Keraplast Manufacturing in Christchurch required a single head filling machine to fill medical gel into two different aluminium tubes, on an existing rotary table that was used for crimping tubes. The filling of the product in the tube had to be done in such a way that it would not trap air in the product from the filling method. Signals to detect if the tube was present needed to be incorporated in the design.
The Hunter Model 205 Filler with diving nozzle mechanism was designed and manufactured, then integrated with the existing rotary index table.
Integration of the old machine with the new machine took a few attempts to get right. The end result was a solution that met the expected outcome from the customer.
