Hopper elevators

Food grade hopper elevators enables easy and hygienic product conveying to the demanded process.


Hopper elevator is widely used for various processing solutions to lift the product to specific height and use gravity to transport the product through the processing unit.

The main applications of different hopper elevators types include fish or other product grading, nobbing, filleting and others.

The tank volume and lifting belt dimensions can be ordered in large variety depending on the processing needs.

Product is delivered to the hopper elevator tank with forklift by tipping the container above it or use of container tipping equipment. To maintain continuous flow of product, the tank must be filled and maintained with product to a specific level.

The belt with adjustable speed drive lifts the product to needed height and gently delivers it to the next processing unit.

All features & benefits

Extensive module system

Faster production time

Up to 120 products can be processed within a minute with only four operators involved, thanks to the extensive module system.

compact and clever design

Compact size

The unique design allows for the equipment size to be one of the most compact in the market – the machine takes only 6100 x 1750 mm of floorspace! Beyond the dimensions, the thoughtful design allows for highly efficient use of space in smaller factories and various production lines with previously limited capacity.

3D RECOGNITION & weight calculation unit

Reduced giveaway

Precise calculators in our 3D dimension recognition and weight calculation unit reduce the giveaway of the product and increase the line capacity. The final weight range in packaging and current line setup can be adjusted in a smart, easy-to-use interface. 

Adaptable functionality

Fit for various products

The easy-to-use, intuitive user interface allows for the weight range to be adjusted, and this machine can be adapted for various products ranging from fresh or frozen meat and fish to vegetables and fruit.

How it works

Step #1

Arrival on product conveyor

Firstly, the products arrive onto the main product conveyor one by one in 1, 2 or more lanes.

Step #2

Passing through 3D recognition unit

Then the product is passed through 3D dimension recognition and weight calculation unit.

Step #3

Product placement into a tray or box

The program sends a signal to the robot with appropriate gripper to pick up and place the product into a tray or box to reach a set final weight range in packaging that can be adjusted in the user interface.
