MF TECNO (Croatia) - Packaging system for cereals: Conveyor belt, multi-head weigher, VFFS packaging machine, and case packer.
This project we designed and manufactured for our customer in Croatia was a complete system for packaging Cereals.
It is a complete solution for packing cereals and polenta in 1 Kg bags, at high production levels.
To maintain high speed in the packing phase we decided to include a packaging machine with continuous motion.
Weighing and Conveying system:
We start with a big bag unloading device which leads the product to a vibrating channel. From there the product enters the belt conveyor that feeds the multi-head weighing machine.
The multi-head weighing system is the perfect solution for small bags and fast production, considering its speed and high precision.
The Vertical packaging machine our customer chose for this project was the MF 52 SPEEDY.
The MF 52 Speedy, is a vertical form fill and seal machine that can pack up to 4800 bags per minute, thanks to the continuous motion.
After the bags are filled, they pass through a metal detector. This is a necessary step, considering we are talking about a food product it is very important not to have any metal residuals inside the bags.
Bag transporting and Case Packing Machine:
Our customer decided to opt for a double choice after the packing machine. The bags can go towards the case packing machine or in a turntable, to be later collected by an operator.
Our case packing machine creates American boxes, loading from the top.
