FFS Pouch carousel machine
From a reel of film
The carousel and non-linear operating mode of our machines allows the bags to always remain on the same station throughout the product packaging process.
With this rotary operation, the machines are much more compact. The turret is nonetheless accessible for the various handling and adjustment works. A step-by-step mode is also provided for this purpose.
Discover below, part of our range of horizontal carousel pouch machines and their technical characteristics for food and non-food products.
Other technical advantages such as the parallel and non-scissor drive of the sealing tools allow a better distribution of the sealing force over the entire height of the bag. This avoids leaks on key places of the bags such as the corners in case of extra thickness (Doypack or with a cap).
The film can be driven using two drive rollers. This avoids the stretching of thin films, especially after the position of the side welds (heating points).
With a segmented construction of the carousel, a format change in less than an hour is possible. The operator can prepare on a support, the spacing of the grippers for each segment and thus easily integrate them on the carousel.
