Some Tools of the Trade: Industrial Equipment for Capping and Bottle Filling
Maybe you have viewed movies that have montages of robotic devices that assemble and package a product in a step-by-step fashion. These montages happen to be more accurate than what viewers might think, though they are extremely stylized to look more interesting. In real life, assembling and packaging machinery are rather intriguing as they mass produce identical products, particularly bottles. These packaging equipment are required in the cosmetics, food processing; and wine and beverage businesses.
Most of these equipment are made with stainless steel frames to keep them from rusting and from damaging the materials being created. There are also contact parts made of titanium, plastic, or corrosion-resistant "super alloys" which are manufactured with chromium, iron, copper, aluminum, and tungsten. The metal and plastic parts are effortless to clean, which assists in work processes as no work is delayed from cleaning the said components.
Vessels and jars need heavy-duty yet precise machines to fill them carefully. There are many kinds of filling machines depending on the floor design of the manufacturing plant. The most familiar ones commonly appear in movies in the said montages—the in-line liquid fillers that fill vessels in a straight row. These are efficient for bigger businesses with enough area to spare.
There are also rotary filling machinery that fill vessels in circular lines. They are good for water supply businesses that are just starting out in their particular counties. They are also ideal for smaller-sized franchises of bigger corporations. The space-saving design of these rotary filling machines allows for increased manufacture.
There are also piston filling stations that can fill containers with viscous substances like those used in cosmetics. These are designed to quickly fill the vessels with products that would take longer to transfer manually. A number of drinks can also be filled through these liquid fillers.
A packaging equipment manufacturer can make several kinds of machines. These can be operated with gravity, pressure, and vacuum, or a combination of pressure and gravity, or gravity and vacuum. These are supported with nozzles built for specific forms of machines—even those that handle substances that can corrode some materials over time. These nozzles are made according to the amount of force they undergo per process.
Capping containers and jars should be precise, so there are machines known as cappers. Cappers are built in a way like creating fillers. Like the fillers, cappers are built with stainless steel framing and mechanical elements that work quick and reliably. The parts are adjustable and do not need changing if the machine must cap different types of containers. Similar to some fillers, the cappers can be fully automated with touch screen gearshifts.
