Fresh Produce Handling

Western Mechanical Handling works with major blue-chip food producers to improve production processes and reduce costs by providing cost effective, bespoke automation solutions to a range of handling needs from field to packhouse.

When setting up a new production line or upgrading an existing one, with new major process items, it is important to maintain the integrity of the connections between these processes. WMH has 40-years’ experience in providing solutions that ensure your inline process operates with the minimum of operator intervention and with the minimum of disruption at product change-overs.

Every factory is unique in design and layout, WMH recognises this and is able to work within the space available to join your major process machinery into a seamless production line.

Areas where WMH is able to assist include:

Collation of products
Loading flow wrappers and cartonners
End of line packing into transport cases or trays
Case and tray distribution to despatch
Case and tray collation
Robotic pick and place
Robotic palletisation
Waterjet cutting
Empty and full pallet handling
Quality control and vision inspection
Process line control

WMH understands the demands of a high care environment and designs all machines to be washed down and where possible minimises the areas where build-up of debris can occur, with sloping surfaces and spaced-off bearings and joining brackets and support frames.
