Commercial Bacon Production Packaging Solutions
Flexibility is a primary feature of Pacproinc®’s Bacon Systems. Configurable for lay-flat or bulk bacon, these interleavers/counters/stackers perform high-speed, automatic paper placement while centering product (side-to-side) on the interleaving paper for improved arrangement quality.
The Pacproinc® Bacon System can produce up to 3300 lbs of lay-flat bacon per hour, and a high-speed downgrade diverter interfaces with vision slicers to automate the grading process and guarantee that downgrades are not combined with number one bacon.
The high-speed PPI-200 Interleaver dispenses paper only when bacon is present in a commercial bacon production line. This highly accurate interleaving ensures that bacon is correctly positioned on the paper (both side-to-side and front-to-back), and the automatic stacker eliminates the “bunching” associated with manual “grab stacking.”
Auto stacking is better for the bottom line, as well; the PPI-200 Bacon System reduces labor, training expenses, and repetitive motion injuries while cutting commercial bacon production operating costs and improving product packaging and presentation.
The PPI-200-SS-CD card feeder is designed specifically for harsh environments and interfaces easily with any slicing, forming, processing, or packaging equipment in your commercial bacon production line. Our inline designs save valuable floor space, while automated reloading systems allow for continuous operation, and precision card placement ensures accurate automation of bacon packaging materials.
This reliable feeding system will not jam or double-feed when working with bacon packaging materials, as is common with traditional card feeders. Its large-capacity magazine allows for extended run time (up to 45 minutes between reload), and the system features an automated, UPC code-enabled fast setup to accelerate card setup and changeover. Versatile designs allow users to run many types of cards (e.g. window, non-window, foldable flap, or no flap).
The PPI-200-SS-CD feeds up to 80 cards/minute and is guaranteed to reduce downtime associated with bacon packaging materials, such as missed cards, double feeds, and jams.
Auto-Loading with Bacon Packaging Materials
Whether you are interleaving and stacking or just stacking, many of Pacproinc®’s auto stacking modules have the ability to load your counted and stacked product directly into the package. We have extensive and unique experience handling stacked food products and providing bacon packaging materials. Our abilities allow us to introduce finished stacks from your commercial bacon production line directly into trays, cartons, or pockets.
The Stack Pack-off Conveyor Option combines the flow of stacks from our Dual Station Star Wheel Stackers into a single flow for downstream automation and labor reduction. This optional conveyor can be paired with our High Speed Food Service Bacon Automation System to feed directly to a boxing station or a Form/Fill/Seal Gas Flush Packaging Machine. Additionally, the single flow of products allows for more ergonomic scale operation of your commercial bacon production line and may only require a single scale operator.
