Creating the ultimate filling technology is complex. Filling machines don’t just need to fill bottles of soda and milk, but they need to remain fast, reliable, and affordable. This means that the right fillers should enable fast changeovers, be easy to clean, and improve overall profitability due to their efficiency. There are a few new filling machine technology improvements that can help companies maintain and even improve their bottom line.
Product giveaway doesn’t have to be a fact of life! Vacuum tooling allows you to improve profitability by cleanly cutting product flow to avoid unwanted messes, loss of product, and more. This technology means that you no longer have to endure drips or stringing between each revolution, and forget about that powder filling. It also is a vast improvement over net weigh filling machines that were commonly used previously.
Vacuum tooling works using a central funnel placed inside of an outer vacuum funnel. Together, the system stops product flow through a mesh screen.
If you’ve ever needed to work your way inside of a hopper to clean or make replacements, then you know it’s a miserable job. Split hopper technology provides a design that offers stress-free access to the most important parts of your machine. With this, you can clean effortlessly, make necessary repairs quickly, and move on with your day.
Since the hopper is created with FDA-compliant, food-grade material, it remains lightweight, easy to install, versatile, and safe.
Ever struggle with screws that were determined to stay put, exactly where they were? Well, this quick disconnect screw technology is a sliding key that is similar to quick-disconnects on drills and other hardware tools. You can use this screw to quickly remove the augor and clean thoroughly or switch screws to accommodate a new product set-up.
Technology is a beautiful thing, especially when it can make filling lines and capping machines work to the best of their ability, and make your job considerably easier!
