Process steps of our cosmetic filling machines
Stockpiling and feeding
We always plan the stockpiling and feeding of items with our customers within the framework of an individual concept that is tailored to the type of bottles as well as to the way in which the items are delivered.
In this area we use, for example, hopper conveyors, dosing elevators, plate conveyors or disc sorters. In our systems, these technologies are increasingly being replaced by robot applications, which we have been using and developing for many years.
Bottles, closures and other packaging components are then fed in as bulk goods or by means of trays (also reusable systems); the robot places the items in transport pucks, transport systems or directly in a downstream machine in an extremely product-friendly manner.
Filling and cleaning
Our cosmetic filling equipment is versatile and can cater to a wide range of needs in the cosmetic industry. Whether you need to fill small or large quantities of products with varying viscosities, our equipment can handle it all. With a range of options available from semi-automatic small fillers to fully-automatic high-capacity fillers, you can choose the one that best suits your requirements. Our filling solutions are available in different shapes and sizes, and they can process various cosmetics such as perfume, cream, lipgloss, mascara, and many more.
One of the most significant advantages of our equipment is the variety of filling systems we use. We employ rotary piston pumps, linear piston pumps, and mass flow meters to ensure that we can fill low to high-viscosity products as required. Regardless of the filling volume, we can guarantees maximum process reliability.
We understand that cleaning is an essential aspect of any filling process. Our machines can be cleaned using various methods such as cold cleaning, hot cleaning, sanitizing, or sterilization with CIP/SIP. Additionally, manual cleaning is possible without any problems thanks to our pump change trolley. The filling system can be easily removed from the line, making it easy to clean.
We also ensures that filling and cleaning can take place simultaneously, saving you valuable time. Using redundant filling systems, we can achieve maximum efficiency. Our cosmetic filling equipment is perfect for any cosmetic manufacturer looking to improve their filling process.
Gentle pressing and exact screwing with a large number of different closures: This is how we are able to guarantee you the highest quality with our automatic closing machines. We distinguish between two types of closing:
- Intermittent capping machines are suitable for press-on and screw caps, spray and dispenser pumps as well as for multi-part closures.
- High-performance capping machines for round, flat and shaped bottles run continuously and offer the possibility to process different closures.
Thanks to the latest servo drives, the intermittent modules can be used flexibly on the basic machine and can also be combined with one another. They offer different screwing modes (torque, stop and angle) and rely on careful container closing.
The servomotors, an exact and reproducible torque can be guaranteed during screwing; with all movements it is ensured that future formats can also be set up and run on the machine without any problems.
Suitable for your product: Depending on the line, we offer either continuous or intermittent item transport--or a combination of both.
We prefer to use walking beams with a hygienic design for the filling and closing machine. On the conveyor belts, gentle movements are definitely ensured for smooth passage.
We also offer the option of transporting items that are not stable and cannot be stowed in the transport puck, should this be necessary for your purposes. Through the use of intelligent transport systems with freely programmable transport carriers, we also increase the flexibility of our processing lines.
Labeling and marking
Labeling and marking can also be integrated on our groninger equipment. The packaging containers are guided precisely to the labeling station via the precise star guide and are labeled exactly by the massaging belt. As a result, a completely finished product is yielded at the end of the process. Strip end and strip tear-off monitoring is part of the process reliability.
Depending on the need and application, the printers that are suitable for the label can be used; thermal transfer printers and laser printers are generally the standard.
To ensure reliable control of labeling and marking, we rely on the use of vision systems to provide an optimal result.
With their compact design, our labelers can also be used in confined spaces, integrated as a stand-alone machine or permanently into the line.
Innovative processes for future challenges
Our research and development are the basis for new perspectives. We want to develop and implement an optimal concept individually based on your needs; to achieve that we work closely with all our customers and suppliers.
By joining project management and service together, we ensure that we are able to achieve excellent results together with you - even at short notice. This also includes the extensive documentation and validation of our lines.
