Any industry that deals with a powder or a liquid needs a proper method to fill those containers for selling. It can be done manually or it can also be done with machines. The immediate process that follows them is capping the container. Labeling machine is so very important. The filling industry which deals with all that need a mechanized method of filling like powders or liquids need a quick and easy automated method of filling so that time can be saved.
Filling-An automatic filling machine can fill a lot many numbers of containers in a given time. The process is to set the quantity to fill and the time intervals at which the filling should be done. These adjustments can be changed according to the thickness of the container or their width and their volumes. The filling is important as an open filling machine can put risks of contamination if the environment is super clean. Care should be taken to do that, and avoid future hazards.
Capping-Once the filling is done the containers go for capping. Capping can be of many types. The metal capping is comparatively easier as they are pressed on to the tip of the containers. With some of the other products which need fancy design capping it is quite complicated to develop an automated capping machine. There are many ways but the ultimate challenge in this is the design of the end product which leads to the design of the cap sealing machine so it is better to discuss with the customer about their requirements and design ideas before starting the machine blue print.
Labeling- labelling of a container can be done in two ways; either it can be a pre made label which the labeling machine just fixes on the container or it can stamp and print in situ. Fixing is more common since it requires less trouble. Some of the companies can also insist on the latter if they want a special design to apply on the labels. With the affixing or the printing both can be done automatically. If there is adequate supply of labels then the automatic labeling machine is preferred which picks up each label an affixes of the containers.
With the other there is also an accompaniment of stamping the labels and so it is a bit complicated. The stamping pressure should not be such that the machine damages the containers. For that to happen the ink should not run, the angle of stamping should not also change so that it looks skewed. The fixing labels can also create problems with their glue or stick on. If not properly done they can lift up and come through the machine and so damages the mechanisms to that extent it can stop the machine and the purpose of automatic movements is sacrificed. Whatever may be the difficulties there is no denying that the automatic labelling machine has made life much simpler for the manufacturers and other related concerns by reducing the time very drastically.
