The most important piece of the entire bottling line is without a doubt the Bottle filling Machine. This component is the only machine that has direct contact with the finished product and must therefore ensure maximum reliability in terms of hygiene and quality of the end product. This means preserving it’s the product’s characteristics during the filling phase and being easy to clean or when in contact with products that are particularly sensitive to contamination, being easily sterilized.

 

During the filling phase, liquid products to be packaged can be foamy, dense, creamy, fluid, powder or granules. They are delivered in special package types such as bottles, vials, pots, jars, cans, tanks, buckets, tins, bags, sacks or bag-in-boxes.

 

There are different filling processes (negative pressure, gravity, isobaric) that utilize different types of fillers, including volumetric fillers with batching syringes, gravity fillers with electronic or mechanical weighing units, and negative pressure fillers at constant levels (suitable only for very rigid recipients). The machines are set and calibrated to help ensure flawless operation and exceptional precision.

 

Frequently, new juice bar or wholesale juice business owners ask about investing in an automated bottle filler. I purchased a two-head, table-top bottle filler for our juicing kitchen a while ago to stock it as part of our product line. After some time I learned that it probably doesn’t make sense for a small juice business to invest in a bottle filler until you’re filling thousands of bottles per day. I’ll explain why below. If you’ve had a different experience, let our readers know in the comments.

 

Labour Cost

Intuitively, one would think that labour costs go down after implementing a bottle-filling machine. I was surprised to learn that that’s most likely not the case for a small operation. The small bottle fillers are of the “semi-automatic” type. The user stands near the filler, manually places bottles under the spouts, and presses a foot pedal to initiate the filling process. The filling machine then fills the bottles. Once the process is done, the user moves the full bottles to the side and puts new bottles under the spouts and starts the process again.

Essentially what this means is that you still need a person working full-time to fill bottles, and it isn’t going to be much (if at all) faster. A skilled employee can fill hundreds of bottles per hour with a pitcher of juice and a funnel for filling the bottles without the help of a machine.

Part of the reason that we can fill juice bottles so quickly by hand is that the standard cold-pressed juice bottles we use tend to be easy to fill. A 12 Oz or 16 Oz bottle with a wide mouth is very easy to pour into with a funnel. You can line up 20 empty bottles and just go right down the line pouring into them. If the bottle you chose had a small opening, it may make more sense to use a machine.

Another point regarding labor costs is that the filling machine system must be cleaned regularly which adds a step to your daily juicing process.

 

Waste

Since a bottle filler requires tanks and tubing/hoses to work, there will be some juice left in the system when you’re finished filling bottles. There’s simply no way to get it out other than to flush the system with water, which mixes with the juice and becomes a by-product that needs to be discarded or re-purposed. The system also has to be cleaned, which adds extra labour to your daily juicing process.

 

When it makes sense to buy a bottle filler?

At some point, it makes sense to invest in an automated filling line. When your business is big enough to justify spending $200k on a fully automated filling line, you will see massive savings in labor and that investment will pay for itself in a very short amount of time.

Imagine going from 4-5 full-time employees filling thousands of bottles per day down to a single person only spending part of their time operating the bottle filler, while they spend the rest of their time managing other parts of the operation. There will still be some wasted product which is unfortunate, but the wasted juice is proportionally a much smaller amount when dealing with large volumes and the cost is minimal.

While they may be among the last considerations in a liquid filling line, labelling machines are also one of the most important. If one of your goals as a business is to appeal to your audience with high-quality labels featuring original logos, graphics, and text, a labeller is crucial for your production line. In many cases, liquid products will need unique packaging and labelling designs to stand out on the shelves and attract consumers.

Benefits of Installing Labelling Equipment

There are several benefits that a packaging line will experience with high-quality labelling machines. One of these is increased efficiency since today’s labelling equipment is designed to print complex graphics and text at a faster rate and with better quality than older models. The demands of a high-speed bulk production line can be easily met with the use of one or more labellers.

Money can also be saved through labelling machines combined with cost-effective printing materials. With the right labelling machine from the right manufacturer and seller, frequent repairs and breakdowns can be avoided that might be experienced with low-quality labelling systems. Many of today’s labellers also can print on a variety of materials, including paper and mylar, helping determine which material is best to maintain both quality and affordability.

Automation of production lines is another benefit of using labellers, in addition to automatic liquid fillers, conveyors, and other packaging equipment that can keep processes moving along at the most productive rate.

Types of Labelling Systems

There are several types of labellers available for production lines based on their specific needs.

Horizontal wrap labelers. These are typically utilized for labelling unstable round containers such as vials with rounded bottoms. Items are placed on a horizontal roller, which then runs them through a wrap station.

Vertical wrap labellers. Vertical labellers are normally used for a variety of bottles, including slightly tapered bottles and stable square or rectangular bottles that won’t easily trip during transfers. Partial and full labels are available for these labelling machines. It’s among the most popular options.

Front and back labelers. Use these labellers to place labels on one or two sides, or in some cases with some modification, three sides of either oval, flat, round, or rectangular bottles. However, like vertical wrap labellers, bottles need to be stable enough to avoid tripping while being transported on conveyors.

Top labelers. This type of labeller is suitable for a variety of applications, including everything from electronics to edibles. It works by placing a panel or spot label on the top of a product that passes, such as a wide round jar lid.

Top and bottom labelers. These are used to label flat containers that require both a top and bottom label, such as a tray with a UPC label on the bottom and a product label on the top.
Print and apply labellers. Configurations for these may be used for a variety of containers including bottles, cartons, and cases.

Custom labelling equipment. In some cases, companies may be able to create a custom configuration for a labeller if needs aren’t compatible with standard labellers.

How to Select the Right Labeler

When trying to find the best filler to install in the filling line, it’s important to consider the different factors that go into a purchase.

Sizes and shapes. One of the first things to consider is the size and shape of the containers and the corresponding parameters of the label, which help determine which type of labeler can meet these criteria. While some labellers may be more versatile and accommodate a variety of widths, lengths, and shapes, others may only be suitable for handling specific sizes and shapes.

 

 

Hand-applying labels are the way most companies start, selling small quantities at a farmer’s market, or fulfilling individual online orders for example.
Hand-applying labels are tedious, leads to waste (damaged labels), and despite all best efforts the labels are not consistently applied. Full-wrap labels are even more difficult to align, and film labels tend to trap air bubbles. As your production volume increases and fewer friends and family are willing to join you for a “labelling party”, it can take forever to get through all those label rolls. Or maybe you are just tired of paper cuts, perpetually sticky, aching fingers, and misaligned labels. So what’s next?
Machine application is a natural next step. Time is money, after all, and the only thing hand application has going for it is the cost: it’s free. With experience, you can apply between 300-500 labels per hour to a bottle– that’s one label on one side. If you have a front label and a back label that number is going to be cut in half. As un-labelled bottles pile up and you’re surrounded by a mountain of label liner waste nursing sore fingers, an electronic label applicator starts to look like a sound investment.

Manual Tabletop Label Applicators

Manual label applicators combine the functionality of a dispenser with a roller that you drag or spin your container across to apply the label uniformly. Labels are dispensed manually, or by advancing the roll through the hand pressure of your container. These applicators are designed for small rolls of labels and eliminate the inconsistency and inevitable waste of hand labelling.

Semi-Auto Label Applicators

Electronic semi-auto label applicators are available as tabletop machines about the size of carry-on luggage that apply the labels as you swap bottles in and out by hand. Some applicators operate by pressing a foot pedal, some by sensing the insertion of a new bottle. (We’re using ‘bottle’ here but this could be a jar, can, etc…). Some dispense the discarded liner into a heap on the floor and others include a waste rewinder to keep your workspace tidy.

 

Added features that affect the final price can include:

 

  • Labelling speed (units per hour)
  • Sensors that eliminate the need for a foot pedal
  • Waste rewinders to handle the discarded label liner
  • Larger label roll capacity
  • Ability to handle clear film labels or other exotic label materials
  • Front and back label application
  • Larger container size capacity (a labeller that can accommodate a wine bottle may cost more than an applicator that maxes out with a 1-quart jar)

Additional Considerations When Purchasing a Semi-Auto Applicator

When considering a semi-auto label applicator, your current specific packaging needs will be a priority. However, some equipment is more versatile and adjustable than others, which will allow you to label additional containers than those you are using now– something you may develop a need for in the future.
When shopping for labelling equipment you will want something sturdy that will not wear down or break easily– professional/industrial grade equipment, not hobby products. Adjustment points should be robust, having to fiddle with them constantly to keep everything in line will be frustrating and slow down production.

When you work in a business that uses liquid-filling machinery to package products, you know that having the process be as automated as possible is the goal. For instance, having volumetric fillers help fill liquids into containers at an even, consistent fill level, while cooling conveyers help molten products cool off more quickly than traditional conveyor belts. One of the last steps in automating the process for a lot of businesses is the capping or sealing of the product. Many businesses choose to do at least part of this process manually, from filling the hopper of caps to the actual capping of the containers. Not only is this a tedious process, it takes a lot of time that can be spent focusing on other aspects of your business. Thankfully, several different machines can help mitigate the difficulties that come along with manual capping.

Cap Elevators

Cap elevators allow caps to be stored until they’re ready to be used. Rather than keeping the caps in a box somewhere, this automatic elevator hopper is designed to supply caps to an automatic capping machine down the line. The machine is activated when the hopper to a capping machine is getting low. It is designed to feed a wide range of different-sized caps, from 10mm to 110mm, so is a versatile choice when you want to automate the first part of the capping process—the actual act of finding the caps.

Cap Sorters

Cap sorters are a helpful machine that helps position caps so they are facing the correct direction when the capping machine picks them up to be used. Cap sorters are available in an elevator setup, which helps bring up a supply of caps to the capping machine, or a vibratory setup, which works by shaking the surface that the caps are on until the cap switches to being positioned correctly. These machines ensure that the capping machines can do their job efficiently once the caps are ready to be placed.

Capping Machines

Finally, the capping machines themselves are what place the caps onto each container. For these types of machines, there are four options – spindle cappers, chuck cappers, snap cappers and wheel pluggers. Spindle cappers spin the lids onto the product as the container sits stationary underneath a station. Chuck cappers also spin caps onto containers, but this machine is designed to keep the products moving at a consistent pace, so the lid is placed on the container and then the container runs through the machine, which has lid tighteners along the top. Snap cappers snap the caps onto the container tightly, and vertical wheel pluggers are used for containers that require plugs rather than lids or caps.

Saving time is easy when you use capping machines from HMPL. Don’t stress yourself out by continuing to manually cap your products. Instead, use these machines to automate the process, and you’ll be surprised at how much more you can get done!

 

When your business packages liquid goods, applying a cap or lid to each container securely is an essential part of the process. If you’re not currently shipping out a lot of products, or if you don’t have a complete packaging line up and running quite yet, you may not have implemented having a capping machine into the line yet. If you’re still capping your containers manually, you could be wasting a lot of time making sure that each cap is tightened or snapped securely into place. Instead, consider automating the process by integrating an Automatic Cap Sealing machine into your line.

 

Why Use Capping Machines?

Automatic Capping Machines not only speed up the process of finishing the packaging of your product, but they also ensure that each cap is sanitary and that the product does not get contaminated by handling. Additionally, they allow you to save yourself from the repetitive motions of placing and tightening caps to each container yourself. There are several different capping machines that can help you pack more product in less time—and not just the machines that place the caps on, either.

How Can Capping Machines Benefit Your Business?

Capping machines can not only save time, but they can streamline the process of placing caps on containers and getting products ready for shipping. For example, instead of having to manually sort caps or manually place and tighten caps, you can let a machine do all the work for a uniform, consistent result. If your containers require plugs and not proper caps, some machines can take care of that job, such as automatic vertical wheel pluggers. Save time and produce more consistent packaging with automated machinery. Add in a piece at a time, or purchase an entire system at once—whatever your budget allows.

Types of Capping Machines

Among capping machinery, there are a few different classes – the actual capping machines, cap sorters and cap elevators. Cap sorters work with the caps to orient them correctly before sending them along the line to the capping machines for placement. Cap elevators are part of a cap feeding system, and they are used to increase the efficiency of automatic capping machines as well as container unscrambling as the caps are pulled from a hopper and then transported to the next stop in the line. As for the actual capping machines, those include:

Chuck cappers: Chuck cappers work by placing a cap onto a container, and then sending it through the machine, where the moving parts spin the cap so it is sealed tightly. With this machine, the container is in continuous motion, rather than stopping at a spin station, as happens with spindle cappers

Spindle cappers: A similar machine to chuck cappers, instead these stop the containers at stations and spin the caps onto the container while the containers remain stationary.

Snap cappers: Snap cappers work by pressing a snap-on cap to each container as it traverses through the machine.

Vertical wheel pluggers: Finally, wheel pluggers are used where the containers being sealed require a plug instead of a cap placed on top.

Type Of Cap Sealing Machine:-

  • Semi Automatic Induction Cap Sealing Machine
  • Semi Automatic ROPP/Screw Cap Sealing Machine
  • Automatic Bottle Cap Sealing Machine
  • Automatic Rotary ROPP/Screw Cap Sealing Machine
  • Automatic Vial Cap Sealing Machine
  • Automatic Measuring Cap Placing Machine
  • Automatic Induction Cap Sealing Machine
  • Automatic Horizontal Flow Wrapping Machine

What Industries Use Capping Machines?

Like most packaging machinery, capping machines are used in a variety of different industries. Just a few of these industries are:

 

  • Beverage and food
  • Distilled spirits and wine
  • Candles, lip balms, and molten products
  • Cleaning products
  • Pharmaceutical and medical
  • Paints, stains, and sealants (home improvement)
  • Personal care/health and beauty

 

When you are looking to buy a machine that can be used for capping bottles, you should definitely consider getting a ROPP capping machine or a roll on pilfer proof closure machine. These packing machines have been introduced many years ago but over the years they have improved in their technology and efficiency which ensures better performance each and every time. Basically these machines include a robust unthreaded aluminum shell which is placed over the neck of the bottle. As the machine presses down, it has numerous thread-forming wheels spin right around the shell to press against it. This helps to conform to existing threads of a bottle and the locking ring.

 

A ROPP capper is very similar to a chuck capper even though these machines do not involve any clutch mechanism. The ROPP capping machines can be purchased as single head systems or multiple head systems that come with high speed rotary features. A major advantage of ROPP capper machine is that it seals a product and delivers tamper evident security at the same time. However, a downside of using a ROPP capper is that it’s generally expensive to manage more than a single cap size. The threads and neck of the bottle has to be hard enough for withstanding the pressure needed to form the threads. For this reason, these machines are mostly used with hard plastic or glass.

 

The latest ROPP capping machines are designed and manufactured by using superior quality stainless steel materials and they also come with hard chrome plating and SS cladding to confirm complete resistance to corrosion and improved longevity. They also come equipped with single motor synchronized conveyor, platform turret and star wheel. The good thing about these machines is that they also feature self-lubricating properties which helps in reducing friction in a big way. The noiseless and smooth conveying of the capping process also makes them a hot favorite among various companies. Since they always deliver vibration free operation for all kinds of projects, they are always deemed useful for different types of projects. Additional features that come with these machines include an adjustable torque as well as low power consumptions with a low noise level. Many of the ROPP capping machines that are available these days include an acrylic cabinet, motorized height adjustment feature; a safety guard for protection and operation as well as specially designed hopper for increasing the storage capacity of the bowl.

 

The good thing is that there are multiple models of automatic and semi automatic machines these days that can be used for advanced bottle capping requirements. The productivity level associated with these machines varies greatly on the model that you opt for needs. This means that when you choose to buy these products for your business, you can expect your company to effectively deal with the market competition. Therefore, once you have decided to buy these machines, make sure that you consult a reputable manufacturer that can provide you with state of the art ROPP capping machines.

 

Automation in the packaging process creates many benefits for the packaging company.  This week we will analyze individual pieces of packaging equipment and explain some of these benefits.
The automatic liquid filler moves the product from a holding tank to the waiting bottles or other containers without the need for operator interaction during each fill cycle.  In automating the filling process, a company can expect to improve the packaging operation in several ways, including, but not limited to, the following.

1.  Consistent and Reliable Fills

Using an automatic filler removes the uncertainty from the filling process.  Whether looking for a level fill, a highly accurate volumetric fill or using some other specific criteria, the automatic machine ensures that each cycle is completed in the same manner.  Consistency and reliability that simply cannot be had by hand-filling bottles or containers are easily achievable with the right machine for each project.

2.  Speed

Once production demand reaches a certain level, it simply becomes unrealistic to hire manual labour to complete each bottle fill.  Probably the most obvious benefit of using automatic packaging machinery is the ability of the machinery to increase speeds.  Using power conveyors and multiple fill heads along with the proper filling principle allows production to not only run faster but run constantly.

3.  Versatility

Many companies use multiple bottles for a single product.  Several companies also run multiple products.  In most cases, a single liquid filler can be manufactured to handle all bottles and products packaged by a company.  Some machines will use simple adjustments to change from one bottle or product to another, while others might require a little more time on changeover where bottle sizes or product viscosity varies greatly from one to another.

4.  Ease of Use

Almost all automatic filling machinery will come equipped with a PLC and easy-to-use operator interface.  The interface uses a touchscreen that allows the operator to enter the various times and amounts necessary to complete each cycle.  Once the numbers are entered, a recipe screen will allow the same to be retained.  Eventually, the operator will simply need to enter the recipe number on the interface, make any physical adjustments (conveyor rails, fill head height, etc.) and then monitor the machine as it goes to work.

5.  Growth Potential

Automatic packaging machines can and should be manufactured with the future in mind.  In other words, the machine should not be manufactured to immediately meet maximum capacity.  At LPS, we build our equipment expecting our customers to experience growth!  Simple additions to filling machines, such as extra fill heads, allow the equipment to grow with the business.
While there are other benefits to automating the filling process from project to project, a packager can always expect to receive those noted above.  For more information on how automating packaging processes can benefit your unique project, contact our staff today.

You all know that the use of packaged bottled water is being grown for the last few years. The consumption of such bottles has increased worldwide. Because of this only, many companies earn huge profits by selling drinking water stored in packaged bottles. Almost all people opt to make use of it as it is safe having pure and mineral water.

 

Millions of people across the world want to use packaged drinking water rather than tap water as it is packed with several health benefits. Another reason they go for bottled water is that it is much tastier than tap water. Packaged bottled water is believed to be safe drinking water. Drinking bottled water is a part of our everyday life. To meet up the requirement of bottled water, you can have many drinking bottled water packaging Lines.

 

Functions of packaged drinking water packaging line

 

Water & Juice Packaging Lines go through different processes to purify water. Water has to be processed. So that it gets cleared of germs and other harmful microbes. We are going to list out the processes that come about in the processing plant. Here are some of the key processes.

 

Filtrating: Water is stored from various sources i.e. rivers, underground and so on. It needs to be filtered before going to drink it. Water consists of several harmful solid contents that need to be removed. A series of filtration like microfiltration, nanofiltration, and ultrafiltration is being utilized to remove those particles to make clean the water.

 

Reverse osmosis: It is made to purify water by removing larger particles from drinking water. It can take out many molecules and ions from water.

 

UV (ultraviolet) Sterilizers: It is used for both fresh and saltwater. Generally, it is easily merged by the primary filtration system. It can clean water-borne germs.

 

Ozonation: The process of ozonation is done after filtration. It helps to kill bacteria and viruses in water. At the time of ozonating, it is transformed into oxygen and water by removing toxic molecules.

 

Nowadays packaged drinking water is easily available everywhere from public stores to shopping malls. It is observed that the largest end-user of bottled water in Europe and the second-largest consumer in India. In the past, purchasing bottled water was considered a sign of a rich man, but now everyone can afford it.

 

As there are several bottling plants and industries in the country, packaged drinking water becomes cheap and easily available. The competitive rates and the marketing strategies adopted by a large group of multinationals in the country have led to an increase in the consumption and availability of bottled water in the country. Various companies are producing bottled water and that is the reason packaged drinking water has become cheap.
