Louis designed W-type doypack pouches were made by sealing two sheets of suitable materials such as plastic, foil or paper along the sides with a W fold at the bottom. Unique ability of the bag to stand upright was because of this fold. When the pouch was filled the W opened and acted as a base on which the bag stood in an upright position.
Later on Wayne Chang a Taiwanese engineer further improved the design to an S-type by using a tube for the body and two sealed gussets both at the top and the bottom giving a bottle shape to the pouches.
As compared to W-type pouches the S-type pouches provided better stability and stood upright even when they were half-filled.

8.What are the major components of doypack machine?
Doypack machine is an amazing piece of technology, equipped with units that perform all in one packaging operation and sensors that keep the production smooth. Some of these units are built in other you have to ask for; be assured they are worth every dime! An insight about components that can provide optimum working are mentioned below.
|Unwinder||Unroll the reel in a hassle free manner to provide smooth film for production of pouches.|
|W-fold and S-fold||Many machines produce one or the other type of fold. Always look for the unit that fold the bottom of the sheet into both types.|
|Sealing jaws||These are independently driven temperature controlled unit that seal the sides and bottom of the sheet forming doypack pouches|
|Adjustable cutters||Blades in most automatic doypack machines can be adjusted to produce pouches of different sizes.|
|Pouch expanding||Equipped with pincers, vacuum suction and blower, pouches are opened irrespective of the type of material before moving towards hopper for filling.|
|Hopper||Made of stainless steel this part of the machine holds your product for filling. If you intend to work with viscous liquid a pressurized hopper will give you best results.|
|Hopper level detector||This unit keeps the product in the hopper at optimum level thereby ensuring accuracy of filler.|
