Special features

Proven standard features

  • Feeding and sorting station with separation of small and oversized products and sugar dust
  • Gentle product separation by large diameter feed plate
  • Optimized feed plate fill level controlled by an electronic scale
  • Automatic wrapping speed control
  • Infinitely variable adjustment of the twist gripper oscillation depending on the wrapping material quality
