Rotary machines are employed in high-volume manufacturing and can handle a variety of materials, such as powders and granules. While they are helpful machines and necessary for maintaining high production levels, it’s not always easy choosing one for your business.

So today, we’re going to talk about some of the things you should look for when choosing a continuous rotary machine. Before we dive into that, let’s get a brief introduction about rotary machines, their components, how they work, and what they’re used for.

What is a Rotary Machine?

The rotary machine consists of the following components:

  • Funnels
  • A station turret
  • Feed Conveyor
  • Timing Screws
  • Rotating star wheel
  • Rotating table

A rotary machine works as product is continuously poured into funnels that are mounted on multi-position turrets surrounding the machine. A built-in feed conveyor transports containers to the turret. Components such as the timing screw and star wheel make space and position containers in the turret.

Vacuum wheel/Auger drives with variable speeds constantly run to provide correct product dispensing. Variable turret speeds are used to alter production rates. Additional circular stations for sealing, capping, and labeling are found on many rotary machines.

Uses of a Rotary Machine

So now that we know what a rotary machine is and how it works, let’s take a quick look at its uses.

The high accuracy Rotary Fillers are used for filling; powdered, granular and viscous materials at medium and high rates. One or more filling stations may be used, depending on product flow characteristics and container types. Some rotary auger fillers can only fulfill one kind of product, while others can fill a wide range of items.

Typically, rotary auger fillers are custom designed to easily interact with various filing systems such as augers, cups, and check weighers to offer consistent, accurate, and dependable filling. Because of the vast range of needs, rotary filling equipment is tailored to your exact specifications.

Rotary machines can also fill rigid containers rapidly and efficiently in various industries, including beverages, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, industrial and agricultural chemicals, pet products, powders, granules, etc.

Criteria for Choosing Rotary Machines

Almost all filling machines are made to order for the specific product and application at hand. While there are several elements to consider, and those factors may vary from project to project, there are a handful that will almost always necessitate some attention for each job. Below, we’ll go over some of the more common factors that you should consider when choosing rotary machines:

  • To guarantee that the filler used can handle the task, a customer must evaluate the product’s viscosity to be filled.
  • The number of filling stations and turrets varies based on the required production rate.
  • The user interface should be simple and easy to use.
  • Easy to clean and should have a dust retention system
  • Machine parts must be made of food-grade stainless steel that comes into touch with the product
  • Simple format changing without the need of tools
  • Self-aligning hopper coupling, fast disconnect

Why Choose AMS Continuous Rotary Machines?

1. Scale Production with Less Downtime

The rotary fillers available in the market do not provide accurate filling or downtime, making them more expensive and inefficient. They are also slow in operation, which affects production demands.

On the other hand, AMS indexing and continuous motion rotary filler machines are efficient in handling complicated container products and have less downtime, so you can focus on scaling production. Furthermore, the AMS rotary filling machine enhances the efficiency with high-speed accuracy, making it very cost-effective.

2. Cost-Effective and Long Lasting

The rotary machines available in the market are difficult to adjust with the existing filling lines, requiring many modifications to the rotary equipment before it can be integrated. This slows down the production making it more costly.

Unlike classic in-line fillers, AMS continuous motion rotary fillers don’t require sophisticated integrations, making them ideal for any production line. They also produce minor wear on their parts, making them less expensive in the long run.

3. High Production Speeds

When it comes to speed, our AMS filling machines deliver smooth production speeds of up to 700 containers per minute by combining AMS auger fillers or combination scales with up to 36 station turrets.

AMS continuous rotary filling machine surpasses in speed filling as compared to classic in-line auger fillers as well. Take the example of A-700’s continuous motion rotary filler, which delivers higher operating speeds and better fillings, making it the most demanding filling machine in the market


AMS indexing and continuous motion rotary fillers are the best in the industry. With our simple, low-handling, high-speed line, less wear on their parts, and precise filling equipment, you can without a doubt rely on AMS rotary filling machines to meet your specific needs.
