Ampack KF 2/4 carousel filling machine
Ampack GmbH, a Bosch Packaging Technology company, has launched the KF 2/4 carousel filling machine for the aseptic or ultraclean filling and closing of bottles and cups.
The machine fills liquid products, including those with higher viscosity, fibres and particles such as fruit yoghurts, milk drinks, teas, coffees, protein drinks, baby food and clinical nutrition products. Capable of handling cup and bottle sizes from 100 to 1000 mL, the machine can reach speeds of up to 10,000 bottles/h for 200 mL bottles.
According to the company, the filler offers greater flexibility than linear filling machines as it enables faster changeover between formats and pack styles, such as bottles and cups, in a variety of sizes. The machine’s servo motor concept facilitates adjustment to different formats, as well as to its new gripper system that feeds and inserts bottles into the machine’s transportation system and outfeeds the filled and closed bottles.
The machine includes a separate platform for its sterile air unit ensuring filters, pipes and sensors can be easily reached for maintenance. Large doors around the filling machine further simplify maintenance and monitoring of the filling process.
For product quality assurance, the machine has a dosing system by inductive flow meter (IFM) and unique filling valve. Due to the rotary valve design, the filler allows fruit, cereals or pulps to pass through. When it closes, its sharp edge cuts the particles instead of crushing them, avoiding dripping and preventing any hygiene issues.
