PRLog - June 14, 2012 - Kraft commissioned CKF as its project partner to design an automated re-circulating distribution system, located in three production areas and over two floors; CKF had previously developed and completed a robot palletising solution for Kraft Sheffield, the collaboration providing immediate benefits to its manufacturing capability.
“This project required an innovative approach and our Engineering team utilised the very latest robotic, vision and automated control technologies,”
Despite the economic downturn, CKF has increased its turnover by 177% over the past four years as manufacturers increasingly turn to automation to improve output and reduce costs. The automated and robotic solutions specialist now employs 40 engineers at its Gloucestershire headquarters.
“The business had been pleased with CKF’s achievements in Sheffield and had been particularly impressed with the company ethos as a solutions provider,” adds David Moreton, BD&E Project Manager, Kraft Foods UK. “Significant benefits have been realised by the success of this latest project.”
