Commonly referred to as an entry-level machine. The handheld benchtop filling machines are a starter option for owning your own filling equipment.


What is a Handheld Filling Machine?

A handheld filling machine is also known as a semi-automatic benchtop. The benchtop filling machine is usually manually operated, a handheld liquid filling unit that is easily moveable around your laboratory or cleanroom setting.


Start with the Benchtop

The semi-automatic benchtop is the best for an entry-level, quality handheld filling machine. Depending on your application and production needs, there are more robust benchtop ‘heavy-duty’ filling machines that can be placed on a stand or table to dispense your product into containers. This model can also become a scalable solution that grows with your business using an HMI (touchscreen user-interface). Certain benchtops can also be modified to become a turnkey fill-cap-label filling system, also known as the Proline.

Benchtop filling machines can handle a variety of difficult applications, such as flammable products and more viscous liquids. Whether your product is less-viscous/water, semi-viscous/average-viscosity, or extremely viscous (gel, cream, lotion, or balm type product). In addition, they can operate with a variety of metering pump options.

Why Choose the Benchtop?

Cannabis businesses should be excited about the pinpoint accurate filling the Benchtop offers. The Benchtop filling unit is affordable, quick to set up, easy to use, able to offer quick changeovers, and a quality filling machine. It is a great solution for entry-level solutions.
