Filling machines are used to fill containers such as bottles, tubs and pouches. Each varies in what they handle, from liquids to dry products. These include auger/agitator, aseptic packaging, bag/sack filling, bottle filling machinery to specification, standard bottle filling machines, extended shelf life bottle filling, cook in film, fill and seal machines, fillers,
flow filling machines, positive displacement pump fillers and tablet fillers. The methods they use for filling can vary, e.g. the number of pieces rather than weight would be used for tablets and pills. Other examples of filling machines include capping machines, tube-filling, powder, volumetric, cream and automatic or semi automatic liquid filling machines.
