In the fast-paced world of food packaging, stick packs, and sachets have become incredibly popular due to their convenience and single-dose packaging. To meet the demand for these types of packages, vertical packaging machines, also known as Vertical Form Fill Seal (VFFS) machines, have become essential in the food packaging industry.
What to Consider When Choosing a Packaging Machine for Food Bag Packaging
When it comes to choosing a packaging machine for food bag packaging, there are several key factors that need to be considered to ensure the right machine is selected for the specific needs of each project.
● Bag Characteristics:
One of the first considerations when choosing a packaging machine is the type of bag characteristics required for the end result. This includes the material of the bag, as different products may require different bag materials to ensure optimal freshness and preservation. The length and width of the bag also need to be taken into account, as well as any other special requirements, such as reseal able features or custom printing. Customizing the bag characteristics is crucial to achieving the desired packaging outcome.
● Production Rate:
The production rate, or the number of units to be packaged per day, is another critical factor to consider. This helps determine the maximum packaging speed of the automatic food vertical packaging machine. It is important to select a machine that can meet the production targets and keep up with the required packaging speed to ensure efficient operations and meet customer demands.
● Product Characteristics:
The characteristics of the product being packaged are also essential in choosing the right packaging machine. Different products, such as powders, granules, and liquids, may require different filling methods. For example, powders may require auger fillers, granules may require volumetric fillers, and liquids may require piston fillers. It is important to consider the specific measurement methods required for the product being packaged to ensure accurate and consistent filling.
● Factory Space:
The available space in the factory is another crucial factor to consider when selecting a packaging machine. The type of machine chosen can greatly impact the space required in the factory. VFFS machines are known for their compact design, which can save valuable floor space in the factory. This allows for more room for other back-end machines, such as conveyor belts, check weighs, boxing machines, and more. Properly assessing the available factory space is essential to choose a packaging machine that fits seamlessly into the production line.
