The Use of Autotransfers in a Food Packaging Equipment Facility

In a factory setting, the most important parts of the entire facility are the equipment systems that sort and transfer rapidly moving loads of products while keeping them organized. When it comes to factories in the food packaging industry, the precision of sanitary, food-grade conveying and sorting systems is critical for meeting USDA and FDA standards as a facility. Not only must food-grade equipment be capable of handling thousands of products daily, it also needs to be capable of handling frequent washdown sanitations and meet OSHA standards. At MultiSource Manufacturing LLC, our Forpak branch has been working for more than 30 years to provide custom, innovative solutions for industrial food packaging equipment in a factory setting.

Forpak works with OEMs and other customers to determine their needs and design a unique food packaging equipment solution that can be easily integrated into existing facilities while limiting production downtime to a minimum. We fabricate food packaging equipment designs for conveying, stacking, sorting, laning, and transferring products for the bakery, meat, and pizza industry. Auto transfers are one of our many important innovative systems. Although an auto transfer might seem simple, these systems are a critical component in maintaining a rapid, streamlined production line without back-ups and jumbled goods.

What do they do?

Forpak’s auto transfers are designed to place stacks of food products into flights of flow wrappers. Their conveyor feeds select stacks at an ideal rate to maintain nonstop movement on the production line. Our Autotransfer, for example, can direct 60 transfers with 2 stacks per flight each minute. It can also be set to transfer 80 sets per minute with 1 stack on each flight. This means you can move up to 57,600 or 38,400 stacks in an ideal eight-hour production day. Forpak auto transfers eliminate human error in the flow wrapper and are hailed as industry leading inserters.
