Product Packaging Pull Station for Conveyors

When it comes to crafting the most efficient packing line that you can, one thing you simply cannot forget to purchase and incorporate in your system are pull stations for conveyors. Naturally, the conveyors are also important, as they take the containers from one position to the next in the overall process, but if it weren’t for pull stations and push station transfers, the containers would simply stay put on the conveyors, never quite making it to the destination they need to at the next machine. In other words, they might be filled at a liquid filling machine, but without a push or pull station, they won’t be able to get onto the conveyor belt. And once there on the belt, when taken to the next machine, another station is necessary to ensure those containers are properly positioned for the next step in the packaging process.

How Do Pull and Push Stations Work?

Push and pull transfer stations work but aligning their machinery with the containers on your conveyor belts, then either pushing or pulling said containers from one space to their next location—either onto a conveyor belt to be taken to the next machine station, or into position at a machine that does something, such as a liquid filling machine or labeler. In order for your packaging line to work properly, you need to have push and pull transfer stations.

Other Essential Product Packaging Line Machinery

When you’re building the ideal packaging line, it’s important not to leave out any aspect of the process when it comes to machinery. For instance, you may not initially think to purchase and install a bottle cleaner, but if you’re storing your containers, you’ll need to ensure they’re free of contaminants before filling your product into them, and a bottle cleaner is the only way to ensure that. Be sure to think of things also like cap sorters, which reposition the caps for your containers so they can be placed onto the bottles quickly and easily.
