Haskell explains that after running the new Frank-A-Matic Linker for some time, what stood out most was the improvements in the production process. “With this new linker, we are able to run up to 20 percent faster, depending on the size of the product. We also have a better weight control on the individual sausages and less giveaway". The company has also seen faster and more precise changeovers, which is important when running numerous products each day. Haskell continues, "our versatile product offering includes more than 40 different types of sausages for customers in retail and food service. The sausages have different lengths, diameters and are made from various meat mixes. Being able to change more quickly and easily between different products gives us a huge advantage.”
Growth through partnership
A large team from Marel has worked on developing the new Frank-A-Matic Linker. Haskell has met with many of the team members and has always sensed their complete dedication to making the product successful. “Throughout this process, Marel has proven to be a great partner. We have had frequent contact with the sales and service organization and whenever we wanted to try something new, Marel were happy to help us out. They have provided excellent training and top-notch, on-site support,” Haskell comments.
