Cross and Morse has used design-engineering software in the refurbishment of an Aasted moulding plant for a major biscuit manufacturer

The software, which enables Cross and Morse’s drawing office to perfect its designs before building them, allowed the company to install a replacement chocolate moulding chain into an Aasted moulding plant.

With the new chain, the efficiency of the plant has been raised to 96 per cent.

Other work done to overhaul the equipment was to replace sprockets, shafts and gearboxes, and the project was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.

Cross and Morse conducted a thorough survey of the plant before embarking on the refurbishment.

The 3D CAD design software allowed the company to create precise drawings to enable its workshop to machine the blocks that carry the trays on the biscuit manufacturer’s production line.
