Nose Conveyor for collation/Grouping
to collate pairs of thin, flat bread and arrange in stacks of 8
for bagging in retail pack.
at 65+ pairs per minute.
and construct a 3 axis servo
controlled take off grouping machine incorporating
a telescopic or extending/retracting nose conveyor, with a
stacking platform beneath to hold collation
until ready for release onto
packing line. By
means of the digital axis used in the machine , an additional benefit
has been to enable the cut lengths of the product to be measured and
rejected if over or under sized.
date 5 of these systems have been supplied
to the one client in Victoria, Australia.
This product grouping machine
is adaptable to a number of other tasks, such as collation of cartons
in various formats, placing dough products onto baking trays,
transferring product onto production lines at right angles,
A further development in
the processing line, has been to add another AHP designed bag
loading machine, to load these collated flat breads into
us to discuss possible applications, or for
a solution to your automation requirement.

simultaneously into an open, light film plastic tray, and then to
construct a part full scale system to pack up to 8 different biscuit
types on edge into thin thermoformed tray at 25 cycles per minute.
new system was a proof of principle development to automate the
current manual process.
packing heads with removable tooling for each biscuit type were
mounted onto a
packing platform with storage bin handling systems into and out of
the system. Heads were
mounted over an indexing conveyor which transported the trays to each
