Snacks

In the production of snacks, it is crucial to use equipment which is easy to clean and allows for a fast changeover between products. Vacuum conveyors are used to convey seasoning to the seasoning machine or to reclaim broken products from the packaging step and move them back to the previous step. Manual feeding of the snacks can easily be replaced by a vacuum conveyor since powder pick up is possible from a barrel or container.

What Piab offers

  • Efficiency: thorough and quick to convey products from point A to point B
  • Hygiene and health: easy to clean and maintain
