Cream/Lotion/Paste Filling

Cream/Lotion/Paste Filling

 

The empty tubes are first loaded in the cassette, which then travels through the guides to be held in thefeeder by vacuum.
 The tube is then fed into the tube holder by the feeder.
 The tube holders are fitted on the circular turret which intermittently takes the tube to all the stations.
 The tube then passes through the centering station which presses the tube from top and lodges it into the
tube holder.
 It then travels to the orientation station for positioning the ‘I’ mark. Here the tube is lifted and revolved.
The moment the ‘I’ mark comes in front of the scanner, the tube stops revolving and comes down.
 It is then carried to the filling station where the dosing action of the piston in the cylinder forces out the
required volume of material through the hose pipe onto the suck back device and then from the nozzle
into the tube.
 The tube then travels through the individual pressing, crimping and coding stations after which it is
ejected out at the ejecting station.
 In case of lami/plastic tubes, after the filling station, the tube travels to the hot air blowing station where
hot air is blown onto the inside of the end of the tube by a nozzle having holes on its periphery.
 The tube then goes to the sealing station where the tube is pressed and sealed. It then travels to the dual
coding & trimming station where the tube is first coded with metal stereos on the seal and the irregular
shape at the tube end is trimmed by a set of blades.
 It is then ejected out at the next station.
Automatic Tube Filling Machines fill ointment/cream in cylindrical aluminium collapsible/ lami/ coextruded
plastic tubes and close it absolutely safely and symmetrically.
No tube - No fill device which makes sure that filling does not take place if tube is not present at the filling
station.
 At the orientation station, when the tube is lifted, its presence is checked by a sensor and this signal is relayed
to the filling station. Hence if a tube is not there, the dosing action does not take place and hence there is no fill.
 If the tube is not ejected out by the ejector, the machine stops in order to avoid damages.
 In case of any jamming on the indexing system, to avoid breakages, the load is sensed by the variable drive
through the PLC & the machine stops automatically.
 Blow off device and tail cutting arrangements to avoid the paste / cream touching the sealing portion of the
tube.
 Over load clutch to protect the indexer and all the related shafts rods etc.
 Solid state no tubes no fill device mechanism.
 Tube holders are of spring loaded type to take care of any tube diameter variation.
 Over load clutch to protect the indexer and all the related shafts rods etc.
 Audiovisual Alarm Annunciation System for any abnormal conditions of the machine.
