Mumbai-based Wraptech launched its new tube filling machine at Intelpack 2017, which was held in Mumbai at Bombay Exhibition Center from 26-28 September. Along with the new tube filling machine, the company also had on display the new version of MB250EV bagging machine.
The new tube filling machine, WMTF 80, can fill aluminum, laminated and plastic tubes at a maximum speed of 80 tubes per minute. It can fill tubes with volumes of 1 gram to 250 grams.
“We have run the machine at 75 tubes per minute and the machine has worked absolutely perfectly with all the three types of tube,” said Amit Bhave, sales manager – international sales, Wraptech.
An interesting feature of the WMTF 80 is that of a magazine feeder which can hold 1500 tubes, reducing the need for operators.
Bhave informed that the target market for the new machine will be mostly Tier-I -II customers only. The tube filler is primarily aimed at the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry.
The second machine on show, MB250EV bagging machine, is useful for packaging powders (free and non-free flowing), granules, pulses, beans, detergents, desserts, tea, coffee, sugar, rice, etc. A full servo machine, it runs at speeds of 80-85 packs per minute.
