Flexilink: a reliable system for tray handling

Tray based transfer machine Flexilink

Flexilink is a tray based linking system to transfer products from maker to packer, with maximum product care.

Flexilink consists of the FTF tray filler, the Taurus tray unloader and the linking system.

Controlled flow to the tray

The control system allows adjusting the filling speed to the efficiency of the production. When maker and packer are working at the same speed, products will be transferred directly via the mass flow conveyor. In case the productivity of the maker is higher than the packer, cigarettes, cigars or filter rods will be fed into trays by the FTF.  At the top of the hopper, a follow up system is fitted to control the flow to the tray. The hopper acts as a reservoir during tray changes. The full tray elevator can be equipped with either 1 shelf or 2 shelves depending on the maker speed.

All standard trays available on the market can be used.
