Australia-based Weston Milling has invested EUR6m ($8m) to install bag packaging systems from Chronos BTH, as part of a programme to upgrade its five mills in Australia and three in New Zealand.
Chronos BTH will initially deliver two out of eight Chrono-Bag OML BF Series open-mouth bagging lines to Weston Milling’s flour mills, in Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand, under the deal.
The project will include installation of OML-1030 BF single spout lines, OML-2060 BF dual spout lines and OML-3090 BF triple spout lines at Weston’s units.
Chronos BTH will also supply palletisers and stretch hooders to Weston Milling under the project.
The CHRONO-FILL OML 600 bagging system is a compact fully automatic packaging system designed for bagging all kinds of powders or granules into open-mouth bags. The system is universal usable for all common types of open-mouth bags including gusseted and pinch-bottom bags with bag filling weights of 5 up to 50 kg.
