While many liquid product manufacturers install fully automatic packaging machines, not every business may require a fully automated system at this stage of their growth. Sometimes, semi-automatic filling machines are the best solution for facilities with fewer production volumes or smaller-scale operations. For manufacturers who need something faster than manual filling but don’t yet have the capabilities to expand to fully automatic, semi-automatic machines are the best answer. You can find your semi-automatic solutions at Filamatic.
What Is a Semi-Automated Packaging Machine?
Semi-automated packaging machines involve manual input at some stage, but they are much quicker than completely manual processes. For instance, when using semi-automatic filling machines, an operator will place containers correctly and press the necessary switches. The machine handles the job of filling the containers precisely and quickly. The operator then carries them to the next part of the process.
Decreased Labor Costs
Letting a machine fill a container or multiple containers at once speeds up the process and lowers your labor costs. If you have a small staff, this frees up your employees to do more important tasks like quality control, cleaning, and customer service.
Increased Fill Accuracy
Semi-automatic filling machines have preset fill levels that will deliver the right amount of product. Unlike manual filling, you won’t risk overfilling or wasting product or underfilling, which can drive away customers. The machines also fill the containers neatly, avoiding spills and slipping hazards in your facility.
Secure Capping and Closures
Semi-automatic capping machines will tighten the caps with the right amount of torque. You won’t risk damaging your product with over-tightening, and you won’t risk product leakage or spoiling from an under-tightened cap.
Another advantage is that these filling machines are easy to set up and start using. You won’t need to spend weeks understanding how to use these machines before benefiting from their services. When you find your semi-automatic filling machines at Filamatic, you also gain access to our training and set-up services that make handling these machines even easier.
Once your machines are set up, your staff will appreciate that they are required to do fewer monotonous tasks that can mentally and physically tire your staff much faster.
