ABA-M418 is a 17 foot long conveyor section with our high speed lid dropper, ABA-LDHS with a downstacker for additional lid capacity, and a roller lid press unit. 

Per our customer's specifications, this conveyor section is at 40" elevation in order to fit into their existing machinery on this line. For that reason, there is additional support on the legs to prevent tipping.

Our LDHS lid dropper is designed to drop both plastic and metal lids from 1/2 pint through 1 gallon. This is not a standalone unit, and so it must be mounted to one of our roller lid presses. The standard vertical lid hopper capacity is 24 inches, and with the optional downstacker, there is an extra 72 inches of capacity. This allows for a substantial number of lids to be loaded ahead of time and for an operator to continually replenish the chute for fast and efficient lidding. Size changeover is simple and is executed using ratchet handles on the unit, so no tools are required. the lid dropper also has interchangeable star wheel sets for lid alignment prior to be pressed on.

ABA-PRESS-1NAR is our non-powered 1 gallon roller lid press. These units feature 19 gradually declining steel rollers to firmly press on lids and can accomodate cans from 1/2 pint through 1 gallon. All of our lid presses are height adjustable utilizing a crank handle on one corner of the unit. The sprockets and chain associated with the height adjustment are covered with a stainless steel sheet metal guard to protect operators. An optional feature on our lid presses is a no lid detector. This particular unit features one of these detectors which is designed to stop the conveyor when a lidless container is found. This prevents spills, backups, and delays, which in turn increases productivity and cleanliness in the plant.
