SA to showcase 120ppm spirits filling and capping line at PPMA show

A constant exhibitor at the PPMA show, global packaging machinery giant Shemesh Automation (SA) will be showcasing a fully automatic, industry 4.0 ready Gin filling and capping line sold to BEAMS PACKAGING SERVICES, a major Cambridgeshire UK based client. (Stand B20)

The Filler, an advanced STRATUM series model STRATUM/II features a Double Servo system ensuring both the pistons and the nozzles move completely in synch and are servo driven.  This in turn makes the STRATUM/II a pneumatics-free machine resulting in optimal production consistency and a spectacular portioning accuracy. Furthermore, thanks to  “double nozzle” proprietary SA engineering, the STRATUM/II supports a wide container size and liquid volume portioning range.  Supporting diameter openings of 32mm to 100mm, containers heights of 80mm-400mm  and a filling volume range from as little as 30ml up to 5 Liters,  the STRATUM/II  operates  within a striking tolerance of only 0.25% (!) of portioning volume. The STRATUM/II reaches 120ppm and may be upgraded for up to 180ppm machine.

The Capper, an advanced THORO cam design base machine featuring 2 capping stations model THORO/II may reach 120ppm and may be upgraded for up to 180ppm (three stations THORO/III model).

The presented Line also features the following SHEMESH standard features:

  • Industry 4.0-ready featuring built-in modems, enhanced programs, recipes and production stats
  • FESTO (Germany) Servo drivers, pistons and motors
  • Complete SST304/316L design
  • FDA approved piping as applicable
  • SIEMENS (Germany) PLC & HMI and MOTORS
  • BANNER sensors
  • E-stop buttons and safety interlocks wired through CAT IV safety controller.
  • CE Marking

SA’s CEO Shai Shemesh commented; “Every year we like to offer visitors to the PPMA show a glimpse of the kind of quality and out-of-the-box thinking they can expect from Shemesh.  This year is no exception, as we’ll be showcasing a line that was made in collaboration with, and purchased by, one of the biggest packaging companies in the UK. We’re especially excited to talk to visitors interested in our top-of the line liquid filling solutions about our brand-new double-servo filling technology – taking filling accuracy and production consistency to new levels. Of course, the Shemesh team will also be on hand to discuss our full range of stand-alone machines, turnkey lines and monoblocks – including the all new ENCORE complete feed, fill, seal machine for Doypacks.”.
