  • FMC Biopolymer

    FMC Biopolymer’s existing facility is used to manufacture Avicel PH, an excipient ingredient for the food and pharmaceutical industries. There had a box and drum packaging line which was obsolete and was replaced with the MCR new bag in box line and drum line.  The project was intended to retrofit the existing control system with one that will incorporate existing conveyors and filling lines and manage communication between the new and existing elements. The scope of the project was to design, construct, commission and qualify the new box and drum filling line comprising of a box erector, a liner inserter, bag decuffer and sealer (combined unit) and a box taper, to facilitate the filling and packaging of Avicel, in accordance with GMP standards and procedures. This was a very challenging project where two bag insertion was used for longer shelf life for FMC customers. This was a very successful project and it has opened more places in the market  for FMC customers.

  • Classified Meat Company

    MCR Automation has worked extensively in the automation and building construction of a classified meat company’s burger line handling system.

    The MCR system was designed to transport stretch wrapper palletised of frozen burgers in -25 degrees environment.

    Fully stretch wrapped pallets are loaded on the first in feed section in the cold room. Guides are fitted on the conveyor to make sure forklift operators load the pallet in correctly position on the chains. The conveyor then automatic accumulates pallet loads up to the first door. A total of three pallet can accumulate inside the cold room. In feed section is fitted with fork lift protection.

    Then in the airlock between the two doors there will be another pallet conveyor zone. This will allow one pallet load to accumulate between the two doors. This will be an interlocked door system where only one door can be opened at one time. This will keep the cold room sealed at all time to prevent energy loss. The chain conveyor in this zone is fitted with an additional drive to shuttle the conveyor left and right to close the gap on transfer of the pallet load between the door gaps.

    Then on the final unloading zone near the mezzanine floor this will allow pallet loads to transport through the two doors and accumulate for unloading. This will be a special design option to allow the chain to lift and lower the pallet load onto fixed mezzanine so electrical pallet jack can remove pallet. This area will be fitted with a light barrier and safety fencing. Each time a pallet is unloaded the system will mute, then the operator will remove the pallet. Once the pallet is remove the light barrier activates again and the system start accepting another pallet. The electrical panel and control system was placed outside the Cold Room area. Control Panel was fitted with touchscreen system for automatic and manual jog system. Option included for Automatic reverse mode.


  • Nutrition Supplies

    Nutrition Supply Services project to package various final products (Vitamins, Minerals, Nucleotides, Amino Acids and PUFA’s) into three specific box sizes.

    The MCR Automation new packaging line consist of three packaging specific areas. The high containment packaging area, consisting of a liner inserter, decuffer sealer, box taper, labeller and transfer conveyors. An ATEX rated product filling suite within the high containment area, containing the product filling equipment. The secondary containment area that will house box erection and finished product pallitising operations.

    External to the secondary high containment area will be the box line consumables assembly area and a finished product holding area as per details in sketch above.

    MCR Automation are using barcode tracking technology to track fully packed boxes to palletising robots to avoid any product mixing. The box packaging line will operate as a standalone facility as regards line operations; the filler will however be interlocked to the building environmental controls such that it will only operate when the environmental controls are operational.

    Nutrition Supply Services production operators will transfer finished product in 1.5 M/T Tote Bins from the facilities manufacturing area into the box line packaging area.  Here the totes will be loaded onto a discharge system located above the box filling equipment, from where they will be filled into either of the three box sizes to the required different finished product weights for that specific box.
