Blacksburg, VA, May 25, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- ESS Technologies, Inc., exclusive U.S. distributor of Bergami cartoners, tray formers, wrappers, and case packers, has added Bergami’s new Model TF 80 Automatic Tube Filling and Closing Machine to its array of packaging line equipment. The Model TF 80 fills and closes metal, plastic, polyfoil, and cassette infeed tubes ranging in size from 10 x 50 x 23mm (0.39” x 1.9” x 0.9”) to 50 x 235 x 78mm (1.97” x 9.25” x 3.1”). Designed to cGMP standards, the TF 80 is suitable for use in sterile rooms and laminar flows, and fills and closes up to 100 tubes per minute.
Ideal for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and consumer product packaging, the TF 80 can be integrated into a complete packaging line for a full turnkey solution. ESS Technologies design engineers work closely with each customer to define, design, and build the elements necessary to integrate a full packing line. The TF 80 has a small footprint, and is designed with ease of maintenance and cleaning in mind. The tube filler has a stainless steel frame and control board, and the moving mechanical parts are based on self-lubricated components. A user-friendly touch screen display allows the machine operator to adjust performance and maintain operational logs. In addition, the TF 80 can run both plastic and metal tubes without removing the sealing stations, providing low changeover time.
The TF 80 features a capsize tube control device, 12 position turn table, and fixed injector with positive shut-off valve and nozzle cleaning air blow. Tube infeed options include cassette infeed system, ergonomic and high capacity infeed system, and orthogonal two-axis robotized system. Safety couplings protect the mechanical parts from overload, assuring long life for the tube filler. This new addition to the Bergami and ESS Technologies, Inc. product lines offers flexibility, speed and reliability. Integrated with a fully engineered packaging line, the TF 80 is the industry solution for tube filling applications.
