ELCAT’s conveyor loaders are engineered to handle a diverse range of sliced foods, including bacon, cold cuts, cheese slices, tortillas, liver portions, steaks, and many others.

Designed to meet specific capacity needs, ELCAT’s loaders seamlessly integrate with the layout of the customer’s premises and can be tailored to accommodate all slicers and thermoforming machines on the market.

ELCAT’s loaders, upon receiving portions from slicers, can automatically re-arrange them into the precise pattern requested by the thermoforming machine, thanks to diverting, aligning, and accelerating modules.

Irrespective of the method of portion delivery, specialized modules enable rotation, overlapping, or shaving of portions to optimize their presentation in trays.

Featuring a modular design, these loaders effortlessly incorporate future enhancements, thus maximizing efficiency.

Our design emphasizes easy access to the packaging machine, minimizing downtime, and ensuring thorough sanitation of every part of the equipment.
