Most of the time, the type of products being packaged dictates the choice of auger filler or volumetric cup filler. However, sometimes the experience of the manufacturer, and sometimes the preference of the end user will select the filler machine. VTOPS summarizes the benefits of volumetric cup filler VS auger filler based on our own experience; please refer to the list below:

Cup fillers are often overlooked in favor of auger fillers. From VTOPS experience, coffee beans, rice, kidney beans, fine sugar, sprinkles, etc., are dust-free, free-flowing, and have uniform particles and a consistent shape that are ideal for filling with cup fillers. Because for these products, the cup filling has a good speed. Of course, some of these products are great for auger fillers; however, the products mentioned above can be filled faster and often more accurately with cup fillers.
