If your manufacturing business is expanding, you may find it prudent to configure a liquid fill production line. Production lines are designed to increase your production efficiency and to ensure the consistent quality of your products. At Filamatic, we can help you develop your complete liquid-fill production line with machines that accurately fill each container, provide closures, and move everything swiftly down a conveyor belt. These systems reduce the labor you need on hand for filling every product and can help you ensure consistency in even batches of hundreds of products. You can customize your production line to fit your needs in many ways, but the basic liquid fill production line will contain the following four elements.
Liquid Filling Machine
Of course, liquid fillers are the primary components of any successful liquid fill production line. Whether you are filling thin, watery liquids, creams, or gels, you will need to find suitable machines to fill your containers or bottles. You can also add the best nozzles and number of fill heads to suit your production needs, your liquid materials, and bottle shapes. The fillers should be easy to clean and sterilize and, in the most efficient production line, will automatically fill containers before sending them to the next step.
A capping machine will be next in your basic liquid fill production line. This machine adds a seal, cap, or lid to your containers or bottles. The seal is essential for tamper-proofing products, and the efficient capping must be reliable every time, so products do not leak or burst during transit to the customers. Your best capping machine will be able to keep the same pace as your filling machine so bottles can swiftly move down the line.
While you could do labels by hand, once your production expands to consistently high levels, it is much faster and more cost effective to have a machine apply labels for you. A labeling machine can place labels on nearly any time of container with the proper settings programmed. Automatic and semi-automatic labeling machines are often adaptable to many label types. When you use machines to apply labels, you can also ensure the consistent appearance of your containers and labels, further strengthening your professional reputation and product quality.
You will need to include a conveyor system in your liquid fill production line to connect those three important steps in your process. The conveyor systems should sit at the same height as the three machines and connect the production line seamlessly. A conveyor system is key to keeping products moving along from station to station at a brisk and even pace.
