Automatic Electronic Net Weight Series (AE)

The Ideal-Pak AE Series delivers the highest levels of automation and net-weight filling performance in a full-featured package.


All AE Series filling systems are PLC controlled and feature a large color touch screen HMI, easy recipe generation and storage, SPC with auto preact, check-weigh data logging, and Ethernet connectivity. In-line or lateral transfer designs are available to ensure that maximum machine filling efficiency is achieved by limiting the container transport times. These features combine to deliver the ultimate in fully automated, high throughput, precision filling.

The AE line of filling machines are available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 filling head configurations in order to meet your specific performance requirements.

Depending on your product application’s liquid characteristics you can configure your system with either a traditional manifold fill cart or Ideal-Pak’s exclusive DFS®Direct Fill System. Extend the performance of your system further with Ideal-Pak custom Lid Placers, Closing Machines, Rotary Tables and Conveyors.

Nozzles

The Vented Cone design is ideal for a wide range of viscosity applications and is extremely effective in eliminating product ”strings” and drips that occur when filling thicker materials using traditional capillary nozzles.  The cone-shaped flow of product spreads delivery over a larger surface area helping to reduce foaming for certain low-foaming product applications.  Vented Cone Nozzles are an ideal choice for product applications including chemicals, paints, lubricants, stains, solvents and food products.
The Ideal-Pak® Probe Nozzle is designed for inside or bottom-up filling of a wide range of products, including liquid detergents, hydraulic fluids, liquid fertilizers, cleaners, herbicides, and solvents.  The Probe Nozzle reduces static build-up and is well suited to filling foamy products. Available in long probe lengths for sub-surface and bottom-up filling in pails, kegs, drums and totes. The innovative quick assembly design allows for clean in place.
Featuring a stronger shaft, improved plug, and no dam, the new Plug Nozzle is the next generation of innovative nozzle design. The wetted parts on this nozzle are Stainless Steel, Teflon and Viton. An optional flush flange is available to enable a hose to be connected for enclosed cleaning.

The Ideal-Pak® Shower Head Nozzle with interchangeable plates is designed for rapid drip free filling of 1/2 pint to 6 gallon open top containers with adhesives, inks and paints. It is also great for filling light liquids such as light paints, solvents, stains and other low to mid-viscosity products.

 

 

 

 

Delivery

Manifold CartIdeal-Pak® manifold delivery systems offer the highest levels of precision filling performance.  Available in a variety of nozzle configurations: industrial plug, vented cone, lance/probe, and shower. Single or double nozzle configurations are available. Ball valves can be fixed to the machine or attached to interchangeable fill carts for easy cleaning and changeover.
