Fillex - Vertical Filling Center - Single Station

Fillex - Vertical Filling Center - Single Station

Fillex – Vertical Filling Center – Single Station is designed to texturize glass fibre roving and inject directly into vertically positioned mufflers (silencers) through our custom designed glass-fiber texturizing nozzle. The term “texturizing” is associated with the modification of the physical arrangement of glass fiber roving filaments, so they offer optimized sound absorbing performance. The machine requires an operator to run it. Operations are semi-automatic with automatic processing.

Fillex – Vertical Filling Center is a Semi-automatic machine and has capacity to drive up to 4 glass fibre strands (with option of 4 press roll feeding unit), and blow simultaneously with up to 4 nozzles, to increase productivity. Machine requires an operator to load and unload the muffler in vertical position on the suction table, whereas the filling operation is fully automatic. The suction table is connected with linear unit that lifts up the muffler to the filling position, and also adjust the height of the suction table according to the muffler length from 180 – 900 mm. The nozzle house is equipped with nozzles and the feeding unit. 


Operational features.

Our custom designed nozzles texturize and fill the glass fiber roving directly into the muffler cavities; whereas, the feeding unit measures and feed the roving directly from the pallets. Nozzle house and the suction table are also equipped with the function to quickly changeable tooling for different shapes and dimensions of muffler.

The vacuum unit for Fillex – Vertical Filling Center is equipped different with suction control valves  to control the vacuum during the filling process. The suction system is also equipped with three different filter barriers including cyclone filter to avoid the release of dust particles into the plant.

Fillex – Vertical Filling Center is based on Control panel (HMI) & PLC system that allows the recipe management and has ability to save up to 100 recipes in the integrated memory. Recipes can be saved as production part number, and it is possible to have one recipe with 1 or 2 filling cycles, which means one side filling or both side filing of the silencer.

Fillex – Glass fiber filling machines are being engineered with sole purpose to provide best to our customers. Fillex – Vertical Filling Center is CE marked product according to CE Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. Fillex – Vertical Filling Center can also be customized with additional accessories according to the specific requirements, choice of Components, or application area.
