Simplify hand packing
September 1, 2011
Traditional hand-packing operations sacrifice weighing accuracy for good visual presentation. Now, to reduce product giveaway costs and increase versatility, Heat and Control has developed a Progressive Pack Conveyor integrated with a highly-accurate Ishida weigher for refrigerated or frozen applications. The Ishida weigher deposits each product charge into a diverting timing hopper centered over the Progressive Pack Conveyor. The conveyor has two flighted center belts to accept product charges, and independent variable speed packing conveyors on each side. Operators remove a product charge from the center flighted belt and arrange it in trays on the outer packing belts, which then carry the product trays to sealing equipment.
