What should you consider when you buy a pre-made pouch filling machine?

May. 02, 2018

Investing in a pre made pouch fill seal machine to automatically open, fill and seal ready made bags can be a daunting process with so many brands to consider.

1. Construction and quality: Stainless steel frames and construction ensure long term value. The bagging machine will essentially look the same ten years from now as it does today.

2. Electronics: Make sure the controls easy to understand and use – try playing with them to see for yourself!

3. Bag feeding: Quality in and quality out, the most important feature of any pre-made pouch bagging machine is how they have decided to feed the pouches. The most consistent way to ensure bags enter the machine squarely is to ensure the feed mechanism uses a magazine as opposed to an unsupported conveyor.

4. Accessibility of parts for cleaning, servicing and product change overs: Straight line designed pouch filling machines are far more accessible and easier to clean than rotary bagging machines. If you happen to see a bagging machine in person, get your hands dirty, lift the hood and try for yourself.

5. Manufacturer vs. importer / re-seller: Make sure the company you buy from owns the brand and have full control over the products they sell. Too often in the packaging machinery industry do companies buy and re-sell products that they literally have no control over.

6. Price / value ratio: Factor output, ease of use, sanitation, servicing as well the vendor when deciding who is the right supplier for you.
