See VIDEO: Cookie processor deploys new scales/bagging line to reduce handling damage

“We’ve slashed labour costs with this turnkey scales/bagging line.”

So says Robert Cappola, President of Mom’s Best Gourmet Foods.

“We produce 40,000-50,000 kilos of dough per day, and we needed to find a machinery integrator who could move us into a more sustainable pouch-packaging line.

“This is where PLAN IT Packaging Systems came in,” maintains Cappola. “They built the whole line for us from start to finish… to handle, weigh and bag our cookies delicately into appealing, lightweight zipper pouches that help us with our sustainability objectives.”

PLAN IT technician Rick Neill and Mom’s line operator Doecheenee Nicola take us in the video from cookie conveying to weighing, bagging and sealing Mom’s treasured Cookie Ginger Crisps.

See in the video how a unique low-height Elite combination weigh-scales system feeds an eight-station Neptune Horizontal Rotobagger at precise, consistent 170-gram weights.

Watch as Rick demonstrates the unique slanted delivery in the scale buckets equipped with a softening buffer to prevent cookie breakage. The system can reach speeds of 45 bags per minute.

Robert Cappola concludes, “I can’t tell you how much easier this makes my life.”
