Gated & High-Speed Gated SmartFeed®

Equipped with Shuttleworth’s innovative Slip-Torque™ roller technology, Gated SmartFeed & High-Speed Gated SmartFeed® provides low back pressure accumulation, allowing for gentle product handling while also properly spacing the product into the wrapper – minimizing the potential for product damage to occur. This will benefit the user with a highly efficient packaging line running at peak performance.

The Gated SmartFeed & High-Speed Gated SmartFeed® uses a product stop to synchronize the release of the product to the flighted infeed of a wrapper or case packer. The combination of the low pressure queue area, speed change, and the product stop, makes for a jam-free operation. Gated SmartFeeds operate at rates of 20 to 80 products per minute. The high-speed Gated SmartFeed can reach rates of 150 products per minute.
