Improved hygiene, higher efficiency, greater throughput and reduced production costs are benefits producers can expect from the new Compact-Loader introduced at Process Expo by Weber, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-speed slicing equipment.

The fully automatic infeeding provided by the Compact-Loader eliminates human contact with sliced and portioned products during processing, effectively blocking one source of possible contamination.

Innovative design features also contribute to hygienic operation and shorten the time required for thorough sanitation of Weber’s new Compact-Loader. Important components of the infeeder are structured to comfortably move backwards, out of the way, for easy and optimal cleaning.

When combined with a Weber slicer, the new Compact-Loader is conveniently controlled through the slicer’s touch screen, resulting in operator ease and greater throughput. The small footprint of the combined system saves valuable production space.

The modular design of Weber’s new Compact Loader is both hygienic and extendable to precisely fit user needs. Available options include a line divider, as well as up to four grouping conveyors and four buffer conveyors. Highest quality materials and rugged construction assure long, trouble-free life.

Weber manufactures a complete line of high-tech slicing machinery, as well as a wide variety of skinners, derinders and ice machines. Founded in 1981, Weber operates three manufacturing facilities in Germany, as well as the North American Technology Center and demonstration facility in Kansas City, Mo.
