N/A Reliable operation
The Pack Feeder 4 portfolio can support high production volumes with belt speeds of up to 120 meters per minute. With their reliability and robustness, the feeders can be operated on a 24/7 basis even at high output levels. Thanks to the modular design, in combination with standardized interfaces, the feeders can be easily and rapidly integrated with machines in Syntegon’s wrapper portfolio such as the Pack 401 and Pack 201 HS.

To ensure quality packages, the Pack Feeder 4 offers consistent belt tensioning and easy photo eye adjustment. Active belt tracking and visual inspection of running belts are some of the optional features that increase the operating efficiency.

Maximum Uptime
In order to ensure quick product changeovers and minimal downtime, top and side guides on the feeders can be rapidly adjusted without tools. The gear-free belt drive offers reliable operation and the hinged side guides allow for easy product jam removal. This improves the overall efficiency and reduces the total cost of ownership.

Easy Cleaning
Easy access and cleaning were considered early on in the design of the feeders. The feeders incorporate crumb trays which can easily be removed for cleaning during production. All belt units, nose roller units and deck plates can easily and quickly be disassembled and removed without tools. The integration of wire ways in the frame eliminates a common source of contamination. All of these easy cleaning features reduce downtime and increase in efficiency.
