There is a high requirement of packaging machines that can provide continuous filling of even and uneven material, in packaging products. Conventional filling machines are not compatible with the uneven size of the granule. Further, these filling machines are standardized to fill specific quality in packs, thus faces issue to switch from bulk to small quantity.
Vibratory filling machines are also known as vibratory fillers. Vibratory filling machines allow continuous filling of the material into the packaging product. The machines filling operation is not affected due to the size and shape of the granule. The machine comprises of three essential parts- the hopper, feeder, and weighting system. The material that needs to be filled is fed in the hopper, through the hopper, the material enters to the feeder, the vibratory feeder has trays. The microcontroller controls the speed of the tray. Microcontroller maintains the speed of the tray, to the required filling speed. Then, the material travels from feeder to the weighing system. The required quantity is weighted and filled up in the packaging product.
The machines have sensors that allow filling of the material, only when the container is present. This reduces the possibility of spillage of the product. The vibratory filling machine can quickly switch from small quantity to bulk size.
These machines are easily cleaned, thus eliminating the clogging of the material. As collaging of the material in the machines affects the continuity of the product. This factor further reduces the maintenance cost of the machine.
The vibratory filling machines account for about 2-3% of overall filling machines market. The global packaging machines market is expected to expand with a CAGR of 5.7%, by the 2028 end. The pricing analysis is done by the machine type. The global vibratory filling machine value is in (million) and the global volume taken in (units).
The figure below represents the packaging machinery split in the year 2016. The global packaging machines market was valued at 46.7 billion in the year 2016. The filling machines segment accounts for about 37.6%. The global packaging machines market is expected to expand at CAGR of 5.4%, during the forecast period. The high demand for filling machines is from the food & beverage industry. There is a requirement for the high speed, efficient packaging machines, with low backlogs which conventional filling machines having low speed and low productivity, were not able to meet. As, the vibratory filling machine is far away from these demerits, therefore, they are preferred by the end users. Thus, the vibratory filling machines market is expected to grow at a higher pace compared to conventional packaging machines.
