Pharmaceutical, diagnostics and cosmetics filling applications often require precise control of the container handling, filling and capping processes. Many applications call for bottling solutions in small amounts (1-5 milliliters). These smaller containers often call for precision feeding, cap handling, plug, wiper, dropper or brush insertion, and precise torque specifications. The ESS MB Series of Monoblock Fillers/Cappers offer an innovative machine designed to handle the stringent requirements of these types of applications.
The MB Series can be ordered with a net weigh filling system and special bottle and cap handling features that create a very compact and very precise automatic filling and capping system. Weigh scales are integrated with the Monoblock starwheel to allow containers to be weighed before and after filling. The weights are compared to pre-programmed values in the system HMI (Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC with PanelView Plus 600 HMI is standard). Containers with correct fill weights are tagged as “good” while incorrect containers remain untagged and are automatically rejected, ensuring that all bad fills are removed from production. The HMI can be programmed to include automatic adjustments to the fill level to provide accuracy over the entire production run.
