Dosing channels for fruit gums

 

Heckmann has been commissioned by a major confectionery manufacturer in Germany to supply a total of 12 dosing channels for filling weighing systems.

The limited spatial conditions were a particular challenge.

Other requirements included a high standard of hygiene and a product with a tendency to stick to surfaces.

Moreover, the machines were to emit as few vibrations as possible, to prevent the neighbouring scales from being affected.

We decided to construct the dosing channels using the Vicon V design, with a variable speed magnetic drive. 

In this case, the trough is fastened to a flexibly mounted frame.

The frame was designed to ensure that >98% of vibrations would be isolated.

Both the trough and the frame had been hygienically constructed and manufactured. Stainless steel was exclusively used as a material.

To prevent the product from sticking to the trough, the areas which came into contact with the product were designed with embossed sheets.

Coating bulk goods

 

Heckmann was commissioned by a notable coffee roasting company to provide a vibrating conveyor which ensured that the product would be evenly coated.

Other requirements included a high standard of hygiene, and easy access to the parts which came into contact with the product, to facilitate the cleaning of the machine.

The machine also had to be dust-tight and must not emit any disruptive vibrations to the supporting construction.

The machine was constructed using the Vicon V design, with a magnetic drive. 

The frame was designed to ensure that >98% of vibrations would be isolated.

This design made the nozzles and the entire machine freely accessible from the top and sides.

This enabled us to meet demands for changing nozzles quickly, and cleaning areas which came into contact with the product quickly.
