Case Study – Bait-Tech Ltd
Bait-Tech manufactures a range of high quality fishing baits, including liquid attractors, additives and oils. With a growing reputation in the fishing industry and a large increase in product demand, Bait-Tech made contact with Universal at the PPMA 2015 Exhibition at the NEC.
Having previous experience in the fishing baits industry, we were delighted to get involved in the project and provided machinery demonstrations on our stand at the Exhibition.
Bait-Tech needed a machine that would fill PET bottles with a full range of fishing bait liquids. A range of fill from 50ml to 1000ml was required, with filling speeds up to 20 units per minute.
Products to fill:
To achieve up to 20 bottles per minute would require a 2 head semi-automatic volumetric filling machine. Universal proposed a twin head Posifill V Twin with rotary dispensing valve heads suitable for a full range of fishing bait liquids.
Universal delivered and set up the machine at the customer’s factory and provided comprehensive operator training.
We are very much enjoying the filling machine supplied by Universal. We are really happy with the level of service the company have provided from the first time we met at the PPMA 2015 Exhibition. The demonstration at our location was what we needed to help make a decision to purchase, as it showed the ease of use, cleaning and that it could handle our different liquids – we have runny water based liquids, to thick, sticky sauce type ones and the demo smashed through them with no problems.
When we placed an order we were kept up to date with the progress of the build and it was good to hear it was being thoroughly tested before it was shipped to us.
The training and installation time was spot on and any last minute adjustments were made and we were left with a fully functioning machine which the staff have enjoyed using.
We purchased a double nozzle machine and we can fill two different liquids at the same time which has increased our productivity and efficiency.
It is easy to use and move about.
We don’t have any issues and we’re very happy we made the investment.
