Packer for baked goods
Weighpack’s high-speed packaging solution for lightweight baked goods includes a 14-head Primo weigher and dual VS horizontal baggers.
To reach required speeds product travel time between the scale and bagger has been dramatically reduced. Product spiraling has been eliminated with individual lane chutes, and a catch box system allows the product to be double staged—increasing production rates by 40%, and cycling at more than 60 bags per minute of pita chips in increments of 200 grams. The VS bagger automatically positions a pre-made wicketed bag, opens it and waits for product. After loading, the VS Bagger side shifts the bag to the sealer, positions a new bag and repeats the cycle.
