Pearson Foods, an innovative fresh foods company located in Grand Rapids, MI, recently added the Hayssen ISB vertical form-fill-seal bagger to its fresh produce packaging lines, which also feature legacy Hayssen Ultima baggers.
After months of watching and measuring, Pearson determined that it can run the ISB bagger 18-22% faster than the other older machines on site.
Pearson Foods' new 19-year-old ISB operator—who had no previous packaging equipment experience—learned to effectively operate the machinery within 2 days of training, which was made even easier as the ISB can be switched to Spanish with the simple push of a button.
"The machine is intuitive," Nelson said. This combination of intuitive design and ease of operation makes the challenges presented by labor shortage and high employee turnover a non-issue.
