The Product Transfer Shuttle from Heat and Control delivers weighed food portions from an Ishida multi-head weigher to multiple fill positions on intermittent motion packaging equipment, including horizontal thermoformers and tray/cartoning lines. The unit is suitable for use with meat, poultry, seafood and cheese. Changeable parts convert the shuttle to handle different pocket configurations for different package sizes, while servo motor, stepper motor or pneumatic drive options suit various applications and budgets. No-tools removal of product contact parts simplifies changeover and cleaning, according to the company.
