Major upgrades have been recently performed on the LM-270L, one of MMC’s best-selling machines, making it more robust and able to reach higher throughput.

 

The basic principle stays unchanged: as all our standard cap lining machines, the new LM-270LX utilizes a multi-station rotary indexer to receive caps into a pocket wheel in multiple lanes.  While the adaptor ring of the LM-270LX is backward compatible with the previous LM-270L toolings, the new indexer is more robust and can now reach 200 cycles per minute.

 

Several other features were enhanced with the following key highlights:

 

  • The main RAM assembly has been redesigned to make the connecting rod between the lower punch plate and the crankshaft more robust;
  • The paper feed assembly has been redesigned to achieve better control over the co-action of the lower and upper rolls, making the tracking of the lining material more precise;
  • A new thru-beam sensor has been integrated to the system to allow for better web motion detection;
  • The new drive support assembly allows for better access and maintenance.

 

With those improvements, the LM-270LX is a high-speed entry-level precision lining machine capable of processing two and now three caps at a time, with a throughput of up to 600 caps per minute depending on the operating mode and the diameter of the caps.
