If you’re in the filling business you’ve probably tossed around the pros and cons of in-line fillers and rotary fillers. Something to consider for this is that you don’t want to build up amajor production line with a whole bunch of in-line fillers. In-line filling equipment only needs low production speeds, which can be appealing to smaller production companies. The problem is that at some point in time, you’re looking at higher speed production equipment. When this happens, you have to go rotary.
Rotary fillers make more sense for high-speed production lines. These net weight fillers are efficient at producing large volumes on an automated filler or capper line with a minimum number of operators. More important than anything else is the rotary filler’s ability to perform net weight filling, which can reduce product waste so greatly that the savings will cover the cost of the equipment.
With true net weight filling that’s offered by the rotary filler you can measure to a more precise number. This is done by continuously weighing the container during the fill cycle and again once the cycle is finished.
Don’t take this as an insult to in-line fillers. Saving money in the production department makes sense for smaller companies that aren’t putting out as much product. The distinction is that once your company grows – and hopefully it will! – it’s a better investment to replace your in-line with a rotary filler. Adding more in-line fillers will delay the issue, not solve it.
There’s no answer to whether in-line or rotary fillers are better. Each meets different needs depending on the company that is buying them. While rotary fillers are more practical if a company has a heavy output, smaller manufacturers would benefit from the simplicity of an in-line filler.
