This semi-automated depositor is more robust and automated than a manually operated table top depositor yet less costly than a fully automated depositor.
It is easy to use. Moulds are loaded individually onto the indexing conveyor and the conveyor lugs move it forward under the depositing head. The first photo eye under the depositor recognizes the edge of the mould and slows the conveyor and the 2nd photo eye stops the mould under the nozzles. The depositing hopper is lowered and raised to deposit product one row at a time and the depositing cycle repeats until the number of pre-programmed deposits are met. The conveyor belt will run continuously until the edge of the next mould (mold) board is recognized and the machine can be operated continuously to complete a production run. Please note: As the hopper gets low you will need to add more product and/or adjust the flow on the control panel.
