These Filler Improvements Save Time and Money

filling machineryCreating 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.

Vacuum Tooling
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.

Split Hopper
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.

Rapid Disconnect
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!


Aircraft manufacturing comprises of the assembly of are six main sub assemblies: fuselage, tail, wings,landing gear assembly, power plant and flight control systems. The materials used include aluminum sheet, billet, castings. Composites such as carbon epoxies, graphite, fiberglass, carbon fiber reinforced plastics, titanium, stainless steel and magnesium castings.

Like other manufacturing process aircraft manufacturing has various health implications:

  • Heated materials from heat-treated metals, welded surfaces, boiling rinses can lead to burns, keloid formation, and pigmentation changes.
  • Working in confined spaces in the aircraft’s fuel cells and wings can bring about oxygen deprivation, which can eventually lead to entrapment, narcosis and anxiety.
  • Lifting and carrying of heavy hand tools predisposes the employees to excess fatigue, musculoskeletal injuries, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Aircraft manufacturingThe sharp objects used in the assembling process for instance, knives, drill bits, router and saw blade can accidentally cause lacerations, and puncture wounds. Moving machinery in the factory may cause crushing injuries resulting in amputations

Airborne fragments produced from drilling and sawing during the assembly can easily enter the eye causing corneal abrasions. Particulate matter from the factories is strongly associated with a wide range of symptoms such as coughs, colds, phlegm, chest pain bronchitis,sinusitis, emphysema and loss of lung efficiency.

Noise is not just annoyance. It damages health, detracts significantly from the quality of life. It can ultimately lead to hearing impairment, interference with communication and speech perception and sleep disturbance.

Recent research shows that there is no clear evidence that occupational exposures at the aircraft manufacturing factory results in increases in the risk of death from cancer or other disease the prevalence of cancer among aircraft manufacturing workers is generally at or below expected levels.

Airplane manufacturing thereby requires one to have the right protective gears, without which the employees can experiences serious negative health effects.
