Traditional packaged food takes many forms from spices to paperboard, metal and glass. Conveyer control and product flow and handling are critical in a high speed production environment. We are often asked to build in additional instrumentation to serve the varied needs of food packaging.
Hegwood Automation and Controls has many years of experience in the food processing industry. These environments are very hard on equipment with high temperature, chemical, and washdowns occurring often. This expertise helps us deal with a multitude of different applications requiring rugged, quality control panels.
From personal care to beauty and other consumer goods, Hegwood has experience working with the range of packaging media and forms. Many consumer products have a two-step packaging process that requires thoughtful planning and design to efficiently move them from production to the warehouse floor.
