25 % productivity increase

Automatic Clipping/Hanging Machine for looped products (sausage, cheese)
Efficiency increase thanks to a marked manpower reduction and higher throughput on the filling line
Optimum smoke stick loading for maximum utilisation of smoking and cooking plant capacity
Calibre range 38 – 100 mm

FCHL 160

The FCHL 160, automatic double-clipper with integrated hanging line, efficiently combines four processes in a way which saves on manpower: clipping with simultaneous looping, hanging the loop and positioning on the smoke stick. This ensures continuous production at up to 85 loops per minute and therefore an increased output rate. The precise positioning allows a higher loading density and thus an optimal utilization of the smoke sticks as well as the smoking or cooking capacity. Request Info

While the portion is closed with clips and the loop is set, a special finger takes the product loop directly from the separating area of the clipping machine and positions the product automatically on the smoke stick. When the stick is full, it is moved to the discharge buffer, while another empty stick is positioned for further loading. Meanwhile, the production is running continuously. Request Info


maximum efficiency thanks to robot-controlled, fully-automatic discharge of filled sticks and positioning in the smoke trolley with the ASL-R at a rate of 7 sticks per minute. The combination of FCHL 160 with ASL-R increases the output rate once again by up to 10 % with additional reduction of the manpower requirement by up to 40 %.
