Tube filling machine: definition and operation
Tube fillers are machines used to fill tubes of different characteristics with liquid, semi-solid or high viscosity products in the cleanest, quickest and most accurate way. Their main function is to maintain the necessary parameters for filling the tubes in which the product will be presented to customers, while maintaining the quality and hygiene required.
Tube fillers are used for filling and packaging cosmetic creams such as lip gloss or mascara. Also toothpaste, ointments, gels and other products from the pharmacy or food area.
A semi-automatic or automatic tube filling machine can be set to operate at variable speed. In the process it can dose different volumes, up to a maximum, and adapt to different tube characteristics (diameter and height). In addition, it can receive plastic or aluminium tubes according to your design. The use of industrial filling machines increases the efficiency of the process, helps to reduce the cost of production and reduces the workload of the factory staff.
