Softtop™ Carousel, 6-station

This carousel has 6-bag filling heads and 6-stations. Combined with a Lockwood computerized weigher it provides optimum production and versatility in packing produce. The Lockwood Softtop carousel is a semi- automatic filling machine for packing potatoes, onions, (small) carrots and fruit. The vibrating Softtop is specially designed to minimize damage to the produce. The control box, with display, is easy to operate and is used to fine tune the machine. And it takes care of the synchronization of signals to and from the weigher.

An operator puts the bag under the carousel bagholder and the carousel clamps the bag while still turning. A photo eye detects the bag and when this bagholder is in the right position the carousel signals to the weigher, ready to receive produce. If no bag is present the station passes without receiving a charge.

After the bag has been filled it is automatically released at an adjustable location. At this point of release the bags may be closed manually or automatically.
