With the deadline for the Small Businesses Jobs Act of 2011, Section 179 quickly approaching, Unifiller Systems reminds all qualifying American businesses, to act fast.

One of the great advantages to Section 179 is that equipment that was once financially unfeasible can now be purchased and put into production in 2011 to significantly impact tax savings, labor costs and the overall bottom line. Qualifying businesses can now expense up to $500,000 of equipment purchased and put into service before December 31, 2011.*

In choosing a machine for the deduction, business owners should consider Unifiller’s Hopper Topper (HT). The HT is a unique product transfer system that is specifically designed for the baking and food industry. It provides an innovative solution to the many challenges faced by small to mid size bakery and food producers today.

1.    Challenge: Fluctuating Deposit Weights

Solution: Precise Portion Control – Equipped with an optic product sensor, the HT maintains precise hopper levels which help eliminate fluctuating deposit weights.

2. Challenge: Rising Ingredient Costs

Solution: Reduce Product Waste - By ensuring depositing accuracy and consistency, producers can streamline and control their ingredient costs. Additionally, the HT is gentle on all types of product since the pumps are designed to simulate hand scooping which doesn’t compromise the integrity of your product.

3. Challenge: Refilling Your Hoppers

Solution: Efficient Use of Production Time - When used correctly, a HT can keep production running smoothly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This way, teams are focused on other production activities. Additionally the HT is much faster than hand scooping.

4. Challenge: Workplace Injuries

Solution: Ergonomics & Safety - A HT offers ergonomic advantage by completely bypassing the risk of physical strain that come from the heavy lifting of bowls. The standard HT has a unique tilt mechanism that allows for easy changing of mixing bowls. Alternatively, the Powerlift HT allows producers to quickly lower or raise the HT as needed.

Other benefits of the hopper topper include:

Quick assembly and tool free disassembly for easy clean up
A flow control to adjust pump speed for different types of products
Optic product sensor that monitors and maintains precise hopper level

Common Applications include: Batter for cakes, muffins, filling for pies and pastries, icings, frostings & toppings, jams and jellies, creams, custards and mousse.
