Our products

Product category: Depositing machines

Movable depositor

The height adjustable C-frame holds two print heads (in this example) and mass supply piping and drum. The frame is transportable and can be docked onto an existing conveyer belt for production or tests.

The tray on the machine is then positioned exactly over the flow of passing products, so the liquid material can get deposited in any sort of shape and thickness.

The height adjustment is a hydraulic hand driven system. By rotating the crank, the tray height can move over a travel of 300mm. The electrical cabinet contains the power supply, communication circuitry, graphical control board and the digital air pressure regulators.

Over the print heads, a dividing drum and piping structure is placed for accurate pressure control of the supplied liquid material. This structure is equipped with a level sensor and dairy couplings for the right mass supply.

Depositing unit

The print heads are installed in stainless steel dry-break terminals on the stationary depositor unit. This unit is based on a stationary frame around or integrated with the conveyor. The support structure for the print heads is placed on roller bearing guides to easily retract the tray with print heads from the conveyor surface, allowing easy access for cleaning or maintenance. 

The position and orientation of the print heads are fixed according to the required lane pitch and resolution. However, the tray plate can be replaced with an alternative configuration should the number of product lanes changes. Distributing manifolds and hoses to and from the terminals are fully water jacketed. The print heads are heated electronically.

A 10 inch colour touch screen allows an operator to have full control over the machine's functions.

Conveyor system

The pilot depositor is based on a stationary frame around the conveyor. The support structure for one or more print heads is placed on hydraulic jacks to lift the system clear from the conveyor surface for height adjustment and easy cleaning. The print heads are mounted in stainless steel dry-break terminals. The position and orientation of the print heads are adjustabe according to the required lane pitch and resolution. The print heads can be heated electronically. Distributing manifolds and hoses to and from the terminals are mounted on the support structure. From the batch drum the (heated) liquid material is pumped to the depositor unit through (water jacketed) piping and hoses.

On the operator side, a basic E-cabinet is mounted to the conveyer frame. A minimal number of switches on the E-cabinet allows an operator to have basic control of the machines. With a scaffold style frame and an individual tray per head, the pilot unit can be configured in various ways for multiple purposes.
