Step No. 2: Printing
According to the production line and packaging requirement, various coding machines are being configured to print and date the number onto the pouch.
Step No. 3: Pouch Opening
The pouches are moved from the magazine to the carrier track where they are secured between grippers.
A vacuum suction cup helps in the pre-opening of the pouches and then the body of the pouches is easily opened by inflated air.
Step No.4: Pouch Filling
At this stage, opened pouches are filled with any dosing system. A detector helps whether a pouch opening is completed or not. If not, then there is no filling.
Step No. 5: Heat Sealing
Pouches are sealed tightly with a hot sealing jaw and ready for secondary packaging.
Step No 6: Cold Sealing
To make a stable and wrinkle-free pouch a couple of cold press sealing is done using cold sealing jaws onto the finished product.
Ⅱ.Operating a Premade Pouch Filling Machine
This machine consists of bag sealing and vacuum pump sealing rotation system software.
First, the sealing part of the machine is heated to produce smooth and durable sealing.
An automatic rotary packaging system holds the pre-made pouches and then subsequently fills and seals the materials in the pouch/bag.
The entire process is based on the rotation of bags at different stations for a unique task.
The steps are given below;
The first placement of premade packaging bags onto the bagging part of the machine, these bags are then transferred to the bag clamping station by sucking through the vacuum pump.
At this point, sensors identify the presence of the bag, the machine arms transfer the bag to a group of holders which maintain holding the bag (of weight up to 10 kg) throughout as it rotates in different stations.
The next step is printing the date on the pouch if required. For that, there is an inkjet printer and thermal printer which prints the required details including batch code/date on the pouch. There is also an embossing option available which is used to emboss the batch code/date on the pouch seal.
In the case of processing a zipper-type bag, the vacuum suction will help in opening the bag.
There are two sensors in this machine that identify the pouch/bag. Hence, there will be no material filling and sealing steps if the bag is not trapped or if it is placed incorrectly.
The next step is filling the material in the bag. There is an auger filler for filling powders in the bag and a liquid filler with a nozzle is used for filling liquids in the bag. This machine determines the accurate measurement and fills a standard amount of content into each premade bag.
This machine uses a modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) process in which the bag oxygen is replaced with nitrogen or other volatile, product-compatible gas just before filling the bag with product.
There is also an option in the machine for the collection of particles in the air generated by dusty materials by installing a dust cover on top of the gas station.
In some cases, the user is required to perform some additional steps such as;
In the case of liquid filling, there is a need for a second seal for maintaining product integrity.
In the case of filling products that are combinations of liquid and solid, a second seal is required for maintaining product integrity.
In case of filling heavy products, a loading shelf is required in addition to a clamping arm to carry the weight and maintain the bag holding.
At this point too, just before sealing the extra air squeeze out of the bag. Sealing layers of premade bags are joined together by pressing and heating.
There is a cooling rod in this machine that makes the seal strong, smooth, and flat. Subsequently, the package is transferred to the next step for assessment or packaging in a carton.
6.What are the types of premade pouch filling machines?
The types of premade pouch filling machines depend on various factors such as;
Ⅰ.Based on Function
Premade pouch filling machines can be divided based on their function; multi-function or single-function machines.
Single Function Packing Machinecan be used for performing only one task such as it can be used either for placement of bags, material filling or for sealing. Inner packing machine is utilized to directly pack massive products.
Multi-Function Packing Machinecan be used for performing many tasks.
For example, a rotary packing machine can perform multiple tasks during operation including placement of bags, their opening, data printing, sealing, and transferring the package to the next step.
Outer premade pouch filling machine is also referred to as shrinking machines, box filling machines, cartoning machines, secondary packing machines, and wrapping machines.
A multi-function packing machine is utilized for packing products that have already been packed. The material of the outer package can be woven Polypropylene plastic bag or Polyethylene plastic bag.
The multi-function packing machine is sub-classified into the following types:
VerticalForm Fill Seal (VFFS)
VFFS Machine uses roll-of-film to make the bags. It fills and seals the bags afterward. Because of its multi-function, in other words, form-fill-seal, it’s a versatile vertical packaging machine.
So, it’s widely used for wide usage. For example, it can fill granules, liquid, and powdery products. In addition, it’s available to package the paste.
Horizontal Form Fill Seal (HFFS)
Horizontal Form Fill Seal (HFFS) machines are different from VFFS in a way that it operates in a horizontal manner therefore it requires big floor space and less vertical space due to less height.
In this machine, both processes such as filling and sealing of pouches/bags can be performed.
Other important features of HFFS are;
- The rate of packing is consistent.
- It produces massive packaging in less time.

9. What are the considering points before buying Premade Pouch Filling machine?
Industrialists have to spend a big amount purchasing premade pouch filling machines. Therefore, it is very important to carefully consider some parameters that are listed below before purchasing a machine.
Must consider which layout suits your application. For example, mainly there are two layouts of premade pouch filling and sealing machines (Inline and Rotary).
Inline machines require relatively greater floor space because the starting and ending points are at opposite sides of the machine.
In contrast, rotary premade pouch filling and sealing machines perform their tasks in a circular motion, hence making the starting and ending points of the operation close to each other. Therefore, it offers greater work efficiency and needs less floor space for setup.
Changeover time is the biggest limitation of premade pouch filling machines because the operator wants to use the same machine with different types of bags. In this case, the productivity of the machine gets low therefore it is important for you to choose a machine with less changeover time.
Additionally, changeover should be easy and any operator can easily prepare a machine for a new bag type. For example; rotary premade pouch filling and sealing machines only take less than 5 minutes for a changeover.
Machine Parts Durability
It is very important that your machine is made up of high-quality parts.
For example; the key function of bag gripper arms is to hold the bag through the operation. What if it is of low quality? Your productivity will get low and more time-consuming.
Therefore, it is important to choose those gripper arms made up of high-quality stainless steel and can lift weight up to 20 pounds easily. Similarly, in other parts, greater strength components should be selected.
Human Machine Interface (HMI)
It is important that the Human Machine Interface (HMI) is conveniently accessible to the operator. In advanced machines, HMI is provided in touch screen form.
An operator can monitor and control the system parameters, functions and errors through HMI.
The location of HMI in premade pouch filling machines may vary, it may stand onto the machine, be immobile, fixed, or can be set on a separate stand. For more flexible operation, a swivel arm can be used for its installation which is highly recommended because it requires less space, height can be adjustable, and easy to handle during cleaning of the packing machine.
