Proseal Brand Supervisor Kaitlin Wyatt Discusses Innovation, Cost Savings, and Endless Support
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - Often it is easy to forget the many moving parts necessary to keep our essential industry flowing. Among those behind the scenes always ensuring suppliers can provide safe, high-quality product is Proseal, part of the JBT Corporation family.
“Proseal continues to work around the clock in the current unprecedented times, to supply customers with the machinery and parts that they need while seasonal machinery rental options continue to be available where a full machine purchase may not be feasible,” Kaitlin Wyatt, Brand Supervisor, tells me.
As times challenge us all, Proseal continues to maintain an unrivaled level of aftermarket support, 24 hours a day 365 days a year. In fact, its consistent delivery of leading-edge quality in both manufacturing and overall machine design is what Proseal sees as the key to its continued success.
“With over 20 years’ experience in the packaging industry, Proseal is a world leader in introducing and proliferating new and innovative packaging formats, completing multiple marketplace transformations by sharing its expertise on effective packaging techniques for a multitude of different products,” Kaitlin says, entering the next point of Proseal’s powerful portfolio.
This expansive offering includes:
- Core machinery range featuring models from compact bench-top equipment to fully automated, high-capacity in-line machines that can seal over 240 packs per minute
- Modern GT trays sealing range can be retrofitted with the newest and best technological innovations as and when they become available for protected long-term investment
- Flexible, five minute tool-change on any Proseal GT machine means, creating endless varieties of tray formats on one machine with minimal downtime
- Smallest footprint versus capacity on the market today, allowing producers to maximize throughput in the space available within their factories
“At the core of Proseal’s values is innovation, which is demonstrated through all its machine technology,” Kaitlin continues, introducing me to ProMotion™, ProVision™, and, at the forefront of Proseal’s commitment to more sustainable solutions, Eseal®. “In line with changing consumer demand for more eco-friendly solutions, Proseal offers the technology to seamlessly integrate alternative materials into all their seal functions.”
ProMotion is a continuous motion infeed system, particularly well suited to the fast-paced produce sector, allowing for an increase of up to 25 percent productivity and efficiency. ProVision, on the other hand, boosts connectivity by enabling the Proseal service team to help customers spot evolving machine problems through key indicators delivered by the software’s analytics. Where the former boosts mechanical productivity, the latter saves time and money by avoiding unnecessary site visits.
Completing the trio is Eseal, which Kaitlin says offers operators a high precision, high force electrical delivery system that significantly reduces air consumption by up to 92 percent and increases overall productivity via a reduced seal time.
“Proseal plays a vital role in ensuring that all of the efforts deployed by the supply chain are concluded by the produce arriving to the consumer plate safely, efficiently, and in the freshest state possible,” Kaitlin concludes.
