FISCHBEIN Saxon recently sold special MTS bag sewing systems to Marel, a provider of advanced equipment, systems and services used in the fish, meat and poultry industries.
The heavy-duty units and accompanying bag handling technology will be installed aboard ocean going processing ships and in onshore processing plants.
Commenting on the choice of Fischbein bagging equipment, Ruben Nielsen, Area Sales Manager for Marel Seattle, said the fishing industry is constantly changing, and Marel has to keep up with the times. “We chose Fischbein because it has good-quality products, and we like to work with known brands.”
The Fischbein MTS will be used to bag and close approximately 120 tons of dressed fish frozen in 10- and 20-kilo blocks. Marel Seattle’s new method of running bags through the Fischbein system makes the packaging process simple and fast and saves valuable time on board the ships where the product is caught.
“The sewing systems, robust in design, are known for their long wearing properties and high output, and can be installed with complete turnkey bag handling and palletizing technologies, designed to meet the bespoke customers’ needs” says Barry Cox, UK sales & service Manager of Fischbein Saxon.
