How does it Work?
Empty containers are inducted into the filling machine and checkweighed to establish an exact tare weight. The indexing feed table then clamps the container and rotates to locate them under the bulk filling heads. When bulk filling is completed the containers are indexed to an intermediate weighing station which enables exact calculation of the remaining powder required to acheive the nominated weight. Containers move on to the "Top up station"where the final quantity of powder is dosed. After topping up, the filled containers are passed to the final checkweighing platform where any under or over weight containers can be detected and rejected prior to discharge.
