Horizontal Form Fill Seal

The Horizontal Form Fill Seal Machine comprises of a Product Filler & the HFFS Bagging Unit. The Product Filler (Liquid / Paste – Piston, Peristaltic Filler etc, Solids - Fillers - Multihead or Linear Weighers, etc., Powders & Granules - Auger Fillers, Cup Fillers, etc.) controls the amount of product to be dispensed. In the bagging unit the heat sealable film flowing horizontally folds around a forming plough, then THREE vertical seals are imparted by vertical sealing units to form the pouch side seals and horizontal seal is imparted at the bottom of the pouch to form the bottom seal and at next station the filler dispenses the product and then the top seal is imparted to form a Standard HFFS 4 side sealed Flat Pouch or Stand-up Pouches.

The HFFS packaging machine is generally used when the product is fragile and cant withstand a high drop. It is also considered where the customer requires a stand up pouch or a pouch with a zipper and or with a spout that facilitates ease of opening and comfortable consumption of products. HFFS machines can deliver shaped pouches, which result in better product aesthetics and shelf presence.
