Fillex - Vertical Filling Center - Twin Station

Fillex - Glass fiber direct filling machine for exhaust silencers.

Fillex - Vertical Filling Center - Twin Station is intended for filling vertically positioned mufflers with textured (blown) glass-fibre filaments (roving). The machine requires an operator to run it. Operations are semi-automatic with automatic processing.

The machine is equipped with a turntable which turns the mufflers180 degrees (counter clockwise and clockwise), the suction table connected with linear unit that lifts up the mufflers to the filling position, and a nozzle housing equipped with nozzles and a feeding unit for the glass-fibre filaments. Poke Yoke system can be integrated as option to verfiy the amount of filled glass fiber, and also for the correct tooling to minimize the errors in production and / or during set up of the machine to different part number.

Index table and different amount of glass fiber for each thread.

The turntable and suction table are connected with a height adjustment unit, and can be vertically adjusted so that mufflers with a length of 180 to 900 mm can be filled. The machine is equipped different 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.

The machine fills a muffler at the same time as the operator replaces a filled muffler with an empty one for filling in the next cycle. This can be done as soon as the turntable has stopped. Mufflers can also be filled from both sides (A and B sides). This is done manually by the operator by turning the muffler after filling has been done on one side. The machine is equipped with 4 “press rollers” to get different amount on each filling nozzle.
