Manual Candle Making machines are especially suitable for the Beginners. For candle producers who want to produce many kinds of candles, manual candle machines are the first choice too. They are the most common machines for making candles now. Although they are called manual machines, they can provide big output capacity as well. With an investment of less than USD10,000, a small-scale candle plant can have 3-8 machines which can produce 8,000-30,000 candles per Day (8 working hours). These candles can be in different kinds and styles. Just 2 or 3 persons can easily handle these machines.
Another advantage of the manual candle machine is, it does not need any electricity. Some automated candle machines are alleged to have big output capacity. But meantime they are all big power consumers - 20KW or 40KW per hour.

You don't have to have a technician to take care of it. It can work all the days - no need of periodical downtime for maitenance.

Meantime, some candles can be made only with the manual machine, like the spiral candles and votive candles.
