BEUMER Group expands the BEUMER fillpac FFS filling machine product family

BEUMER Group introduces the BEUMER fillpac FFS form fill seal system both for the high-capacity range of up to 2,600 bags per hour and for low throughputs starting from 1,800 bags per hour. Depending on the customer requirements the suitable machine performance class can be selected from the extended product range.

BEUMER Group develops entire packaging lines from one single source for the (petro)chemical industry. This means that the customer can reduce the number of vendor interactions as only one point of contact is required. What is special is how the system supplier dimensions the performance of the single machines and components as well as the high-level control in an optimum way, providing the customer with maximum throughput. As a system supplier, BEUMER Group expanded the BEUMER fillpac FFS form fill seal system product family in order to offer even more tailored solutions for specific applications. Customers can now get the filling system for high-capacities of up to 2,600 bags per hour and for low throughputs starting from 1,800 per hour, used for example in the fertiliser industry. Depending on the requirements the suitable machine performance class can be selected from the extended product range.

Rapid product changes
"We offer an easy to clean solution for the low-capacity versions," says sales engineer Christian Freise from BEUMER Group. Special products in particular and other coloured granules are handled at lower capacities. Fine dust is often a by-product when filling granules into bags. Another disadvantage is that small granules can get stuck in the machine. When using the BEUMER fillpac FFS, the users can simply clean the machine with water, before a colour change. "The round scale we provide is designed so that residues can be removed more easily," describes Freise.

With its BEUMER fillpac FFS, the system supplier BEUMER Group presents itself as single-source provider for filling, palletising and packaging technologies. This machine forms a ready-made PE tubular film into a bag and fills it with engineering plastics like PE, PP, PA or PS granules. Reliable and gentle filling is also possible for salts or fertilisers. The pellets are then weighed before the filling process. For this, the BEUMER fillpac FSS is equipped with an electronic calibration-capable weighing unit. Then the system seals the bags with a weight of up to 25 kg.
