Handlinggerät für Beschickung

Feeding / charging / handling - 1

Stationnary drum lifter with universal clamp for lifting and inverting of fibre drums.

Advantage: With this clamping system you can handle several drum types and sizes without changing the clamping system.

Lifting and lowering is done by an electric motor. This enables a very exact positioning of the drum above the fill opening of the machine you want to feed.

Stationnary container blender

Advantage: Universal unit for blending only. So you avoid blocking capacity of other machinery with the blending process.

Lifting, lowering and blending is done by electric motors. Very low noise level and upon request with SPS control. So you can save blending parameters and repeat them to ensure process reliability.

Lifting column for feeding a packaging line

This drum has a plastic inliner which must not block the hopper outlet when the drum is inverted. To ensure an unhibited product flow the hopper is equipped with a special rod to keep the plastic inliner in place.

This lifting column has a universal clamping system which can safely handle conical drums, too.

Lifting and lowering is done by an electric motor. Inverting and swiveling of the column is done manually. Very low noise level and the installed electric lifting stops ensure an exact positioning above the feeding machine.

Dust free feeding with silicone rubber cap

Here you can see how the silicone cap seals the gap between hopper outlet and machine inlet (the cylindrical tube with handles).

The lifting column used for this task (not shown in the picture) has a pick up fork. To lift the drum/hopper combination safely the hopper is equipped with a special support for the fork. This solution can be favored when the form of the drum is not suitable to be picked up directly, i.e. conical form, thin or instable walls or to be free from the drum type.

Lifting and lowering is done by an electric motor. Pick up and inverting of the drum are done manually. Very low noise level and due to the installed electric lifting stops the drum can be positioned exactly above the machine.

The classic solution:
Stationnary lifting column with universal clamp to handle stainless steel Müller drums with hopper.

Advantage: This clamping system can handle various drum diameters.

Lifting and lowering is done by an electric motor. This enables the operator to position the drum exactly above the filling opening of the feeding machine. Upon request all operations (pick-up, inverting and swiveling, too) of the column can be done by electric motors. Very low noise level and user friedly.

Lifting column with "Squeeze-Funnel"

Advantage: This pick up system can handle very different drum types (different in height AND diameter). Disadvantage: The sealing between drum and hopper is not as perfect as with a hopper especially manufactured to suit one drum diameter.

The control cabinet with control panel of this column (which is an ex-version) are positioned 90° offset instead of the standard position opposite of the load.

Lifting and lowering is done by an electric motor. 
This enables the operator to position the drum exactly above the filling opening of the feeding machine. Upon request all  operations (pick-up, inverting and swiveling, too) of the column can be done by electric motors.

Very low noise level and user friedly.

Lifting column with webbing jaws

This pick up system can handle even smooth drums or bellied drums. The belts of the webbing jaws can be adjusted to ensure the necessary form-fit for non-cylindrical drums. So you can handle these drums, too without running the risk that these drums slip out of the clamping system. 

The hopper was special designed to fit the upper rim of the fibre drum.

By varying the length of the outlet tube of the hopper, all drum/hopper-combinations have the same total height. This simplyfies the task of the operator because he has only one single lifting height to consider.

Lifting column with webbing jaws and holding fingers

This pick up system is used when heavy, smooth-walled drums should be handled. The holding fingers ensure that the inverted drum cannot slip out of the clamping system. So you can handle these drum types safely, too.

The hopper was special designed to fit the upper rim of the fibre drum.

Feeding a blister packaging line:

The tablets are in a plastic drum with inliner. Due to the bellied form of the plastic drum, it is handled with a Squeeze Funnel. Inside the funnel is a rod integrated to keep the inliner in place  so that the outlet of the funnel in not blocked by the inliner when the drum is inverted.
