Heat and Control Showcasing Next-Gen Snack Food Bagmakers and Case Packers
Heat and Control (www.heatandcontrol.com) will demonstrate the next generation of seasoning, conveying, weighing, packaging and inspection systems this year at PACK EXPO International.
Some features include the Ishida Case Packer and Inspira, the horizontal motion conveyor and seasoning solutions: FastBack, a leading innovator of equipment for the controlled application of liquid and dry ingredients: Spray Dynamics, and the industry metal detector standard: CEIA.
Both Inspira, the next generation VFFS bagmaker, and ACP-700, an automatic case packer, are new to Ishida’s packaging lineup. The machines are integrated and automated packaging solutions for the snack industry that claim to improve efficiency and performance, and provide effective automation and communications between the weigher, bagmaker and case packer.
Heat and Control also came out with a new navigation interface, New Horizon. The solution delivers essential information to help operators and maintenance personnel succeed. It features a clear touchscreen display and intuitive interface that can quickly and thoroughly be understood and correctly operated. All relevant information is in one location where operators can get needed real-time indication of the machine’s performance when making the necessary adjustments to keep a production line moving, and smart alarms give early warnings before matters become critical.
FastBack Revolution On-Machine Seasoning System
The FastBack Revolution OMS System combines the superior seasoning performance of the patented dynamic AccuFlavor Tumble Drum, the efficiency of the Modular Dust Collection System, and the advanced FastBack 260E-G3 into one compact, cost-efficient, standalone unit designed to overcome seasoning challenges at the weigher.
Slurry-on-Demand Continuous Mixer
The Slurry-on-Demand Continuous Mixer eliminates the inherent flaws of standard mix and use tank systems. The recipe-driven, tankless, continuous mixer automatically and accurately mixes seasonings and liquids into homogeneous, lump-free slurries in the desired quantity demanded downstream, significantly reducing wasted ingredients and operator start-up and cleaning time. And because an operator is not involved in measuring and dosing ingredients, the exact quantities of ingredients are accurately dosed and the ratios maintained, resulting in minimal residual slurry at the end of a production run.
