PBT / APK series are high performance, reliable, fully automated, single lane vertical packaging machines of highest class for single portion packing of variable loose (powder, granulate), piece and liquid goods into pyramidal bags, stickpacks and flat bags sealed on three sides. According to the packed product the packaging machine is equipped with suitable dosing equipment.

Bags are made from an endless roll of heat sealable packing material. The foil passes through a forming part, is sealed lengthwise and makes sleeves. The hose is pulled down for a set length then sealed by a cross jaw and a precise dose of packed goods and is filled through the tube. The attractive shape of pyramidal bags is made by two pairs of cross jaws that seal the bags by turning for 90° and making bags of triangel shape. Pair of cross jaws seals bags transversely and integrated blade cuts the bags off onto an exit conveyor that transports the bags for further handling.

The bag shape can be changed automatically on the panel. All parts that come into contact with goods of food character are made of stainless steel AISI 304 (upon a special request also in AISI 316L). The packaging machine is possible to combine with other optional accessories. PBT-K - continual, PBT-D - discontinual, APK - continual.
