& Feeding

& Feeding

Reliable product registration and feeding are absolutely foundational to the success of any automated system. At Graybill Machines, we have an extensive history of accomplishing this critical task with a variety of product types.

Custom Solutions for Product Feeding & Registration

Automated registration and feeding equipment are tasked with making sure the product is received from one machine and delivered to the next one in the exact configuration needed. This often includes receiving & separating; metered feeding; orienting; registration, timing, & indexing; grouping & pattern building; and loading & unloading.

Common Feeding Processes

Because of the uniqueness of your product and manufacturing process, registration and feeding equipment should be custom built to your needs and specifications. However, there are certain common processes for feeding and product registration:

  • Lane multiplication & reduction
  • Row aligning & “Smart belt” indexing
  • Cookie or biscuit placing for mould lines
  • Missing product insertion
  • Product collating
  • Accumulation & refeeding
  • Proofer tray loading
  • Stacking products
  • Vibratory feeding
  • Product orientation
  • Row forming and registration
  • Product accumulation
  • Separating discrete pieces
  • Lane forming
  • Removal of brokens and fines
  • Loading and grouping

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.
