PTH portioning, tying and hanging line

Automatic portioning, tying and hanging of sausages in natural and collagen casing

The Handtmann PTH portioning, tying and hanging line offers medium-scale and industrial sausage producers an automated productions process for the filling, portioning, tying and hanging of products in natural and collagen casing. The tied sausages are reliably transferred to the hanging unit at the tying point with flexible hook and group spacing. From here, the products such as Regensburger, Sardelki or Špekáčky are simply placed on a smoke stick and sent to thermal treatment. An automated production process for products with homemade quality!


Handtmann PTH

Economically efficient automation process for tied products

The automated PTH overall solution combines the advantages of the Handtmann portioning and hanging lines with those of the Inotec IGS2-iT tying technology. Reliable filling, portioning, tying and hanging ensures a highly efficient overall process with high effective production output. Portion weights accurate to the gram significantly reduce give-away and production costs.

Quality and appearance like handmade

This semi-automatic overall process helps produce perfectly tied, high-quality products in natural and collagen casing like handmade. The slight “overfill” creates nice, well-filled products with a bite and saves on casing at the same time. The spacing of the individual portions defined by the hanging unit additionally ensures even smoking and cooking. Full-pressure tying prevents filling product residues at the tying point and thus guarantees hygienically flawless production, as does the elimination of manual intervention.

Simple operation of the overall line

Thanks to the optimal synchronisation of the individual components and automatic programme change, the overall line is easy and intuitive to operate. A swivelling filling tube facilitates casing spooling, as does an optional casing spooling device and an optimally accessible natural casing magazine. The large Inotec thread rolls reduce changeovers to a minimum, with thread changes completed in just a few simple steps. In case of lack of thread or casing, the line switches off automatically and rejects are prevented.
