Plastic Tube Filling Machine (plastic tube filler and sealer) including a Plastic tube filling and sealing machine is used to fill all kinds of semi-viscous and viscous products into soft plastic or flexible compound tubes. This tube filler is an ideal machine for use in pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetic, foodstuff, and other industries.
Tube filling machines are versatile machines, designed to fill viscous and semi-viscous products such tube-filling-machine as ointments, cosmetics, toothpastes, adhesives, shaving creams, etc. in plastic, laminated, and metallic tubes. These machines are competent in handling special tube sizes and are also equipped with a ‘No tube no fills’ feature almost similar to the functioning of vial filling machines. There are manual, automatic, and high-speed tube filling machines used in the pharmaceutical industry.
All machines conform to GMP standards. Speedy, simple & proficient changeover is the leading quality of the machines, which helps in responding to the faster-time-to-market era we live in. The optional equipment available with the machines adds to the versatility. We also produce Aluminum Tube Filling Machines.
Working Principle of Tube Filling Machine
The machine is simple and sturdy with a very compact design to reduce the working area very user-friendly.
The machine is made of mild steel angle and plates duly painted to smooth finish and the outer covered to Stainless Steel covers. The filling area contact parts are made of SS 316 Q steel including the hopper. The filling mechanism is mechanically driven with a positive suction pump assembly. The syringe can be provided as per the fill volume of different variants One with each machine. No tube no filling process sensors connected to a pneumatic cylinder which enables filling only when the tube is sensed at the filling area. Machine with pneumatic cut-off for accurate filling, the mechanical cut-off device is also available at extra cost.
The heating of the Lami or the plastic tubes is done by a Standard heater which has the capability of attaining a maximum temperature of up to 700 deg with constant air flow is on. At the heating section, the tube is lifted inside the heater part by which only the area to be sealed is heated without affecting the filled material. The sealing of the Lami and the plastic tube is done in a single station with pneumatic jaws which has the provision of holding no in its made pockets. After the sealing, the trimming is also done by pneumatic blades to give the tube a smooth finish.
Batch types of numeric 0 to 9 are provided with the machine. Extra types can be bought as extra.
