At Forpak we are dedicated to providing innovative food packaging solutions for the baked goods, meat, and pizza industries. For over 25 years, we’ve worked with OEMs and other customers to provide them the equipment they need, including custom designs that can be easily integrated into existing facilities.
Whether you need a high-powered conveyor system, a laning and sorting operation, or stacking equipment, Forpak can provide a unique, intelligent design meeting FDA and USDA standards for sanitation and food safety. While every operation in a packing facility is integral to the process, we believe that stacking technology is one of the most important types of food production equipment in production lines today.
Stacking systems work to count and stack products into vertical units that are then moved down the line smoothly and in compact portions. This operation is critical for a majority of food packaging techniques because it provides both exact inventory records and the compacting of multiple items into a single unit, streamlining the conveyor process and readying the product for packaging.
Forpak stackers models are ideal for packing frozen items such as meat patties and baked goods. Two of our most beneficial stackers for standard food packaging facilities are the GSS Stacker and GSII Servo Stacker.
This system stacks 100 pieces per minute and has built-in flexibility that allows it to handle most products within typical sizes and shapes. GSS Stackers reduce labor costs by 30%-50% and significantly reduce potential human contamination. These systems can operate with 1 to 10 lanes and are fabricated with food-grade stainless steel.
GSII Servo Stacker
This heavy-duty stacker can handle 80 pieces per minute of larger items like pizza crusts with similar flexibility to the GSS Stacker. It can be operated with 1 to 3 lanes and also reduces costs and contamination at the same levels of the GSS Stacker. The key component of the GGSI Servo Stacker is its Automated Interleaving option that allows the integration of cardboard or paper feeding. This eliminates the need for manual interleaving during this part of the packing process.
All our stackers are manufactured with Allen-Bradley touch screen controls and have full wash down capabilities thanks to the NEMA 4X Watershed Enclosures. Our systems are NFS 3A Standardized for meat and poultry and meet BISSC Standards for Baking. Forpak stackers can be manufactured with CE compliance on request and every system utilizes Intralox modular belting. Thanks to our servo-controlled actuators, all our stackers provide smooth transitioning and stacking motion.
Stacking systems are one of the most important types of food production equipment because they improve labor costs for packaging facilities, protect workers from having to perform physically stressful tasks, and promote better global food safety.
