K-LINE KK500 - Continuous piston stuffer


2019-06-01

K-Line works with a unique rotary piston system. Six rotating pistons are feeding the product after charging to the large dimensioned cover outlet.
The Frey rotary piston system actually is the system which cares most for the product. Smearing effects are reduced to a minimum, thereby even critical products can optimally be produced. The result is a perfect filling finish also with temperatures of over 0°C. This makes the KK500 especially suitable for production plants producing half- and long keeping food and natural dried raw sausages.
K-LINE KK500 achieves a filling performance of up to 8.500 kg/h and a filling pressure of up to 25 bar. The filling performance is up to 350 port./min. KK500 can also especially be used for all sensible good and products with pieces inside. A patented interchangeable cutting edge ensures a clear separation of the product while charging the 500ml filling chambers. The KK500 therefore achieves a very high portioning exactness, a squeezing of the product is being avoided.
An outlet optimally adapted to the material-flow (standard 65mm, optionally up to 75mm diameter) is treating the product extremely gently. All these measures consequently lead to a perfect final product.
The vacuum fillers have been presented at IFFA in HD Design. All seals are now in hygiene colour blue, in dead-space-free construction. Constructively additional upstream back up seals have been installed, which can be replaced by the user himself.
The scrapers in the filling hoppers are made of detectable material and constructed loss-proved. All surfaces have been optimized conforming to the new hygienic standard. The result of this consequent construction is a modern and smooth design made of high quality stainless steel.
A simple dismounting and automatic cleaning process are building the perfect conditions for a little effort for cleaning and maintenance. The integrated cleaning-system in the loading-system of the KK500 (clean in place) is unique. By activating the system in the touch control panel the loading-system will automatically be cleaned with water.
FTC1000 - The new control generation with foldable capacitive touch display
At the IFFA fair in Frankurt the FTC1000 has been presented for the first time with our KK500. The filling machines equipped with the FTC1000 include two powerful dual core CPUs consisting of HMI (Human Machine Interface) and MC (Machine Control).
While the MC organizes the even faster and more complex processes in the filling machine and in the attachments, the HMI takes care of not only the input and output of parameters via the touch display, but also the recipes, data backup, various protocols and process data, which are transferred to the outside world via e.g the OPC-UA interface.
With regards to Industry 4.0 this is the most efficient solution to handle the high data streams. TC1000 offers a data interface according to the Weihenstephan standard for operational data acquisition. A file server function offers an easy opportunity to exchange bidirectionally data and recipes via network between the PC and the filling machine.
The HMI CPU has a high recognition value thanks to the high-resolution 12 "brilliant display with LED backlight, capacitive multi-touch and clear graphics.
The permanent front screen made of polycarbonate is equipped with an interchangeable protective film and thus offers the highest protection degree IP69K.
The MC-CPU is safely shored installed in the control cabinet and does a very good job of process control and automation with its fanless cooled processors and wear-free hard disk. The data backup is done automatically.
The optionally integrable RFID technology serves for the authorization of the operator-personnel via RFID chip and allows individually for each operator the access to its relative parameter-levels.
Perfect ergonomics thanks to the robust designed flap terminal. Optimum operation during production, optimally protected during cleaning thanks to the IP69K-standard and hygienic design, the company said.
