IMA Mod. F550 - Capping Machine used

Listing description

The F550 is an 8-head Rotary Closing Machine for the automatic feeding and sealing of aluminum or flip-off caps. The machine has been designed to work with previously filled vials and allows the application of aluminum caps or flip-offs, and is also designed for connection in line both upstream and downstream. The caps arrive at the machine through a special feeder. The vials come from the feeding belt, the closure takes place by means of the rotary head. Once the operations are completed, the vials come out on the outfeed belt or discarded from the belt.

Pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetics, food, dietary, medical devices, manufacturing.

Vials, coming from the upstream machine, are fed by a conveyor belt and transferred by an auger into the cavities of the feeding wheel, towards the closing carousel. The feeding of the cap to the closing station is guaranteed by a vibrating circular sorter and by a straight belt vibrator. The closing tower is equipped with 8 rotating heads, equipped with vertical movement by means of a cam, for the laying and sealing of the caps on the vials. The closed vials are finally picked up by an exit wheel and taken to the exit conveyor belt. A vial reject station is provided on the machine for the recovery of vials that have not been properly closed, this station is equipped with a device for checking that the reject has occurred. The aforementioned group automatically discards the vials without closures on the rotating collection plate, without stopping the machine. It is possible to program the machine to stop after a consecutive number of errors.
The sealing machine is equipped with an Ozaf elevator feeder belt model PF-3, vibratory unscrumbler and filtration hood LAF system. Last worked formats: glass bottle 100 ml - 50 ml, cap diameter 30.9 mm, flip-off ring diameter 37.0 mm
