New from WeighPackack Systems Inc. comes the SpinDexer, a servo driven rotary star wheel indexing machine for high speed filling of rigid containers including plastic, glass, and fiber.

Able to easily interface with weighing machines, auger powder fillers, volumetric or piston filling, or a combination of several fillers, the SpinDexer‘s multi-station filling is easily achieved for separate multi-ingredient packaging applications.

The SpinDexer can handle a broad range of containers, from small pharmaceuticals to 2.5 pound jugs. The star wheel is servo driven offering total control of all functions of the drive. Acceleration, deceleration, and braking are easily programmed to specific container characteristics.

The Spindexer is available in various diameters, from 36” to 60” with four to 30 funnel stations, and can run at speeds up to 120 containers per minute.

Stainless steel traveling funnels follow the container to allow for gradual product transfer into the container. Solutions have been developed to unclog hard to fill products in small neck openings. The operator touch screen makes it easy to set-up and operate the SpinDexer. Finger tip functionality makes change over control quick and simple.
