SERAC’s Canopy® bottles it up brilliantly

30.12.2004




SERAC of France has developed Canopy®, a completely new generation of monobloc filling and capping machines for PET bottles. The machines are very different from existing rotary fillers - they are compact, functional, easy to use and economical, providing exceptional accessibility. The Canopy® concept is based on six patents filed and registered by the company. SERAC will be at the INTERPACK trade fair in Düsseldorf from 21 to 27 April 2005.

A major feature of the Canopy® machines is that the mechanical components have been transferred to the upper part of the canopy, thus increasing the accessibility of the packing machines. This reduces fatigue and risk to operators as maintenance can be performed at human height. Canopy® takes up only half the floor size of standard machines. The container neck transfer system, redesigned sensors and the invention of a new dosing system, Dynaflow®, have led to a considerable reduction in area between the filling nozzles - the machines are now more compact and simpler to use. Electricity cabinets and control panels are also housed in the machines.

Canopy® filling and capping machines are very easy to use. All users need in order to start production are two parameters: the weight of the load and the production rate. Dosage takes place with no contact between the nozzle and the bottle, using a laminar jet to avoid splashing. Waste is collected in the lower container which is easily accessible and washable.



Canopy’s® attractive price also makes it very competitive in the flowmeter market. Production capacity reaches 18,000 one-litre packages per hour. Canopy® machines can be used for packaging water and oil for the food industry.

About SERAC

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
