Company now offers a chainless transport system for its Hamba range of cup, tub and bottle filling lines. Known as MultiFormat, the concept allows for automated format changeover that, through time reduction in format changes, can result in production increases of up to 25%. The system transports preformed containers up to 140mm in height and up to 2,500 grams in volume at speeds up to 57,600 units per hour. It is lubrication-free, making it suitable for use in hygienic conditions including dairy production. The system can be incorporated into new machines as well as retrofitted into earlier models. By minimizing the maintenance of the transport system by eliminating transport chain stretching and service, the system reduces the overall maintenance costs of Hamba machines.
