Five Star Paints in Christchurch needed a solution to fill and cap tighten water based paints into a range of container sizes for school art supplies.
Hunter Filling Systems provided Five Star with a Hunter Model 525bcv Twin Head Filling Machine with conveyor and auto gating system which was integrated with existing rotary tables and a labeller. Being multiple head the filling machine is easy to adjust between different container sizes on short production runs and for colour changes.
A semi automatic cap tightener (hand placed and started caps) was supplied after the filling machine on the same conveyor to automate capping.
The outcome has been faster throughput and elimination of operator strain from not having to hand tighten caps manually.
