Automatic Linear Tube Filling Machine Operation

Step 1: Manual Tube loading - Empty tubes are loaded into the in-feed device.

Step 2: Auto Tube feeding - Empty tubes, comes down from the cassette on a slider plate. The tilter holds the tube & lodges it into the tube holders

Step 3: Tube pushing - After lodging tubes in tube holder, tubes centering / pressing done

Step 4: Eye mark sensor and orientation - Eye mark sensor sense the eye mark printed on the tube and positions the tubes accordingly.

Step 5: Tube cleaning - After orientation tubes are cleaned with blowing air inside. (Optional)

Step 6: Tubes filling - Tube filling is done on this station. The No tube – No fill device which prevents the dosing action if tube is not present, which helps in avoiding wastage and spillage of cream.Shut-off nozzle, which eliminates product dripping and maintains high accuracy of filling. A plunger in the nozzle helps the shut-off action. A blow-off system is also provided to control product stringing.

After filling the Plastic/ Laminated below operation take place

Step 7 heating - Heating station wherein compressed air is blown through a hot-air tool on the inside of the tube. When the tube is lifted for heating, a cooling ring (chilled water is circulated through it) centers the tube so that heating is uniform around the tube as also to ensure that the outside portion of the tube is not heated. The blown air is drawn out by suction provided by a blower, connected in reverse.Pump for circulation of chilled water is provided.

Step 8 Sealing & Printing - Sealing and coding unit which first seals the heated part of the tube, and then codes on the seal with metal stereos & then move ahead for cutting extra parts of tubes.

Step 9 Cutting - For Lami/Plastic tubes Pneumatic trimming unit, which trims the irregular end portion of the tube. An extractor is provided for collecting the trimmed chips, in a bin, by suction.

Step 10 Discharge - he filled and sealed tubes are discharged and collected in the collection bin through discharge tray.

After filling the Aluminium Tubes below operation take place

Step 7A - After filling aluminum tubes 1st Folding done

Step 8A - Tube 2nd Folding done on this station & then tubes move ahead for batch coding.

Step 9A - Batch Coding - For Aluminum tubes Individual Pneumatic operated batch-coding station. Where coding done on the folded area with metal stereos.

Step 10: Discharge - The filled and sealed tubes are discharged and collected in the collection bin through discharge tray.
