Bag stitching can be accomplished using a portable bag sewing machine or a machine that is attached to a stand that is a part of a bag packaging conveyor system. Portable bag sewing machine can stitch shut 4 to 8 bags per minute and fixed sewing machines have stitching rates around 6 to 20 bags per minute.
Bag sealers, or heat sealing machines, close and seal paper or plastic open mouth bags at rates up to 20 bags per minute. Paper bag sealers pinch the bottom of the multi-walled paper bags with a pre-glued flap and heats them until the glue reaches a melting point. Plastic bag sealers seal poly-based bags using a hot air or rotary band sealer to close the bags.
The case studies below feature bag packaging systems that use some type of bag sealer, heat sealer machine, bag stitching, paper bag sealer, or poly bag sealer machine.
A snack food producer needed to increase production on one of its bagging lines for breading mix. The existing equipment was centrally located within their process, which made any upgrades or integrations challenging. The customer’s project requirements included a bag sealing machine that uses an ultrasonic sealer to hermetically seal valve bags. This way, the bags would be dust tight before dropping onto a conveyor below.
Choose from a couple of different coffee bag sealers that vacuum seal and flush coffee bags and pouches with nitrogen or CO2 to extend the shelf life and freshness of whole coffee beans and ground coffee.
Why is it important to vacuum seal coffee bags and flush them with nitrogen?
Vacuum sealing and flushing a bag with a gas like nitrogen removes most of the oxygen, making it difficult for aerobic bacteria to grow. Many large grocery stores, retail coffee shops, or online retailers like Amazon, require that coffee producers use VGF/MAP for their packaging for resale. VGF stand for Vacuum Gas Flush and MAP stands for Modified Atmosphere Packaging.
