from Plymouth the crew set a course for the Eddystone lighthouse before tacking back towards Cawsand Bay en-route back to Plymouth.

“The sailing was fantastic, the evening meal good company and the open day very enlightening”
Byron Davis, BFS Europe Ltd

The day was concluded by an informal three-course dinner, for golfers, sailors and staff, and prize-giving back in the comfort of St Mellion.

WMH would like to thank everyone who attended the events and helped make the days such a great success. “To hear such positive feedback for the event has made all the hard work over the past couple of months truly worthwhile” Helen Northcott, WMH.

Thanks must go to Julie Grey and her team at St Mellion for all their support in the run up to and on the day and to Ben and Heather of the Island Trust for their hospitality on the Tectona. Final thanks must go to everyone at WMH who helped to prepare the factory for visitors at the same time as completing several key projects.

Quality Assured Thanks To Ishida Accuracy And Reliability
Italian cured meats are loved throughout the world. And while global demand for the products has inevitably led to the introduction of mass production and the automation of many processes, the original traditions and heritage of manufacturing are still fundamental to many of the food companies in the Lombard and Brianza regions of Italy.

Certainly this has been a key reason for the continuing success of specialist pork producer Fumagalli Industria Alimentari S.p.A, a family-run business to this day, whose antecedents date back to the 1920s where the family owned a ‘Salumaria’ (delicatessen) in Medea, Milan.

In the 1930s the business started to expand with the establishment of its own slaughtering house, which both increased the range of products in the shop and allowed the sale of these to neighbouring regions. In the following decades, the company continued to invest and expand with the opening of new facilities, including a plant in Langhirano specifically to produce the world-famous Prosciutto di Parma, and its first sales outside Italy in Germany and Switzerland.

By the start of the 1990s this ongoing investment had opened up several new export opportunities for Fumagalli, particularly in Northern Europe. At the same time, many customers in these markets began to seek further assurances as to the quality of the products, particularly in areas such as supply chain control, safety and health.

This led Fumagalli to implement its own integrated supply chain system that encompasses all phases of its operation – from breeding and slaughtering to the transformation and packaging of the final products.

As part of this, at its own farm in Nerviano the company breeds a specific genetic strain of typical Italian pigs that combines quality of taste with meeting the latest nutritional and health needs of consumers and still ensuring the well-being of the animals.

All of which today enables Fumagalli to offer a range of products of unsurpassed quality, which combine traditional methods with modern manufacturing to meet the highest standards of some of Europe’s top food retailers, and achieve 60% of its revenues through export, not just in Europe but worldwide to countries including Japan, South Korea, and Canada.

It is hardly surprising that this success has led to significant increases in production – from 2000 to today the company has doubled its volumes. This in turn has meant that the sophistication of the production processes needs to be matched by the further automation of its packing operations in order to maximise throughput and efficiencies. And playing a key role in helping to achieve this has been the installation of two Ishida weighers at Fumagalli’s state-of-the-art factory in Tavernerio, near Como.

The first weigher was installed in 2006 to pack diced pancetta, supplied to leading retailers in Europe. More recently a second model has been added, both to help cope during periods of high demand and also to handle a new range of snack products.

Both weighers - 16 head versions from Ishida’s cost-effective RS series - are helping to maximise line efficiencies thanks to their excellent reliability and accuracy, with each line capable of handling around 20,000kg of product each month, equivalent to 1,700,000 packs every year.

The new line in particular is able to focus on Fumagalli’s recently launched snacks range of sliced salami with a variety of accompaniments including bread sticks, olives and cheese. The weigher operates in twin mode with eight heads dedicated to each product.

A specially-devised moving distribution system beneath the weigher transfers the product into thermoformed twin-compartment trays, which are then top-sealed.

For the high-volume diced pancetta line, where product is also discharged into twin-compartment trays, the weigher features Teflon coating to enable the product to keep moving freely during the weighing process.

Both weighers are offering excellent accuracy on pack sizes of 100g (two x 50g compartments) and 154g (two x 77g).

“The Ishida weighers have played a valuable role in ensuring that quality is maintained as we automate more of our processes,” explains manufacturing manager Andrea Fumagalli.

He cites the machines’ reliability as one of their major benefits.

“In the five months since I joined the business, I have experienced some sort of problem with nearly every other piece of equipment in the factory except the Ishidas,” he explains.

Other benefits of the weighers are their ease of operation and cleaning.

“Product changeovers are simple to effect and the machines can be easily dismantled and reassembled for the thorough cleaning that takes place at the end of every shift,” says Andrea.

In terms of accuracy, giveaway is no more than1.2% over an entire month’s production.

“Our reputation is based solely on quality, not quantity,” concludes Andrea. “The Ishida weighers are critical in ensuring we maintain and build on this reputation.”

The weighers were supplied and installed by Ishida Europe’s Italian agent, Itech Italia.

How Ishida Helps UK Salad Producer Maintain Its Zenith
The combination of Ishida’s advanced weighing technology and project management skills have played a significant part in the recent growth of specialist UK salad producer Zenith Nurseries, based near Evesham in Worcestershire.

Four Ishida weighers are handling around ten baby leaf products, including rocket, watercress and spinach, packed into both punnets (from 75g to 150g) and bags (from 75g to 500g), with weighing accuracy to within 1% of target weight across the different pack sizes. Speeds vary according to what is being packed but are well within the company’s requirements.

As part of the installation of the fourth weighing and packing line, Ishida has project managed the complete re-design of Zenith’s pack house to accommodate the new line and make the entire operation more efficient.

This was a major undertaking with the Ishida project team emptying the pack house and re-installing the three existing lines, together with new steelwork and conveyors, alongside the new line. To maximise space and efficiency, the team introduced a workable product flow with all product entering the area from one end and leaving it packed at the other. Three weighing and bagging lines are grouped in a line at the far end of the pack house while a conveyor takes product packed into punnets from the other Ishida multihead weigher to the packing area where all packs are boxed and placed onto pallets.

To keep disruption to a minimum, nine days were originally allowed for the transformation of the pack house, utilising the quieter periods over two weekends. However, the Ishida team was able to complete the task in just five days with some production able to start up as early as the Thursday.

“This is typical of the support I have received from Ishida over the years,” says Zenith managing director Franco Barone. “It is one of the reasons why I will only deal with Ishida when it comes to the weighing side of our operation.”

The latest Ishida salad weigher to be installed is a 14 head 5 litre salad specification model, featuring C4 contact parts, Ishida’s recently-developed ‘easy-motion’ material that helps keep salad leaves moving through the weigher.

All the weighers are easy to set up, and changeovers between products or pack sizes can be carried out at the touch of a button on the machines’ remote control units. Zenith also implements rigorous hygiene standards and the ease of cleaning of the weighers, with parts quickly removed for washing, helps to minimise the downtime for this operation.

With Zenith operating as much as 14 hours a day, and up to seven days a week, the reliability of the weighers is another important factor. “I can be pretty certain that the Ishidas will not let me down,” says Franco. “This is very important as we would certainly struggle if one line was out of commission for any length of time.”

One of the most impressive factors in Zenith’s success is the fact that the company’s expansion has been entirely self-funded. Not surprisingly, this means that every investment in new equipment is very carefully considered. Nevertheless, says Franco, price is not the only issue.

“There is no point buying the cheapest machine if its lack of reliability means it is not working for half the time,” he points out. “Service support and back-up in the event of a problem are also essential.

“And the quality of the equipment and the high levels of service are the reasons why we continue to partner with Ishida.”
