The working principle of cotton inserter

The function of the cotton inserter:

High speed cotton inserter is a specialized equipment used to inject cotton into various types of containers such as bottles, boxes, and bags, in order to maintain the stability of the products inside the container. It is widely used in industries such as pharmaceuticals, health products, and food.

Working principle of cotton inserter

Manually load the cotton from the cotton barrel into the cotton feeding device and then start the equipment. After the equipment automatically runs, the cotton feeding device feeds the cotton into the tearing roller. When the fed cotton reaches the set length, the fixed length device clamps the cotton, and the tearing roller tears the cotton. The torn cotton flowers are fed into the limit guide groove. When the rotary table sends the cotton duct into the cotton filling station, the lower cotton filling cylinder plugs the cotton from the guide groove into the cotton duct, The rotary table automatically sends the catheter into the next station, and when it reaches the bottle mouth position, the cotton filling cylinder will stuff the cotton inside the catheter into the bottle.

The equipment automatically puts the bottle in position, and at the same time, the previous bottle is stuffed with cotton twice to prevent the cotton from exceeding the bottle mouth and affecting the capping and sealing of the next process; The number of times cotton can be stuffed into each bottle can be set as needed.
