Container Change Parts
Container handling parts are an integral part of the line as they guide and move the containers throughout the bottling process. The star wheels and guides collect the containers and feed them into the filler for product filling, then to the capper and capping head so that the closure can be applied, and then onto the labeling machine and further down the line.
The timing screw or infeed screw controls the flow of containers into the stars and guides. They are also known as scrolls, feed screws, worms, gusanos and tornillos sin fin. A smooth and steady flow of containers is critical, and a quality timing screw reduces downtime and keeps you running at capacity.
It is crucial that the containers move smoothly throughout this process, and the quality of the change parts greatly affects downtime by preventing backups and jams in the line.
