Hinds-Bock, Seattle, Wash., debuted a family of vertical piston filling machines that are said to take up less valuable conveyor space than conventional filling Hinds-Bock vertical piston fillermachines.

The Hinds-Bock vertical 6P-04V filler automatically fills a wide variety of flowable or semi-flowable products, with or without particulates, such as sauces, dips, spreads and meat and fruit fillings. The 6P-04V dives for bottom-up filling and utilizes clean, accurate positive shut-off spouts with an adjustable blow-off feature.

Designed for high-speed accurate filling, the 6P-04V only takes up 18 inches of linear conveyor length.
