Heat and Control, Inc: Conveyor insures good visual presentation of hand-packed food

Heat and Control has developed the Progressive Pack Conveyor integrated with a highly-accurate Ishida weigher to provide packing flexibility during hand–packing operations. 
The conveyor uses any Ishida weigher to suit fresh, frozen or dry product applications. The weigher deposits each product into a diverting timing hopper centered over the Progressive Pack Conveyor.  The conveyor has 2 flighted center belts to accept product charges, and independent variable speed packing conveyors on each side.  Operators remove a product and arrange it in trays on the outer packing belts, which then carry the product trays to sealing equipment. Greatly reduces product giveaway and improves versatility of hand-packing operations.
