Designed for easy wash-down, company’s WD Series machines are suitable for a variety of sectors where hygiene is paramount, including meat, poultry, cheese, confectionary, and bread.
Lisse, Netherlands – Cremer, a leading supplier of product counting machines in the U.S. and abroad for a wide array of applications, will showcase a line of hygiene-centric counting machines designed for easy wash-down at Pack Expo 2023, September 11-13 in Las Vegas. At Booth SL-6509, the company will display its WD Series, designed for precise counting and dispensing of individual food products in a variety of applications where cleanliness is paramount – including poultry, meat, seafood, cheese, confectionary and bread products.
Counting food products by the piece is regarded as the most efficient, cost-effective alternative to modern weighing and pick-and-place systems for a wide range of products, as counting accuracy is not affected by small weight variations between individual pieces. Optical counting – as opposed to weight-centric quality control – guarantees that the net contents in terms of count is 100 percent accurate for both wholesale and retail packages. Optical counting also prevents product loss, avoids product wastage, and maximizes production efficiency.
WD Series machines are scalable for varying production levels. Compatible with all industrial packaging machines, highlights include a compact footprint, FDA-compliant product parts for processing both food and non-food products and streamlined tool-free disassembly. Other features include a product detection unit with 100 percent accuracy, hinged side panels for optimal cleanability and vibratory plates for product transport and separation.
The WD Series’ stainless-steel frame and contact parts are corrosion-resistant and designed for low-pressure hose wash and sanitizing chemicals. Additionally, the WD Series can be equipped with an optional parts trolley for convenient sanitizing. With its compact footprint, the WD series machines can easily be placed on a hygienic platform, on top of a Vertical Form Fill Seal (VFFS) bagmaker or over an indexing tray or carton conveyor. Fully customized hygienic counting machines are also available.
