DS 552 depositing system

High-performance, accurate-to-the-gram dosing

The DS 552 depositing system is a valve-free, high-performance depositing system for the precise and safe dosing of fluid, pasty to viscous filling products. A wide variety of products from the meat, vegetarian, bakery, dairy and pet food sectors are dosed onto up to 24 lanes with accuracy to the gram. A continuous process for the industrial production on dough sheet systems, in thermo-forming packaging machines or tray sealers.

High industrial dosing performance

By means of continuous product ejection or continuously adjustable portion sizes of 5 to 500 g, the automatic dosing process can be flexibly expanded from 2 to 24 lanes. The innovative, valve-free dosing principle allows a production output of up to 200 cycles per minute. It is therefore the perfect economic solution for industrial applications.

Perfect weight accuracy
The DS 552 depositing system is, above all, characterised by its accurate-to-the-gram dosing of a wide variety of products, from fluid, pasty or viscous to chunky.  The patented, servo-driven flow divider in the depositing system ensures a constant product flow onto several lanes without pressure fluctuations, resulting in most accurate weights and optimal product appearance in every single lane.

Flexibility for a wide range of products and types of containers
The DS 552 provides direct, multi-lane and flexible dosing on dough sheet systems, in thermo-packaging machines or tray sealers. It also offers a large selection of dosing nozzles for a wide range of products with accurate-to-the-gram and exact dosing in first-class product quality.

Hygienic dosing with benefits in handling
Thanks to the valve-free dosing principle, no safety housing is required, which ensures easy access to the system. The modular system design and the use of different dosing nozzles thus facilitate quick product changes, reduce set-up times and enable fast and impeccable cleaning.
