  2. Bakery slicing – the trend continues

    The trend towards pre-portioning of bakery products has been upwards for quite a while – consumer demands have made manufacturers think hard about their marketing, retail strategy and product packaging. Now, in 2014, we are seeing increasing numbers of single or small quantity sliced retail packs on the supermarket shelves. However, there is a recurring [...]

  3. Ultrasonic cheese cutting – ultrasonics and robotics combined

    Increasingly, cheese producers – or cutters and packers – are looking to reduce costs in an increasingly competitive market. What are the key target areas? Principally , we are talking about yield, giveaway, increased quality of cut product, output and less labour utilisation. Here at Newtech, we have addressed all these issues with a recent [...]

  4. Fancy cakes & cutting…

    The recession has hit most of us in some way over the last few years, but there is one facet of modern living which remains a constant whatever the financial climate – people love cake, and value it even more when times are tough!

  6. Pate slicing… perfect for ultrasonics!

    Whilst cutting raw meat doesn’t readily lend itself to ultrasonic cutting, this is not the case with pate cutting. Due to its soft, delicate and typically sticky composition, conventional blades produce poor results – poor cut face and a lot of blade residue will not please your sales and marketing people, or your maintenance team! [...]

  7. Know your product & how to cut it…

But what guidance can you expect to achieve from suppliers on now to successfully cut your product? Here’s Newtech’s quick and easy guide to what you need to know [...]

  8. The key to future-proofing your business?

    Food manufacturers are always looking to maximise their investment – getting the most out of your automated machinery has never been more important, as short production runs, ever-shorter contracts and new product development all become increasingly prevalent. So what do we mean by flexible automation? Well, fundamentally for us at Newtech it means supplying automated [...]

  9. Is automation right for you?

    Is automation right for you? Historically the benefits have not been widely appreciated by the food processing sector, compared to other manufacturing industries. Reasons often cited are a lack of in-house engineering expertise, short productions runs and regular product changeovers, and the volatility of contracts to supply. When you factor in a perception that automated [...]

  10. Newtech & Bedford Blues

    As a proud sponsor of Bedford Blues rugby, we are always looking for that little bit of extra exposure at home games. Check out this huge tackle from Northampton Saints’ Courtney Lawes at Goldington Road last Friday. We can only hope that of the 50,000 (and counting) viewers of the clip, at least one has [...]
