Manual filling

The products are totally hand-filled by operators.

This method is optimal for delicate products and products that are unevenly shaped.

They are placed carefully and effectively by applying manual filling, more correctly and more quickly when compared to packing by hand, as the operator does not have to spend time opening and closing the bag, but can concentrate on packing the items.

The Schur®StarLight Packaging Machine can be supplied with integrated direct printing units or labelling units.

Semi-automatic filling

Semi-automatic filling is operated partly automatically and partly by hand.

This method of filling can be applied to products that lend themselves towards infeed automation due to the product having a suitable profile for handling, although the process still requires an input of manual operation. The automated part of the process enables packing to be carried out at higher speeds than if packed totally manually.

The Schur®StarLight Packaging Machine can be supplied and integrated with semi-automated infeed filling, counting and weighing equipment such as a pocket infeed conveyor or a weigh counting scale.

The Schur®StarLight Packaging Machine can be supplied with integrated direct printing units or labelling units. 

​Fully automatic filling

Fully automatic filling is the process by which the products are placed into the bags totally by machinery and without manual handling.

This method of filling can be applied to products that lend themselves towards infeed automation due to the product having a suitable profile for handling, without the need for any manual operation other than initial feed of the product into the infeed system. This fully automated process is the quickest packing methid.

The Schur®StarLight Packaging Machine can be supplied and integrated with fully automated infeed filling, counting and weighing equipment such as a Bowl Feed Weighing machine or a robot.

The Schur®StarLight Packaging Machine can be supplied with integrated direct printing units or labelling units.

Post-filling equipment

The Schur®StarLight Packaging Machine is easily combined with an optional integrated inline printer or labelling unit.
