Why clip with FCHL?

7 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 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.

05 Control of all machines
With this double-clipper, recipes can be duplicated, backed up and restored with the SAFETY TOUCH. Your advantage is trouble-free program updates and the extremely fast adaptation of other clipping machines.

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

07 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 Clipping/Hanging Machine for looped products (sausage, cheese)
  • Efficiency increase thanks to a marked manpower reduction and higher throughput on the filling line
  • Calibre range 38 to 100 mm
  • Up to 85 loops per minute

The FCHL ensures continuous production and therefore an increased output rate. The 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 (suspension) on the smoke stick.

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.
