In-feed conveyors are usually an inclined cleated belt conveyor that is readily rebuilt by replacing bearings and belts with large infeed hoppers.

The transition system transports weighed product from the weigher to the bagger. It is typically the most overlooked part of these systems and is frequently in poor condition resulting in a host of packaging problems. Because most, if not all of the transition system is made up of parts that are subject to friction with product, opening and closing of hoppers, flaps and doors, starting and stopping of conveyors this system needs to be well maintained.

Here is what just one satified customer had to say:

"Since putting our bagger online we have drastically reduced waste and labor costs associated with packaging mini bagels and bulk packaged product. It would be wonderful if all our packaging equipment worked just like the Vortex/Affeldt machine."
