Pasta Packaging Machine for Counting, Stacking & Interleaving

Interleaving for Pasta Sheets

This Pacproinc® PPI-200 pasta packaging machine is an interleaver that automatically places paper, film, or foil under your pasta sheets. In this way, our pasta packaging machine system improves freeze release, ease of preparation, sanitary handling, shelf life, portion control, separation, and package presentation.

Interleaved (underleaved) products moving through the pasta sheet interleaver equipment can be conveyed to one of our modular auto stackers. This creates hands-free counting and auto stacking capabilities before introduction to your pasta packaging or wrapping machine. Gain additional line flexibility with our bypass option. This option is available to accommodate processing of non-interleaved or non-stacked product and allows these products to be introduced to a final packaging machine without having to take the interleaver or stacker out of your pasta production line.

All of our pasta manufacturing equipment solutions are available as a combination interleaver and stacker or as standalone components designed to fit your application. The PPI-200 pasta packaging machine solution is a sanitary, washdown-duty, stainless steel system. The streamlined interleaver design incorporates leading-edge Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and servo motor technology, ensuring low maintenance and a long machine life. With compact designs available, the PPI-200 requires a minimal amount of floor space within your pasta production line and is engineered to exceed the American Meat Industry’s 10 Principles of Sanitary Design.

The PPI-200 product line features rugged, stainless steel construction and climate-controlled (dehumidified), fully gasketed enclosures. Our PLC-based pasta packaging machine design enables easy production setup and changes, as well as networking with other pasta manufacturing equipment.

Our pasta sheet interleaver designs and superior construction go beyond simply addressing the need for efficient operation of pasta packaging machines within a pasta production line—ease of sanitary maintenance is central to our solutions:

  • Stand-off mounted components prevent the trapping of any product scrap improving sanitation.
  • Ground and polished welds further eliminate bacteria harborage points, making cleaning to a microbiological level possible.
  • All pasta packaging machine control cabinets and enclosures have sheet metal breaks eliminating the possibility of standing water on flat surfaces.
  • We use sealed stainless steel bearings in all food-contact areas to prevent product contamination and offer optional, antibacterial belting.
  • All pasta packaging machines are available with casters or leveling pads to meet your plant’s unique requirements.
  • Trays keep product scraps out of the paper path and paper tails off the floor to prevent material contamination.
  • Welded construction eliminates recessed bolt heads and other areas that could collect product cast-offs and harbor bacteria growth.

Pacproinc® pasta packaging machines are built to accommodate your application, with standard operating widths ranging from 3-40”. These solutions can be configured for single lane, multiple lanes, or unique groupings.

Our patented jam detectors significantly reduce costly downtime, and the PPI-200 includes Allen Bradley controls and touch screens as standard equipment. All programming is done by our in-house automation engineers, and all Pacproinc® pasta manufacturing equipment systems are supported by our 24/7 service team.

Stand-Alone Counter/Stackers

Don’t need interleaving? No problem. Pacproinc® offers a variety of modular counter/stackers to fit any application, and our custom pasta manufacturing equipment designs easily interface with upstream production equipment and end-of-line packaging machinery.

High-speed, sanitary, hands-free counting/auto stacking guarantees better, more accurate stacks for easier packaging and improved product presentation.

Counting and auto stacking reduces labor and training expenses, as well as the incidence of repetitive motion injuries. This PPI-200 pasta manufacturing equipment increases your production line throughput while cutting operating costs and improving product presentation and packaging.

Like all of our designs, our stand-alone counters/stackers feature rugged, stainless steel construction and climate-controlled, fully gasketed enclosures. Our PLC design enables easy production setup and changes to parameters like stack count, delay, speed, and portion thickness. Our solutions are easily networked with other equipment to seamlessly interface with pasta sheet production requirements like product changeover or stoppages.

Pacproinc® can configure your PPI-200 to accept product in single or multiple lanes. We can also singulate (combine multiple lanes into a single lane) finished stacks for delivery to the packaging machine, and all stackers can be fitted with our Remote Monitoring and Diagnostic System (RMDS).


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, which allows us to introduce finished stacks directly into trays, cartons, or pockets at the end of your pasta production line.
