Even our semi-automatic filling machines are completely customizable, demonstrated here by ABA-M405, our latest semi-automatic net weight filling machine. This machine is designed for use in a Class 1 Division 1 (C1D1) area, has a conveyor and lid press, features two different types of fill heads desinged for filling in different ways, and showcases a nitrogen purge system on each fill head. 

The HMI on this machine is mounted directly in the control box and is controlled by an intrinsically safe mouse. This mouse makes navigation easier on a C1D1 machine, negating the need for an explosion proof touch screen cover. The HMI holds 100 different recipes to make changeovers between sizes or products, quick and accurate.

Many semi-automatic filling machines are purchased to accomplish niche or specialty filling. On M405, our customer wanted to fill different products and/or from different sources. The two fill heads on this machine are designed to fill in two different ways:

  • Head 1 has a proportional valve and is designed to be hooked up to a large tank or hopper for bulk filling.
  • Head 2 is fitted with a small, stainless steel tank on the back of the machine, and is designed for small batch filling. This custom designed tank directly feeds to fill Head 2 and is easily accessible to the operator to fill and maintain product level. This design makes it easy for an operator to fill the tank with a pail for a smaller batch.

Both of the fill heads also feature nitrogen purges which deliver a burst of nitrogen to the container prior to filling.

This paint filling machine also boasts a small conveyor section with our 1 gallon roller lid press, helping to bridge the gap between a fully manual machine and a fully automatic machine. The small footprint of this filler also means it is versatile and would be a beneficial addition to any filling line.

Our 1 gallon roller lid press, ABA-PRESS-1NAR, features gradually declining steel rollers to firmly press lids onto the containers, and is fully height adjustable to accomodate containers from 1/2 pint through 1 gallon. Our presses all come equipped with a crank handle on one corner of the unit to easily adjust the height, and a stainless steel cover to protect operators from the chains and bearings which make that height adjustment possible.
