Benefits of Automatic Filling Machines
The increasing automation of the manufacturing and packaging industry has led to a reduction in production time, reduced wastage, improved system performance and process control.
The automation of the packaging process has created many benefits for packaging companies. There are a number of ways in which automation can improve the packaging process:
Reliability and Consistency
Automatic filling machines permit a repeatable, reliable and consistent fill cycle – whether the fill is based on a level of produce, the volume of produce, the weight of produce or another such measurement. Automatic fillers remove inconsistencies and eliminate uncertainty from the filling process.
Higher Speeds of Operation
The most apparent benefit of automatic filling machines is the higher speeds of operation that they offer. Automatic fillers use power conveyors and multiple filling heads to fill more containers per cycle – whether you are filling thin, free-flowing products like water and certain powders, or highly viscous products such as jelly or pastes. Hence, the production is faster when using automatic filler machines.
Simple Control Interface
Most modern filling machines come with an easy to operate touchscreen interface and are controlled by PLCs. Indexing times, pump speeds, fill times and other similar parameters can be easily and quickly set up by the operator. The ‘configuration’ is recorded by the PLC so it can be reused in the future.
Automatic Filling Machines can be configured to handle a range of products and container shapes and sizes. The right packaging filling machine offers ease of changeovers with simple adjustments for companies that package multiple products. This allows the downtime to be minimised and production maximised.
Automatic packaging machines need to be acquired keeping the future in mind. Many
modern automatic packaging machines are upgradeable and offer the potential to increase capacity, add more filling heads and be compatible with other fillers so a variety of products can be packed on the same machine.
