THE PLACEPACKER

flexible and reliable packaging

The Place Packer takes a full flow of product directly from a continuous cooling tunnel or supply conveyor, orienting individual products, indexing, collating and placing stacks of predetermined counts of products into a plastic or paper tray. Various types of cookies can be processed including wire-cut, rotary molded, enrobed, sandwiched items, and much more.

FEATURED SECTIONS

INFEED SECTION

A special endless conveyor belt with many features to unscramble, receive the product, place it into lanes, accumulate the product appropriately and synchronize it into the Rotodex Indexing device to be registered and prepared for other functions in the machine. Products can be aligned and spaced as required with easy changeover of custom made parts.

Stacking and Collator Sections

Once the cookies leave the Rotodex indexing device, they are conveyed into the Vacuum pick-up station. This station utilizes a Vacuum manifold bar to pick up complete rows of cookies from the infeed conveyor and deliver them into the collator station. The collator stages cookies in a stack formation per a pre-determined stack count. Once the proper number of cookies are stacked, the collator bottom section is hinged open to dump the cookies into the trays below.

Delivery Section

Delivery of the filled trays is presented to the downstream conveyors for further processing. A special conveyor is provided with cleated conveyor belting. These cleats position the tray in relationship to the collator lane position. This conveyor is Servo controlled and positioned underneath the collator section. It runs in an intermittent fashion indexing the proper number of trays per each machine cycle. The unfilled trays can be delivered to another flighted conveyor through an automatic denester.

our main features

Tray Cushion

Servo controlled dampening system used to minimize cookie bounce during the dump cycle. The tray is lifted at a certain time and speed just prior to receiving the cookie slug at dump. The cushion lift height is adjustable from the HMI.

Scalability on Conveyors

Allows ancillary devices and tray conveyors to be enabled or disabled. The system allows the user to start the conveyor, monitor the belt speed, and control the belt pitch of each conveyor.

High-Tech Control Systems

Fully integrated operator interface, machine timing and control system package for recipe management, maintenance, diagnostics (SCADA), and servo settings. Pivoting touch screen panel to allow easy operator control access from either side of machine.

Sanitary Design

Our latest improvements in sanitation offer a sanitary and easy to maintain system for the most hygienic operation. Stainless steel, titanium, and anodized aluminum construction. This latest design offers minimized plate to plate contact, non-tube penetration for device mounting and welded stand-offs for wires and hoses for an easy clean/stay clean operation.

Quick Changeover

Easily accomplished with change parts in 20-25 minutes. The system has the ability to automatically load a wide variety of additional configurations with change parts.

Easy Transfer

The tray and product conveyors are both on a declined angle to create the maximum parameters for efficient transfer of the biscuits into the tray cells.

Flexibility

Our system is adaptable for products with different sizes and diameters. Any style and size of cookie you can think of, including wire cut, die cut, rotary molded, enrobed, sandwiched items, and much more!

EXCLUSIVE STACKING COLLATION

Electronically control the in-feed rate to the desired cell count. Eliminates the need for a gear change part when the cell-count changes.

Denester

The empty trays are automatically denested from a magazine and placed into a flighted transfer conveyor.

Tray Laning Conveyor

Directs the empty trays from the denester to the lugged indexing conveyor.

Servo Controlled Motion

The servo control system insures that the timing of the in-feed row of biscuits matches the correct tray position. When the correct tray cell count is obtained, the tray conveyor cycles a new row of empty trays into position.

Easy Mobility

The system is mobile for effective removal and re-installation and to allow a temporary hand pack system to be installed in-line.

Reject System

Clears machine of product if a jam occurs without stopping flow of incoming product.

Automatic Belt Tracking

For the endless, quick change belt for the infeed section and secondary feed section.

Automatic Alignment Device

This device moves the infeed guides to align with incoming cookie pattern.

Central Lubrication

Provides automatic lubrication to all lubrication points simultaneously using multiple zone distribution blocks.

Simple Process

Provides smooth, high speed and easy-to-care-for operation.

Easy Access

Custom platform utilized for operator access to monitor the in-feed section
