Launcher Style Autoloaders

Collator Style Loaders

Collator style loaders are manufactured to accommodate frankfurters, sausages, vienna sausages, snack sticks, pickles, and other products. Drake’s innovative engineering department addresses space and speed requirements for each machine. Customized models enable flexible film, can, tray, box, and jar loading. Versatile modular heads offer quick changeover time for individual packaging applications.

Robotic Loaders

Firm to soft, multi-diameter product is gently transported and placed into packaging. Drake Robotics provide loading solutions for products like natural casing sausage that may be damaged using traditional mechanical methods. High speed EOAT (end of arm tooling) has a 3kg payload with high quality surfaces and food grade lubrication. This tooling accommodates product variation such as curvature and a variety of consistencies.
