KA-19-010 – Kinesys Automation has developed its latest addition to flexible filling, highlighting the versatility of filling and processing multiple size pails. Using a standalone filler featuring interchangeable pressure plates and fill valves, with a standalone pail inverter and a fully pneumatic standalone lid crimper, Kinesys Automation has once again demonstrated the benefits of modular automation.
This specially designed filler used a servo-pneumatic system to lower a plate into an empty pail. The pressure of the product flowing into the pail will then raise the plate to a calculated height determined by the volume. The pressure and volume can be set through the HMI and saved into recipes for different filling configurations.
