Any industry that directly impacts the health and well-being of our global population requires strict regulations, guidelines, and standards for quality, consistency, and trustworthy practices. From the pharmaceutical industry to the food industry, ethical companies involved in the production, packaging, storage, and distribution of goods all strive to maintain reliable operations that protect sanitary, safe consumables. In the food industry, growing trends toward sustainability and reducing waste are intertwining with existing standards for hygiene and food safety. Supporting these trends means making changes in all food production facilities, including harvesting, processing, packing, and shipping. At Forpak, we design innovative solutions for food packaging equipment to meet industry needs for increased sanitation and sustainability. Our equipment provides intelligent systems for automated conveyors, transfers, laners, sorters, stackers, and reject systems. We also provide custom equipment designs and fabrication to meet specialized needs across the food industry.
Food Packaging Equipment
Making smart adjustments in all kinds of food packaging equipment can continually improve the way packing facilities meet sustainability and sanitation standards. In particular, our reject systems can significantly reduce inaccuracies that lead to food waste and improve hygiene on the production line.
Reject Module System
Forpak has designed a unique reject module system that can be quickly and easily installed onto existing belt systems. In fact, the Forpak Reject Module can be installed and removed without taking apart belting, which limits the need for maintenance and cleaning. It’s also a lightweight design and can extend the overall lifetime of sensors and belts with discrepant product removal and product diversion.
Less Food Waste
The automated reject system pinpoints products that don’t fit tight standards, using laser systems to measure dimensions and other discrepancies. With automated, continuous rejection for discrepant products and programmable product diversion on any production line, facilities will see superior sanitation and less food waste.
Our reject system increases sanitation with its full wash-down capabilities, thanks to NEMA 4X watershed control enclosures, stainless steel components, and anti-harborage designs. It also reduces the risk of contamination between products and limits packaging inaccuracies that can cause increased human exposure to food items. An ergonomic design with a flat belt path protects the smooth transition of discrepant goods, preventing broken particles of products from lingering until the next cleaning.
In addition to promoting sanitation, our reject systems save facilities time, energy, and material costs. Rejecting discrepant products or following diversion programs helps eliminate food waste at the consumer level.
