“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.” -Steve Jobs
From the birth of the first technologies in ancient cultures to the latest developments, engineering has played a vital role in shaping and conceiving the reality that we live in every day.
While scientists analyze data and determines the problems that challenges us, it is thanks to engineers that we can count on solutions to these problems. They use their skills, knowledge, and creativity to design and build alternatives to solve these challenges.
First step, identify your product. Your answer will define the specifications and versatility required of the equipment, as well as the special features that will shape your filling machine.
Second is to define your production rates, and the fill speeds that are necessary to achieve this. There are many elements to consider when determining the best production rate for you. A couple of these elements are: The product you are filling; is it easy to fill or it is very foamy or thick? What is the size or shape of your container, will the size of shape affect how quickly you can fill?
Also, it is necessary to keep in mind the machine quality: Does this machine suit my production needs? Is it capable to handle my production for a long time? The user-friendly design: Is the machine easy to understand? and the easy integration process: Is the machine easy to connect to my existing line, and is it expandable to meet my future filling needs? (Choosing a Liquid Filling Machine? 5 Things You Must Know!).

What are the benefits of the QR code?
1. Don’t loose valuable time!
At Aesus we are aware of the relationship between packaging time and the quanitity of products on store shelves. That is why we implemented the easy access to our service department via QR code.

We are there to help you with a simple scan and click.
3. Helping to create maintenance standards
By having all the history of your equipment it allows us to know what parts have been changed in order to schedule preventative maintenance for your machine to ensure the most up time of your equipment.
We have customers that fill corrosive or harsh chemicals using AESFill AF1s with an Automation kit, however they had problems with the standard hose and tank setup. Some of the issues were due to the chemicals themselves, due to temperatures, or had to do with the ease of cleaning the nozzles and pumps. The customer needed to have an option in order to resist the corrosive chemicals and or hot temperatures.
In order to help our customer, our engineering team looked at their problems and came up with a new simple premium package that can be added to any of our AESFill Automation kits that includes a (1) stainless-steel manifold, (2) angled nozzle bodies and (3) stainless-steel braided hoses.
The PTFE stainless steel braided hoses are for better compatibility and resistance to the harsh chemical agents, they also are much stiffer than the standard plastic hoses. These hoses hold their shape well under pressure and at higher temperatures.
We also added a stainless-steel manifold connected directly to the AF1 pumps. The manifold is then connected to the constant-level tank with a single hose, reducing the number of hoses and parts to clean during changeovers. Additionally, the manifold gains value with its single hose connected to the tank when the product feed tank must be installed further from the filling machine.
Overall, this premium package gives a much cleaner and minimalist look to the machine while ensuring the best operation and ease of cleaning for the customer. The NEW premium package is a cleaner and more resistant liquid filling solution for the Aesus Automation Kit.
At Aesus, our machines don’t only fill harsh or hot chemicals, our liquid filling machines don’t discriminate and can fill a variety of liquids. We have customers with applications in the food, cosemetic, chemical, and pharamaceutical industries to name a few. If you have a liquid that you want to start to automate, you should try our AESFill AF1 Filler.
If you already fill your product with a filling machine but are looking to increase your speeds you should look at our fully automatic machines. Depending on your speeds we have the right solution to help you fill your products!
