Stainless Double Hopper with conveyor & settable unit counter.
To create a conveyor that would sort, count and bag perogies, decreasing manual labor from 5 workers down to 2 workers while increasing production and decreasing miscounts in the food packaging process.
To separate, count and bag perogies (food item)
SOLUTION & RESULTS:
