Automatic Lidder: Lidding Equipment

The HART Design & Manufacturing servo-operated lidder automatically forms and applies lids to product-filled trays to swiftly and reliably complete your food packaging process. It’s constructed from polished stainless steel to ensure reliability and hygienic conditions to satisfy your packaging requirements.

Streamline Your Filling Process

The HART lidder uses a reciprocating pick-and-place assembly to pick paperboard lid blanks from magazines via vacuum cups and places them on reciprocating shuttles. Hot melt adhesive is applied to the lid blank flaps as they are shuttled to the forming section.

Product filled trays are staged on the infeed conveyors and automatically fed into the elevator section. The product trays are elevated and come in contact with glued lid banks and are pushed into the forming sections. The glued lid flaps are folded around trays in the forming section and held in the forming cavities for one machine cycle to allow the hot melt adhesive to solidify. During the next machine cycle, lidded packages are elevated out of the forming section and to the discharge conveyor elevation by the upstream packages.

Finished packages are advanced forward by continuous motion sweep arms and transferred onto a single lane discharge conveyor.
