INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR INDUSTRY
LINEAR FILLERS AND FILLING MACHINES
Our semi-automatic fillers are designed for dosing various types of substances: liquid, thin and thick, of different viscosity levels as well as foamy liquids into plastic and glass containers.
They can use different liquid measuring systems: piston, vacuum, pressure, with electromagnetic or mass flow meters.
The operator delivers containers to the filler, places them under fill heads and uses the foot switch or a button to start the machine. The fill heads go down and the fill cycle begins. Once the filling process is completed and the fill heads go up, the operator removes the containers from the filling area. They then load empty containers under the fill heads and a new filling cycle begins. We assist in tailoring solutions to clients’ needs. We also provide post-warranty services and supply necessary parts and consumables.

WHAT IS A FILLING MACHINE?
Filling machines form a crucial part of contemporary production lines in industrial companies. They allow for the automation of the pouring and dosing of liquids process. Therefore, they improve the efficiency of work and contribute to cost reduction. We offer you modern and cost-effective linear fillers, which can be used in, among others, food and cosmetic industry.
PISTON FILLING MACHINES
A piston system moving in specially prepared cylinders with appropriately adjusted operating pressure is used to fill product containers. To put it plainly: a piston moves inside the cylinder (up and down) and, depending on its position, liquid is either sucked in or transferred to the dispenser directed towards the container on the production line. The filling heads are equipped with single pistons that can be placed in any position (vertical or horizontal). This type of dispenser is ideal for filling very viscous and thick substances that can often be encountered in the cosmetics industry: creams, gels, shampoos, soaps, scrubs, masks and even hair dyes. It is worth mentioning that filling is followed by labelling… However, let’s get back to filling machines. Apart from the cosmetics industry, piston machines are also used in the food industry for products with similar viscosity and consistency, for example: pâtés, fish pastes, milks, yoghurts, jams or cream cheese. In addition, pharmaceutical industry uses piston filling machines for dispensing all kinds of ointments, creams or pastes.
FILLING MACHINES WITH FLOW METERS
These are machines with very high measurement accuracy. Thanks to the use of flow meters, the fillers measure the flow in terms of its intrinsic properties such as volume or mass of matter transported through a given surface to the direction of the flow. As we have already mentioned, their unquestionable advantage is high measurement accuracy. This type of fillers have dosing accuracy below the threshold of 0.5%, which is a surprising result, taking into account the nature of the work of this type of machines. The fillers can be configured according to the different types of products as well as the number of doses to be dispensed into containers. The flow meters come in two main variants: mass flow meters and electromagnetic flow meters that use the Faraday electromagnetic law of induction. Such fillers are ideal for companies producing sparkling water, alcohol or beverages.
PRESSURE OVERFLOW FILLING MACHINES
Their use is most common in filling glass and PET plastic bottles or containers. Such fillers can handle water-thin or medium-viscosity substances. Unfortunately, any other product with a higher intrinsic viscosity is not suitable for this type of machine. Therefore, we should exclude it from use in production lines of such products as pastes, jellies, marmalades, jams, thick sauces or mayonnaise and many other substances. The filling machine is designed mainly for companies from the chemical, cosmetic or food industry. Despite all the restrictions, this filler can still be used for a number of purposes.
