Benchmark's Star Wheel offers automatic loading of round products with defined edges. The leading product is continuously stripped from a single lane of backlogged product with a rotating, "toothed", disk. The disk then loads the product directly into the flights of a horizontal wrapper at speeds up to 500 pieces per minute. These machines are well suited to the cracker industry, or any other food industry specializing in round packaging.
Designed to your specific product requirements, Benchmark's Shuttle Feeder delivers automatic loading of flat, even product for precise, continuous motion loading of vertically stacked product.
