From American Canning Machines (ACM), the 4-head Filler/Seamer is an automated, counterpressure canning system designed to take empty beverage cans and ﬁll them with carbonated or still product before sealing them with a can end.
Counterpressure filling allows for more complete control of beverage delivery than open atmosphere systems and accommodates a broader range of beverage packaging.
Unique to the ACM filler/seamer, ends are applied via a star wheel mechanism. This results in fewer missed lids, reduced waste and limited downtime. Additionally, the star wheel incorporates underlid CO2 and a bubble breaker to effectively reduce dissolved oxygen pickup.
The seaming unit is powered by a compact servo motor for high power and speed in a small package. The seamer can also be removed entirely so that required maintenance can be conveniently performed on a bench top.
Changing between can heights is easily accomplished in minutes by simply loosening and re-tightening eight bolts.
