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.

Up to 120 products can be processed within a minute with only four operators involved, thanks to the extensive module system.
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.
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.
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.
Firstly, the products arrive onto the main product conveyor one by one in 1, 2 or more lanes.
Then the product is passed through 3D dimension recognition and weight calculation unit.
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.
