Packing pasta with ultrasonics

Spaghetti is typically packed in horizontal packaging machines. It is becoming ever more common for pasta to be cut into equal lengths and pre-proportioned with ultrasonic sonotrodes after it has been dried. In the next process step it arrives on a conveyor belt and is packed in a tubular bag.
