Why this tube filling machine is much in demand is because it helps in reducing unnecessary wastage, eases operations, and reduces cost thereby boosting volume production.
To start with, a simple tube filling machine or an ointment filling machine can have a maximum of eight heads. As the production up-gradation increases more fill heads can be a necessity and the versatile machine should be ready for this customization and up-gradation. The model of the machine you choose should depend on factors like the bottle size and shape and the product itself.

Some models of this machine provide a bottom fill with a shut-off nozzle which enhances the cleanliness in filling and also the accuracy of the volume filled. The initial investment could be a little more but once in use, its operational costs are the most minimal.
Semi-Automatic Tube Filling Machine– They come in small sizes and hence apt for small to medium scale production. It is easy to operate the machine and comes with different designs, shapes, and capacities. Digital temperature control can ensure that the power supply is also maintained. If you need to supplement your fully automatic machine, this could be used as well. It could ensure smooth functioning in event of any failure of the main machine.
