All-Fill’s testing lab is a great asset for new and current customers to utilize for any application. This free service allows us to determine the best machine, model, and most importantly, tooling for your product and specifications. At All-Fill, we make this process very simple and easy.
All-Fill customers are encouraged to send sample product and containers to our facility in Exton, PA for evaluation. We strongly recommend that our customers send in their sample products as well as any containers the products will fill so we can give accurate test results.
In addition to sending samples, All-Fill encourages all customers to visit the test lab when running samples. “Every time a customer visits the All-Fill test lab, they come away understanding their product characteristics and machinery and tooling better,” says Jack Mazur, Regional Sales Manager for Chicago, Illinois and the Southeast USA. The lab tests are perfect for customers looking to buy new machinery, looking to improve an existing auger filler installation or customers that simply need new tooling for a new product that they want to introduce to their packaging operation.
“In many cases, the users of All-Fill machinery simply run their auger fillers and they accept whatever results they get. If the users of All-Fill auger fillers took the time to understand their products and to understand all the auger tooling and auger tooling accessories, they can easily improve their packaging operation regarding filling rate, filling accuracy as well as cleanliness and the presentation of their filled product,” exclaims Bailey, a long-time All-Fill employee. When evaluating your sample products, All-Fill will test a variety of tooling combinations that will yield the best speed and accuracy. The test lab is run by Biff Bailey, an employee at All-Fill for the last 25 years.
When All-Fill tests a product, we always supply the customer with a lab test report. The lab test report will contain all pertinent information relating to the tooling and the performance of the product when filled. Most importantly, the lab test clearly identifies the auger and funnel combination as well as the cycle time. The cycle time may be the most important piece of information on the lab test report, it is extremely important for OEM (original machinery manufacturers) suppliers of All-Fill auger fillers as it will determine how fast their bag machine (typically vertical form fill seal or horizontal form fill seal) will operate. Typically, a lab test is run with around 20 sample weights and the “notes” section of the lab test really help to describe the challenges of any given product.
All-Fill highly encourages customers to take advantage of the free lab test services provided. In fact, it greatly benefits All-Fill as well as the user of our machinery.
