What is the difference between semi-automatic and fully automatic packaging machines?

At present, packaging machines can be divided into semi-automatic packaging machines and fully automatic packaging machines according to the degree of automation.Among them, the automatic packaging machine is mainly optimized for high-speed production and minimal manual intervention. A fully automatic production line consists of conveyor equipment that feeds the product into the packaging machine, a metering system unit that weighs the product, and a machine that puts the product into the bag. Its production efficiency will be higher than that of semi-automatic packaging machines, and it can save more labor costs. But on the other hand, such machines are easily limited by the type of product, and few places can be adjusted. Although a fully automatic packaging machine can provide a high-precision and high-consistency production process, you need to invest more in the upfront cost.

The semi-automatic packaging machine still requires a lot of manpower to operate the machine during the production process. For example, a machine can be equipped with an electronic scale to weigh dumplings, but it requires humans to load dumplings into bags and seal them. So its efficiency and accuracy will be lower than that of a fully automatic packaging machine. However, parts of a semi-automatic production line can be integrated with other machines to create a fully automatic system. If you’re on a lower budget, a semi-automatic packaging line is a great option.
