Product handling Formed products

Suitable solution for the production of modern, contemporary products

The most productive way of producing formed products is a process that encompasses everything from filling to depositing into trays. Whether it be formed products or minced meat portions and minced meat products. The modular structure of the line solutions from Handtmann ensures the effectiveness of the line solution in conjunction with the MBF 1 forming device and VRB-150 retraction belt or with the GMD minced meat portioner and VRB-260 retraction belt. The products are placed gently and precisely in the trays provided by the tray denester. Single, shingled or stacked. Individually and in quantities of your choice. Without a tray depositor, depositing onto subsequent conveyor belts, cooking and frying systems or packaging machines are possible as an alternative.

With this system solution, comprising a Handtmann vacuum filler, MBF1 forming system, VRB1 retraction belt and tray denester, formed products are placed directly into trays. The Handtmann vacuum filler portions accurate to the gram, the MBF forming system produces precisely formed products, the synchronised VRB1 retraction belt conveys the products gently and precisely into the trays provided by the tray denester.

With the VRB 260 with a wider belt, it is possible to also deposit minced meat portions and minced meat products, such as rib burgers, into trays, in addition to formed products. The modular structure of the Handtmann line solutions makes it possible to also work with an optional GMD minced meat portioner, Weighing System WS910 and an Intray cycled conveyor belt instead of the MBF 1 forming device.
