PRE-MADE POUCH FILL & SEAL
World's new champion in flexible packaging
Nortech Packaging ROO-100 Pre-made pouch fill & seal machine can pack almost anything into a pouch, whether it is coffee, protein powder, snacks or stick packs that require secondary packaging.
COMPONENTS AND SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
MACHINE CAN BE MODIFIED INTO ANY POUCH SIZE RANGE
Consists out of pouch magazine, pouch carrier system, pouch feed, pouch opening station, filling station and sealing station. Custom add-ons like bottom pouch support, metal detector, code date printer and nitrogen gas flushing are also available and we plan to develop more add-ons in the future, such as net weigher or pouch form module.
The magazine consists of the servo driven lugged conveyor and auto- adjustable symmetrical guides. Operator places stack of pouches in the magazine cells, where pouch accurate positioning is assured with the guides and lug relative positions. Based on the pouch starving sensor signal, servo is indexing the belt in order to bring next cell filled with pouches into the loading position.
No need for pouches shingling
Quick auto-adjustment for different pouch width by simple guides repositioning.
Servo driven three head rotary unit utilize vacuum suction cups to pick a pouch from the magazine, and deliver in to the pouch carrier system. Based on the pouch registration sensor signal, servo calculates necessary correction which assure accurate pouch positioning in the grippers.
In order to be transferred through the machine for different operations, a pouch has to be secured between two grippers. This unique design utilize two servo driven synchronized chain track, where each supports one of the grippers.
Simplified / cost effective design
Theoretically there isn`t limit in the pouch width range.
Machine pitch/indexing length isn`t affected with the bag width
Quick auto-adjustment for different pouch width by simple track repositioning
Gripper design utilize toggle clamps providing excessive gripping force and eliminating need for non-reliable springs.
By applying vacuum suction cups in the pouch area above a zipper, pouch is pre-opened enough to insert mechanical fingers. After inserted, fingers are used to pinch each side of a pouch moving it apart, assuring positive zipper pouch opening.
Filling tube moves slightly into pouch to assure that pouch will form properly to eliminate product spillage. Optionally, additional filling station(s) can be added.
The machine can be integrated with any standard filling/dosing system.
Top side of a pouch is sealed with the hot sealing bar. Pouch cooling is an option.
BOTTOM POUCH SUPPORT (OPTION)
For heavier pouches this unit will relive weight from the grippers, while vibratory mechanism will help product settlement.
CODE DATE PRINTER (OPTION)
There is a station provided where printer can be mounted to the linear actuator
NITROGEN GAS FLUSHING (OPTION)
METAL DETECTION (OPTION)
HOW IT WORKS
POUCH SETUP & GRIP
DEPENDING ON YOUR PACKAGING NEEDS, THE ROO-100 CAN FEATURE:
Machine can feature washdown structure with Nema 4x
enclosures, so you can clean the machine with a spray of water
without worrying about electrical components or rust.
Prints a code/date on the pouch. Inludes camera
HOLE PUNCH / DIE CUT
Punches or cuts a hang hole aﬅer pouch sealing.
BOTTOM POUCH SUPPORT
Conveyor system provides additional support for heavier
pouches, relieving pressure on the grippers.
NITROGEN GAS FLUSHING
Fills the pouch with nitrogen right before sealing the pouch.
Nitrogen (unlike oxygen) keeps your product fresh.
Cools the area of the pouch that is heated by sealing
Eliminates excessive air from the pouch.
Provides improved product settling inside the pouch.
