Developed in partnership with filler manufacturer Spee-Dee, the latest configuration is a trimmed down yet still-customizable iteration of Cremer’s original high speed HQS 1250 gummy counter, which was released last year.
Cremer’s smaller-scale HQS 1250 offers a more affordable investment for companies looking to enter the gummy market, along with a more compact footprint to save valuable production floor space. The 12-lane counter can precisely apportion gummies of all shapes and sizes to a downstream Spee-Dee bottle filler. With an average output of 70 bottles/min on a 60-count gummy product, the HQS 1250 is ideal for a wide variety of gummies including typical sanded or sugared formulations.
Importantly, the HQS 1250 effectively alleviates two common obstacles that gummy manufacturers and co-packers routinely face: accurate counting and filling at medium-to-high speeds. Traditional multi-head scales are not 100% accurate when filling by weight, and gummies tend to clog when filled into a small bottleneck opening. The HQS 1250 seamlessly streams gummies without blocking in the bottle neck while also ensuring accurate counts at high speeds.
Cremer’s HQS 1250 Compact Counting & Dispensing Machine also brings benefits that distinguish it from competing counting solutions. For instance, its seamless integration with Spee-Dee allows for high-speed counting and filling with no clogs or jams, and offers industry-leading speed and accuracy and per-product customization. In addition, the HQS 1250 is delivered pre-assembled with all wires quick-locked for faster installation, and allows for quick, toolless changeover. The HQS 1250 counter is compact in size and, to preserve precious production floorspace, can be placed directly atop the Spee-Dee filler for bottling applications or a f/f/s pouching machine for bagging applications.
