Making a Food Packaging Machine

Our Solution:

ASM has designed a machine for manufacturing animal food products (“Chews”) for one of the largest veterinary laboratories in the world located in Carros. The main challenges of this project were related to the product itself. At the end of the food extruder, the viscosity and changing temperature of the product made detection and handling of the product difficult. Indeed, its composition based on natural ingredients caused dispersion in the humidity of the product, thus impacting its mechanical and thermal characteristics. It is thanks to feedback acquired on other ASM projects that its technicians and engineers have succeeded in overcoming this problem.

Technical Characteristics of Food Packaging:

  • Extrusion, cutting, weighing, cooling and packaging of animal food products
  • Complete management of animal health issues and agri-food standards
  • Integration of Allen-Bradley PLCs
  • Rate of 3000 to 6000 parts per hour

ASM has designed and installed more than 300 production machines. Here are some examples of achievements that might interest you:
