The client needed an automatic container filling system.
LEC deployed our state-of-the-art inline automatic bottle filling solution for this client. The system is a four-head automatic fill station. The containers are indexed and positioned. The fill nozzles are lowered into the containers and pumps are started. The amount is precisely metered into the containers using encoders on the pump motors as feedback, the precisely filled containers are indexed out of the fill zone and empty containers are indexed in. The controls consist of a PLC with high speed encoder inputs. The system is calibrated and monitored from a 15” touch-screen. The pump motors are control by variable frequency drives. The system utilizes Ethernet for high-speed communications. This unit is the sixth container filling system LEC has integrated for this client.
