Automatic moulding and filling of boluses into plastic tubes
VARO has developed an integrated line for fully automatic moulding and filling of mineral boluses used in the veterinary industry. The line also includes a fully automated packaging process.
Automatic moulding, filling and packaging of boluses for dairy cows
In the line, the mineral mixture is automatically moulded and filled into plastic tubes, then closed and packed. The line includes drying and apllying of wax coating, making the bolus easier to ingest. Empty tubes are transported to filling, where the bolus is separated from the holder and placed directly into a plastic tube. Following the lid placement, the closed tubes are packed by robots into cardboard boxes, ready for shipment.
The functionalities can be adapted and mixed to meet your specific requirements. The solution has been developed for moulding and filling of boluses for dairy cows and packing them into plastic tubes, but can also be adapted for other types of products and containers.
No matter the type of tube and packaging, VARO offers a complete, integrated and fully automated production line. This means, that just a single employee can control the entire line from moulding to filling and palletizing.
A filling line may include:
- Moulding of mineral mixture
- Filling of tubes
- Closing of tubes
- Packaging of tubes
