Butter typically arrives into a processing facility boxed and wrapped in around 25 kg units. Before any reworking, melting or other downstream processes can be carried out it needs to be de-boxed and unwrapped. Once de-boxed, which tends to take place outside of the processing area to avoid dust from the cardboard, the new SPX FLOW Butter Unwrapper machine takes away the manual lifting associated with removing the plastic covering around the large blocks of butter. Removing the need for manual lifting protects operators from injury, ensures compliance with local health and safety regulations, and simplifies operational procedures as operators do not need to changeover to avoid exceeding daily maximum load lifts.
