Lid Closing System
Automatic lid closing for Simtom Food Products. Following an invitation to offer a solution to press lids on buckets, Maverick Automation designed a simple but effective lid closing machine complete with variable speed production conveyor. The system was designed to allow all products from small glass jars to buckets and plastic screw cap containers to travel down the new filling line. When lid pressing is required a geared closing system lowers and ‘clicks’ into place; no tools required. This system is capable of closing press on lids at any line speed due to an ingenious synchronised drive; see video. The design also allows the unit to be very compact, simple and above all reliable.
