Apples are one of the first foods many people eat as children, and they continue to be one of the most basic foods we have in the world.
Apples are found in a variety of products and a variety of formats – whether it is applesauce into a jar, single serving packages of slices apples (packaged via a vertical form fill seal machine), or dried apples into a trail mix or other snack.
While apples are a central part of many people’s daily fruit intakes, they also present some unique packaging challenges.
When sliced apples are run through packaging machinery – such as a multi-head scale – the composition of the fruit makes the product move extremely quickly through the system, which can cause accuracy issues if the system is not designed properly.
This is just one of the lessons the Ohlson team has learned during our 50+ years in the packaging industry – let us show you the rest.
