Feeding Systems for Wrapping

Automatic feeding equipment provides synchronized flight loading of products onto the wrapper infeed.

Light-Contact Feeding

A light-contact feeder employs servo drives to accumulate product with light backlog pressure and automatically meter incoming products into a flighted conveyor chain.

Non-Contact Feeding

Non-contact feeders are designed for delicate or sticky products and items that cannot be exposed to backlog pressure.

Group Feeding

Grouping feeders accept a random or intermittent supply of product and transforms it into a light-contact or non-contact accumulated backlog of product, suitable for metering to a wrapper infeed. Two, three, and four count per flight are possible.

On-Edge Cookie/Cracker Feeding

The on-edge cookie/cracker feeder feeds stacked cookies or crackers for on-edge wrapping.
