Enhance your packaging system with the correct bucket elevator


Published on August 23, 2017

Efficiently packaging your products is one of the most important parts of any business. A good automated packaging system saves you from putting in a lot of labor and gets your product packaged up quickly and neatly to keep up with demand. In order to keep the system running properly and at the right speed, you have to make sure each subsystem and component is always in excellent working order. This also means you have to make sure you have just the right components for your product and the packaging system it requires.

In some cases, you will need a specific type of bucket elevator.

What is A Bucket Elevator?

A bucket elevator is a machine that is used to transport product to the packaging area. It is similar to a conveyor belt, but the items are carried in a bucket, which then rotates and deposits them in the next step in the process – likely a weigher. They are available in several sizes and individual varieties, so it is important to do your research and figure out which bucket elevator is the right choice for your system and the product you will use it for.

Where to Find the Best Bucket Elevators

You need your bucket elevators produced from high quality products so they are extremely durable and guaranteed to last for a long time. The components of the bucket elevators are made out of stainless steel, meaning they are strong and will not rust. Your bucket elevator will also be easy to keep clean and sanitized, as well as easy to operate.
