Indexing On A Semi-Automatic Filling Machine Explain By SonuS International

What is Indexing On A Semi-Automatic

Indexing means movement of different containers and bottles inside filling areas to fill it properly with liquid. If filling machines like Automatic Liquid Filling Machines, Blister Packing Machine, Manual capsule filling machines  are designed properly, then it automatically adjusts or fills bottles one by one based on decided quantity. Bottles are first placed into proper position and hold down properly until it is not filled completely. Now filled bottle will be released further and other will occupy the filling space.


The Factors Which Are Responsible For Indexing 

 Screws, Wheels And Pins 
There are various factors responsible for proper indexing like screws, wheels, pins, etc. These altogether decide on the performance of semi-automatic filling machine. The proper indexing is beneficial in different ways like consistent filling, speedy operations, or cost effectiveness, etc. This also reduced the requirement of labors speeds up filling operation up to 10 times. There are few machines that offer filling and packaging services together. 

PLC (Programmable Logical Controllers)
If we talk technically then almost very filling machine has one PLC (programmable logical controllers) unit fixed inside to make the indexing easy and simple always. This depends on you about adjusting on actual indexing time and to make several configuration settings that are required to run bottles and continuous filling together.
Power Conveyors

Almost every Semi-automatic filling machine has guideline chart written on power conveyors and the area should be adjusted based on instructions only other it may result into bottle jams at the end. This is really difficult to calculate the actual time for indexing and several adjustments has to be made when bottles are running along power conveyor belt. 

Need Proper Adjustment For Indexing
If adjustments are not done properly then it may hinder the progress of the container over power conveyor belt. Here,the actual time for indexing will get slowed down than it was expected or calculated. To ease the process, set the height of the belt first and make proper adjustments for free movement along the line. Proper adjustments always give better stability to the process.

Once you have been set down indexing time properly, then add one extra bottle at the entry line to check the filling operation. These are some tips to ease the filling process and assured results at the end always.
