Paint is any pigmented liquid, liquefiable, or solid mastic composition that, after application to a substrate in a thin layer, converts to a solid film. It is most commonly used to protect, color, or provide texture to objects. Paint can be made or purchased in many colors—and in many different types, such as watercolor or synthetic.
Paint is one of the many products that VKPAK’s reliable products are able to fill and package. Apart from paint filling equipment, other types of machines are available to maintain efficiency and accuracy from the beginning of the packaging process to the end. We can help you determine which system of equipment will work best with your paint filling and packaging processes, helping you get the results you want from your production line.
Using Paint Filling Machines to Increase Efficiency and Profitability
Liquid fillers are integral to liquid packaging lines, with automated models capable of maximizing efficiency. Without this equipment, the filling process wouldn’t be reliable enough to ensure that no product loss occurs because of inaccurate fill levels.
Technological developments that are creating more automation and computerizing many of the components in filling machines have made them more dependable than ever before, with many of the best models designed to allow for full customization and user friendliness.
Types of Liquid Fillers
Paint and other similar types of liquids are designed to cling to surfaces, and as a result, are highly viscous. Their thickness makes it necessary to use liquid fillers and other packaging machines that are designed to handle and efficiently package these products while resisting their effects. The use of appropriate liquid filling machines will prevent build up and other types of compromises during the packaging process.
Facilities will want to utilize machines that are specifically intended for the filling of products such as indoor paint, exterior paint, paint thinners, printing ink, adhesives, lacquer, solvents and cleaning chemicals.
Weigh Filling Machine
One type of liquid filler that can meet the needs of the paint and coatings industry is the net weigh filling machine. Designed to handle products of low to high viscosity, net weigh fillers are ideal for filling liquids in bulk quantities, such as 5-gallon pails, with consistent weight levels for each container.
These fillers can fill many different types and sizes of containers, with many of the top models capable of lasting for many years.
Rotary Lobe Pump Filling Machine
Many pump filling machines are also designed to handle liquid products of varying viscosities, including many thicker liquids. Like net weigh fillers, they can also fill containers of many different size and shape specifications, making them ideal for bulk quantities of paint and coating products.
Volumetric Piston Filling Machine
Another type of liquid filler that paint and coating products can benefit from is a volumetric piston filler, which is great for thick products. Using a customized piston filler, liquid packaging lines can keep the filling process consistently efficient.
Safety Measures in the Paint Packaging Process
Most paint products are highly flammable liquids, requiring filling equipment and processes that prevent combustion, along with proper sealing techniques and reliable materials that will prevent leakage and present a potential fire hazard.
Liquid paints can include a variety of products, including paint, lacquer, stain, varnish, enamel, liquid filler, liquid lacquer base and shellac solutions. Other paint-related materials could include paint thinners, dryers, removers or reduction compounds. All of these and other flammable liquids will require packaging machines (including fillers) that can safely handle these products.
Many solvent-based paint products are also highly toxic and can present a health hazard due to fumes, which packaging systems can prevent with sufficient sealing materials and equipment.
Packaging machines for paints should ultimately keep the entire process safe while properly packaging all products to prepare them for transportation and a long shelf life.
One of the best ways to determine the types of safety hazards that paint products pose is to review the supplier’s Safety Data Sheet. Suppliers can also provide additional details about chemical properties and potential hazards.
Cappers can also come with certain accessories to further improve efficiency, including cap elevators, sorters and pre-feeders.
Paint labeling machine, usually choose the following equipment, the specific machine selection needs to be based on the shape of the container, the size of the container, label size to decide.
Our machines are the most practical and flexible solution to package any kind of nail polish or painting product. Our machines are known for their simplicity, speed and are easy to clean. But above all, our machines are resistant and made of high quality materials in order to fill paints into the packaging type you desire. We offer specific gaskets resistant to any kind of chemical treatment. The dosing machine is designed to be incredibly accurate and does not waste product.
Install A System Of Paint Filling Machines
Paint is one of the thicker liquid products that VKPAK's state-of-the-art equipment is capable of handling. Our paint filling machines are among the most reliable, and we also offer a range of other equipment to complete your production line beyond the filling process. If you're unsure of what you need, we can help you decide which configuration of equipment is right for your application.
Following the completion of the filling process, capping machines are used to fit paint containers with custom-made caps. Labeling machines can print and apply labels with unique branding, text, and images. A complete system of conveyors can transport products throughout the entire packaging process, from filling to sealing. A combination of VKPAK's equipment can help extend the life of you production facility by years.
