India-based Uflex has developed new four lane automatic linear pick, fill, and seal (PFS) machine LPFS-4T to pack various products including tea, sugar, salt, granular, and others.

Compared to other rotary PFS machines, the new Uflex LPFS-4T can increase the filling and sealing speed of 3 dimensional (3D) and flat bottom pouches by more than twofold. Uflex LPFS-4T’s vacuum cups can also clamp open a pouch by holding its panels.

Enabling the insertion of larger products inside 3D pouches, the newly developed machine is suitable for fill Doypack or stand up pouches, as well as three side seal and normal zipper pouches.

In addition, Uflex LPFS-4 can be integrated with volumetric, gravimetric, or liquid filling systems.

"Flat Bottom Pouches or the 3 dimensional pouches (3D) are one of the most brilliant and efficient examples of modern day packaging."

Uflex's chairman and managing director Ashok Chaturvedi said: “The flexible packaging industry has evolved rather rapidly and now one can see the most innovative packaging solutions on the retail shelf.

“Flat Bottom Pouches or the 3 dimensional pouches (3D) are one of the most brilliant and efficient examples of modern day packaging. Owing to the unavailability of a suitable filling machine, the magic of these brilliant 3D pouches was somewhat restrained.

“I am glad that my engineering team at Uflex has created a machine that can ensure wider mouth openings of flat bottom pouches, ensuring easy filling at much higher speeds and output rates. This, in turn, will surely give boost to the sale of flat bottom pouches.”

The company is planning to showcase UFLEX LPFS-4T at the upcoming International PackTech to be held in India from 15 to 17 December.
