Multitec™ and Formax®
Transfer Conveyor

Transfer Conveyor

Transports sliced portions from the slicer to the packager for manually loading. Available with an upper reject conveyor to accept off weights from the slicer classifier.

Autoloading Solutions

Autoloading Solutions

Automatically transfer and load each portion into your packaging machine with complete confidence. Multitec’s patented technology makes the final correction to each row alignment just prior to the packager, so product placement is consistent and precise.

Overlapping Systems

Overlapping Systems

Overlap adjacent portion lanes or subsequent rows onto one another to create variety packs, sandwich setups, or other interesting portion presentations.

Inliner & Twinliner Stations

Inliner & Twinliner Stations

Splits single lanes into two separate lanes. Throughput capacity up to 100 portions per minute for the standard model or up to 150 portions per minute for the high-speed model.

Positioning Stations

Positioning Stations

High-speed camera technology detects and corrects deficiencies in portion position. Modules drag, turn, and line the portions as required. Portions can be rotated up to 180º. Ideal for high-speed packaging of cheese and deli meats.

Buffer Stations

Buffer Stations

Intelligent buffer stations provide for efficient production processes in high capacity processing and packaging plants in the food industry. They are specifically designed for continuous high-speed packaging of cheese and deli meats. The infeed and outfeed are continuously controlled via laser sensors to ensure a constant product flow. Often used when utilizing multiple slicers to feed a single packager.

Timing Stations

Timing Stations

Create a steady portion flow with the required accurate distance between each portion. Often used when feeding flow wrappers or tray conveyors.

 
CashinEDGE®
Accept/Reject Conveyor

Accept/Reject Conveyor

Transports sliced portions from the slicer to the packager for manual loading. Includes a classifier at the front end that is tied to the upstream checkweigher. Portions that are off weight are rejected to the upper conveyor where they can be manually corrected.

Load Assist Conveyor

Load Assist Conveyor

Takes sliced portions from the CashinEDGE slicer and transports to the roll stock packaging machine for manual loading. Single row of product flow from slicer is automatically split into two equal streams that are fed to either side of the slicer to facilitate loading at high rates of speed. Off weight portions determined by the upsteam check-weigher are fed to a third lane so that they can be manually corrected and loaded.

Autoloader

Autoloader

Automatically transfer and load each portion into your packaging machine with complete confidence. Can be configured to match your packager die set. Utilizes Allen-Bradley controls.

Three Track Flyte Diverter with Three Track Take Away Conveyor

Three Track Flyte Diverter with Three Track Take Away Conveyor

Typically used to feed a Curwood 618 packager. The system reads the weight signal from the upstream checkweigher and diverts the off weight portions from the stream of portions within specification. On-weight portions are evenly divided between two lanes of product feeding the packager.

 

Peripherals


 
SX and PowerMax Slicing Systems
Staging Conveyor

Staging Conveyor

Sits ahead of the slicer and acts as a buffering station. The operator places the product logs onto the staging conveyor when the slicer is slicing. The slicer lift tray will then automatically be fed product when it is ready to receive the next set of logs. Can be configured with an elevator lift to raise the product for improved ergonomics. 

 

 

Servo Card Dispenser

Servo Card Dispenser

Automatically places J-boards under the retail bacon drafts at high speeds. Card placement is servo controlled to ensure accurate and consistent performance. Can be configured with a single card chamber or with two chambers to accommodate A and B grade boards. Includes touchscreen control for easy set up and operation.

Honer

Honer

Sharpens the blade when it becomes dull and no longer slices well. Only removes the burr from the back of the blade without grinding away excess blade material, which extends overall blade life.

 
CashinEDGE®
Checkweigher

Checkweigher

Weighs each draft from the slicer and interfaces with the Add-A-Slice weighing system to ensure precise weight control throughput the production run. Weight signal is used by downstream conveying systems to accept or reject each draft based on the operator entered weight tolerances. Includes touchscreen control for easy setup and production data collection.

Servo Card Dispenser

Servo Card Dispenser

Automatically places J-boards under the retail bacon drafts at high speeds. Card placement is servo controlled to ensure accurate and consistent performance. Can be configured with a single card chamber or with two chambers to accommodate A and B grade boards. Includes touchscreen control for easy set up and operation.

Underleaver

Underleaver

Typically utilized with layout or institutional bacon slicing applications. The underleaver places individual sheets of paper under each set of bacon slices at speeds up to 120 sheets per minute. Servo driven for accuracy, adjustability, and repeatability.

Honer

Honer

Stand alone honer that can be used in place of the machine mounted honing device. Sharpens the blade when it becomes dull and no longer slices well. Only removes the burr from the back of the blade without grinding away excess blade materials, which extends overall blade life.
