Jenton Packaging

Packaging machines have been at the heart of Jenton since 1968. Originally a distributor of overwrapping and bag making machines, The Jenton Group now designs and manufactures over 50% of the machines it sells from sites in Whitchurch (Hampshire) and Bedford.

The company has extensive experience in heat sealing technologies for a wide range of applications and industries and, since 2005 has developed ranges of equipment for the food packaging industry specialising in automation, disinfection and verification. Jenton were founder members of the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association in 1987 and have a position on the board.

Our Packaging Ranges

Banding Machines

Jenton’s banding machines are found in industries as diverse as cash handling, printing, food packaging and industrial goods. The principle of banding with 20 to 60mm wide paper and film bands is widely accepted as a minimal packaging technique - which can also maintain a secure pack, create a secure stack, be used as a label, provide tamper evidence, provide easy shelf ready packaging, easy shelf loading packaging and be used to create multipacks for all manner of reasons. Banding machines from Jenton can be smaller, bench top systems or fully automatic in line systems. Heat or ultrasonic seals are possible and the bands can be printed or plain – and now even plastic free.

Tray & Sandwich Pack Sealers

Jenton were delighted to acquire Soken Engineering Limited in 2022, and production of the Soken range of heat sealers for trays and for sandwich, wrap and salad packs has now been moved to a new facility in Whitchurch. Soken offer a wide range of heat sealers both for film lids and pre-coated board. Phase one machines are simple single pack bench-top systems – ideal for restaurants and small local operations. As production increases, Soken shuttle type sealers can seal multiple packs at once and then faster production can be achieved with the automatic in line systems. We make all the machines in-house and have CNC machines for manufacturing of tools to suit customer trays or packs. Made in UK = faster turnaround for tooling!

Packaging Automation

Ariana became part of the Jenton Group in 2005. Pioneers in the automation of thermoformed lines in the 1980s, Ariana designs for pad placing machines, convergers, seal testers and automatic portioning of ground meat were the first to market for all of those applications. The current product range include the fast and efficient (and short!) BCS convergers, high speed product stackers, multi head seal testers and pad placers for food trays. All JentonAriana equipment is in wash down food grade stainless steel with excellent easy-to-use software – all written in-house.

Jenact UV Disinfection

Jenton, via its JenAct brand design and manufacture UV disinfection systems for air and surfaces. Because of our links to the packaging industry, many of JenAct sales are within that market. JenAct GRU-V Jet™ systems are in use in food production halls and JenAct UV disinfection conveyors are used for transfer of packaging and actual packs from low care into high care in food packaging environments. JenAct have 12 granted patents in the generation of UV for multiple applications including disinfection of packaging prior to filling – or refilling, such as systems installed in The Body Shop stores as long ago as the 1990s. Systems have also been installed in medical applications as well as many Covid-19 related installations in schools, surgeries, clinics, gyms etc.

Label and Data Verification

Dimaco Limited became part of the Jenton Group in 2015. JentonDimaco are the market leaders in data driven label verification for food packaging in the UK. As automation of food packaging lines becomes faster and more widespread, it becomes more and more important to check that everything printed on the label(s) is not only printed legibly but is also correct – from weights to cooking times etc. JentonDimaco’s class leading OCR software (all bespoke and written in-house) combines with exceptional data management to allow customers to not only be sure that printed data is the correct data but to have full visibility and reporting on the production lines that our equipment is installed on.
