Automated packaging machines serve an important role in industrial packaging processes. Cup filling and sealing machines in particular have uses in many sectors. The food and beverage industry, for example, relies on sealed cups for a wide variety of pre-portioned packaged products.
While artisans or very small businesses may be able to package products by hand or with slower manual cup fillers and sealers, companies that move products in significant volume need to automate their packaging processes in order to keep up with demand.
Rather than commit to significant real estate, packaging machines, and skilled labor investments, most large manufacturers that require cup filling and cup sealing services find it more cost-effective to hire a contract packager that already has the infrastructure and manpower necessary to properly fill and seal cup-based products.
