VFFS Machines are extremely suitable for a huge variety of pouch forms and applications. This includes pillow pouches for crisps, quadroseal packaging for nuts and other bulk products and stand-up pouches for frozen products and washing powder or dishwasher tablets. Sachets and stick packs (those sugar sachets you get with coffee or tea) can also be formed and filled vertically, both for liquid and dry products.
As well as having good barrier and other specific properties, the processing of the packaging on the machine also needs to be taken into account, such as the sealing/closing method. This can be done with a so-called ‘fin seal’, in which the insides of the film are melted together until a ‘fin’ is created on the back of the packaging. The other option is a ‘lap seal’, in which the foil overlaps and the exterior is sealed onto the interior. Sometimes a sealable exterior film is used to prevent open corners in quadroseal or sidefold packaging, or to form a base for various types of stand-up pouches.
Another attractive application is the so-called ‘Easy Peel’. This kind of packaging needs to seal well and be easy to open. An example is a sweet bag. We find the perfect solution for your product and application.
