BRIEF ABOUT THE MACHINE:
Rotary Automatic Paste applying machine is manufactured to apply small quantity of pasty resin inside the metal caps used in Plastic Drum Filling Industries. The Machine is very useful, since the accuracy of each applied paste is similar and the quantity is accurate.MACHINE STRUCTURE:
Automatic Paste applying machine is having a Main Frame Structure made from Mild steel angle structure, fabricated and welded to get strength. This structure is also duly powder coated to resist corrosion.
Over the frame there is a Main Top plate , which holds all the rotary parts below which are the drive parts mounted.
On the plate, there is a main bearing housing on which the Rotary Turret is assembled.
From both sides at opposite sides or at right angles, there is a product conveyor made with Flat belt is attached. The Turret is designed in such a way that, it can hold and move perfect sized caps with it during rotation.
Below the main top plate is the Indexing Unit coupled with a Gearbox, which in turn attached with a variable speed motor.
This machine is made easy to operate with an operating panel box, which carries all the electronic and electrical parts.
Each function can be easily selected and made very user friendly. There are mainly, switches like Mains, Selector, Emergency stop, and speed controls provided at the front side. Also, a counter for operation, Power indicators are provided for easiness in operation.
A product hopper made in Stainless steel with maximum capacity and a pressure chamber as per design is provided with the machine.
Fill nozzle is specially designed to get an accurate and clean fill each time.
All the material contact parts are strictly made in stainless steel only to avoid rust to build and reach in product.WORKING:
This machine is made so much easier, because, there are 2 operator required to feed and remove the caps from the machine. If the filled caps are diverted to the heating chamber, then the required human labour reduced to 1.
When the resin is filled in product hopper provided, conveyor guides are adjusted to the cap size, and turret is selected and tightened, the machine is ready for production.
Caps of required sizes can be feed to the conveyor with hands. At a time at least 20 to 30 caps can be loaded to the conveyor when the machine starts.
The caps are hold and carried to the next station where the filling is done by the specially designed nozzle. The angle of fill nozzle is arranged in such a way that the corners of caps only be filled during operation.
Settings like fill quantity, time of fill, angle of fill all can be adjusted as per required.
The turret, is having minimum 8 pockets cut on it as per cap size. At the filling station, below the turret is mounted the lifting and rotating mechanism. This is only actuated when the turret stops for some short time to fill the caps.
When the turret with cap comes in filling station, the lifter lifts the cap and rotates exactly 360 degrees to ensure filling at all the corners.
When the filling is done, the lifter goes down and the caps places back over the turret.
Now, when the turret indexes, the filled caps are carried away and it is received by an output conveyor. This can be attached to a heating chamber, where the pasty resin dries and get a finished product. The above operation continues and a clean product is achieved.
A maximum output of 50-60 caps per minute can be achieved in this machine according to the fill time required. The speed can also be increased by reducing the fill time if possible.
A minimum output of 25,000 filled caps can be achieved in 8 hour shift.
