Coster launches new aerosol filling machine
Headquartered in Milan, since its foundation in 1963, Coster Machinery Division has designed and produced a wide range of filling machines for all types of aerosol products. The new indexing machine is designed for high output, extra flexibility and connectivity.
An estimated 1.5 billion aerosol cans are filled every year globally with Coster’s filling equipment. The firm’s new entry, 53eC, is the result of years of innovation and research, specifically addressing the challenges of a market which is becoming increasingly dynamic and evolving to a higher level of industrial automation.
The new machine features high production capacity with the ability to work in three configurations: triple, double, and single pitch, which can be interchangeable according to client needs with a maximum speed of 120 cans per minute. It also has 36 head positions; is suitable for filling all kinds of cans and bottles; showcases high-end industrial automation with brushless motors and all operations electronically controlled; quality inspection via camera systems, and the machine is simple, flexible, and completely connected with industrial IoT.
“Nowadays, aerosol filling operations are under great pressure to deliver on competitiveness and productivity in a market that requires full flexibility and fast time to market,” a Coster spokesperson commented.
“With 53eC, we aim to provide an answer to these needs, combining the flexibility advantages of the indexing technology with full process control and triple-pitch configuration to ensure high productivity, all with easy-to-use ergonomics and interfaces as well as full connectivity for real-time production monitoring and data control.”
The 53eC also offers strong sustainability benefits by minimising energy consumption, inefficiencies and waste, as well as allowing remote production monitoring and predictive maintenance programmes.
