Autosmart Make Smart Choice With YPS Shrink Wrapper!

Yorkshire Packaging Systems Ltd are delighted to announce their installation of an inline sleeve wrapper and shrink tunnel into the Lichfield-based factory of Autosmart International Ltd.

Autosmart Make Smart Choice With YPS Shrink Wrapper!

Autosmart are the UK and Ireland’s largest manufacturer and distributor of vehicle and food processing cleaning products. With almost 40 years of experience, the company have unrivalled knowledge and expertise in the specialised cleaning requirements of these industries. With Autosmart, no matter what you clean, or how often you clean it, they will have the perfect solution to meet your needs.

Many of Autosmart’s products are aerosols, which are shrink wrapped for transit purposes. When the company’s existing line became too unreliable for production demands, the decision was made to invest in new equipment. The nature of the product necessitated some very specific features be incorporated into the machinery to comply with BAMA regulations for aerosol specifications. With years of experience shrink wrapping aerosol products, Yorkshire Packaging Systems were the ideal supplier.

The equipment provided to Autosmart International was an inline sleeve wrapper and tunnel, specially modified with pneumatic air motor in case of power cuts, counting in and counting out system to ensure all products are always evacuated from the tunnel and a back up sensor at the tunnel exit. Furthermore, there were some constraints with the warehouse layout so YPS shortened the whole line to fit the required footprint and accommodated the existing CO2 flooding system that Autosmart already had in place.

Since the installation earlier this year, the cleaning product specialists have now achieved complete peace of mind for their packaging operation due to the reliability afforded by the new shrink wrapping line.

Nick Davison, Works Engineer at Autosmart International Ltd says ‘YPS have really impressed us with the attention to detail they showed when it came to our requirements. The solution they provided has more than met our needs.’

Glyn Johnson, YPS M.D. continues ‘I really enjoyed working with Autosmart on this project. They are a great business that focus on delivering only the best for their customers. I’m glad we could do the same for them.’
