SynchroGroup has supplied to an important multinational company a semi-automatic line for loading and packaging biscuits of different shapes (round, square and rectangular) in slugs from 200 to 250 grams.
The supply consists on a double chain conveyor with rods on which cookies are manually loaded, a 90º transfer to introduce them into the Flow-Pack pusher´s conveyor and the Flow-wrapper itself.
The following innovations have been implemented in this project:
- Synchrofeed has developed a new 90 °transfer with tracking function of the wrapper chain (equipped with 3 servomotors) to obtain a very soft and gentle transfer of the slugs, avoiding sudden movements that may damage or even break fragile or sensitive cookies.
- Synchropack has introduced a new concept of “universal” side belts to accompany and hold the biscuits on edge position once introduced into the film tube. This solution, allows easy and simple format changes in the slug/bag length without needing to change the side belts.
