Semi-Automatic Cosmetic Tube Sealing Machine: Ultrasonic Tube Sealing

cosmetic tube sealing machine

The cosmetic tube sealing machine featuring ultrasonic tube sealing is a fast and easy way to seal plastic tubes of various sizes. Highly suitable for usage in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, laboratory, and food processing settings.

A wide variety of products, including toothpaste, cosmetics, medications, and even food, may benefit from using the ultrasonic tube sealing machine. Environmentally friendly and simple to sterilize, it has a horizontal aluminum alloy frame and a stainless steel exterior. It’s simple to use, runs smoothly and reliably, and gets the job done quickly and efficiently thanks to its standalone platform, vertical/horizontal adjusting worktable, and extended worktable.

Ultrasonic Tube Sealing

With tube filling machines, because ultrasonic sealing only works on the thermoplastic sealing layer, all of the melting heat is produced on the inside. The linear anvil or sonotrode shapes with radii or tiny plateaus are ideal for the local conversion of vibrations to friction heat. Fast sealing periods of 100-200 ms are achieved by applying these profiles, which ensure the concentration of the applied energy. Instead of using external heat, as with heat sealing, ultrasonic sealing relies on the film’s own internal heat to close the package. 

Throughout the whole weld operation, the anvil and sonotrode, which are in direct touch with the packaging material, remain at a cool temperature. It is the temperature differential between the support layer and the sealing layer that allows for the significantly increased hot-tack resistance since the support layer stays virtually cool, and the heat escapes quicker to the outside upon termination of energy input.

When comparing to heat sealing, ultrasonic tube sealing provides a number of advantages, including the following:

  • Sealing has a visually appealing appearance and comes in a variety of shapes.
  • Seal quickly, hence a time saver.
  • Reduced power usage and improved efficiency.

Ultrasonic Tube Sealing Process

  1. Automatic loading of each tube individually to the machine.
  2. Tube detection and color-coded orientation
  3. Automatic product filling to each tube packaging.
  4. Date coding and ultrasound sealing.
  5. Tube end cutting.
  6. Discharging of final cosmetic tube products.
  7. Product transportation utilizing an extra device or when attached to conveyor belts.

Semi-Automatic Cosmetic Tube Sealing Machine 

🔵 Characteristics 

  • The work platform is adjustable in two dimensions, and the machine is very user-friendly.
  • Uses a reputable maker of ultrasonic components and a cassette-based mechanism and circuit layout.
  • Safeguards against power surges, power outages, and phase separation.
  • High ultrasonic power for reliable tube sealing over a wide range of tube sizes.
  • Cosmetic tube sealers have a sturdy stainless steel frame and a sleek, modern design. They are capable of sealing soft tubes, printing dates, and cutting tubes.
  • The ultrasonic frequency is safe for both humans and the environment, as it conforms to international regulations.

🔵 Features

  • Small-size and tabletop machines are ideal for verifying laboratory samples or conducting market tests with the customer’s existing filler.
  • Ultrasonic sealing eliminates the requirement for preheating. This provides a more consistent and tidy seal. It also eliminates the possibility of deformation and has a rejection rate of less than 1 percent.
  • A high-sensitivity sensor coupled with a stepping motor allowed precise registration mark tracking.
  • The PLC provides a user-friendly interface and touchscreen control system.
  • The touchscreen interface made it easy to make adjustments to many tubes at once. The utilization of a single tube to establish many locations would result in significant time and material savings for the workforce.
  • Operators can manually feed tubes into the machine, push a start button, and the device would automatically recognize the registration mark, move to the sealing station, seal the tubes (perhaps adding coding), and then trim the ends.
  • The electrical control box for digital ultrasonic automated tracking was developed independently, so there is no need for manual frequency adjustment. It also has an automatic power compensation system to prevent power loss over time. Tube material and size-dependent power adjustments, fault rate minimization, and a longer lifespan than those of a standard electrical box have all become possible.
  • The mold’s slot position design makes it easy to swap out the coding for a newer version without throwing off the scales.
  • The lifting bracket may be quickly adjusted using the handwheel for a suitable tube height.
  • Anti-clamping acrylic cover adds a layer of security without sacrificing aesthetics.
  • 304 Stainless Steel construction ensures resistance to acids and bases as well as corrosion.
Conclusion

The cosmetic tube sealing machine has many applications in the health and beauty industries as well as the food and chemical sectors. This equipment works with a variety of tubes, including plastic soft-tube, aluminum plastic laminate tubes, and more. Tube filling and sealing machines are useful for a wide variety of applications, including filling and sealing jars of various substances such as sauce, cream, skin cream, liquid, lotion, ointments, hair cream, toothpaste, adhesives, epoxy glue, boots oil, etc.
