Concerned About Food Safety? Spee-Dee® Has A Solution. //

Spee-Dee’s Sanitary Servo Drive Auger Filler’s product contact parts are constructed from corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain stainless steel. Plus, we’ve created a design that eliminates threads and fasteners from areas in contact with food – eliminating cracks and crevices that can result in product contamination. You’ll be impressed with the speed and ease with which product cleaning and changeover operations are completed.

Spee-Dee will help you with your most challenging dry product filling requirements. Call us today!

Fill By Weight And Volume With AVS //

Spee-Dee’s Advanced Volumetric System (AVS) allows your company to decrease target weights in the filling process (and profit from improved accuracy rates) because the system automatically adjusts to shifts in product density.  Its compact design requires a fraction of the space demanded by a combination scale, while its innovative construction enables product changeovers to be efficiently completed within minutes.

 

Contact Spee-Dee today to learn how the innovative AVS will improve the profitability of your facility!

Spee-Dee Slashes Customer’s Overhead Expense //

Recently, Spee-Dee recommended to a customer a more productive method to fill extruded snack foods.  In this process, we installed a high performing Spee-Dee servo cup filler in place of a traditional scale system.  In addition to featuring a significantly lower price tag, the Spee-Dee servo solution utilizes less production space, simplifies product changeover and reduces ongoing system maintenance expense.

Spee-Dee Repeats Leadership Award //

Packaging World magazine launched an industry-based program, The Leadership in Packaging Award, back in January of 2010 to recognize excellent business leaders in the packaging machinery and material and service suppliers industry. Among the thousands of votes that were tallied in the online competition this year, participants, which included both end users and industry peers, had the opportunity to vote for their favorite manufacturer in many different categories. Of all the votes that were casted, we are proud to announce Spee-Dee as the 2011 category leader for Filling for Dry Products, Capping and Induction Sealing. Spee-Dee won this award last year as well, proving that Spee-Dee is a consistent leader in the packaging industry.

Pack Expo 2011 successfully completed //

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Pack Expo Las Vegas show a success.  We especially want to thank all of the visitors who came by our booth and all of our packaging partners who recommended Spee-Dee to their visitors.

For those reading this that weren’t able to make it to the show, or didn’t get a chance to stop by our booth (we know, it’s a HUGE show!) here’s what you missed:

The Fillers
Spee-Dee had several machines on display. The main attractions this year were our model 3600 Auger Filler equipped with our innovative split hopper, and our Quad(4-lane) auger filler. Spee-Dee also had on hand a model 3600 Auger Filler equipped with a horizontal infeed screw, a CB6S volumetric cup filler capable of speeds of 130 fills per minute, the economical CHE cup filler, and an example of our servo conversion kit. For more information about the machines we had at the show check out our Pack Expo preview blogs!

The Lecture
Spee-Dee had the honor of joining hundreds of other packaging professionals in hearing a lecture by Retired General Colin Powell. General Powell spoke about leadership, buiding up the people you work with, improving your team, and even took some time out at the end for a question and answer session (he will NOT be running for president).

The Rest of the Show
With over 1,500 exhibitors, Pack Expo Las Vegas is one of the largest packaging industry trade shows in the world. Spee-Dee was privilliged to have our fillers displayed in several other exhibitors’ booths. Cup fillers were interfaced with equipment in the Bosch, Matrix, and Sealstrip booths, and our model 3600 auger filler was displayed in the TNA booth.
