They then move into ten lanes on another two vibratory linear feeders which provide a continuous feed to the third part which is a pneumatic pick and place unit with a vision system set to operate when a cake passes under the machine. The entire automated system requires a human only for loading the hoppers with product when the machine indicates it is running low.

Despite the irregular shape of the eggs the system is very tolerant and can accept an egg to place onto the cake at any position.
