Introduction:

A bottling filler, as its name suggests, is an integral component in the packaging world, designed to dispense a specific quantity of product into a variety of container types, notably bottles. This sophisticated piece of machinery is designed to ensure precision and consistency in the bottling process. The substance being dispensed can range from liquids to powders, granules, and even pastes, with different machines tailored for each type of product. The technology that drives these devices is varied, with some employing volumetric filling, others utilising vacuum filling, and yet others relying on a weight system to ensure the correct amount of product is filled.

The operation of these machines is an orchestrated symphony of mechanical precision. The bottles are typically fed onto a conveyor and guided into position beneath the filler nozzles. Once in place, the machine dispenses the exact quantity of product into each bottle. After filling, the bottles continue their journey to the next stage, which may be capping or sealing. The speed and efficiency of this process are vital in industries where high output is required.

Bottle fillers find their applications across a multitude of industries. In the food and beverage sector, they are used to fill bottles with drinks, sauces, and oils. The pharmaceutical industry relies on them to accurately fill bottles with medicines, be they liquid or granular. In the cosmetics industry, everything from perfumes to creams is bottled using this machinery. The chemical industry, too, utilises these machines for packaging everything from cleaning solutions to motor oils. Thus, the humble bottling filler, in its myriad forms, plays a pivotal role in the operations of an array of industries.

Before embarking on the purchase of such a machine, there are a host of factors one must diligently consider. Just as one wouldn't procure a motorcar without first examining its engine and service history, so too should one approach the acquisition of bottling equipment with a meticulous eye.

The first point of consideration should be the type of product the machine is intended to fill. Is it a liquid or a powder, a viscous substance or a granular one? Different filling machines are designed to handle different materials, and it's crucial to ensure the machine you're considering is suitable for your specific product.

Next, one should consider the container or bottle that will be filled. Its size, shape, and material can all influence the machine's compatibility. Certain machines may have limitations when it comes to the size of the container they can fill, while others may not be suitable for certain materials. It's also essential to consider the speed at which the machine can fill these containers. All these parameters should be checked with the agent from Exapro who will verify with the seller to make sure that it is suitable for your needs.

The condition of the machine is another essential factor. A brand-new machine may seem like an attractive option, but a well-maintained used machine could offer comparable performance at a more economical price. Whether new or used, it's important to inspect the machine for any signs of wear or damage and to check its service history. We will always recommend you to travel to the seller's location in order to make sure that the machine is as stated in the advertisement. 

Main factors to choose a capping machine

Before purchasing a bottling filler, it's essential to carefully consider the following technical data, attributes, and options to ensure it aligns with your specific requirements:

  • Product Type: Is your product a liquid, powder, granule, or paste? Different machines are designed for different product types;
  • Container Specifications: What is the size, shape, and material of the bottle or container you will be filling? Certain machines may have limitations on the containers they can accommodate;
  • Speed and Volume: What is your desired production capacity? The machine should be able to meet your required output, both in terms of speed (bottles per minute) and volume (product quantity per bottle);
  • Filling Method: Different machines use different filling methods, such as volumetric, vacuum, or weigh filling. The choice of method can affect both accuracy and speed;
  • Machine Condition: Whether you're considering a new or used machine, check its condition for any signs of wear or damage. For used machines, also check the service history;
  • Price: Does the machine fit within your budget? Remember to factor in the cost of any necessary installation, maintenance, or repairs;
  • Space Requirements: Does the machine fit within your available space? Check the machine's dimensions and ensure you have enough room for operation and maintenance;
  • Power Requirements: Ensure the machine's power requirements are compatible with your facility's power supply;
  • Regulatory Compliance: Does the machine comply with the regulatory standards of your industry and region? This is especially important in industries such as food and pharmaceuticals;
  • Manufacturer and Model: Consider the reputation of the manufacturer and the specific model of the machine. Quality, reliability, and after-sales service can vary widely.

Consider all the logistical aspects of buying

Transferring a second-hand bottling filler from one factory to another is a complex process that requires careful planning and consideration. 

The logistical challenge begins with disassembly, where the machine must be carefully broken down into manageable components. This process should be carried out by experienced technicians to prevent damage. 

Once disassembled, each part must be meticulously packed and secured for transport, ensuring their protection during the journey. 

The transportation itself requires careful planning, with considerations around route, vehicle type, and handling equipment. We advise you to consult with your local shipping company but we can also try to recommend other companies.

Upon arrival at the new location, the machine must be rebuilt and calibrated in the new site with the same degree of care and skill. 

Additionally, now is a good time to update or perform any necessary maintenance on the equipment. 

Furthermore, it is crucial to consider the machine's compatibility with the new factory's power supply and floor layout. 

Consulting with a professional machinery moving company that has experience with packaging machinery can help ensure a smooth and successful transition.
