NuTEC Manufacturing

Depositor

NuTEC Manufacturing’s C-Frame depositors are designed to improve the way processors deposit fillings for appetizers, multilayered products, rolled or wrapped product, stuffed sandwiches and more. The company’s unique feed system uses a rotating spiral that gently moves the product to the rotary vane pump. Bridging and overworking are eliminated because the product is neither rolled nor tumbled, providing excellent particle definition and piece identity in finished products. Deposit sizes of up to 1½ thick can be achieved, with certain models offering 45,000 deposits per hour. In addition, a C-frame design enables the equipment to fit into existing production lines.

According to the company, the Cobalt collator makes packing more efficient and ergonomically friendly over traditional turntable packoff lines, eliminating repetitive twisting motions and simplifying product pickup and case packing by the operator. Case counts are selected on the control panel, eliminating counting errors. System changeover from size to size takes 2 min. Made in the U.S., the system is built to withstand the heavy use of three-shift operations.
