MC 500

1.  GENERAL DESCRIPTION                                                                                                                                             

This  unit consists of a frame with a rotating table that has six stations.    One for inserting the yoghurt cup or bottle, one

for filling, one for placing a foil cap on the cup or cap on bottle and the other for sealing or capping it when it is  rotated   

below  the sealer or chuck and   one for removing the cup.

 

While filling and sealing,capping takes place the filled and sealed cup,bottle is removed and an empty cup,bottle loaded.

The filling is volumetric with a piston filler.

The sealing is based on a time that can be set for whatever duration is required and the temperature of the sealer

is controlled by a heat controller.

 

This machine can be supplied in three versions namely MC.500A, MC 500B and MC 500C.  

 

With the MC.500A i.e. semi-automatic machine,  it is necessary for the operator to load empty cups into the

machine by hand  and  the filled cup is patly lifted out of the table for removal by hand. There is a no cup no fill and no foil machine stop feature.

 

With the MC.500B the empty cups are automatically loaded into the machine and automatically unloaded on an  

accumulation table.   The machine runs comfortably at a fixed speed of 1 200 cups per hour and has a no cap

no seal control.

 

The MC 500C is a fully automatic double pump machine with computer control and automatic control of:

no cup machine stops, no cup no fill and no cup no seal.    Speed up to 1 800 cups per hour up to 500 ml.
