Tray sealing technology producer Proseal has announced it is supporting the continuing expansion of Chefgood — an Australian producer of home-delivery ready meals.

Two Proseal GT0e tray sealing machines have been installed at the Chefgood factory in Moorabbin, Victoria, replacing the company’s original tray sealer from another supplier.

According to Proseal, the machines have enabled Chefgood to achieve greater throughput, handling around 35,000 trays every week.

The Proseal GT0e has the flexibility to perform any type of heat seal to a pre-formed tray, including atmospheric, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), Vacuum MAP, Skin, Skin Plus and Skin Deep, and can handle all the latest tray formats and materials. Proseal Australia’s local manufacturing of tooling means the company is able to respond quickly to requests for new sets to meet changes in market demands.

Another benefit of the Proseal GT0e and all of the company’s tray sealing machines is that features can be added or removed as required. This offers users futureproofing with the ability to adapt to new packaging trends. Equally essential, machines are designed so that new features which further increase speed and sealing capabilities can be easily retrofitted when they are developed.

Other features include: Promotion, which regulates the feeding of trays into the machine; ProPosition tray positioning system; and seal strength and integrity are ensured by the company’s Eseal high-force electric heat seal system. The GT0e’s compact, rugged and hygienic food industry-approved construction provides full washdown protection. A user-friendly menu-driven control panel with step-by-step prompts, error and status displays, and batch pack counter, ensures ease of set-up.

“We have had fantastic support from Proseal throughout the project,” said Jared Simeti, General Manager Operations of Chefgood.

“The installation went flawlessly, and the machines have continued to perform without any issues. Just as important, we know the Proseal service technicians are always there to help if we do experience any problems,” he said.

Chefgood’s growth has led the company to develop a range of retail products, which was launched in May. It is now in the process of looking for a new site, having outgrown its current one.
