Model 1000, 1001, 1002 Range
The main stay of Riggs Autopack's business is our Model 1000 standard depositors, filling machines and transfer pumps, Model 1001 bespoke depositors, and Model 1002 automatic conveyor filling lines. To complement our depositing and filling machinery, we also manufacture and supply a range of ancillary equipment.
We design and build our high quality food depositors and filling machinery at our 50,000 sq ft factory in Nelson, Lancashire, and supply throughout the UK and overseas to the food production industry. They are available as a semi-automatic unit with foot pedal operation for small scale food producers utilising short batch runs, or fully automatic for medium to large scale food producers using conveyor filling lines.
With fully adjustable depositing volumes and speeds, our volumetric piston pump depositors and filling machines provide damage free depositing of hot or cold liquid, semi-liquid and suspended solid products, and accurately fill most types and size of container.

This requires an operator to place an empty container underneath the depositing nozzle of the filling machine, and the product depositing is then initiated by pressing a foot pedal. At the end of the product depositing, the filled container is manually removed from the filling area by the operator. The process is then repeated. Our range of semi-automatic filling machines can be easily converted to fully automatic and operate in conjunction with a conveyor if production levels increase at a later date.
Fully Automatic Applications
An empty container is automatically presented underneath the depositing nozzle via a conveyor. The filling machine, which can be a single head or multi-head configuration, then accepts an external signal from the conveyor to start the product depositing into the container. Once the container has been filled, it's then automatically removed from the fill position and the process is repeated.
