The wing counting system of Jansen Techniek is a unique system designed to automatically count, batch and package chicken wings. The system consists of the following components:
The Buffer Bin
The chicken wings are collected in a large capacity buffer bin which has two integrated conveyor belts. One moves the product towards the front of the bin. The other transports the product up and out of the bin, feeding it onto the counting system at the right speed, without applying too much pressure on the product and without losing any marinade. The belt speeds can easily be adjusted to fit the desired production speed and thanks to its hygienic construction the buffer bin is easy to clean.
The Counting System
Once the wings have been fed onto the counting system they undergo five accelerations which separate the products from each other. Subsequently they are dispensed into the batch conveyor by means of a number of pre-count-hoppers. These pre-count-hoppers ensure the products are dispensed into the correct batches.
Batch Conveyor and Buffer Hopper system
The batches are collected and transported in compartments after which they are dispensed into the buffer hopper system which in turn dispenses the batches neatly into the tray sealer.
The system is controlled from a stainless steel e-cabinet which is fixed to the counting system. All belts are controlled by Danfoss inverters and programmed with Siemens software.
|Counting speed||30.000 - 45.000 pieces/hour depending on product and machine version|
|Belt Type||Intralox modular belt|
|Construction Materials||SS 304 / HMPE|
