Filling equipment

Filling machines are among the equipment frequently used in the food industry. They serve to fill a particular product into its respective containers. They are intended for pouring beverages, sauces, yogurt, vegetable oils, alcoholic drinks and other liquids, viscous substances, and paste-like products into plastic or glass bottles, jars, and other containers. They are also commonly employed for packing flour, cocoa powder, sugar and powdered sugar, spices, and similar loose or powdered goods into boxes, packages, or containers. They form a part of the packaging line; they are not used on their own, unlike dosing dispensers.

Stuffing machines can also be used in the food industry. They serve to insert fillings inside a product or on its surface. They are used in the meat industry, but also in confectionary, baked-goods, and other fields for dosing creams, paste-like, or viscous fillings in cakes, eclairs, buns, donuts, and other pastry snacks. They allow you to measure out jams, pastes, and creams by weight or volume in a pulsed, and continuous operating modes. They can work both with raw semi-finished products as well as at the final stage with already finished products. They can be used on their own or as part of a production line. Both automatic and semiautomatic options are available.
