N&C Building Products Use Logic VFFS System To Pack Tile Grout

Dec 20, 2013

N&C Building Products based in Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, produces various Nicobond products for the building trade in the UK. Nicholls and Clarke is currently using an integrated Simionato Logic system, complete with 2 augers to pack their brand of tile grout. N&C is a long established builder’s merchant, established in 1875, and now provides over 60,000 building products to various trade professionals around the UK.

The Logic intermittent motion packaging machine is highly flexible and can pack a range of bag types, such as doy, quad pack and pillow pack. N&C Building Products’ packaging line system has been installed with a twin auger feed system with supporting gantry, which has been specifically designed to fit their unique requirements. For this particular system, both augers load two different types of grout, which produce a bag with mixed product. The system is capable of mixing two different products of specific weights, with the option to pack either one or two products.

Michelle Crayton, Production Manager at N&C Building Products, explained their recent purchase, “We decided to purchase the Simionato system because we were looking for a machine suitable for our packaging requirements that would fit in our budget. We are confident that we will always have great support.”

N&C Building Products’ Simionato system is currently packing 1kg, 2.5kg, 5kg and 10kg block bottom bags of tile grout in various colours in their factory in Stoke-on-Trent.
