The patties drop into a pivot pan conveyor that constantly swings back and forth to deliver patties evenly to all four weigh bucket infeed conveyors. Each weigh bucket has its own load cell. When bucket number one reaches the target weight whether 5 or 10 lb the scales programmable logic controller (PLC) knows that the bucket has the correct amount ready and waiting. The baggers were tailored to meet specifications including empty/low bag sensors and a curved chute to allow for a more gentle bagging process.
