Hanchen has pulled out the stops with this unit, providing a versatile machine at a very budget-friendly price.
Whereas CGOLDENWALL has concentrated on building machines that are specifically made for counting seeds and grain (admittedly of different types); this unit from Hanchen has a wider scope and is suitable for a wide range of weighing applications.
Just take a look at this list; the machine is designed so that finer substances such as flour, milk and coffee powder or even chemical powders can be measured and poured into receptacles.
Grains, beans, seeds, and fruit can also be processed. Beyond that spices, plastic beads, they even state that small electronic components will flow through the machine.
In fact, the design means that the machine is suitable for filling with dry materials measuring Φ1.2–10mm in size.
Note: the machine is not suitable for steel beads or wet materials. See tab below for a short questionnaire that will help you ascertain whether the machine is suitable for your needs.
As you can see, this makes the Hanchen particle weighing machine an extremely useful item suitable for a range of applications.
The principal method of how the machine works is quite simple. After you have poured the material into the top of the unit, set the desired weight of the sample, a vibrator will turn inside to ensure that the particles do not bind together.
This shaking of the material also helps fasten the processing speed, (i.e how quickly the materials flow through the unit).
An infrared sensor is positioned under the outlet, which then triggers the machine to start as soon as you put a receptacle beneath the outlet.
Your sample, or bag, box, etc can then be filled with the pre-set weight of material or until you remove the receptacle. (The unit will shut down if the sensor no longer detects the receptacle beneath the filling outlet.)
The transparent side to the machine allows you to see inside the filler to watch for any clogging etc. It is also easy to clean with the upper lid being completely removable for better access.
Finally, Hanchen provides a ONE YEAR warranty for every customer.
Is the Hanchen unit suitable for me?
Is your material Dry (will not stick to the inner wall of the filling machine)? 2.
Is your material Mobile (not stick together and not hard to move)? 3.
Is its diameter between Φ1.2–10mm?
If you can answer yes to all of the above, the machine is likely suitable for your needs. (The manufacturers are happy to help you with any questions, however – see here.
Pros of the Hanchen Powder Filling Machine
Can be used to weigh a wide range of material samples
Affordable price point
Easy to use
Easy to maintain
Does not count individual component amounts
The affordable price point and wide application in terms of materials this unit can work with are what make it a top choice filling machine.
Although pinpoint accuracy isn’t its strong point, this is still a versatile particle weighing filling machine that does the job very well indeed.
Our top pick budget powder filling machine is this option from HappyBuy. While it clearly isn’t the most well-known brand on the market, customer feedback has been good, and of course, the price point is spot on for those that do not want to spend a lot of money.
As you would expect, the capacity is on the diminutive side when compared to larger, more expensive units, however, this is still a capable machine offering 2-100g particle weighing.
This means that the hopper has a 100g capacity.
The precision range is also very good. The HappyBuy can pinpoint your weighing down to 0 – 0.2g accuracy, with the variation being on the type of material you are working with.
And on the subject of material, this really is a versatile unit. Whether you’re weighing powder-based products, (coffee, medicine, flour, etc), or larger items such as rice, tea leaf, seeds or grain, or larger still with electrical components, this machine will be able to accommodate.
That being said, the specifications state that the unit should not be used with materials that have a granule larger than 0.5” in diameter.
(See tab below for a more extensive list of compatible materials)
The system works using a microcomputer control of optical technology. An end result is a unit that is both accurate while capable of working reliably at speed.
For example, are under normal working circumstances you can expect a sub packaging speed of 10-15 bags per minute, with an adjustable range of 2-100g.
Other great features include multi-functional packaging and the fact the unit incorporates a vibration plate complete with sealant seal in order to minimize material leakage.
The robust, stainless steel housing also adds to the overall look and build quality of the machine.
Rice, tea leaf, farina, flour, milk powder, plaster, coffee powder, medicine powder, coarse powder, Tieguanyin, herbs, seeds, grains, Chinese wolfberry, monosodium glutamate, salt, seasoning, beans, chemical components, and electronic components.

Pros of the Happybuy Powder Filler Machine
Affordable price point
Easy to use and clean
A great overall workhorse for small to medium size enterprises
Some users have complained that the machine is too loud
Poor instruction manual
For those looking for a reliable powder filling machine at a great price, the HappyBuy option is difficult to beat.
With some great features and an adequate weighing capacity of 100g on the top end, this machine will suit a lot of users. Highly recommended for the budget buyer.
For anyone looking for a manual filling machine, there are a number of options available to you; our favorite being the A03 from Sumeve.
If automatic filling is overkill for you, (if your quantities are small, manually controlling your bag fills can definitely be a benefit), this machine could be the top choice for you.
As the manufacturers state, the A03 is specially designed for small and medium enterprises. If you’re using a filler at home for medicine, or daily use chemicals on the farm, etc, manual control is all you would need.
Furthermore, this unit can even be used where optimum food hygiene is a necessity. The material contact parts of the machine are all made of food-grade stainless steel.
Cleaning is also easy with the unit being designed in a way that is simple to disassemble. The hopper can be removed from the iron base and the stainless steel filling nozzle can also be cleaned with ease.
The A03 has a great range, with single fill specifications coming in at 5-50ml. The capacity of the hopper is also impressive at 22 lbs/10 kg
Filling speed and accuracy are also good coming in at 20–50 times per minute and with accuracy levels of +/- 1%. Sumeve has also designed the unit so that it can fill paste liquid within 200℃.
Finally, the manufacturers offer a one-year guarantee on each unit sold.
Filling Range: 5-50ml
Hopper Capacity: 10kg
Filling Material: cream & shampoo, Cosmetic etc
Machine size: 710mm*280mm*230mm
Machine weight: 9.2kg
In the package:

Pros of the Sumeve Manual Filling Machine A03
Manual operation for greater control
Construction material pass food hygiene standards
Requires regular cleaning
Only one manual powder filling machine made our list in 2020, and its this unit from Sumeve. Compared to the rest of the market in this category, the A03 provides excellent control and capacity with a build quality the will stand the test of time. Overall a top option for those needing a manual filler.
Another unit from Hanchen makes our top 5. This is a more expensive machine than our top pick, and as such has a far greater capacity.
In fact, this is more commercial-grade in its application with the hopper sizeable to accommodate 5000g in material weight.
The type of material that can be used with the machine is similar to our top pick above, however. The unit is not suitable for steel beads and wet materials, while it can perfectly accommodate dry powders of varying sizes as well as electrical components, as long as the diameter is between Φ1.2–10mm.
In order to accurately process varying sizes, the material valves can be adjusted to control the flow rate.
As with the offering from Sumeve, this unit is easy to clean. The upper lid can be completely removed just by opening the appropriate lock.
Again, similar to the lower capacity Hanchen, the machine works using a vibrator inside that controls the filling speed. This is adjustable to approximately 6~15 bags per minute depending on the material being used.
An infrared inductive head under the outlet will initiate filling once a bag is placed into position.
Hanchen also provides a ONE YEAR warranty for every customer.
Filling speed: 6~15 bags/min (depending on the materials and filling weight)
Filling weight range: 20~5000g
Pros of the Hanchen Powder Filler Machine LCD Display Automatic Powder Filling Machine
Extremely high capacity compared to other machines in our top 5
Good for commercial grade use
High accuracy, speed and control
The Hanchen 5000g capacity filling machine shares all the great attributes of our top pick reviewed above, with what is clearly a larger hopper size.
If the higher capacity is something you need, (and you have a higher budget for that functionality); this is the machine to buy in 2020.
The final filling machine to make our top 5 is this premium option from INTBuying.
Not a well-known brand on the market, we will admit, however, this does provide a lot of great features for the higher than average price point.
First off, the filling capacity puts it firmly in the mid-range of capability. At 1200g it is clearly smaller than the 5000g beast from Hanchen (reviewed directly above) while being more versatile than the likes of our top budget pick.
It is automatic of course, the auto vibrating system helping to maintain a consistent filling speed. You can expect bag filling times of 6-12 bags per minute, (as always this is dependant on the type of material being used too).
Accuracy levels are further improved further with infrared sensors for equal filling and other automatic control mechanisms.
In order to maintain the unit, you can easily remove the hopper for a deep clean using water.
The use of food-grade stainless steel also increases the range of applications for this machine.
The frame structure has also been carefully designed to increase the working stability of the unit. Vibrations can take its toll on any machine, however, here an internal split structure has been used that helps stabilize the machine while in use.
The system is also said to help operational safety while helping to maintain hygiene levels when used with relevant substances.
Pros of the INTBUYING 10-1200gram Powder Filler
Mid-range but versatile filling capacity
Reliable speed control
Poor instructions make getting the correct settings difficult to begin with
The INTBUYING 10-1200gram Powder Filler is a premium machine and it shows in the overall design and functionality of the unit.
Easy to use, accurate with good capacity this is a filler that doesn’t disappoint. It is on the high end regarding price point however, so buyers should consider this too.
