Emerald offers automatic foil overwrapping equipment for baked potatoes that runs at rates up to 40 per minute. The AF-40 potato wrapper uses a patented belt design to wrap potatoes in aluminum foil, using rolls of foil rather than individual sheets. Product is brought in via a servo-operated roller infeed and dropped softly into catch gates. A photoelectric eye triggers the servo-driven plunger to gently drive the product through the pre-cut foil and into the wrapping belts before depositing the wrapped product onto the discharge conveyor.
