Furman Foods: Tray packing, stacking and wrapping

At this canner of tomatoes, tomato sauces, canned beans and related products, labeled cans are mechanically grouped in continuous motion in four or six lanes to yield 3x4- (shown) or 4x6-count trays, respectively.

The trays are stacked two-high as 5 trays/layer. For stacking, a layer of five trays is lifted by metal fingers from opposite sides of the conveyor until the bottom layer accumulates. Trays are film-wrapped in continuously moving trays. The entire system was supplied by Kisters Kayat.
