The beauty of this solution is your main packing lines can continue to run whilst a batch mixing operation continues offline. That allows stock to be built up for short run SKUs which have been premixed saving time and energy and can be decanted straight into a repacking line. It also allows packing on the more basic CCW multihead weighers and with accuracies as tight as +/- 1% been achieved by our clients. It is the ideal solution to remove short runs.
The overall objective is to ensure that products is inflight and feeds all of the weighers on demand with product that they require. The principle is simple in that it operates like a smart traffic light system keeping product moving with no spillage and all weighers satisfied with products to maximise line throughput.

For the infeed into the freezer we can supply a 2-stage solution utilizing a vibratory unloading conveyor with a scarfed discharge and a vibratory inspection conveyor orientated at 90 degrees which then feeds into the freezer. This is our optimum solution for feeding products into spiral freezers and is proven to deliver return on investment typically with 8 – 16 weeks.
By utilising a vibratory conveyor in a continuous frying set-up, it is essential that metered product is delivered to the fryer to have the ultimate balance of in and out and an accurate fry time. This is less essential in batch frying, however, to optimise efficiency a vibratory conveyor can deliver a regulated batch for the 3/4-minute fry cycle.
