Lidding & Closing for tubs
Model FDS 1400

Model FDS1400 is an automatic lidding & closing machine for cups, tubs or pails.


A stack of lids (40” high) is placed by an operator in a quick-change lid magazine.  A motorized tabletop belt conveyor brings already filled cups, tubs or buckets under the lid placing unit, and then under the closing rollers. The conveyor speed can be adjusted depending on operation speed and if the products are liquid, viscous or dry.


This  lidding & closing line is made for round, square or rectangular open mouth containers, either sealable or tamper evident, it can also accommodate our PL500 plastic film sealing machine.
