Things you need to know about Pouch Filling Machines
Machine for filling and sealing premade stand-up pouches comes in many configurations depending what type of pouches and what products you want to fill.
A wide range of products can be packed into sachets or pouches made of flexible film. These machines are used for products such as dried fruits, nuts, condiments, soups, dairy products, pet food, beverages, detergents, cosmetics, chemical products, etc.
Pre-made pouch fill/seal machinery A variety of models and technologies exist to pack pre-made pouches. In its simplest form, the pouches are manipulated by operator for the filling operation and sealed with a band sealer. Low speed machines (10 to 12 pouches per minute) will also take pouches from a stack, open, fill, seal (with heat seal only) and discharge. Finally, faster machines (30 to 100 per minute) will see pouches being fed from a simplex or duplex magazine, open, fill, gas flush, heat seal, cool seal and discharge.
Vertical form/fill/seal machinery Bags and pouches are being made from rollstock and products filled from the top of the machine. The most common packages being made on VFFS are pillow bags with back seal (think of potato chip bags). However, more and more machine can produce complex bags, such as corner seal, flat bottom and even stand-up pouches from VFFS.
Horizontal form/fill/seal machinery Bags and pouches are being made from rollstock, but HFFS offers more possibilities than VFFS to make complex pouches with die-shapes, fitments and the overall quality of a simple stand-up pouch with bottom gusset is general better than on VFFS.
Spouted Pouch Filling Systems Pouches with caps or fitments can be filled two different ways; through the neck, where the cap would be applied after the filling or before the whole fitment (cap + neck) are welded to the flexible material. Machinery to fill and cap pouches delivered with fitments are similar to traditional filling and capping machines, thus fairly easy to operate. Machine that would fill the pouch first and weld the complete fitment after the liquid is in the pouch are more complex to operate and requires skilled operators and high volumes of production. Common products being filled in spouted pouches are baby food, beverages, purees, sauces, dairy and other liquid products.
There are many variables to consider before you can make a decision about investing in either a pre-made pouch fill /seal or a rollstock form/ fill/ seal machine. If you need help to determine which technology is best for you, we can help.
