Examples of containers filled by the volumetric pocket filler.
With the explosion in the marketplace of refrigerated and frozen
prepared meals in a multitude of oven and/or microwaveable, such as
compartment trays, dishes, cups, boil-in-bags and the like, the food
processors see themselves confronted with
the task of economically filling relatively small quantities of a
variety of foods. Many products are very delicate to handle and at the
same time need to create eye appeal.
In the past, traditional filling methods did not provide gentle handling
for these difficult to fill products without damage, or the ability to
fill small quantities with reasonable accuracies. Therefore those
filling requirements were accomplished by either hand fill or
semi-automatic equipment, making the filling process costly in an ever
growing and highly competitive marketplace. Multi-Fill has developed
equipment to meet those requirements, the model MPF fillers.
These machines are used on most of the frozen dinner lines in the U.S.,
many other production lines worldwide. Among our customers are some of
the most important players in the ready meal industry. The MPF
volumetric pocket filler dispenses a wide variety of difficult-to-handle
products such as cooked rice and pasta (long and short goods), IQF
rice, sliced and diced vegetables (tempered or IQF) and fruits, as well
as refrigerated and ready-to-eat salads. This system is ideally suited
for ready meal containers including trays, cups, plates, pouches, jars
and cans. The design and mobility allow it to be positioned directly
over diverse production lines.
