Decades of experience with innovative technology and also considering market requirements guarantee the successful implementation of your requests.
Let us help you fill your cans
Whenever cans need to be filled, the use of filling machines is inevitable. Decide for a turnkey can filling solution – individually matched to your operating sequences:
- Can filler for individual containers
- Pre-configured can filling stations
- Automatic can filling machines
- Automatic can fillers
At your request, we will deliver a complete turnkey solution comprising everything from the machine-aided unloading of the empty containers from the truck to the palletising of full cans and load securing.
SAFETY - ACCURACY - FLEXIBILITY
Reproducible accuracy as well as a high degree of safety during product filling are fundamental requirements which have to be met by can filling machines that satisfy the highest quality standards.
Irrespective whether your products are uncritical, foaming, explosive or flammable commodities, Feige FILLING as specialist for can filling machines will make available appropriate filling technologies. All automatic can fillers have a standardised working principle. Whether individually or arranged on a pallet, the cans reach the automatic filler empty and clean and leave it filled with calibrated accuracy, clean and closed.
Central components of the can filling machine are filling valve and weigh scale. The filling operation takes place using the time-tested coarse/fine fill process. In order to observe the calibration error limits, it is necessary to restrict the volume flow towards the end of the filling process. This necessitates a two-stage or analogue adjustment of the filling valve opening.
Can filling - safely
With the Feige filling valve, you fill your liquid and viscous products with a proportional or multi-stage dosing system. The filling valve is dimensioned in accordance with your requirements on filling opening, viscosity and volume flow. Resistant materials such as stainless steel, Teflon, Hastelloy, titanium, nickel, PVDF and PTFE guarantee the reliable use of the filling valve. Depending on the area of application, you can also resort to filling valves of hygenic design, heated and with overfill protection. To enable you to change the filling valve within seconds during operation, a stainless steel quick-action filling valve mount is a standard feature.
The filling valves are equipped with important safety functions such as:
- Closing / opening with compressed air
- Closing with spring force
- Relieved of product pressure
- Leakage monitoring of the sealing space
- Fill level check
- Minimum dead space
Measuring the can filling with calibrated accuracy
The Feige weigh scale terminal is the heart of the equipment. Measuring the dosed filling volumes with calibrated accuracy is carried out with mass flowmeters (minimum filling volume and filling tolerance) or load cells (maximum weight), which are integrated in the can filling machine as a system approved for verification. Safety mechanisms assume the control of all important parameters.
You operate the weigh scale terminal via discrete elements or a touch panel with alphanumerical input. The weigh scale records your operating data, logs the weighing results and puts statistical data at your disposal. The system communicates with your network or outputs the data on a mobile USB flash drive.
HIGHLY INTEGRATED POWERFUL AUTOMATIC CAN FILLING MACHINE
You want a maximum in performance and availability? And at the same time, you want an automatic can filling machine that is open to integrate your individual ideas of transport systems and storage technology? Then Feige FILLING is the right address for you.
You can start up the can filling machine immediately after installation. For an easy and safe handling, the menu-guided system control via touch panel will provide you with information about all operating modes and possible error messages of the equipment. During the filling operation, the work stations positioning, opening, pre-filling and final filling as well as closing are passed through in the fully equipped automatic machines. Depending on the equipment, the cans can be fed open, with screw cap or with dust cap and after filling be closed with a pushin cap or a screw cap.
Automatically filled can
Pre-configured and pre-installed compact can filling machines can be selected from two different product lines. These automatic systems are equipped with specific characteristics to handle specific filling products or special types of environment according to your requirements.
The Compact Line can fillers as highly integrated powerful automatic machines are designed for the ergonomic operation by one operator. To increase the performance, the automatic can filler can at any time be supplemented by a can filling station, cap and plug sorting pot or by a palletising aid or palletising robot.
It goes without saying that all subsidiary work steps such as marking, labelling, printing, inerting and leakage tests can be integrated into the automatic operating sequence.
The Advanced Line is characterised by a multitude of functions which leave nothing to be desired. The integrated push-bar chain conveyor, which transports the containers in cycled operation and with millimetric accuracy underneath the work stations, takes up a central function.
All container and filling parameters can be centrally set via a central touch panel with integrated scale display. This is also optionally used for communication and data exchange with control systems provided by the customer.
An appealing safety casing rounds off the compact design of the automatic can filling machine. It can also be used with highest operating safety in potentially explosive atmospheres and considerably improves the efficiency during the production process.
VERSATILE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR REQUIREMENTS
You decide on the degree of automation. Compile your semi-automatic can filling machine according to your individual requirements for the calibrated can filling for foaming, combustible or uncritical products from the Feige FILLING modular system. Select the machine that fits best with your type of filling – from simple "just fill" can filling to the customised filling process. The Feige FILLING equipment will support you during the entire filling process.
Accelerate your can filling processes
The three can filling product lines of Feige FILLING offer you all the functions of a gravimetric filler, ranging from the reasonably priced product line "Slim Line" and the pre-configured filling station "Compact Line" to the can filling system "Advanced Line" with versatile additional modules.
The systems convince by their ease of operation and installation. Depending on the application, they are also available in mobile designs conforming to ATEX requirements. All main functions of a gravimetric filler are executed in time-tested Feige quality.
You can extend the sturdy basic design of Feige FILLING systems at any time by an extensive selection of important accessories, which integrate further working steps such as discharging the containers, gas extraction and many others.
Can filling machines and further options
The individual containers are positioned below the filling valve, automatically filled with calibrated accuracy and manually closed. The can filling machines automatically process plastic and metal containers. A stainless steel design is also available for the food industry.
Another option is available with the Feige palletising systems. After the filling operation, the filled cans can be palletised. Empty containers that are already palletised prior to filling are consecutively filled on the pallet after the filling valve has been manually positioned over the can's bunghole. After actuating the start button, the container is automatically tared and filled with calibrated accuracy using the coarse/fine fill process. The necessary auxiliary tools for the correct capping of the cans are made available to you.
