James P. Navin, President of Spee-Dee Packaging Machinery, Inc. (www.spee-dee.com), announces the unveiling of an innovative combination filling system, which unites a Spee-Dee Servo 3600 Auger Filler with two volumetric cup fillers. “Our latest offering reflects Spee-Dee’s impressive track record of pioneering unique equipment architecture to meet specific production challenges,” Navin states.

According to Timm Johnson, Vice President Sales/Marketing, the company’s new three filler equipment configuration integrates two particulates and a powder within a single pouch at rates of up to 120 units per minute. “By merging these equipment technologies, we are able to offer a more effective filling method that improves product quality through better blending of ingredients,” Johnson explains. A continuous motion vertical/form/fill/seal unit is utilized in place of a traditional horizontal/form/fill/seal system to improve cycle times and minimize the amount of production space required for the manufacturing process.

The Spee-Dee three filler combination system addresses a broad range of product applications, including soup and baking mixes, pasta and other side dishes, cereal products and a variety of additional consumer convenience products.
