Some Scoop Feeder Dropper Machines sorts, feeds, and drops scoops into empty upside-down cans or filled containers.

Other Scoop Feeder Placer Machines sorts, feeds, and places scoops into filled containers, then compresses them below the container neck for sealing without concerns of dust or protruding scoops.

Some designs can accommodate any scoop shape, be it spoon or flat disk, and insert it into various containers. There’s also a centrifugal scoop feeder system that drops scoops into a hopper. These are then lifted by an inclined waterfall-type feeder to a sorter for orientation. Maintaining this orientation, the scoops move through a tunnel and into individual containers or cans. A sensor checks for container / can presence, activating or deactivating the feeder as needed.

There’s also a turret type design for inserting dosing scoops into containers with powdered food. Special grippers center the scoop in the container and embed it into the product. Another turret variant is tailored for pre-threaded plastic caps, with features for quick torque adjustment and specialized grippers for larger capsules.

A vibratory bowl feeder design can accommodate plastic scoops. Adjustable to fit all different scoop sizes, it’s constructed from high-quality stainless steel. It has a unique bowl design, ensuring precise orientation and high-speed feeding of up to 60 scoops per minute.
