New fill-by-weight clamshell filler for blueberries to be displayed at PMA Fresh Summit

Lakewood’s newest 12-head weigh-filling clamshell filler, the EZ Fill, is now available through the Michigan based packing equipment manufacturer. The machine has been designed to offer blueberry growers a machine tailored specifically to them using the input of existing blueberry-packing customers as the basis for the overall machine design and specific features.

The EZ Fill is a stripped down version of the company’s previous weigh-fillers with a simplified user interface, minimized drop heights, a new dribble-gate system, designed specifically for an increased level of accuracy in container weights with blueberries, and an improved weigh-bucket apparatus for quicker unloading and faster production rates.

Along with the machine’s newly designed blueberry-specific features, the EZ Fill includes Lakewood’s patent-pending Wedge Wheel Clamshell Denester, guaranteeing fewer doubles when denesting, and includes 3 dump funnel cartridges, allowing you to pack different sized clamshells or punnets without the use of secondary transport conveyors, making the container changeover process tool free, fast, and very user-friendly.

The EZ fill is designed to fill any hinged clamshell or punnet from 4.4oz up to 4lbs and will fit a wide variety of different container footprints.

Lakewood will have the machine on display at this year’s PMA Fresh Summit in Anaheim, California at Booth # 1486.
