02.03.2020 Single packing line for pre-made and tubular bags

Concetti, Bastia Umbra, Italy, reports success with its novel ‘IGF + FFS combo’ automatic bagging system which is extremely versatile, allowing users to manage the two most popular types of flexible packaging for loose materials with a single machine: the pre-made open-mouth bag and bags formed from a tubular reel using form, fill, seal (TFFS) technology. The ‘combo’ concept guarantees direct producers or contractors, such as for example port service companies, the ability to use both special packaging for premium products and more basic bags for wholesale customers. Bags suitable for traditional markets or for the most advanced international standards can be filled with products from the same feeding system, thanks to a single machine which exploits two different technologies in a compact arrangement. The machine can handle paper, plastic and laminated raffia bags, for the packaging of granular and/or dusty products, in unit loads of between 10 and 50kg.

There are many opportunities to make the most of this technology. "It is an extremely versatile machine, very interesting even at the beginning of the automation process to test a product on the market before purchasing a specialised packaging line", explained Riccardo Concetti, sales director of Concetti SpA.

Concetti has supplied the ‘combo’ plant for the fertiliser, salt, plastic granules, pet food, cereals and vegetable industries. The company emphasises that having reliable and versatile systems is the fundamental objective of each bulk material manufacturer, especially in a continuously evolving market such as packaging, which is strongly affected by consumer habits. Since 1975, Concetti has been offering high quality packaging and palletising solutions, capable of adapting to multiple production needs.
