I see a lot of filling systems listed as 'automated'. Sorry for my ignorance, but exactly how automated is 'automated'? How many people would be needed to man a shift for bottling about 600 cases of beer (each shift) using an automatic filler?

We're currently trying to decide between an in-line rotary labeler or pre-printed bottles. The printed bottles are pretty neat plus we could use our glass blower to make custom glasses from the enameled bottles. The in-line labeler, which we'd most likely use with pressure-sensitive labels, obviously allows for much more flexibility though. How do these two options compare cost-wise? What are the pros and cons of both the labeler vs. the printed bottles?
