DESCRIPTION

The customer approached RML looking for installation and commissioning of a re-closure system. The system was required to singulate then place lids onto cans up to a rate of 100 cans per minute.

The RML solution is based around splitting up the magazine & plucker from the applicator. A conveyor connecting the two sections will convey the singlulated lids from the magazine to the applicator.

The magazine is made up of two cord belt conveyors 5m in length, the magazines hold around 1250 lids which equates to 25 minutes run time at 50 lids per minute.

The lids are plucked off the magazines two at a time and placed onto the feed conveyor. The feed conveyor delivers the lids to the applicator. The applicator receives the cans in single file then singulates and gaps them to ensure there is a constant gap between the cans, the lids are conveyed down to stop at the point where it is clipped onto the front of the can and is taken into the sprung loaded section of rollers, at this point the lid is pressed into place.
