Why work with FCHL LS?

6 reasons

01 Safety
Construction and design comply with EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EG. This automatic hanging line therefore has a complete safety package.

02 Continuous production
The FCHL series has a robust industrial design in proven Poly-clip quality. It is suitable for multi-shift operation, easy to maintain with few wearing parts. The remote maintenance control can additionally increase production reliability.

03 Increased efficiency
Remarkably increased output and at the same time cost savings on manpower. With this precise hanging, your added benefit is the full utilization of capacity during the further thermal treatment.

04 Reduced maintenance costs
The automatic clipper offers the automatic central lubrication. You can rely on the accomplishment of this important task.

05 Help towards self-help
The operating manual where it is needed – when it's needed: in the SAFETY TOUCH. Automatic clipping machines in proven Poly-clip quality with PC 200 control have the operating manual on board, where it can also be easily updated.

06 Further enhance productivity
The robot-controlled, fully-automatic smoke trolley loading system ASL-R, available as an option, further increases the output rate while reducing the workforce.



  • Automatic positioning of long looped products on the smoke stick at high throughput rates
  • Efficiency through reduced workforce at the filling line in combination with robot-controlled smoke trolley loading system
  • Optimum utilization of smoking and cooking plant capacity

The FCHL LS Automatic Hanging Line works reliably and continuously linked directly to FCA 160 double-clippers and the robot-controlled, fully-automatic smoke trolley loading system ASL-R (optional). Looped products in the calibre range 38 to 100 mm are positioned highly efficient on the smoke stick – continuously, accurately and in a high positioning rate. The precise positioning allows a higher loading density.

The FCHL LS is connected mechanically and electrically to an FCA. The smoke sticks are automatically taken from the stick loader and brought to the loading position. While the portion is closed with clips and the loop is set, a special finger takes the looped product directly from the separating area of the double-clipper and positions it 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. The loaded smoke stick is positioned into the smoke trolley by the ASL-R robot-controlled loading system or with a customer-supplied lifting device. Meanwhile, the production is running continuously.

  • ASL-R
  • 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 with ASL-R increases the output rate once again by up to 10 % with additional reduction of the manpower requirement by up to 40 %.
