We are kicking off the 2021 New Year with our first combined Massman Liquid Filling Systems Newsletter. We will now feature all three brands of Liquid Filling Packaging Solutions in one newsletter: DTM Packaging & Custom Automation, Ideal-Pak and PASE Group. Each month we will feature a liquid filling & packaging line solution from each of our brands. Three extensive product lines from the well-known brands and one sales team to assist you in a single filling or packaging machine or an entire integrated turnkey line.
DTM Packaging Dual Belt DePucking System
Containers are manufactured in all shapes and sizes, many are unstable on feed conveyors due to their shape. To overcome this, pucks are used to support the bottle during the filling and capping process. DTM Packaging’s Dual Belt De-Pucking System automatically removes the bottles from the pucks once the cap has been applied. In the application featured in our attached (video) grey pucks are automatically separated from the sticks of deodorant. DTM also offers Pucking Systems for the front of a packaging line for those who require it. For this particular application DTM’s machine provided product orientation of a deodorant stick – flipping it 360 degrees so it comes out upright – at run rates over 300 ppm.
