The distribution of produce from manufacture to packaging machines

  • J. H. Hooper


The simplest way of supplying pieces to a wrapping machine is for the operator to place them by hand into the machine. In the early days of automatic wrapping machinery, that was the standard way. Even now this is still done, in small businesses or with very delicate products. For example, chocolate bars may be pushed either singly or in groups from a table on to a belt and chocolate eggs may be placed individually into a recessed wheel. This is a slow operation particularly with small products; additionally, for hygienic reasons, the less a food product is handled the better.
