Format rangeDia. < 90mm
Height < 180mm
Our AVR Linear Capper is designed for fast repeatable changeover and maximum ergonomics. Our key market advantage is that we design the machine so that as few format parts are needed as possible. We reduce changeover time and increase operating efficiency!

Our linear rake Capping Machine can have up to 4 capping stations. Dip tubes, push on caps and screw caps and various other closures can be used on our machine. The linear capper is mechanically driven with an under-frame integrated control cabinet.

The bottles are fed in a single lane to the machine where a bottle divider automatically separates them to the required distance. The divider unit will not need any changeover part as the process is done via the HMI. Sorting and feeding devices feed the caps to the capping heads where the caps are applied onto the bottle orifices. These capping heads can be torque controlled using either servo or clutches. Our sorting and feeding devices can be designed to be able to run different sizes of caps on the machine without having to change over. An induction sealing unit can also be integrated to the machine which is normally placed between a capping and re-torqueing station. The height adjustment of the capping and retorquing stations is automatically controlled by the recipe integrated into the HMI.

Stations that can be integrated with the AVR 200

  • Air rinsing station where a nozzle pulses air into the bottle
  • Nitrogen purge station can be fitted to flush both container and the underside of the cap before closing. The whole machine can be enclosed and nitrogen purged.
  • Check-weighing, Gross and tare
  • Filling, Liquid, powder or Tablet
  • Press-on Cap
  • Crimp
  • Screw Cap
  • Induction Sealing
  • Re-Torqueing
  • Reject

Applications

Monoblock Liquid Filling Machine for Deodorant and Perfumes
3/28/2018 2:41:05 PM

Rudolf Deckert Ships Monoblock Liquid Filling and Closing Machine to manufacture perfumes and Deodorants

The FVR Monoblock liquid filling machine combines filling, screwing, capping and weighing into one machine capable of 100 containers per minute. The modular monoblock design packs these features into around 8m of length. The customer, a cosmetics manufacturer with a focus on natural products, already had Deckert machines of previous generations to the FVR Monoblock liquid filling machine. Unlike its predecessors, the FVR combined multiple closing stations, check weighers and filling pumps into a single modular machine. This reduced the space and change parts required. [caption id="attachment_1198" align="aligncenter" width="840"]Cosmetics Monoblock Liquid Filling Machine FVR Cosmetics Liquid Filling Closing Machine FVR[/caption] Designed to meet the customers specific requirements the machine was built with capping stations to handle roll on deodorants, over-caps as well as pump spray heads with dip tubes. Many products that run on the machine require a combination of closures to be applied on the machine, e.g roll on balls as well as screw caps or lotion spray closures as well as over-caps.

Filling at 100 per minute with in Place Cleaning and Sterilisation

Eight filling nozzles follow the bottles as they index through the machine. Cleaning and sterilisation can happen in place (CIP, SIP). Fill volumes are controlled from the HMI and can be saved in the recipe. The pumps draw the liquid from IBC containers located behind the machine. Changeover of the liquid is simple: choose the recipe from the menu and bring the right liquid to the machine. The machine will do the rest.

Quality Assured - Weighing and Closing

Mounted under the rake of the machine, before and after the filling station, are load cells that measure gross and tare weights for every fill on the machine. This 100% control is saved to the machines batch records and can be downloaded for quality control purposes. The final screwing station is fitted with servo drives which accurately control the final application torque of the screw closure. Like the weight results, these values are stored and can be downloaded. Cap presence and placement is monitored as well as bottle presence before filling.

Monoblock liquid filling machine makes Changeovers fast and repeatable

The use of pucks on the monoblock liquid filling machine and the FVRs automatic height adjustment makes changeover of containers simple: the pucks must be exchanged and the containers switched. Selecting the correct recipe from the HMI will cause all stations to adjust to the new container height.

Tailored to the customers Demands

Deckert are known for their willingness to tailor there machines to their customers specific requirements. In this case, the machine needed to fill from 40 ml to 200 ml at 100 bottles per minute. The viscosity of the liquid varies from pefume to lotions (i.e water to cream). The customer specified the pump manufacturer.  The closures also vary widely ranging from deo balls to spray pumps with dip tubes and over-caps. [caption id="attachment_1201" align="aligncenter" width="840"]Placement of roll on deodorant closures Placement of roll on deodorant closures[/caption] It is important to the customer that the hoppers for closures are accessible from the operator side. The bunkers are located on the operator side and elevators transfer the closures to the bowls that are located on the back side of the machine. The FVR  is part of Rudolf Deckerts range of modular, monoblock filling machines for tablets, powers and liquids. Hallmarks of the AVR Capping machine series of machines are:
  • Compact Footprint
  • Fast and repeatable changeovers
  • Minimal change parts
  • Servo controlled cam movements for filling and closing that can be edited from the HMI and saved in the recipe.
  • High level monitoring and reporting.
