Their existing all-in-one system could not maintain consistent shrink wrapping quality and only produced 1-2 pies per minute. They had difficulty receiving consistently good seals and appealing packages.

The customer is a small town bakery with a rapidly expanding market. They were looking for a solution that would meet the increased production demand, consistently deliver a high quality package, and was easy to operate.
