Our fully automatic counting machines have been developed for the precise counting of lumpy goods. Various models are available for different applications, e.g. 3- or 6‑lane counting machines for buckets or carton packs or as counting unit for dosing the products for net sealing, flow wrapping or single bag machines.

Gekupack® has developed counting machines for various product areas. The products are conveyed via vibratory chutes or, where the sensitivity of the product does not allow the use of vibratory chutes, via conveyor belts or turntable units. All machines are equipped with freely programmable controls. The products are fed into the machine via an infeed and then reliably separated by vibration in the 3 or 6 parallel conveyor lanes. The purpose of the two chutes arranged one behind the other is to separate the products. The lower chute runs faster than the other. Thus, the products are separated and can be counted reliably.
The counting is done by means of reflex light sensors. As soon as the set number of pieces has been reached, the filling process is stopped by the activated retaining flaps and the next count is started. The machine can be combined with commercially available automatic closing machines such as net sealing machines or tubular and individual bag machines.
Our counting machines have been specially developed for counting chunky goods. Frequent examples of applications are bakery and confectionery products, such as rolls, wrapped chocolate balls or chocolate eggs, or even chocolate talers and other flat or round, chunky products. Furthermore, the optical counting machines are used for counting fat balls. In addition, many other product examples are conceivable.
The counting machines are used either as an upstream unit for counting products for net or tubular or single bag machines, but can also be equipped with a device for automatic or semi-automatic pail and carton filling and sealing systems.
