Food Production Equipment Highlight: GSII Stackers

When it comes to supporting food safety worldwide, standardized sanitation practices in the production and packaging processes on an industrial level is key. The majority of frozen, refrigerated, and dry goods are distributed on a global scale. At Forpak, we manufacture unique automation solutions for food safety in packaging systems, including stackers, conveyors, transfers, reject detectors, sorters, laners, and custom designs for OEMs and other customers in the meat, bakery, and pizza industries. We work with trusted partners to source materials and parts, and our engineers and technicians are a skilled design/build team. Forpak is your one-stop-shop for the innovative design and manufacturing of food production equipment that can be easily integrated into new facilities or existing production lines.

Food Production Equipment

Each operation that goes into a food packaging production floor has its own specifications that can vary by product. Even within standard operations like laning, sorting, and stacking, the equipment needs to be fitted to product dimensions, weight, and more. Forpak is here to help clients working in food production fit in the exact extra step they need in their operations line.

One of the main kinds of food production equipment we design and build for clients is our stackers. The bakery, pizza, and meat industries all utilize packaging designs that often require multiple products to be stacked into one unit and transferred down the line.

Our GSII Servo Stackers are ideal for large products like pizza crusts, pita breads, and anything in between.
