In 1998, our partner Tec Engineering set out to design and develop a dependable closure transportation and storage system that guarantees that the caps will not receive scratches, become deformed, mix with other closures and will be free of dust (contamination).
All our Silo Systems are equipped with internal antistatic and dynamic pressure protection. Both technical and observation methods are used to assure that each Silo installation provides our customer with a damage-free closure and, an optional pressurizing system, eliminates all possibilities of product contamination.
CAPS SILO OPERATION
The silo receive the caps directly from the injection machine through a pneumatic conveyor. They are carried with a cyclone and rotatory vacuum system that allows for a precise and controlled speed of the caps, guaranteeing they go into the Silo undamaged.
The system is designed to be installed with one or several modular silos, depending on the storing demand. Its capacity could be easily increased by adding additional modules, while also offering an internal design that guarantees the proper weight distribution among the caps.
The cap silos are discharged into a bulk conveyor belt and sent to a sorter where they are distributed to their final destination. They can be delivered directly to a production line, liner machine, or a packaging line, sending the quantities that are requested by the operation.
