Capping machine

The FMT capping machines, entirely manufactured in stainless steel, are designed to permit the closing with or without steam of glass bottles and jars, through different types of caps.

The consolidated reliability, the easy format change and the high levels of vacuum and hygiene achieved, make these machines particularly suitable for the canned food and beverage sectors.

Thanks to the flexibility and modularity of their range, FMT Capping machines can be used both in low speed and high speed lines (up to 800 cpm).

Based on the different needs, in terms of production capacity and autonomy, different feeding models can be supplied with the machines.


The FMT feeders allow the automatic and uniform feeding of caps, from the loading hopper to the capping machine, orienting them correctly.

Depending on the speeds and on the required autonomy, various models make up the range of FMT caps feeders, with a production range reaching up to 900 cpm.

Since the FMT feeders can be installed in a close or remote position with respect to the Capping machines, they are proposed and designed according to the available spaces and to the specifications of each project.

Palletiser / Depalletiser

Robotic palletising and depalletising system for unpacked containers.

The system is designed and studied to receive containers from the filling line, place them on pallets which will then be placed in quarantine or in storage units to be labelled at a later date 

Subsequently, the pallets return to the Robot, which will depalletise the containers and send them to the secondary packaging line.

The system is tailor-made and gives the possibility of making maximum use of space available.

The possible coupling with suction cup pick-up systems and arms on the heads enables the combined pick-up of empty layer pads and empty pallets.

The technology of palletising and depalletising with robot was developed for both medium and high speeds.

The palletising and depalletising system with Robot has different customisation options. Its main feature is flexibility, as it is a technology that can be configured based on specific Customer’s requests:

  • Possibility of managing both the palletising and depalletising functions with a single Robot.
  • Various types of heads to be chosen according to the type of container, such as: metal cans, glass bottles and jars
  • Very fast format change
  • Expandable for increased production
  • High residual value of the robot over time
  • Reduced maintenance costs

Telescopic Filler

This technology is ideal for filling solid, diced, sliced and granular products inside glass or plastic containers and in cans.

This type of machine is generally used for filling legumes, mushrooms, corn and fruit salads.

Main characteristic of the FMT Telescopic Fillers is the flexibility: with the same machine it is possible to fill different types of products.

Different types of configurations are available in FMT range, in order to offer solutions for both for low and high speed.

The Telescopic Filler has different customisation options in relation to the type of product to be filled or the container to be processed:

  • Possibility of combining with Vacuum Fillers, for dosing the preserving liquid
  • Special system to facilitate dosing of irregular products, difficult to process

Weight Filler

This technology is ideal for filling granular products, in pieces, and in general for all those applications where the weight inside the container must be guaranteed.

For example, weight filling is used for soluble preparations, spices, chopped fruit and vegetables.

The main characteristic of this type of machines is their accuracy, as they are able to ensure the weight of the packaged product with very high precision.

Ease of use, extremely rapid format change and wide customisation possibilities are the main characteristics of the FMT weight filler range.

Within the FMT range, the weight technology is declined in the linear version, for medium-low speeds, and in the rotary version, for higher speeds.

Different customisation options are available for this type of filler, depending on the type of product to be filled or the container to be processed.

The FMT weight fillers are available in two different versions

Vacuum filler

Questa tecnologia è ideale per colmare i contenitori in vetro, plastica o metallo con differenti tipi di liquido di governo per prodotti come verdura, frutta, tonno e carne.

I liquidi di governo impiegati solitamente sono aceto, olio, salamoia, salse e  sciroppi.

L’operazione di colmatura avviene dopo aver aspirato l’aria esistente dentro al contenitore in cui è già presente il prodotto principale.

L’aria residua presente all’interno dello spazio di testa viene invece eliminata con un getto di vapore prima della chiusura del contenitore stesso (tramite capsulatrice o aggraffatrice).



La costruzione modulare ed estremamente personalizzabile delle colmatrici FMT le rende idonee ad essere utilizzate tanto nelle linee ad alta velocità quanto in quelle a medio- bassa capacità produttiva.

Per tutte le applicazioni in cui il dosaggio del liquido di governo sottovuoto non è richiesto, FMT è in grado di offrire ai propri clienti anche soluzioni con colmatrici lineari a pioggia.

In relazione alla tipologia di prodotto da riempire o al contenitore da lavorare, sono disponibili diverse opzioni, tra cui:

  • Predisposizione CIP per lavaggio interno tramoggia ed esterno
  • Gruppo di preparazione e riscaldamento dei liquidi di governo
