Automated Lid System
The Martin Automated ALS06 automatically installs gaskets and fitments into plastic lids. The Automated Lid System can be built to suit many different configurations for different styles of lids, fitments, and closures.
The Automated Lid System processes lids directly from the injection mold machine or can de-nest stacks of lids.
The lid denester separates a single lid from a stack of nestable lids. Stacks of lids are conveyed up to the denesting station. The lids are then separated and fed into the indexing conveyor of the automated lid system.
The ALS06 can process up to three different styles of lids at the same time. The different styled lids are tracked as they enter the machine, different closures and fitments can be installed on each lid. Completed lids are tracked and stacked into three different stacks and accumulated. Each station can be disabled or enabled during production.
Verification and quality control
Lids are indexed in pockets designed to protect the lid from damage. All machines have a gasket verification station. For fitments and closures, the machine incorporates leak testing. Lids that fail any detection station are rejected without any further operation to the lid and will not be stacked.
An HMI touch screen allows parameters to be set – passwords can be assigned for different levels of access and authorization – preventing unauthorized system changes.
Basic Operation and Summary
