There are several types of filling machines available in the United States, depending on what your needs are. It is possible to fill several different products by using these different types of filling machines. When it comes to choosing the best filling machine for your operation, the decision is complex as you will need to consider a number of different factors including the characteristics of your product, the fill size, the characteristics of your container, your daily production needs, the environment that the machine will be located in, and federal and state regulatory issues. In addition, you will want to consider the cost of the hardware versus the performance of it. In other words, is the cost of the filling machine worth it based on how it will perform?

There are some very expensive filling machines available that are typically out of reach for the small or medium sized businesses. Additionally, there are some very cheap filling machines including Chinese and other foreign imports that will cost the owners more to maintain than they might be worth. When considering a filling machine for your operation you should look for the technologies that are going to provide you with the most versatility, reliability, and flexibility for the best price.

When it comes to the average cost for a filling machine in the United States, it will really depend on how large of a machine that you are looking for. Some of the smaller machines will run anywhere from $1500 to $2500. These are the machines that do not have a large output and may be a good choice for a small company that does not have large production needs. Larger filling machines can run anywhere from $8000 to over $100,000 depending on the company’s needs.
