SPEE-DEE® SIMPLIFIES COMPLEX FILLING PROCESSES THROUGH DEVELOPMENT OF COMBINATION FILLING SYSTEM

Sturtevant, Wis. — James P. Navin, President of Spee-Dee® Packaging Machinery, Inc., announced the unveiling of an innovative combination filling system, which unites a Spee-Dee Servo 3600 Auger Filler with two Volumetric Cup Fillers.  “Our latest offering reflects Spee-Dee’s impressive track record of pioneering unique equipment architecture to meet specific production challenges,” Navin stated.

According to Timm Johnson, Vice President Sales/Marketing, the company’s new three filler equipment configuration integrates two particulates and a powder within a single pouch at rates of up to 120 units per minute.  “By merging these equipment technologies, we are able to offer a more effective filling method that improves product quality through better blending of ingredients,” Johnson explained.  A continuous motion Vertical/Form/Fill/Seal unit is utilized in place of a traditional Horizontal/Form/Fill/Seal system to improve cycle times and minimize the amount of production space required for the manufacturing process.

The Spee-Dee three filler combination system addresses a broad range of product applications, including soup and baking mixes, pasta and other side dishes, cereal products and a variety of additional consumer convenience products. Spee-Dee® has previously successfully combined an Auger Filler with a Volumetric Filler and also teamed a pair of Auger Fillers to more efficiently combine two products within one container.
