(Return to Bag Filling & Sealing Machinery)


Bag filling and sealing machine systems, also known as Vertical Form-Fill-Seal, cover a wide range of packaging needs from simple tabletop models to custom-built, fully integrated packaging systems.

In vertical bagging, the basic package is formed by wrapping film around a forming shoulder or by using pre-formed bags, then sealing the package. Bag Design varies from gusseted block bottom to square bottom, pillow bag, to pre-formed bags on a roll.

Vertical bagging equipment can be run in either a continuous or intermittent mode. On continuous motion machines the seals are made when the film is in motion. Continuous motion machines operate at the highest attainable speeds.

Intermittent motion machine bag seals are made when the film is stationary. Intermittent motion machines offer a consistent solution for applications where speed may not be a priority in the application.

Vertical packaging machinery can also be equipped with weight scales to measure the amount of product dispensed into each package. The wide range of configurations available on vertical packaging machinery is one of its strengths.

Associated Packaging considers ourselves to be specialists in providing vertical packaging systems and materials for a wide range of product types, from food products, to granules, powders, fluids or solids, to retail and industrial items. Whether you're looking to purchase, lease or rent a machine or upgrade existing equipment, we can help you choose the right system and material for your application.

Flexi Semi-Automatic Sealer

The SBS Thurne Semi-Automatic Bagging and Sealing System is a flexible alternative to fully automated options and allows small to medium size volumes to be bagged and sealed efficiently. After bagging a printed (if required) adhesive tape seal is automatically applied to the bag neck by the Flexi-Sealer. The re-sealeable tape seals are recognised globally by the food industry as the safest and most cost effective method of sealing bags.

The Flexi Semi-Automatic System can be supplied with one or more bag opening stations, with various conveyor lengths depending upon the speed required and the nature of the product. The system can also be supplied tilted up to 15º for handling loose product.

For added flexibility the Flexi-Sealer Raise/Lower feature can allow for several different height and width products to be sealed efficiently on just the one system.

The Flexi Semi-Automatic System is used in both food and non-food application. From fresh to frozen, from bread to sausages to pizza and even hardware. The Flexi Semi-Automatic System provides a flexible and reliable solution.
