Globally leading the way in preparation for packaging. The only company offering systems to load frankfurters, sausages, cheese sticks, and other products.

Align - Convey - Load cylindrical food products at speeds up to 1,800 pieces / minute enabling flexible film, can, tray, box, and jar packaging. Custom designs deliver maximum yields while maintaining product integrity and aesthetics. Increase throughput with easy operation and cleaning.

Alignment Options:

Launcher - Quickly load fragile products such as cooked sausages and fresh cheese sticks.

Unscrambler belts are used to sort and launch product. Models enable flexible film and box loading.

Singulator - Fragile, curved natural casing product falls onto a narrow V-Belt to be arranged into flights
on the conveyor. Primarily used to feed robotic loading heads.

Collator - Frankfurters, sausages, vienna sausages, snack sticks, pickles, corn dogs, and other products
fall into flights with the aid of stirrer paddles.

Centrifugal Feeder - A variety of cylindrical product types are collected on a circular disc, mounted on an
angle. This rotates at variable speeds to place product into flights.

Loading Head Options:

Mechanical Placement - Versatile loading heads offer quick changeover times to precisely deliver
product into a variety of pocket configurations. A CLX or SWP head mechanically places product into
packaging dies.

Robotic Placement - Adjusts to the flow of product through one easy-to-operate control platform and
touchscreen for the entire system. High speed end of arm tooling gently picks and places into packaging
equipment. Drake custom food grade robotics were developed to increase capacity and
maneuverability while remaining easy to program and maintain.
