PA’s newly designed pot filling and sealing machine

PA’s newly designed machine in the pot filling and sealing range is a versatile, high speed rotary filling and sealing machine with unlimited flexibility and performance designed to future-proof investment with the latest and most innovative technology.

Rotofill has been developed to react to the market’s need to be able to launch products to retail quicker, the innovative design and manufacturing techniques used mean that lead times for this machine are improved by up to 40%. The machine comes with the option to run up to 3 lanes dependant on pack size meaning that customers can triple their throughputs for a similar footprint when compared to previous models. Other innovations include the ability to cater easily to a myriad of customer specifications including multiple fills (wet and dry fill), reel fed film or pre-cut lid sealing, clip on lid over capping, date coding in whichever configuration is required.

With an advanced control system with programmable recipe control, self-diagnostics, and real time adjustment of all operating parameters including fill weights, seal time and film feed. Rotofill also features an integrated setup wizard that walks the operator through tool changes step-by-step, simplifying and deskilling the process.

It is ideal for producers who want higher production speeds and the option of gas flushing for MAP packaging. It can be used for an extensive range of products including drinks, cream, yoghurts, sauces, dips, soups and liquid desserts, nuts, cereal and confectionery.
