Golden Flake: New vf/f/s for potato chip bagging

Printed rollstock unwinds from the back of one of Golden Flake's new vf/f/s machines from Heat and Control. After a knife cuts between the seal area, the filled bag discharges at the bottom of the machine.

At this point, a lane-changing collator guides smaller bags of potato chips between two finger-like devices that divert a predetermined number of bags to the left, then right side of an inclined belt conveyor to a manual case-packing station.
