Combination filling systems use two or more fillers to fill multiple ingredients into a single container. They come in a variety of designs to meet the wide range of multi-component products. Spee-Dee Packaging Machinery offers several combination fillers to meet various production needs and line configurations.
Servo motors are incorporated to give optimal control while maintaining a reduced mounting profile. A single electrical cabinet houses the PLC based electrical system. A single operator interface touch screen controls the machine. Both fillers are secured to a single mounting platform for integration on the automatic bag making equipment.
