Fillers and Packaging Machines (Auger Enterprise Co., Ltd.)
Auger Enterprise Co., Ltd. was established in 1992. Located in the center of the machinery industry in Taiwan, Auger develops and manufactures auger fillers and packaging machinery. Auger's fillers and packing machinery meet the stringent requirements for precise weight checking, bagging, and packaging. They are ideal for food and confectionery manufacturing, the pharmaceutical industry, and the fine chemical industries. Main products are auger fillers, vibratory fillers, and pump fillers, applying to filling and packaging all kinds of powders, granules, liquids, and gels.
Since its establishment, Auger has been committed to developing filling technology, continuously improving its technical capabilities, and striving for excellence in design and manufacturing. Aiming to meet customer requirements and achieve customer satisfaction by continually pursuing technological breakthroughs and developing customer-oriented fillers and packaging machines.
Auger's technology for auger shafts in filling machines makes every Auger filling machine unique and reliable. Auger’s core products are auger fillers that automatically meter and complete consecutive filling of various powder materials. Our fillers use in-house and patented augers and high-quality checkweighers developed with our collaborators to achieve accurate filling.
In-house Developed Auger Shafts of Premium Quality
Auger develops high-quality auger fillers, and the filling outcome is comparable to the auger filling result of counterparts leading the international market. We understand that the size of powder particles influences fluidity and the amount of dust produced during the filling process. The size of powder particles also affects the internal pressure generated in the barrel and the auger shaft. The smaller the particles, the higher the fluidity, and the lower the stability of the internal pressure. Therefore, the technical details of the auger shaft in a filler are critical.
At Auger, they develop different auger shafts for filling powder of varying particle sizes. Auger fillers can be classified into free-flow (ideal for powders or granules with good fluidity) and low-free-flow (ideal for filling powders with low fluidity).
Auger’s Quest for Filling Accuracy
Auger’s fillers are equipped with a high-precision auger shaft. The metering can reach a tolerance of ±1%. The filling volume of each filling unit of Auger’s filling and packaging machine is controlled by corresponding pulses from the auger shaft driven by a servo motor system. Simultaneously, through the weight data fed by the linked feedback system, the system can automatically adjust the auger shaft’s rotating speed. This feedback system ensures that the accuracy of the filling volume meets the design and remains stable. The hosting server receives the count of pulses. Then it adjusts each filling amount and the internal pressure in the raw material barrel to maintain the stability and high accuracy of the filling output.
The definition of filling accuracy of an auger filler varies, depending on the filling volume and a product’s compound. For example, for the 3-in-1 coffee powder mix, each coffee manufacturer's recipe is different, and the composition ratio of ingredients is different. For the same 50g filling, different recipes and different composition ratios of ingredients will result in different accuracy settings for the filler.
