A filling machine achieves a production rate of 120 cycles per minute. It offers complete access to all the operations in progress since its turntable does not include central command. The KX 1101 comes with a turntable that has 14 stations, enabling other functions such as labeling and marking. It has been designed to reduce adjustments to a minimum and avoid any need for specific tooling. The KX 1101 offers a production rate of 100 to 110 tubes per minute. The sealing of metal tubes is carried out using a new technology with independent stations and servomotor control. Plastic tubes are sealed using hot-air technology, which enables the sealing of a wide variety of shapes. Mixed plastic and metal sealing is also possible.
