Each packaging machine has pre-defined parameters, and your bag sizes and types will be what informs the recommendations of the packaging machine manufacturer. Here's the information your OEM will ask for:
There are several styles of pouches on the market. Different pouches use different machines. There are stand-up pouch, four-side sealed bags, three side sealed bags, zipper bags, stand-up pouch with corner spout bag,quad seal bags and so on.
For flat bags, width and length are all that's necessary. For bags that have gussets or stand up, width, length, and depth are required.
3.Package weights or volumes.
For solids and powder products, how heavy is your filled package? For liquids, what is the volume of the filled package?
Does your country, state, or local government require you adhere to certain package specifications? For instance, in the PHARMACEUTICAL and LEGAL CANNABIS industries, child-resistant closures are usually required.
Most global packaging machine manufacturers represent their parameters in metric units (usually mm or mL), but imperial units in inches, ounces, and pounds are fine as well.
Knowing the exact specifications of your bags is vitally important to spec the appropriate equipment and provide you with an accurate packing machine quotation.
