Oats Series

Packing oats with long shelf-life thanks to a new compressing technology

A long shelf-life and an anytime perfect product is essential for Oat Filling Machinery. Thanks to our compressing technology we can reach this. Hereby our system sets a new benchmark regarding quality and efficiency.


The oats are filled into the can with an auger dosing system. At the point of filling, the can will be even overfilled, as oats have a relatively low bulk density. The product is aftewards pushed into the can with the unique compressing technology, so there is no air anymore. Therefore the maximal possible volume of the can will be used, air is eliminated, so the oats fulfill all requirements to quality and shelf-life

Swiss Can filling machines have an unique automatic optimizing process in order to adjust to the permanently changing filling conditions – not only in favour of the accuracy, but also for the capacity. After an unique basic adjustment of the requested parameters to the various filling products, the requested filling as per product, weight, tolerance, etc. can be retrieved at any time via HMI. The machine calculates the respective adjustments itself from the parameters and optimises automatically during the current fillings. Changes of the conditions as differences in bulk material (piled weight, flow rate) or in the environment (temperature, air humidity) are recognized automatically and corrected accordingly.

On our filling machines, the filling product is vibrated into the can (if necessary) in order to attain the right free space (between product and lid). To prevent dust developments, dust collection is effectively carried out at the right positions. The filled can is weighted with feed-back control. A can that does not fulfill the parameters is automatically rejected. The memory verifies the accuracy and the weighted quantities easily and the results are saved on a USB-Stick or via Master Control.
