Benchmark Automation Showcases Integrated Automation Expertise at Pack Expo 2016
ATHENS, GA — Benchmark Automation, powered by Pro Mach, will be showcasing the latest in high-quality conveyors, infeed, loading, stacking, and packaging equipment for the food and bakery industries at Pack Expo 2016 from November 6-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. (Benchmark Automation Pack Expo Booth #S-3830)
Gain productivity with the InFlight FT Loader
Benchmark’s innovative InFlight FT Loader delivers precise, continuous motion loading of product in a gentle, non-contact fashion. A floating belt-to-belt transition is used to time randomly spaced product directly into the flights of a horizontal wrapper or cartoner at speeds up to 500 ppm. In addition, the software and diagnostics loaded on an operator-friendly touchscreen minimize changeovers and downtime. The company’s InFlight FT will be integrated with a Formost Fuji Alpha VII Horizontal Wrapper.
Optimize load time with the Slugger SL
Reduce labor costs and minimize repetitive motion while obtaining higher wrapper speeds with Benchmark’s Slugger SL. This semi-automatic slug loader is primarily used for crackers and other baked goods, delivering precise slug measuring and loading from a single lane of on-edge product. Made of durable stainless steel construction, the Slugger SL mounts in-line with an on-edge horizontal wrapper and loads slugs at speeds up to 150 slugs per minute. This loader is ideal for high-speed slug loading without the cost of an elaborate, dedicated distribution system. Minimal moving parts and easy access to key components create easy maintenance for the Slugger SL.
PowerPouch Intermittent Motion Packager offers flexible packaging efficiency
Benchmark’s Southern Packaging Machinery brand will demonstrate the PowerPouch Intermittent Motion Packager – a versatile horizontal form/fill/seal pouch packaging machine designed to enhance efficiency and productivity in any packaging environment. For higher production needs, the company offers the PowerPouch Plus. This system eliminates the need for vacuum openers and replaces them with a more positive filling system, capable of running at higher speeds.
