In general packaging machines can be categorized under two types.
In both types of machines different filling systems are used depending on the nature of the product. Common filling systems which are used include
|A. CUP FILLER|
|Products like tea powder, free flowing powders, rice, pulses, peanuts, etc are packed on cup fillers. In cup fillers the product to be packed has to be free flowing. Cup filler is a faster & cheapest filling system but accuracy is on a lower side.
|B. AUGER FILLER|
|This system is the only solution for non-free flowing powders like milk powder, spices, hygroscopic powders, insecticides & pesticide powders etc
|C. WEIGH FILLER|
|This filling system is used for packing non homogeneous products like Dry snacks, Potato Wafers, Dry-fruits or any product which has to be packed in different weights & where the accuracy requirements are on higher side.
|D. SYRINGE / PISTON FILLER|
|This filling system is used for packing all kinds of liquids like milk, water, oils, shampoos or any viscous materials like Toothpaste, Grease, etc.
