Completely Rebuilt Packing and Processing Machinery - Examples of Past Projects

rebuilt packaging machine

Completely Rebuilt Linker Triblock Rinser - Filler - Capper.

This machine was completely disassembled, thoroughly rebuilt, reassembled - with several major modifications in terms of design. System was configured with versatile adjustable air conveyor discharge direct to neck handling infeed star. This included two neck finishes 28mm and 38mm with four bottle diameters requiring quick change bottle handling parts. PLC was upgraded to L555 ControlLogix with a 10" C-more touch screen HMI. Controls included all necessary integration devices and logic when delivered. Customer has a high quality maintenance staff that installed the Triblock, and Berks Plant Design and Maintenance Technicians assisted in startup and training on site. All Rebuilt Machinery is supplied with a 1 year parts warranty, meeting or exceeding new equipment manufacturers commitments.

rebuilt packaging equipment

Completely Rebuilt US Bottlers All Stainless Rotary Pressure Gravity Filler

This machine was completely disassembled, thoroughly rebuilt, reassembled, and delivered to integrate into a 200 per minute hot fill plant. Supplied with custom control system, this unit was integrated with the HTST pasteurizer via EtherNet interface. A constant recirculation loop was in place between the HTST and the filler reservoir. Temperature Controls were put in place such that the product could never be filled under temp. A valve purge subroutine would also guarantee that no under-temp product could lie in the valves and lines. Berks Plant Design and Maintenance Technicians installed, integrated, and commissioned the unit as well as training of staff upon completion. All Rebuilt Machinery is supplied with a 1 year parts warranty, meeting or exceeding new equipment manufacturers commitments.

rebuilt processing equipment

Completely Rebuilt Krones 24 Station Canmatic Labeler.

This unit was disassembled, completely rebuilt, assembled, and tested. This was supplied with a new control system including Touch Screen HMI, L555 PLC, and extensive integration logic. A major upgrade to Nordson Vista Hot melt applicators was performed replacing the maintenance intensive standard glue pots. The unit was supplied turnkey with new label and container handling change parts for two container and label sizes. A custom infeed and discharge conveyor system was built in order to seamlessly replace the old labeler in their production line. The machine was delivered, installed, and commissioned by Berks Plant Design and Maintenance's staff. All Rebuilt Machinery is supplied with a 1 year parts warranty, meeting or exceeding new equipment manufacturers commitments.

rebuilt processing machinery

Completely Rebuilt US Bottlers PGF-80, Rebuilt Alcoa 212-16 16 head Rotary Capper, and Rebuilt Silgan VG series Lug Capper - ALL Servo Synchronized!

These units were completely rebuilt, unitized with one common conveyor, and servo synchronized to each other via an extremely elaborate Control system composed of a Control Logix Processor, 3 Kinetix Servo drives, a 14" Touchscreen HMI all housed in a brand-new electrical panel. A custom designed and manufactured combination of screw kits linked the rotary filler, rotary capper, and Lug capper together for absolutely seamless container control throughout…from transfer star wheels of each machine to respective star wheels of the next machine, ending with a custom feed screw infeed on the Silgan Lug Capper. When Running plastic caps, the lug capper top end disengaged and elevated automatically to eliminate wear and provide clearance for the container for each given recipe. When running Lug and PTO caps, the Alcoa ceased its rotation, and the bottle handling change parts for that recipe were used to bypass it completely to eliminate wear and simplify container handling in general. Every possible container and cap combination (there were several) was accounted for using a recipe management system as well as quick change parts designed for use with this system. All Rebuilt Machinery is supplied with a 1 year parts warranty, meeting or exceeding new equipment manufacturers commitments.
