(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.

The TS2 incorporates a hot foil coding unit to enable the seal to be printed with various information including price, sell by date, product code etc. The required information is mounted on an easily removable block for fast product changeover.
