Packserv to showcase new high-speed filler at APPEX 2024

Packserv has always championed the cause of Australian manufacturing and is a strong advocate for buying local and supporting Australian food growers and producers. Throughout the past year, as we all navigated the demanding economic conditions, Packserv has been hard at work, developing a new range of machinery. The first machine off the line in their new range is a new high-speed filler which is set to be unveiled at APPEX this year.

Designed and manufactured locally in Australia using high quality stainless-steel and aluminium, this new machine is constructed from the latest cylinder actuators from SMC Technology, which is the first time used in this type of application. In a departure from conventional designs, Packserv moved away from compressed air and also from the standard single stream of container movement in the development of this equipment. The new machine is completely electronically controlled and features twin-lane indexing. The twin-lane system allows alternating filling of containers in various sizes with nozzles seamlessly shifting between lanes. This innovative design, which is adaptable to its environment, not only doubles production, but also minimises downtime and enhances efficiency.

Partnering with UTS

Packserv recognised that to build the machine they had in mind, they would need to develop a state-of-the-art operating system and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) was an ideal partner to assist in developing this innovative system. Onboard technology provides real-time accessibility for remote diagnostics, technical support, servicing, and preventative maintenance. Additionally, the machine boasts a closed-loop cleaning system which saves valuable operator time and cuts down on product changeovers.

“Now, more than ever local FMCG manufacturers and packers need to be at the forefront of innovation and as efficient as possible to keep up with the demands of Australian consumers to be competitive with imported products from overseas. Many manufacturers have faced challenges with supply chain issues, delays with parts, limited support, and downtime dealing with international suppliers of machinery. There are so many benefits of using a local onshore supplier who can support your manufacturing.” said Nathan Wardell, Managing Director, Packserv.

“Utilising the latest digital technologies, we are able to give SME manufacturers access to equipment that will allow them to compete at the highest levels of quality manufacturing” added Wardell.
