The contract was initially for six double lane SM 5418 slicers. Then, to achieve the planned capacity expansion more effectively and faster the order was increased and a further two machines added. The customer from the Baltic States who has been working efficiently with six double lane Salmco SM 5418 slicers for several years will receive the additional new eight machines at the end of October.In close cooperation between Salmco and their customer the machines were modified so that they can be integrated seamlessly into the company’s sophisticated salmon processing. Adjustments were made to optimise automatic picking and packing and vacuum packaging and thereby significantly increase profitability. Salmco increased its qualified staff to ensure that despite full order books the eight machines can all be fitted in one go in September and October. If everything goes according to plan they will be installed and ready for operation at the beginning of November 2011.
