Palletizing up to 4ꯠ cans/min, manufacturer Busse (Randolph, WI) is calling The Viper 4004 the fastest can palletizer in the world. It uses the air-assisted Pattern Rite(TM) bed system, which combines air-jet technology with multiple infeed belts to lift and guide containers through lanes and into position for palletizing.
Fogg Fillers' (Holland, MI) Quick-Change Valve is designed to solve labor-intensive removal and cleaning of valves in gravity liquid fillers. The patent-pending system uses external clips that easily disconnect from outside of the bowl, eliminating the need to reach inside the filler bowl and re-sanitize it.
