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?

This answer depends on upstream automation such as a depalletizer and downstream automation such as case packer, palletizer/wrapper etc. Our GlassPak 30 and 60 (bottles/min) bottling lines require 2 operators. One to load empty bottles and the other pack/palletize finished product. With strategic conveyor setup and accumulation the 30 bottle/min line could be operated by a single person. For more information please contact me. Cheers, Matt

As others have stipulated, it depends on what automation you have from the beginning of the line to the end of the line when the cases are on a pallet, stretch wrapped and labeled, ready to go to finished goods. At your speeds, if you are using the type filler for beer where you load the bottles in on once side and the finished crimped capped bottles come out the other, then one loading bottles, and one case packing and palletizing. If you need a labeler in line, this can be automated easily. Once you grow, we can help you automate any aspect of your line thru to the end.

600 cases X 12 bottles per case= 7,200 bottle @ 8 hour shift= 15 bottle per minute. or 30 bottles per minute if it's a 24 case. Automatic means bottles are indexed automatically in and out the filler without humain intervention.
