Semi-automatic product loader

Product Overview

There a many ways to pack fresh red meat, including loading horns, pneumatic stuffers, gravity feeders and more. Each of these have advantages and disadvantages.

Moda Loader was developed to satisfy our customers’ need for a fast and efficient packaging method that had the speed of a pneumatic stuffer, but with the flexibility to run many different sizes of product, with a gentler action that decreased leakers.

The adjustable servo-driven loading fingers can support a full range of products down the same line, from a bone-in chuck or whole pork middle, down to a tenderloin.

Allen Bradley/Rockwell automation controls including 3 servos provide precise motion control, and form the intuitive touch-screen HMI, operators can configure the action of the machine to suit their preference or the product mix. They can select from constant motion, a defined pause or knee-switch product release.

Operators also enjoy the quiet action of Moda Loader compared to the repetitive noise of a pneumatic stuffer.

Like all Moda machines, Moda Loader has a sanitary, easy clean T304 stainless design and our industry-leading 2-year electrical warranty.
