Better seaming skills safeguard product quality for Orkla
Metal packaging offers unique conserving properties – but the quality stands or falls based on the seaming.
That’s something that the team at Orkla in Kungshamn, Sweden, is well aware of, which is why they have been using Glud & Marstrand’s Seaming School.
“We wanted to raise the skills of our staff who are responsible for inspecting the seams (CCP) on the line, but we also chose to allow operators and managers to participate,” explains Quality and Environment Manager Agneta Stenberg. “All staff need to have the same level of skills so that they can communicate with one another. That way, we can maintain consistent quality.”
The Seaming School was recommended to Agneta Stenberg by a number of employees who had previously attended one of Glud & Marstrand’s courses.
“We expected to have a good discussion about procedures and for the training to cover practical examples and exercises to ensure that participants retained their new knowledge – and we were by no means disappointed,” she says. And continues “We’d be perfectly happy to send other staff on the course,” concludes Agneta.
