Form- Fill- and Closing Machines

Typical materials and products

To find in applications like:

Tool guide system

Filling process

Film welding unit

Guides for the deep drawing process

Overview

Forming, filling and sealing machines  

1. Bottom web feeder
2. Forming station / deep-drawing process
3. Infeed section
4. Top web infeed / labeling
5. Sealing unit
6. Cutting station (crosswise / lengthwise)

1.Lower film draft

Advantages:

No lubricants at the products

Maintenance-free

Wear-resistant solution in spite of cleaning process

Dirt accumulation

2. Preheating and molding station

Advantages:

Fastest demounting of bearing

Cost advantage

Cleaning with hydrogen peroxide possible

Dirt accumulation possible

3. Cup filling unit

Advantages:

Cleaning with hydrogen peroxide

Recirculating ball bearing is no alternative (cleaning)

Cost saving

Combination with soft

stainless steels possible

maintenance-free

Wear-resistant solution in spite of cleaning process

4. Inline labelling machine

Advantages:

No washing-out of the lubrication

No corrosion of the ball (soft stainless steel ball instead of hardened ball)

Lower adhesion factor, than bush bearing

Resistant against chemicals

5. Sealing unit

Advantages:

Cost advantage

Easy to install through split bearing housing

No rinsing of the recirculating ball bearings

Good corrosion-resistance

6. Cutting station (crosswise/lengthwise)

Advantages:

Vibrations during punching have no influence on the shaft

For this reason: No shake down of the shaft

Cost saving

Combination with soft stainless steel shafts

Maintenance-free

No impact from dirt accumulation through punching waste

Application examples of our customers

Packaging machines

The iglidur® G plain bearings distinguish themselves by their wear resistance and the suitability for real dry operation in this packaging machine for polishing cloth.

Packaging machines    

Filling and sealing machine

Besides the high chemical resistance, the iglidur® J plain bearings offer a maintenance-free dry operation in this application.

Filling and sealing machine    

Forming, filling and sealing machine

drylin® high temperature bearings are used in the tool guide system of this forming, filling and sealing machine.
