Gordian has supplied 15 StraPack RQ-8Y Automatic Side Seal Strapping Machines to Intergreen’s facility in Newport, Hull.
Intergreen is a specialist in the sourcing and sales of flowers and plants, Experts in the production and supply of bespoke flower and plant concepts to multiple retailers.
When Intergreen opened their state of the art flower packing facility in East Yorkshire in early 2011, they brought with them several RQ-8Ys from their Holbeach facility. Intergreen continued to invest in their strapping equipment in 2011 and 2012 and now has 15 StraPack RQ-8Ys: 10 being fully automated machines with in-feed and out-feed conveyors, and 5 stand-alone machines. Each machine applies a single strap around a wet-pack Procona.
The RQ-8Y was chosen by Intergreen for its robustness and reliability. Particularly at peak times such as Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, maximum up-time is of paramount importance. The machines have only a minimum amount of moving parts with permanently lubricated mechanisms, reducing wear and tear and increasing operational life.
The RQ-8Y is ready to operate in less than 25 seconds. Standard features include auto strap re-feed, variable strap tension (up to 80kg) and a self-diagnostic function. Finally, the Auto Shut-Off function ensures that the machine enters standby mode after three minutes thereby saving energy.
“The RQ-8Y has proved itself to be highly reliable. The machines are maintained by Gordian’s engineers who provide a first class service.” Steve Dykes, Site Services Manager at Intergreen Newport.
