MaxLoft Carded Pillow Filling Equipment

The MaxLoft Carded Pillow Filling Equipment consists of three different aspects of the process including fiber blending/opening, web forming and finish system.

The MaxLoft Carded Pillow Filling Equipment can transform your plant into a highly efficient and higher profit operation.

The line consists of everything you need including:

The MaxLoft Fiber Blending and Opening Line includes multiple Feed Hoppers that begin to opening the fiber and weigh the individual fibers to get an accurate blend percentage. Once the different fiber are weighed and layered in the Blend Conveyor, the fibers are conveyed into the Fine Opener. The MaxLoft Fine Opener will further open the fiber and properly blend the different fibers together.

Once blended, a typical MaxLoft pneumatic conveying or feed system is used to transport the fiber from the blend line to the Card machine. The feed system could include features such as inline hump magnet, active metal extractor, differential pressure switch, site tube, material fan and duct work.  A negative pressure system is used to reduce the amount of static and airborne fiber or dust.

The MaxLoft Card Machine will process the fibers at a high rate and produce a uniform quality web. The web will be lapped to the correct width of the pillow.  The MaxLoft Pillow Lapper is able to produce a travel or airline pillow up to the largest body pillow on the market. The MaxLoft Card Machine includes an auto doffed and self threading feature.  This will allow the operator to initiate the Card Feed Rolls then monitor the machine while the system automatically begins running product. The Carded web will enter the MaxLoft Pillow Lapper.  The Lapper will layer the fiber to the correct product width, thickness and weight. The Lapper includes a MaxLoft Hanging Floor Apron.  The height of the apron can be adjusted depending on the product thickness. All the product specs and machine settings are displayed on the touch screen.

The Carded and Cross Lapped web enters the MaxLoft Pillow Wind Up.  This machine automatically rolls the lapped fiber to the correct weight, cuts and discharges the fiber batt into the semi automatic MaxLoft Pillow Stuffer

An operator will insert a pillow tick or shell onto the MaxLoft Pillow Stuffer, then cut to size and weight fiber batt will automatically be fed into the pillow shell.

A typical MaxLoft PLC electrical control system includes recipe management which allows the operator to change products with a touch of the screen,  The production line can be monitored from a smart phone or tablet. The MaxLoft control system includes features such as colored touch screen monitor, air conditioning, lighting, password protection, self diagnostics, CAD graphics, active weighting system, trending, motion detecting safety system, flash drive storage, battery backup and VPN access for remote support.
