Automatic feeding equipment provides synchronized flight loading of products onto the wrapper infeed.
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 feeders are designed for delicate or sticky products and items that cannot be exposed to backlog pressure.
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.
