Federal Unveils Bulk-FIL™ Robotic Tote Filler at Pack Expo

Aug 04, 2023

WAUKESHA, Wis., Aug. 4, 2023 – Federal, a leading manufacturer of net weight and level filling systems, is showcasing a groundbreaking fully automatic robotic tote and drum filler at Pack Expo Las Vegas from September 11-13. Known as Bulk-FIL™, this innovative weight filler has an impressive array of features designed to produce accurate, reliable filling for bulk containers while improving operator safety and reducing maintenance. The automatic Bulk-FIL™ Filler will be on display alongside three other established net weight fillers.

The Bulk-FIL Automatic Tote Filler integrates a robotic arm to transform the way totes, drums, and jerry cans are filled. The robotic arm automates the entire filling process, ensuring unmatched precision, efficiency, and safety. It offers automated changeovers, automated clean-in-place capabilities, and a vision system to identify containers independently, which eliminates the need for specific container configurations. Bulk-FIL also boasts significant uptime improvements compared to gantry style fillers as a result of the reliability and reduced maintenance required for the robotic arm.

In addition to Bulk-FIL, Federal will showcase a full line-up of filling solutions, including:

  • Xact-FIL®: A cutting-edge Rotary Weight Filler and Capper Monobloc system that combines accurate net weight filling and capping on a single frame, streamlining the production process.
  • Mod-FIL®: A versatile, accurate Modular Inline Net Weight Filler that offers seamless integration of 2-station modules as production demands increase for containers from 250mL to 5 gallons.
  • Simpl-FIL™: An accurate and efficient Single-Station Net Weight Filler designed for startups with low-speed production or lab and testing settings.

“At Federal, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of liquid filling technology,” said Will Casey, Vice President and General Manager of Federal. “In the last two years, we’ve created a robust lineup of weight fillers to meet the needs of growing businesses, from startups to large corporations. Our newest offerings, including the Bulk-FIL Tote Filler, demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with the most advanced, reliable, and accurate solutions in the industry.”
