Advanced Volumetric System (AVS) Offers Precise Fills

Spee-Dee’s AVS directly mounts over a VFFS bag machine or conveyor system, replacing large, complicated multihead weighers that typically require a mezzanine. The AVS delivers precise fills when nut and snack packagers need to fill by volume and sell by weight.

  • Smart filler automatically adjusts fills based on feedback from the checkweigher to account for density fluctuation of nuts, trail mix and other snack foods
  • Less than half the cost of a more complicated multihead weigher
  • Simple, operator-friendly design with fewer moving parts and less to maintain
  • Quick changeover of cups and tooling within minutes boosts uptime productivity versus several hours with typical multihead weighers

Conveyor Systems Automate Filling Lines 

Spee-Dee’s efficient conveyor systems pack granular product like nuts and snack mixes into a variety of containers.

  • Freestanding fillers reduce downtime and ensure fast product changeover with adjustable height stands for different container heights and diameters
  • Achieve easier cleaning and maintenance with removable belt and rails that disconnect easily without tools
  • Accurate fills guaranteed with pneumatic indexing cylinders that position the container under the filler
  • An adjustable speed drive offers the ultimate flexibility and timing controls are readily accessible
  • Integrates with Spee-Dee’s volumetric cup fillers
