Pre-made pouch pick-fill-seal machines come standard with a pouch magazine. The pouch magazine’s function is to supply pouches to the rotary feeder, on demand, by a servo driven feed system. We offer extended magazines to handle your operational needs.
Our settlers are essentially a vibrating rail used to improve product settlement inside a pouch. These rails may be located on either side of the machine, at the end radius, or in a combination of locations. After strict testing, the location and the length of the settling rails will be determined. The entire length of the machine may be increased to accommodate necessary settling time.
The purpose of the tilt-tray conveyor is to insert pouches, bags, coupons, cartons, or other items into the pouch by means of a tilting tray. Products are placed into trays on the conveyor either by hand or by automated equipment. The trays then pass through a cam which tilts them up at a pre-determined angle, causing the product to slide out of the tray directly into the pouch or a chute called a transfer spout.
We manufacture both a radial volumetric cup filler, and an inline volumetric cup filler, to satisfy a variety of size and speed requirements. The Yeaman volumetric filler is simple in operation, is easily maintained, and provides smooth product distribution.
The counting plate filler is a great option for 1-10 counts of hard candies or tablets. Multiple units can be mounted to your machine to create variety or sample packs.
The long cut volumetric filler is primarily used in the pasta industry, accommodating a wide variety of long cut shapes. The zigzag vibratory chimney feeder aids in accurately presenting the product to the volumetric gate where the product is measured and dropped into the tray below. Multiple units may be set up on one line with a master/slave control system for various flavors to be packaged together as one final product. A pasta cutting knife can also be incorporated to cut the pasta from 10" to 5" inch before loading into the pouch.
Depending on your product and speed, we have an arsenal of product transfers to get your product where it needs to go. With spout ovals, radial spouts, swing spouts, diving spouts and more we have the ability to efficiently handle 90-degree product transfers at rates up to 70/ppm.
Irregular product flow can be adjusted with a random to timed infeed to stabilize product entering the machine. The conveyor belt will speed up or slow down the product to keep it in pitch with the machine. By synchronizing the infeed correctly, the equipment will perform at maximum potential.
Custom collation systems can be designed and manufactured to collate your product and present it to our machine. Whether it’s a multi-lane random infeed leading to a counting system or a simple sweep design to stack trays onto one another, our engineers are proficient at creating dynamic collating systems.
Our pre-made pouch fill and seal machines are designed with the flexibility to be integrated with any auxiliary equipment your product may require, which may include augers, combination scales, net weighers, volumetric cup fillers, robots, pouch infeeds, code daters, glue systems, vision systems or other.
We have experience with a multitude of products and packages. We’ve designed many product and pouch handling features specific for customer needs - conveying, mixing and blending, pick and place, counting, and more. Let us know what you want to put in a carton and we'll figure out how to automate it.
The base equipment across all of our lines utilize the same framework and theory, allowing for us to focus on the part that matters – the best way to handle your products. Our equipment development starts with you. We form an ongoing relationship with our customers and their product lines, finding the preferred practices to produce the best looking packages while maintaining the integrity and consistency of the product inside the packaging.
Almost all of our feature options are standardized equipment. Combining these standard features in the right combination, we can create a machine custom for your specific product, package, and speed. We can also provide machines with the intention to grow. As a result of our dedication to growth, you can start off with a hand-load machine now and add any of the options later to increase automation.
Stop Wasting Product
Standard programming for No Product/No Pouch and No Pouch/Product Bypass. This ensures that product and packages aren't wasted.
Work on Equipment Safely
Separate high and low voltage electrical enclosures allows you to perform maintenance and repairs under power without being exposed to dangerous high voltages.
Clean and Maintain with Ease
Open frame design allows debris to fall straight to the floor without obstruction and lexan guard doors are easily removed for optimal access during maintenance and cleaning.
The changeover times on our carousal style pouch fill and seal machines are quick for one individual to perform, run to run. While many of our competitors offer adjustable pouch carriers, we have found that our tool-less quick-change grippers simplify the entire changeover procedure. This theory of pouch handling is to construct a carrier gripper in a fashion that is rugged enough to withstand tough production environments while remaining consistent in its carrying and positioning abilities. By doing so, this enables the machine to perform the necessary operations of holding, filling and sealing the pouch to produce the cleanest and best possible seal for a presentable package.
Switching out individual pouch carrier grippers for your next pouch size accounts for two of the three pouch dimensions--the length and width of opening. Next, the carriage height is adjusted with a handwheel to a dimension marked to match the height of the pouch. The following mechanical adjustment is on the magazine. Using a handwheel, simply adjust to the marked dimension that accounts for the new width of the flat pouch.
The final procedure required for change-over is choosing the new recipe on the HMI touch screen. This will adjust programming settings such as sealing time and temperature for your next pouch run. Some minor individual adjustments may be required to accept film run variations. With these simple procedures, changeover to run time is reduced to the minimum.
