Soup dosing

Soep doseer

In addition to dosing sauces, dressings and purees, you can also contact us for dosing soups, with our LEONHARDT TG, AG and TGs series. These dosing pumps can dose creamy and clear soups, from hot to cold and everything in between. Thanks to the powerful rotating conical valves, we can supply a robust machine that can dose soups with large particles up to 40 by 40 mm.
 
The dosing machinery of LEONHARDT, that work with powerful piston cylinders, can be installed on various packaging systems. From tray sealers, thermoformers to horizontal bag machines. For tray sealers we can configure the machine as a start-stop or as a continuous line.
 
The machines from LEONHARDT are known for their machines to be tailored to the wishes of the customers. The hopper can be supplied in different sizes and optimized in such a way that, for example, the soup does not separate. As a standard option we can supply the dosing machines with vertical movement to ensure that the product does not spill.  
 
The universal and mobile machines can be used in different lines, and the modular design allows dosing with different products and weights.

With SHEFF, SIXPAL has added another machine to their portfolio. The company is continuously developing new solutions for customers who encounter complex problems, including the SHEFF.

The ready-to-eat salads and fresh packages are an indispensable part of the supermarket. The market demand to automate the monotonous work of putting sachets and cups in packaging was therefore increasing.

That is why SIXPAK developed the SHEFF. A compact and mobile robot with 3D vision technology that picks products randomly from a crate and places them in trays on a conveyor belt. Specialized in cups, sachets, and food products, this SHarp and EFFicient robot can place up to 50 products per minute in salads, fresh packages, or other packaging.

“There was a lot of demand for a solution that could challenge this problem. The damp and cold environment is far from ideal for the workers and the monotonous work is not cooperative either. The big difference with other pick & place systems is that the products do not have to be separated first. SHEFF is the employee who starts first, goes home last, and of course always remains motivated” thus SIXPAK.
