Fill -n- Seal Model 101
The machine is designed to:
• Be operator friendly
• Be quiet in operation
• Be portable (will roll through 36" doorway with castors)
• Be a compact footprint (30” x 37” x 68” high)
• Be a low maintenance item
• Be of modular construction
• Be a durable, lasting capital investment
• Accommodate quick parts changeovers to different sized containers
This is a single lane machine, designed for larger capacity containers (up to 5.5 inches). It is capable of indexing speeds of up to 40 containers a minute depending on the viscosity of the product being filled.
The model 101 comes standard with a safety breakaway dial plate that stops the machine should something obstruct the dial.
This machine is divided into the 6 following stations:
1. Cup Load
The cup load is mechanically driven and timed into the indexer for ease of use.
The cup drop cams draw onecontainer off a stack and drop it into the dial plate. Additionally the cup drop is constructed with four star grip knobs for easy height adjustment from one size container tothe next within a similar diameter (i.e. switching from 2oz 75mm to 6oz 75mm).
Underneath the dial plate will be a sensor to detect the placement of a cup.
This fill station is showing a simple liquid piston filler perfect for sauces, dressings, puddings, juices, even semi-liquid products with small particulates.
We can also integrate dry fillers, powder fillers, weight fillers, auger fillers, etc.
If a cup is not sensed in the previous station, then the logic will not allow the filler to dispense product, reducing waste and cleanup.
3. Fill, overcap, spin or vibrator leveling
In a standard configuration the 3rd station is left open, however it can be used for a second filler for two produt fills, two stage fills for larger volumes, placing an overcap if a seal is not to be used, or for product leveling.

4. Foil placement
There are sensors under the cup drop and the foil place station will not place a foil, if there was not a cup sensed in the dial.
The foil place will also shut down the machine, should a cup be present and the foil is not picked up by the suction cup or if the foil falls off the suction cup prematurely. This is accomplished by vacuum sensors located on the pneumatic panel.
There is also a knock-off bell to ensure that the foil is placed properly into the pocket with the cup on the dial plate.
Foil placement is manually timed into the index of the machine for ease of use.
5. Heat sealing
Heat Sealing is manually timed into the index of the machine for ease of use.
Pressure is applied via springs and quantitatively adjusted by the stroke of the heat seal mechanism.
The protected cover prevents access to pinch points but is easily removed for cleaning.
6. Unload/discharge of filled & sealed product
Completed Container ejection is manually timed into the index of the machine for ease of use.
The unloading pucks are attached to the unloading shaft. Shouldthere be an interference, the puck and shaft will fall down and out of the way and reset themselves on the next cycle.
Unload pucks push the container up onto the eject plate where the swing arm slides the containers off the machine.

Please note: The installation of this unit requires 220V electrical power hook up as well as 90 PSI of compressed air.
