Precision Timed Hand Pack with Semi-Automated Indexing Feeds Labelers and Metal Detectors with Room to Grow
Multi-Conveyor recently built multiple sanitary, precision timed, semi-automatic hand pack conveyor lines that ultimately feed labelers and metal detection systems.
Six straight running plastic belt conveyors could allow a customer supplied tray denesting machine to dispense single lane empty plastic food trays onto an indexing conveyor where operators manually fill. Sensors are provided for tray positioning for manual and alternate automatic tray filling.
The fully welded sanitary wash down constructed system reportedly includes toolless removable stainless-steel shelving for product storage containers that are easily positioned for operators to slide bulk food directly into clam-shell style trays for manual lid closure. Trays then convey to a labeler infeed using a nose bar transfer, then move to a reduced speed metal detector conveyor.
Custom Delrin guard plates were provided for additional operator safety yet allows internal access for cleaning. Other features incorporated with these systems include manual belt lifts, slotted clean out holes for cleaning and maintenance, and manually adjustable guiderails with pre-set positions for specific width openings and product changeover.
