Thomas Packaging Slat Filler Control System Retrofit

Extend the life of your filling line with a slat filler control system upgrade. Older slat fillers often work well and only need some changes to bring them to modern standards. Some machines may need to be mechanically rebuilt or might need a new conveyor. Others might work mechanically but have obsolete controls. Others need small updates like slat vibration or or static elimination. Thomas Packaging can retrofit your current slat filler with these options to update it. Retrofits like these can be less expensive than buying a new filler. Modernize your slat filler controls and solve your documentation and validation problems once and for all.

You can also add an inspection systems, like our SureCount, to eliminate short counts, as part of a slat filler control system retrofit. Check out our SureCount inspection system page for more information.
