Frequently Asked Questions

What does Brillopak do?
Brillopak designs and manufactures automated end of line solutions including pick and place machines, palletisers, destackers, and denesters.
Why is automation better than manual labour?
Automation is better than manual labour because:

  • It is more reliable and efficient
  • It is a cost effective long-term solution
  • It can be controlled by management to adjust speed and other requirements
  • It complies with health and safety standards, reducing the possibility of litigation
Where to start with automation?
  1. Examine your current processes – identify which are inefficient and require improvement
  2. Review budget, capital expenditure (capex), and any upcoming applicable grants
  3. Consider your specification, including Stock Keeping Units (skus), products and possible future changes
How do I know that what I buy today will meet the requirement tomorrow?
Short answer  – you don’t; it is impossible to guarantee this. However, you can certainly maximise the certainty that what you buy will work by ensuring that what you specify has built in flexibility to handle packing of items that you don’t yet know you need to pack.
It looks like you mostly supply machinery to the food industry. Do you work with any other industries?
Yes, absolutely! Historically, our machines have been sold predominantly within the food industry but, in actuality, our machines are versatile and can be used in any industry.

Experience Across Industries

Since 1999, our automated packing and palletising machines and systems have been used across a range of industries, for a variety of applications. This experience is invaluable, as we continue to design and manufacture flexible solutions, to meet the dynamic challenges faced today and into the future. Over recent years, we have developed a particular expertise in the following Specialist Sectors: Fresh Produce, Meat, Poultry and Fish and Ready Meals.

Pick and place automation fruit packing.

Fresh Produce – Fruit & Vegetable

The fresh produce sector is driven by challenging performance levels, frequent line changeovers and continuous change in product formats and layer patterns.

The focus on green packaging alternatives, together with the need for gentle handling of often delicate products, emphasises the need for versatility in automation systems. Brillopak aims to continue to raise the performance bar in this sector, through the development of new and innovative robotic packing and vision systems that reduce labour cost and increase profit.
