The quickest single-head tube filler — LIMBUS 100

Looks fast and runs fast. Not for the weak hearted.
Products which need short, speedy bursts run on his quick-changeover, workhorse.

The LIMBUS 100 is a medium speed tube filler with a capacity to produce about 33,000 tubes per shift. The LIMBUS 100 is the fastest single-head tube filler in Subnil’s range.

Tubes have to be first manually transferred from the tube box, into the cassette on the machine. They are then loaded one by one into the holders on the turret. First the tubes are centered & oriented and then filled. They are then closed depending on the type of tube. In case of metal tubes, the tubes are flattened and crimped twice (or even thrice). In case of laminate / plastic tubes, they are first heated on the inside periphery and then sealed. Batch details are then coded on the crimp (or seal) with metal stereos and the tubes are ejected out either into a collection container or to a tube-transfer system to link to the downstream MERLIN 120XC cartoner from Vectacraft.
