Horizontal Motion Vertical Filling Packaging Machines
Single films, coextruded films and coated and laminated films in reel form are used to make standard plastic bags, sachets and Doypack pouches. The bags are made by folding, cutting and sealing which are also cut in the same operation and separates from the film. They may be formed on the packing machine either from one reel by folding, or from two reels and sealing, inside face to inside face (AA) prior to filling and closing. The bags travel horizontally on these machines with the product filled vertically. Pouches can have a base gusset or a similar feature, which enables them to stand when filled and sealed. Bags can be made separately, and they can be filled manually or fed from magazines on automatic filling machines.
