A filling machine a type of packaging equipment that is designed to fill packages before their shipment. It is common to see a filling machine located near the end of a production line and can be used to package industrial ingredients as well as commercial and consumer products.
The use of packaging equipment improves efficiency and reduces labor costs for many companies. Since many industrial operations produces or involve large quantities of small parts, they must have a way to manage those materials. For example, plastics manufacturing companies require access to large amounts of palletized plastic. Those plastics are produced by plastic suppliers and then loaded into containers by filling machines. Filling machines are often used to distribute small industrial products like screws, nuts, and bolts into packages to be shipped and sold in.
Bottles, jars, bags, cans, and many other containers can be used with filling machines. Solids and liquids are often distributed into containers and can be designed in different ways to accommodate each application. Many packaging machines may work together for one single product and they can be seen on a conveyor belt. For example, to make one box of cereal, a distribution center may need a conveyor with a filling machine, sealing machine, and labeling machine. Companies that invest in these kinds of machines are often times much more reliable to their clients.
