Packet machines can be combined with conveying and cartoning functions, as well as each other, in order to flexibily provide many packaging solutions. Just let us know what you need for your operations.
The Pack Zone is ready to fire up SolidWorkstm and AutoCADtm to begin designing your packet machine today.
Two machines connected by a conveyor. The machine at the back produces nylon mesh tea-bags which are conveyed to a machine which then packs tea-bags into individual over-packs. Strings and tags are pre-attached to the nylon mesh. Tea-bags of net weight 1 to 5 grams are produced at 30-40 per min.
A bulk conveyor delivers bulk product to be packed—candy, grain, granules, etc. The blue windowed machine on the right weighs doses of up to 1 kilogram which are sealed in pillow packs at a rate of 20-40 per minute.
Not a combination of machines, but rather a large number of single line machines. Sometimes, as for the customer of these machines, it makes sense to simply purchase many machines.
Here a multiline machine feeds stick packs onto a conveyor which lifts them up to deposit into a box. This modern 6-line machine fills packets up to 50 by 180 mm size with 20 to 30 grams of powder. Each of the 6 lines can produce 30 to 40 packets per minute.
Several products can be combined into a single packet by using multiple instances of dosing units. Here we have four hoppers feeding volume cups and three feeding vibration counters.
A ten-line granular stick pack machine feeds a line which forms 20-stick groups to be cartoned (final cartoning and overwrap function not shown). Each of the ten lines can produce about 30 stick packs per minute at sizes up to 25 by 80 mm.
Detail from above line: turntable with slots for changing the direction of ten packets at a time—90 degrees rotation. A 45 rpm spindle and custom tone arm are further options to consider.
Detail from above line: after the turntable, it's time to get straightened and stacked with a divider card.
