The Bradman Lake Group Ltd is a leader in packaging technology solutions, incorporating the world-renowned Autowrappers and Europack brands.б═ Our projects consisted of an infeed and outfeed conveyor system.

The infeed systems used Modu System 85, 145 and 225mm wide conveyors handling a variety of different sized wrapped baked product.б═ The high speed system rans at over 60 m/min.б═ The stainless steel conveyors included friction topped chain and SEW motor gearbox drives.

Each of our three systems consisted of around 15 Modu System conveyors per line..б═

The outfeed system handled 605mm x 400mm x 150mm plastic baskets fed on a two tier stainless steel roller conveyor system.б═ Empty baskets feed in on the lower level and once filled, full baskets would merge onto one outfeed line.

Monk designed a line which would feed at a production rate of one basket every 2 seconds from a single line distributing 5 machines.б═ Our control system managed the line, rapidly diverting empty baskets to make sure no machine was starved or work.

A full HMI touch screen with a graphical representation of the line was developed showing faults and sensors.б═

The line was fully assembled and tested in the UK before breaking down and reassembling at the customer site in the Middle East.
