Powder Filling Machines are Making Packaging a Breeze. Thanks to Technology!

  • September 19, 2016

There are plenty of methods that a company can pick for the purpose of filling their product containers, and dry filling has hit the market by storm. Many products are packaged in their dry state, such as the case for medicinal capsules and other granular products, such as sugar, a basic commodity used all over the world on a daily basis. Without dry filling machines, you would be waiting for weeks just to refresh your stocks of the sweet stuff.

Thanks to technology, we are now able to pack hundreds of packs of sugar in as little as a minute. Medicinal tablets too can be packaged into their portable containers at rates that allow the demand for them to be kept at bay. The speeds alone have been as a result of technology improvements in the packaging line of work, effectively making the entire process a breeze.

How they work is nothing short of a technological innovation, machines that detect the level of substance in a bottle and stop the pouring in of more, along with capping and closing robotic arms, these are the common settings that are behind some of the most essential products we see on shelves in supermarkets and pharmacies worldwide.

From moving a product’s container into the right place, pouring in the dry product into them up to a predetermined level, mostly marked with a laser, to automatically stopping when full. Those alone form more than enough motives to replace any other systems of packaging, especially those that end up with one bottle full and another almost full, with others overfilled.

Maintaining equal masses of products as well as packing more than previously possible quantities for delivery; these feats have made businesses profitable, with and almost all companies using dry filling machines are achieving their targets every single day.

The next phase after dry filling is the capping process, most wheel-model dry filling machines include a hand to place the cap on and seal the lid at the same time that other two product containers are being filled, making them three times faster than any person doing the work manually.

For plastic packaged products, powder filling machines come in as many hybrid forms as there are products to be inserted into the plastics. Sealing the bags with heat and dye around the edges, as well as labeling them in the same line make up for why dry filling machines are the only option going for.

Fruit packaging, and other time sensitive products, all get airtight sealed and pushed to delivery vans for distribution in way less time than they would have a few decades ago. If your company moves dry or semi solid products, consider dry packaging and realize the efficiency and cost savings that come into the picture in as little as an hour of production. All this could not have been possible if not for the technology and subsequent developments to systems in the packaging lines back when most of the work was done by hand.
