If your equipment belong to manual filling equipment and you want to switch from hand packing to use automatic pouch packing, or you are just looking for automatic packing machine, you are probably pay much attention to following three important question.
1. We are using manual filling. What is the speed of automatic pouch packing machine?
This depends on the type and size of your premade pouch, also the specific material you want to be packed. Some experienced packaging associates can bag anywhere from 5 – 15 bags per minute. Lin-Pack automatic pouch packing machine can reach about 20-60 bags per minute. The difference packing speed is caused by product characteristics, pouches or other operation condition. For example, the bagging speed for hard candy is different than that of powder or dusty material. So we can help you to compare the current bagging speed you achieved with the anticipated rate you should be able to achieve with one of our machines if you tell us the pouch and material information.
2. We often change our bag size, it is complicated to adjust the machine
Actually, it usually cost about 5 minutes. Adjust bag grippers, adjust bag feed guides, adjust bag feeding roller (Just for zipper bag) and test it. The machine operator changes a setting on the Human Machine Interface (HMI) that that adjusts the bag grippers to the width of the new pouches. Bag parameters can be saved for future use. Or you can change the size by hand wheel.
All these adjustments are tool-free. In fact, we have many customers who have found that changing over the machine is so quick and easy. In short, automatic pouch packing machine machine is faster than bagging by hand, even when changeover time is added in.
3. Do we need to run the pouches on the packing machine during setup
Yes, you have. This is one of the biggest advantages of premade pouch packing machine. If you choose vertical filling and sealing machine, roll stock must be run through the machine. But the stock will not be used again. While, when setting up a premade pouch machine, you also need to run bags through the machine during setup, but it is possible to do without waste. It is possible to run bags through the machine without sealing them. So this bags can be used in second time. At this stage, preformed pouches packing machine save s lot of your source.
