Row feeding

The co. offers a row-distribution system that reportedly automatically feeds up to several thousand products per minute to various individual wrapping machines. For nutrition bars, soft cakes and other products, the system includes row-management conveyors designed with tool-less belts for cleanup ease, with each wrapper module encompassing product turning, light-contact automatic feeders and flowrappers said to be capable of running at speeds to 600 ppm. The system uses Allen-Bradley servo motors and drive controllers combined with a ControlLogix 5000 Series PLC, the co. says.
