Tube Filler is a kind of equipment used to fill up and seal various products into tubes. It is a multifunctional machine that fills, folds, and seals tubes, with the additional capability to print batch numbers, expiry dates, etc.
The machine works very well with aluminum, plastic, and laminate tubes. The machine is made in different sizes, shapes, capacities, and designs to fit the needs of the manufactures.
What is Tube Filler used for?
You can use tube fillers to paste semi-liquid substances into tubes. You can use tube filler machines to fill sealants, creams, adhesives, cosmetics, greases, ointments, and other products. Depending on the design of the machine, you can use them to fill, seal, fold, and emboss tubes.
What are the Benefits of Using a Tube Filer?
You need a tube filler machine due to the following:
  • It is usable in filling all types of tubes, shapes, sizes, or capacities. This machine can fill and seal tubes of up to 1.6 liters. It can also fill tubes with irregular shapes and can multitask by filling both viscous and less viscous products.
  • The machine makes the packaging of creams, grease, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical products easy.
  • This machine is flexible and easy to operate because it has simple software programming that is configured to fill tubes.
  • It has a large touchscreen used to control the machine. Graphical status for monitoring the operation process is also available.
  • The equipment has an in-built peristaltic pump that is used to set it up in a much quicker way.
  • It works at high speed and accurately with or without minimum wastage of products. The optimization of speed in filling has increased the company’s returns.
  • There is a reduced labor charge since the human labor needed is very minimal, if not any. The only person required is the machine operator, who will ensure the machine is operating efficiently. The use of this machine is cost-effective and increases returns since money for compensating human labor is not required.
  • The machine has a large and flexible surface. This helps in allowing the accommodation of many tubes during the filling process.
  • This machine is very accurate in filling the tubes with the same quantity of products. Unlike the use of manual filling, which may result in varying quantities of products in tubes. Filling products of the same quantity into the tubes manually consumes time, which in turn affects the entire process.
  • It can be changed over rapidly, and this promotes the filling of various products. It also helps in increasing its efficiency.
  • The use of this machine helps to shield the products from any form of contamination.
  • It prevents the operator from harmful products like pesticides and other chemicals since human contact with the products is minimized.
  • This machine produces less noise during operation.
  • It is easy to maintain and clean.
  • When there is no container, there is no filling.
  • Wastage of products being filled is minimized through the use of this machine.
When should you Use Tubes to Package Pharmaceutical Products?
  • Use tubes when the product efficacy can be compromised when exposed to light, air, or any harsh environmental factors.
  • When the products are in creamy forms like ointments, creams, or lotions, they are very difficult to package. But this machine makes it easy.
  • When the producing industry needs to distribute its creamy products in different sizes and shapes easily.
