Why fill just one cup, when you can fill two, four, eight or even 16 cups?

Spee-Dee Packaging Machinery (spee-dee.com) has been wondering that as well, which is why it has developed multi-lane filling systems for a variety of dry product applications.

Spee-Dee’s multi-lane filling systems come with several advantages to help customers improve production. For starters, they can be built with two, four, five, six, eight, 10 and 16 drop configurations to boost production rates with accurate fills for a variety of rigid containers.  But just how big of a production boost can a customer see? For example, filling with a 16-up configuration filler at 40 indexes per minute equals more than 600 fills per minute.

Features and benefits of Spee-Dee’s multi-lane fillers:

  • Easy access – cantilever design opens machine up for efficient tool changing and cleaning
  • Group tooling provides fast removal of multiple funnels to accommodate changing applications
  • Bosch Mi motor merges servo drive and servo motor into one integral unit, reducing the size of the electrical box and number of cables needed to connect to each individual filling lane
  • Machines attached to an optional hopper carts for easy hopper and tooling removal for cleaning and change over
