LICHFIELD, ENGLAND, July 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Systems Integration (SI) is pleased to announce the expansion of its Integreater solution at the Caledonian Cheese Company.
The product management and labelling solution integrates with the Stranraer site's new Power Food Technology robotic palletiser. This allows the company to auto assemble pallets of cheese blocks, ready for storage.
Integreater works with their weighing, labelling and outer case assembly equipment, to control the batch traceability of individual cheese blocks. Throughout the process, it will validate the unique identity of each block by scanning the associated barcode. Integreater counts and instructs the robotic palletiser to pick and palletise sample cheese blocks at predetermined intervals. It also provides a pallet manifest, including the volume, batch number and product description.
SI's MD, Rob Stephens, stated: "We are proud that the Caledonian Cheese Company has selected us to provide its factory management software. Integreater's flexibility means that it has been able to grow with the business and integrate with any third party systems. We are helping an increasing number of cheese businesses in the UK and Ireland and are hoping to continue to grow our customer base in this important sector."
