RP1600

The RP1600 is the flagship model of the GWA ‘RotoPlant’ range, and is designed for ultimate speed in container handling and filling. It is particularly aimed at powder & particulate packaging industry sectors, but is also extremely capable of handling larger particulates such as tablets, potato snacks & confectionary and is an attractive solution for pharmaceutical, chemical, and food ingredient companies using glass or composite containers, requiring clean & compact filling.RP600 ‘RotoPlants’ may be used in conjunction with auger fillers for powder filling applications or high speed counting / weighing machines for tablet packaging solutions, over-coming the problems associated in dispensing tablets through small container apertures at high speed. Due to the effective vibration of dispensed product and container while the container is cycled within the RotoPlant, very high production throughput can be achieved that otherwise would be impossible.

Rotoflex

The optional revolutionary ‘ROTOFLEX’ split turret option can also be specified for applications requiring a swift changeover in container base sizes. This provides packers with the ability to carry out extremely fast changeover / clean down procedures, and is done without any requirement for tools or support engineers. All parts of the turret & dust extraction system may be easily withdrawn by simply removing locating pins and operating quick release catches, these functions can be carried out by the line operator in situations where line support engineers would generally have been used in the past.

Head Configuration

A range of change part tooling & turrets may be supplied with each machine, depending upon individual application & container specification. A very versatile feature of the RP1600 is the possibility to re-tool the machine for 16, 24 or 32 heads simply by exchanging the centre turret and associated tooling; this is made even easier if the ‘ROTOFLEX’ turret option is fitted allowing quick & easy removal & replacement of turret segments. Both turret and scroll drive systems are servo driven and correctly synchronized by advanced servo drive technology, this allows for unique timing to be saved for each scroll / turret combination to be saved against each recipe (container parameters). The advantage of such versatility is the ability to run large containers at medium speeds using 16 heads, faster speeds on medium sized containers on 24 head combinations, but still be able to run smaller containers at optimum line speed using a 32 head arrangement. The use of servo motors has all but eliminated the requirement for gears / gearboxes, etc. making bringing maintenance requirements to an absolute minimum.
