As demand for a product reaches a certain level, almost all packagers will move to some level of automation to more quickly produce finished product for their customers. With many machinery manufacturers to choose from, picking equipment from different companies can be an ominous task. For that reason, VKPAK offers a number of complete filling lines from which to start, focusing on different industries and different levels of automation.
Industrial filling equipment solutions are used to package a measured mass or volume of a product, at the end of a production line, into a packaging container suitable for the product. The choice of filling system or filling line depends on the physical state of the product, the packaging container of choice, the desired mass or volume per container, the required production volume, and considerations of sterilization and safety. VKPAK mainly offers filling lines for liquid bottles.
Filling is a delicate part of packaging liquids and other substances. It can be performed in different ways based on the type of beverage or substance to be packaged, and on the packaging type being used (PET or glass bottles, cans etc.). Filling lines are made up of several phases in which machines are used for very specific purposes. The most important are the following:
- Bottle Unscrambler Machines
- Bottle Washers/Rinsers
- Liquid Filling Machines
- Capping Machines
- Labeling Machines
An important process that goes hand in hand when using liquid filling lines is the use of packaging equipment. This is of course due to the fact that the filling machine or semi automatic liquid filler requires packaging to contain the bottle filling. Piston fillers are often used in the production of beverages and cosmetics. Usually a filling line or machine has the ability to fill a wide variety of products. The only aspect that needs to be changes is generally the nozzle, depending on product you wish to make.
The above shows some of our filling line videos, We design, manufacture and install complete liquid filling production lines, according your specific request. VKPAK is the leading provider of inline filling lines and liquid packaging machinery, offering a wide variety of fillers, cappers, labelers with semi-automatic and fully automatic functions. We have both gravimetric and volumetric liquid filling machines available for various industries from food and beverage production to industrial and corrosive product production.
Finding a Complete Packaging Solution for Your Industry
While a variety of different packaging machinery can be found in the same industry, as products, bottles and other components can widely differ even in the same industry, there are certain machines that are seen more in specific industries than other machines.
For example, a basic automated system for thin cleaners and chemicals includes the following:
- Turntable for Loading Bottles
- Automatic Gravity Filling Machine
- Automatic Chuck Capper
- Front, Back and Wrap Labeling Machine
For many packagers running cleaners and chemicals with a low viscosity, these machines may make up their packaging system. However, for others there may be some modification. If a packager is running a non-round bottle, for example, the loading turntable may be replaced by a laning or loading conveyor, which is a more efficient and reliable way to get non-round containers on to the main packaging system. In addition, other filling machines, such as the overflow filler, can also handle thin viscosity products as well, so that the gravity filler will not be the only liquid filler used in the industry.
Additional machinery such as induction aluminium foil sealing machine, shrink wrappers, packing equipment or even custom machinery may also be added to the line to meet certain needs that may not be necessary on every line.
Modifications or variations of the complete filling lines for the specific industries listed on our website will be the rule rather than the exception, as each packager's project will be unique in some way! And if you do not see your own, or a closely related, industry listed, contact VKPAK to discuss the different options available for your products!
Whether you need an additional liquid filling machine to complete your filling systems or require a variety of filling machinery, including bottle labeling machines, to facilitate a new or moved packaging line, you can rely on VKPAK to provide you with efficient filling equipment that can give you the results you want.
