Cup Filling
and Sealing Machine

Gently with product - variable in use

Finnah offers three types of space saving, linear cup filling and sealing machines, the difference being in the width of the machine. This makes it possible, depending on the dimension of the cups, to cover an output range up to 58,000 cps per hour. The choice of cup and lid material is completely free; also snap-on lids – filled or not – can be processed easily. Cups with identical diameters but otherwise different shapes can be handled without any format changes being necessary; simply by adjustments in the machine program.

The cup filler is particularly oriented to the customer needs and allows a future-oriented, flexible application

  • The modular system enables cost-optimised and largely individual and needs-based machine design.
  • Sophisticated drive concept for greater ease of maintenance and user-friendliness.
  • The positive cup destacking increases the flexibility with regard to the different cup shapes to be processed.
  • Sophisticated cleaning and sterilisation systems to increase the effective production time.

The Finnah cup filler is characterised by the high variability of its cup and lid machining function:

und Verschließmaschine

The fixed cell boards can simultaneously process up to two different cup diameters.

Also the customer can provide the sealed cups with snap-on or slip lids. Convenience products with filled and / or appliqued snap-on lids can easily be created.

Finnah Packtec can offer three types of cup filling and sealing machines, the difference being in the width of the machine. This makes it possible, depending on the dimensions of the cups to cover an output range up to 58,000 cups per hour.

Depending on the defined product characteristics as well as the selected distribution channel and the desired minimum shelf life, the „correct“ clean room technology of the machine is determined and thus a hygiene class. The hygiene classes applied by us comply with those defined by the VDMA (German Engineering Federation) and have to meet defined demands on machine an process technology.

A cup filler can be designed in open, ultra clean or aseptic version. The choice of the corresponding sterilisation system to be used is made according to the product and packaging materials to be handled. The bacteriological reduction rate of up to log 5 is confirmed by independent institutes on a regular basis.

For cup fillers the patented H2O2-aerosol-method for the inline sterilisation of all packaging materials is applied.

Additional possibilities offer the sterilisation by means of UV-C radiation or pulsed light whereby aseptic filling with these systems cannot (yet) be achieved.

In order to protect the sterile packaging material and the product to be filled against the contaminated ambient atmosphere, the machines are protected with a tunnel from the cup station up to the completely tight closure by heat sealing. In the tunnel directed sterile air flows prevent a recontamination by ambient air.

Procedural parameters such as consumption of H2O2, reaction times, temperatures etc. are continuously recorded by the operation and machine data acquisition and can be readjusted at any time if required. For known packaging material preset parameters are stored in the recipe management.

The dosing procedure is a process that involves the interplay of exact mechanical precision and perfectly coordinated servo and automation technology. Finnah achieves this with three established systems that are always kept up to date:

  • Piston-valve doser
  • Piston-pipe doser
  • Doser based on inductive flow measurement

All types of free-flowing and highly viscous products, also with particles like fruit pieces or pulp in fruit juices, can be filled gently and specifically; hot or cold filling is neither a problem. On a simple touch of a button, the patented servo-driven filling system allows unique and reproducible filling patterns and variations. Furthermore, special dosing nozzles are available for different dosing applications, which are specially selected depending on the product and dosing pattern.

The simultaneous filling of different flavours or the dosing of different layers in one cup as well as a cream topping belongs to the standard repertoire. Finnah dosing systems are CIP and SIP capable and low maintenance by design.

Furthermore Finnah dosing systems also help to increase the valuable productive core time:

  • Sterile water supply being Independent from the process.
  • Nozzle changes can be performed by way of a fast-Change mechanism.

Our own material selection for all product-contacting machine components ensures that the product to be filled retains its specific properties during the filling process.
