- 3 powered product infeed conveyors feed into Bombay-style case packers.
- A high-speed packing product conveyor separates product before feeding a counting funnel.
- The Bombay "door" is positioned below the counting funnel receiving product to full case count. The packer then receives a signal and drops product into the awaiting erected case which has been fed into the 3 case packers by a Combi 2-EZ® SB case erector.
- Once filled, the case count is verified by a Checkweigher and each case receives a print and applied label pre-programmed with product info relative to that line.
- Filled cases are indexed into a Combi TBS100FC top case sealer and sealed with adhesive tape. Rate of production is 12 cases per minute.
- Customer's productivity has increased 400%; staffing reduced (re-assigned) by 300%
