PAF: Biscuit Pile Automatic Feeder

The horizontal loading, and feeding units are installed at the end of the production lines. Their function is to group into piles products in flat position such as biscuits, crackers, toast bread, etc. and to transfer these piles into the infeed conveyor of a flow-pack machine. This system allows selecting the height of the pile, from a single unit up to its maximum stable height and to transfer these piles on to the infeed conveyor of a flow-pack machine. It is possible to compensate any possible product thickness variation while the system is in operation. The modular construction of the horizontal feeder allows us to supply it in different configurations, depending on the required performance and the characteristics of the products to be handled.

Four axis horizontal feeding unit

The Four-Axis Horizontal Feeding Unit is powered by 4 servomotors and is the top-of-the-range. It gives the maximum flexibility in arranging the product piles in the configurations required, as well as allowing the pile height to be adjusted during the machine operation. Machine operation is in two main steps, with the product groups fist being pre-piled in an intermediate station, before being transferred into the infeed of the flow-wrapping machine. The two-stage sequence gives gentle product handling and avoids any risk of damaging the product.
Two axis horizontal feeding unit

The Two-Axis Horizontal Feeding Unit is powered by 2 servomotors and also allows the product pile height to be adjusted during the machine operation. The loading and feeding operations are carried out in a single movement, with the piles being transferred directly from the incoming lanes and placed into the infeed of the flow-wrapping machine.
