The GKV 4012 was developed to increase the degree of automation of packaging lines and thus work towards competitive production despite increasing personnel expenses. The placer was developed using fat balls as an example, which are portioned by the line into units of 4 (2 × 2), 6 (2 × 3) or 8 (2 × 4) as required and placed in an infeed conveyor. The products can also be placed in individual trays. The trays can be placed automatically by an optional tray dispenser on the chain conveyor. The high performance of the placement machine represents another significant step towards unmanned production and means that short amortisation times can be expected.
The product is fed via a belt conveyor that fills the left or right dust hopper depending on the material requirement. The dumplings are then separated by integrated counting machines and discharged above the tray. The machine programmes are individually created and tailored to your needs, so that special requests can also be realised.
Due to the different material properties of the tray packs (e.g. polystyrene, cardboard, hard paper, etc.), separate programmes must be installed for each tray type and pack size.
The GKV 4012 is designed for automatic portioning and placing of fat balls in packs of 4, 6 or 8. Depending on the requirements, the dumplings can also be placed in trays.
Although the laying machine was developed using fat balls as an example, it can also be used for packaging in other product segments. Depending on the requirements of the product, mechanical, pneumatic, electrical and control adjustments can be made so that the machine is also suitable for more sensitive products.
