Complete Filling Lines - Automated and Tabletop Systems
As demand for a product reaches a certain level, almost all packagers will move to some level of automation to more quickly produce finished product for their customers. With many machinery manufacturers to choose from, picking equipment from different companies can be an ominous task. For that reason, Liquid Packaging Solutions offers a number of complete filling lines from which to start, focusing on different industries and different levels of automation.
Liquid Packaging Solutions manufactures conveyor systems, container cleaning equipment, liquid fillers, bottle cappers and many other pieces of packaging equipment in La Porte, Indiana, and ships that equipment across the country and around the world to help businesses with their packaging needs. LPS also works with OEM's to provide our packagers the other packaging equipment necessary to build a complete packaging solution to meet each individual packager's needs. The combination of manufacturing, integration, installation, training and after-delivery service offered by LPS truly allows the LPS to be a business partner to all of the packagers that utilize LPS equipment.
Of course, different businesses and products will require different levels of automation and different solutions. In the Complete Filling Lines section of the LPS website, a few different sample solutions for popular industries are provided in both tabletop and automatic varieties. These solutions are in no way a complete list of the solutions available from LPS. Given the number of products on the market and the many different ways that they can be packaged, there is simply no way to list all of the possible solutions for every packager.
Instead, these sample lines provide a starting point for packagers and LPS to communicate and modify equipment to identify the best, and most efficient, solution for each unique project. For example, not every industry or product is listed on the website, though packagers should be able to at least find a category that their product would fit, or a category of product similar in viscosity and flow. In most listed industries, sample lines will include a tabletop packaging system, ideal for projects with small to medium demand, as well as an automatic packaging system for those with higher demand and the need for higher production speeds. Tabletop systems are more operator driven, requiring
Again, these two options are not an exhaustive list. Rather they provide two solutions from which to build. Some companies may combine both semi-automatic equipment and automatic equipment to meet their needs. Other machinery may be used by some, including semi-automatic equipment manufactured on automatic frames, allowing for future upgrades to automation. The possible solutions are truly unlimited, as LPS also manufactures completely custom solutions for rare products, bottles, caps or other components.
In truth, nearly all, if not all, packaging equipment will be custom packaging equipment tailored to the individual needs of the packager. Even if one of the solutions listed seems perfect, different options to help with stability, indexing, bottle loading or even packing may lead to modifications of the line or to a machine. And if none of the solutions seem like a perfect fit, simply contact an LPS packaging specialist to start the process of identifying the ideal, custom solution that will work for your own business.
