Federal, powered by Pro Mach, introduces at Pack Expo, September 25-27 in Las Vegas, the XACT-FIL™ weight filler – Federal’s next generation line of weight filling systems. Since 1946, Federal has been providing durable, dependable and hygienic rotary filling systems for free-flowing liquids. (Federal Pack Expo Booth # C-3414)
“The XACT-FIL™ platform is major step forward for weight-based filing technology” said Cezary Mroz, Federal’s director of engineering. “This new platform is foundational to a full line of machines optimized for five different industries – hygienic beverage and food products, paint, agricultural chemicals, automotive lubricants, and personal care. Filling operations in these industries will benefit from the accuracy, ease of use, and space efficient footprint of these new fillers.”
The new Federal platform design reduces filler footprints by approximately 30% depending upon the configuration of the filler. Along with this space efficient design the XACT-FIL platform uses 25% fewer parts which simplifies operation, reduces maintenance and reduces the complexity of the machine’s construction.
Machines in this new line feature advanced controls that deliver high-speed and superior weight-based accuracy. Open source software is utilized to enable customization and to simplify technical support. The control system features readily available off-the-shelf components with global availability. These off-the-shelf components avoid costly and inflexible black box solutions. The platform’s intuitive human machine interface (HMI) is designed for ease of operation and quick troubleshooting.
