Kenray Video: Product Blockage Solutions for VFFS Machines

Kenray Forming Ltd – Product Blockage Solutions for VFFS Machines

What I’d like to do in today’s short blog is to talk to you a little bit about product flow and how we might be able to help you with any product flow issues you might be experiencing

As you can see on the diagram we’ve got potatoes going into a straight tube and as you can see at the top on the right side of the diagram they become stuck in the top of the tube.

So what we’ve been able to do in this particular instance is redesigned the angle of the inlet so that combined with streaming from the weigher. the potatoes flow freely through the tube.

Looking at the diagram on the left, we can see a typical high-speed snack tube, so not only have we altered the inlet angles, but we’ve also cut out the back of the tube to allow the product to fall through the tube freely.

Another way of removing blockages is to use a poker, this is being demonstrated in this clip

Thank you for watching. I hope this and the subsequent videos will give you a little bit more depth into what we actually do. If you need help and support, the Kenray Team are only a phone call away – +44 (0)1530 400 100 or email perform@kenrayglobal.co.uk

Kenray Video: Introduction to Site 2

Kenray Forming Ltd – Introduction to Site 2

Here we are outside site 2.  Site 2 is where we make our frames and other engineered items.

Our Ramada Laser Cutter is capable of cutting accurately and quickly all the parts required for the fabrication process.

You can see we have two CNC lathes. One is used for tubes and the other CNC / Milling Machine is capable of making any parts.

These are our multi-access machines. All our machines are capable of taking information from the CAD Cam system to produce parts. We also have a 3D printing facility for prototyping

kenray Supports Twycross Zoo

Kenray is proud to support Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire, just 12 miles from our Coalville Offices. We understand the challenging conditions brought about by Covid to the Zoo in terms of lost visitor revenue and have decided to make Twycross Zoo our Charity of the Year for 2021.

A donation of £2000 has been made and further fundraising initiatives will be undertaken throughout the year by our team.

Mark Evans, Commercial Director added: “The Pandemic has had a knock-on effect for many and Twycross Zoo has been unable to open to the public. Living locally, Directors and staff have all visited the Zoo with our families and we wanted to support where we can. The animals still need food, shelter and vet visits during lockdown which costs. It is vital local businesses get behind the Zoo to ensure it can remain in business to welcome visitors again. Delighted that Kenray has been able to offer some support.”

Kenray Video: Introduction to Site1

Kenray Forming Ltd – Introduction to Site 1

The next video in our series is an introduction to our Site 1 in Leicestershire, UK showcasing our facilities and our fantastic team that helps Kenray to deliver effective forming solutions:

Here we are outside Site One, what I’d like to do today is just show you some of the facilities we have inside:

 

Here we are inside the Engineering Office. In total, we have 9 engineers, three of whom are dedicated to Research and Development.

 

Here we are in the Canteen which is also used as a meeting room for our Production Staff.

Welcome to the Directors office shared with my business partner Andrew Dennis. Over here we have our communications equipment which has been recently installed and this allows us to communicate effectively between the three sites, it also allows us to talk to our customers or suppliers and other members of the Kenray group across the globe.

Also onsite is one of our main fabrication sites which you can see behind me & also on the shop floor we have two break presses.
