One of the attractive features of the multi-pitch tray indexing track is the ability to process trays with varying insert configurations. The indexing pitch required is simply programmed into the operator interface panel built into the main control panel. Once each tray configuration is programmed, the program is then saved into the menu selection screen within the operator panel for future use.
The tray indexing track can provide an indexing rate of up to 30 indexes per minute which, if processing a six across tray configuration creates an impressive 180 products per minute. The design of the machine, with 12 gauge stainless steel folded “C” section side plates, and integral guarding of the drive belt, provides the highest safety standards and maximum accessibility for hygiene requirements.
