Riggs Autopack Launch Servo Control Depositors at PPMA Show 2018- August 01st 2018 


Lancashire based Riggs Autopack Ltd is launching their Servo Control Depositors and Filling Machines at this year’s PPMA Show, Birmingham NEC, Tuesday 25th - Thursday 27th September.

Visitors to the company's stand on A21, Hall 5, will see a twin servo control unit which demonstrates the advantages of the advanced control features to provide greater depositing controls within a recipe-based HMI screen.

A selection of the features and benefits of such a system are detailed below.

Product Recipe Control and Data

Reduced down-time on set-up between product changeover with one touch, pre-set recipe selection.
Repeatable re-selection of the fill speed and weight to suit each product and container size with recipes.
Less reliance is placed on the operator in the set-up of the depositor, therefore reducing possible human error.
Data extraction available for reports and analysis with feedback from 3rd party equipment (check weigher, metal detector).
Reduced cost of electric over compressed air (needs calculating).

Greater Control

Slow start / ramp up / slow finish control to increase the effective depositing of difficult products into awkwardly shaped containers.
Fine tune increment weight + / - during cycles without need to stop machine.
Automatic adjustment via check weigher feedback.
Automatic synchronisation or alternate strokes of individual pump stroke on multi-pump applications.
Multi-head machines will all work at the same time and will not be held back by the slowest depositor.
Varying viscosity products have no effect on the speed of the depositing so the volume should remain constant.
Multi-shot function from a single prime stroke to reduce cycle times.
Greater synchronization with other equipment such as dipping heads, rise on fill, swirl or decorating heads.

Also, on display will be a PLC control twin head automatic filling machine with conveyor, and a selection of semi-automatic filling machines and transfer pumps with pneumatic control designed for small to medium scale food production.

Typical goods manufactured using our depositors and filling equipment include jam, marmalade, pickles, chutney, relish, honey, condiments, sauces, dips, dressings, marinades, smoothies, soup, ready meals, coleslaw, pate, quiche, sandwich and pie fillings, dairy, bakery and seafood products, cake, pudding and dessert ingredients.

If you're a small, medium or large scale food producer seeking a high quality system to accurately fill jars, bottles, pots, tubs, ready meal trays, cake tins, buckets, jerry cans, pouches or bags, then Riggs Autopack could have the solution. Come and see us at the show to discuss your depositing and filling machine requirements.
