Automatic powder filling machine is used, where there is more production requirements and less man-power is available. Also, it can be said as where there is less human interference is to be kept. Because, some powders are very harmful, since they are dusty and harmful when directly inhaled. So, we, at AMSON Engineering, decided to design, such a design, where there is very little requirement of human labour is required to operate and take production. The machine is called, Automatic Powder Filling Machine, Model No. AEAPF100.
Machine Structure and Working:
AEAPF100 is made from Stainless steel pipe structure for frame, and complete structure is cladded by stainless steel sheet metal. The machine basically is having a feeding conveyor, a filling section, and an output side. The additional attachments for this machine can be, a Turntable for feeding round or even shaped containers, output collecting tray, dust collecting unit, a vacuum feeding unit or a screw conveyor to feed product into the main hopper.
The feeding conveyor is made from stainless steel sheet metal, fabricated to get a smooth edge and provision for slat chain to move inside that. A geared motor to drive the chain and base support etc. The speed of conveyor is adjustable as per output requirements. This is done through a common Panel box provided with the machine.
The filling head is mounted at the centre part of the complete machine. The filling head consists of drive unit, a product hopper, an augur inside a nozzle. There is a separate stirrer motor provided with the machine to move the material inside the hopper towards the augur.
When the containers are fed to the conveyor, it is moved towards filling station where, the container is stopped by a stopper pin actuated by pneumatic cylinder. Now the filing starts and required volume of powder is filled into the container. When the filling is done, the stopper pin moves back and the container moves forward to the next station or to the collecting tray.
The machine can also attached by hopper refilling units like screw conveyor or vacuum filler and dust collecting machine as per requirements.
