- Used Machinery
A sachet machine is designed for the packaging of small, sealed packets or sachets containing various products. It is particularly useful for packaging items in small and single-serving quantities. Common applications for sachet machines include packaging:
Sachet packaging is practical for a variety of industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and more. It provides convenience for consumers and is often used for sample-sized products, travel-sized items, or portions with controlled dispensing. For the dosing system the sachet machine can be equipped with an auger or piston filler .
The working principle of a sachet machine involves a series of steps to accurately and efficiently package a product into small, sealed sachets. Here is a simplified overview of the typical process:
Product Feeding: The product, whether it’s a powder, liquid, or granule, is fed into the machine’s hopper or feeding system.
Film Unwinding: The packaging material, usually a roll of film, is unwound to create a continuous web that will form the sachets.
Forming: The packaging material is formed into a tube, and the bottom of each sachet is sealed to create a temporary pouch.
Filling: The product is measured and dispensed into each pouch. The amount is controlled to ensure consistency in each sachet.
Sealing: The top of each sachet is sealed to enclose the product securely. The sealing process can involve heat sealing, ultrasonic sealing, or other sealing methods depending on the machine’s design.
Cutting: The continuous strip of sealed sachets is then cut into individual units.
Output: The finished sachets are then conveyed or collected for further packaging or distribution.
