The first of the two lines presented at Interpack is able to package up to 75-80 small plastic tubes per minute
Tubes - widely used to contain products such as creams, toothpastes or shampoos - are first filled and capped by Axomatic’s AXO 1000 tube filling machine and then placed in cartons by the VcentoseiC intermittent motion horizontal cartoner, a machine with a wide choice of infeed systems and exhibited with an updated user-friendly HMI.
Upstream of this line is PRISM - a technology developed by Vibrotech - which consists of a flexible infeed system with one or more robots and a vision system able to process a large number of products on the same machine without recycling. The vision system processes the images from the camera and sends the robots the coordinates for picking of the products - in this case, bottles - to be neatly placed at the exit. Connected to PRISM, a Rejves monobloc filling machine - also suitable for the food & beverage and nutraceuticals sectors - fills and caps the bottles. This monobloc’s main feature is the use of special load cells that guarantee accurate dosing with precision up to 0.1%, placing it at the top of its category.
There will be a strong focus on Axomatic, a leading name in Lombardy’s beauty industry district that celebrates 25th birthday. Axomatic will exhibit the Axoblade that has been specifically designed to produce stable emulsions, creams, gels, balms, lotions and make-up with extremely small particles. It is complete with an “ALL IN ONE” mixing system, characterized by a high-speed blade homogenising system. On show also Axomix - family of turboemulsifiers for producing stable emulsions, creams, lotions and toothpastes, all with extremely small particles – that will be on show in 50 and 600 litre sizes – and Axoblock 160 that is an alternating motion automatic filling and capping machine for liquid or creamy products, with conveyor belt for stable and unstable cylindrical, oval or square bottles, able to apply various types of cap.
The stand will also showcase Vertipack - an alternating motion vertical cartoner by V2 engineering - and e-FILLY, a Dumek laboratory machine able to fill liquids, creams and pastes with no need to change any component. e-FILLY is an all-electronic solution equipped with a servomotor, and does not require a compressed air supply. The array of stand-alone machines is concluded by the Cosmatic P 1400, a moulding machine able to produce oval-format lip balms and mini-lipsticks. Finally, the Marchesini Group will also feature a station for strategic partner SEA Vision.
