Implementing Preventative Maintenance for Quality Food Production Equipment Fabrication

With six facility locations across Minnesota and Colorado, the MultiSource Manufacturing network has capabilities that meet the needs for a wide range of manufacturing industries. Our production of components and assemblies for the medical, aerospace, semiconductor, food, and many other industries is currently provided worldwide to OEMs and other customers.

 

As a contract manufacturer, MultiSource is a one-stop-shop for many services from precision CNC machining to plastics fabrication. Forpak, a division of MultiSource Manufacturing, is a leader in the design and manufacturing of quality food production equipment, has opened the door for the MultiSource network to offer more and more specialized equipment for players in the food sorting and packing industry.

 

With over 25 years of experience in engineering and building innovative food production equipment, Forpak has been able to provide unique and effective solutions with more growth under the umbrella of MultiSource. Recently, Forpak has worked to improve and implement a rigorous, well-planned preventative maintenance program.

 

New Forpak Preventative Maintenance Program

Forpak customers benefit from more than just a quality product built with their needs in mind. They also get the long-term benefits of Forpak’s technical support and newly improved preventative maintenance program. This program is designed to provide routinely scheduled visits from Forpak’s maintenance technicians. Not only does this maintenance program limit downtime for your production schedule and properly train staff on operations, Forpak also offers options for discounts on parts, scheduled maintenance overall, and emergency visits.

 

The quality preventative maintenance Forpak customers will receive increases the time equipment is spent in effective production, improves complete project efficiency, reduces cost of ownership, extends the lifetime of their Forpak equipment, and provides precise historical record keeping of the maintenance schedule.

 

Each visit from Forpak’s preventative maintenance team also offers comprehensive staff training on the equipment’s operations, troubleshooting and review of the equipment’s performance, optimization of the equipment, and access to a wide log of available parts.

 

This new preventative maintenance program ensures your Forpak equipment will continue to operate at peak performance with an extended lifetime and access to all the parts you may need. With the added support of Forpak’s technical team just a phone call away, you can rest easy that your equipment will never compromise your production schedule.

FORPAK® SHIPS LARGEST PROJECT OF 2018

FORPAK FORPAK

In June FORPAK shipped its largest project of the year to date – a dual system with two forms of laning equipment, vision and quality control and of course stacking equipment to a North American customer looking to dramatically improve throughput volume in frozen hash brown production.   The FORPAK full system can stack at 800 patties per minute.  In this high-volume application for rectangular product, the customer will achieve dramatic labor reductions while improving product flow and quality.

“This has been a tremendously successful team effort with the customer to develop a great solution to fit their specific needs,” said Forpak GM Patrick Goche.

Automated Packaging Solutions on the Rise with the Help of Contract Manufacturing

We live in a rapidly changing world. Advances in technology change industries daily, and companies have to keep up to survive. At MultiSource Manufacturing, LLC we understand the importance of change and strive to improve our manufacturing systems every day and work to acquire up-and-coming companies that can offer a greater range of high-quality services to our customers. With our locations across Minnesota and Colorado, the MultiSource network is able to offer reliable, customizable contract manufacturing across the country.

 

In 2006, the MultiSource network acquired Forpak and have since innovated changes in food packaging, stacking, and handling, offering solutions from the ground up. This has made us an industry leader in designing and building automated packaging systems.

 

Designed and built in-house, Forpak’s custom automatic stacking equipment meets industry standards for hygiene and sanitization and limits human contact, and therefore, error. With the additional integration of Allen-Bradley controls and Cognex vision systems, our custom equipment features precision-based processing and data recording capabilities.

 

PR Newswire predicts a rise of food sorting machines value on the market, and growth forecasts like these show Forpak and the MultiSource network the importance of continuing to improve and develop stronger designs and smarter automated equipment for food packing.

 

With the quickly changing food packaging industry, Forpak solutions are meeting customer needs at a critical time when accuracy and production schedules can’t be compromised. Rockwell Automation outlines the benefits our automated packaging equipment offers in “Solutions in Action: Forpak.”

 

Forpak’s GSS, GSSB, and GSII stackers provide the efficiency, speed, precision, and automation the industry needs to streamline food sorting and packing. Our machines sort, stack, and pack at rates of 80-100 pieces per minute per lane, and with customizable lanes, conveyer belts, CE compliancy, autotransfers, and vision systems, our customers can find exactly what they need with Forpak.

 

Because of Forpak and the MultiSource network capabilities in design and fabrication, we can also provide innovative solutions for custom equipment tailored to our customers’ exact specifications and goals in food sorting and packing. From baked goods to meats, our automated sorting, stacking, and packing equipment provides solutions for the food industry.
