Milk Powder Series

Our machines are especially developped for powder products to fill cans economically and reliable with milk powder or baby formula. Thanks to our modified atmosphere technology we can reach below 0.5% O2 inside the can. This fact guaranteees a very long shelf-life of the packed product.

Developped especially for powders

Milk powder is a difficult filling product. It can show different filling properties, depending on formula, fat content, drying method, granulation and density rate. Even the same product’s properties can vary depening on manufacturing conditions.

Appropriate Know-How is necessary to engineer machines that are able to fill milk powder cleanly, accurately and efficiently. Swiss Can Machinery filling machines have been especially developed for the different properties of milk powder. They fulfill all expections that you have to a modern filling machine.

Automatic optimizing process

Swiss Can Machinery filling machines have an unique automatic optimizing process in order to adjust to the permanently changing filling conditions – not only in favour of the accuracy, but also for the capacity.

After an unique basic adjustment of the requested parameters to the various filling products, the requested filling as per product, weight, tolerance, etc. can be retrieved at any time via HMI. The machine calculates the respective adjustments itself from the parameters and optimises automatically during the current fillings. Changes of the conditions as differences in bulk material (piled weight, flow rate) or in the environment (temperature, air humidity) are recognized automatically and corrected accordingly.

Cleanliness and security

On our filling machines, the filling product is vibrated into the can (if necessary) in order to attain the right free space (between product and lid). To prevent dust developments, dust collection is effectively carried out at the right positions. The filled can is weighted with feed-back control. A can that does not fulfill the parameters is automatically rejected.

The memory verifies the accuracy and the weighted quantities easily and the results are saved on a USB-Stick or via Master Control.

Filling and Seaming with G-matic
(< 2.0 % O2)

Swiss Can Machinery AG has developped a new gassing system and set a new benchmark regarding efficiency and quality for powder filling in cans. With this development, Swiss Can Machinery is taking a major step towards complying with the ever-increasing trend for gassed cans for all food products.

This new process enables the Swiss Can Machinery can closing machine to achieve perfect gasifying of cans at normal speed. The result is vastly improved effectiveness. The cost-benefit ratio for this system is very high. As a result, cans now can be gasifyed without any major increase in complexity. For the first time, tin cans with tin lids and composite cans with tin or cardboard lids can be securely filled, gasifyed and closed with one single, compact and cost-efficient machine.

Seaming with V-matic
(< 0.5 % O2 and defined underpressure)

By essential shortening of process times in the single vacuum stations with the V-matic procedure, it is nowadays possible to make machines for powder in a technology as they were formerly only applied in the pharmaceutical industry for very expensive products like vitamins. This technique does not only guarantee perfect safety for every single can, but also a quality performance standing up to every comparison with other methods.

The gas consumption of the V-matic system is extremely low, and also the use of CO2 is not necessary, as the underpressure is made mechanically. Like that, costs can be saved and the system is very environment-friendly. The vacuum chambers of the seaming machines are automatically cleaned of possible milk powder residues and sucked out after each process. This way nothing can happen even then when small quantities of powder dust come out of the can during evacuating.
