This automatic tube filling and closing machine is designed for filling of liquids and pastes into plastic, laminated, and metal tubes. Plastic and laminated tubes are sealed by means of a hot air system (Leister), metal tubes are closed mechanically. The product is dosed by means of a volumetric pump or gear pump. The tubes are automatically inserted into the machine from the tube hopper. The positioning unit orients the tubes by means of a photocell. The tube is then filled, heated by the Leister heating unit and sealed. All parameters, such as filling speed, ramps, and filling volume, among others, can be set on the display. The machine is delivered with the documentation necessary for the pharmaceutical industry (IQ, OQ included).
All contact parts are made of 316 L stainless steel.Top quality components are used, such as Siemens or Lenze PLC, Festo pneumatics, Flexicon peristaltic pumps and Alfa Laval gear pumps.
