The line consists of two counting machines, type TQI-4/100 and a vertical catoning machine with special index conveyor. Each counter counts the specific amount of capsules of the mix and are discharged into a special indexing conveyor above the Senzani cartoner. The indexing conveyor enables the system to have a shift register so that there is time to set up a carton if the counted, discharged products are OK. If one the counters is not ready a carton will not be erected.
A bucket elevator with a rubber block chain feeds the hoppers of the counters. This setup ensures stable feeding of the counters and the counting/packaging can continue for a certain time if there is no supply of new capsules.
Cremer supplied the complete line with the counters and the cartoning machine.
The counting machines are fast, precise and easy to clean which is especially important for the milk capsules.
