Plate Dropping
& Cup Setting

Running a production line at the increased speeds and efficiencies desired today means that placing foils, trays, or cups rapidly and accurately requires automation. We can work with you to provide reliable solutions for your dropping and cup setting needs.

Dependably Place Plates & Cups in Your Line

If your line requires aluminum foil pans, plastic trays, or paper liners, you need confidence that your equipment is feeding and placing them accurately and consistently.


Graybill Machines is experienced at building dropping, placing, and setting equipment for food manufacturers. Our machines can be designed to work with large stacks of nested foils of all shapes and sizes, as well configured for single or multiple lanes, or to work with single or multiple sizes. A machine can be customized to your specific needs and desired rates to keep production running smoothly.

Common Dropping & Setting Processes

Depending on your product and specifications, we can design an automated machine for common or specialized dropping & setting processes, including:

  • Foil feeders & placing
  • Cup setters
  • Cupcake paper de-nesters
  • Paper cup placers
  • Plastic jug & lid feeding & placing

Standard Designs

While each project we take is unique, we have developed some machinery solutions that are standard designs. Our standard designs have already been engineered, tested, and are currently in live production lines. Each is available for customization to meet your needs and desired production capabilities.
