Filling system for hinged-lids clamshells
For dry or liquid products

Model DS2500 fully automated filling system for rectangular clear hinged lid containers used to pack dry products such as nuts, dried fruits, snacks, candies or sauces.


Available in single lane or dual lanes, the machine will automatically denest, transport container under fill station (combination scale, linear scale, cup filler or auger filler), position and close hinged lids. Speed up to 40 containers per minute for single lane.


The Control GMC hinged containers filling system offers unsurpassed flexibility when it comes to frequent container changeovers. Built for retail-type hinged lid containers, provision can also be made to run detached lids and/or to seal film or foil membrane.  Its versatility allows you to fill on the same machine many different shapes (round, square, oval) and size containers either in plastic, paperboard, aluminum, etc.  The machine can be designed to fill and close regular or tamper evident containers. Adding a plastic film automatic heat sealing machine (see Model PL500) allow you, still on the same line to use sealable containers, with or without an over-cap.


While this description is focusing on nuts, dried fruits and dry product filling, this food packing/packaging machine can also fill liquid, viscous or sticky products by replacing the dry product filler by our Volumetric Piston Filler/Depositor (see Model DV2000).


Set up time take about 20 minutes.  When required, pre-adjusted tooling for a new container shape or size  can be bought for a nominal cost allowing you to introduce at will  new SKU to stay on top of the market.
