High-speed sauce pellet depositor for meal kits
The Hinds-Bock 4P-01 from Hinds-Bock, Seattle, Wash., is designed for high-speed depositing of sauce pellets for meal kits and depositing of sauce, condiments and fillings into thermoformed cavities of horizontal vacuum formers or pre-made cups.
It reaches speeds up to 5,700 portions per minute.
The 4P-01 utilizes a servo-driven orbital spout bridge that follows the packages or platens during the fill cycle for increased spout time. Positive shut off spouts are used for clean accurate filling and the filler can be cleaned-in-place or quickly disassembled for sanitizing.
State-of-the-art controls allow for the fill parameters to be automatically set by simply selecting the recipe or SKU in the operator interface.
