Jan-Pieter Grootendorst, market development specialist, Symach, A thiele technologies company, gives his opinion on end-line packaging trends, and which aspects manufacturers should consider and opt for in order to improve their business.
Symach’s Fillstar is a versatile bag filler that fills open mouth bags up to 30 tons and suits all types of free-flowing material applications.
Its modular design offers customers a choice of several closing stations which can be integrated in the main frame, including sealing, sewing and pinch top closing techniques.
Designed to offer flexibility, the bag filler can also accommodate different bag styles, types and sizes. This includes gusseted and non-gusseted PE, PE-PET, poly-woven and paper open mouth bags ranging from 4-50 kg. Despite these variables, the machine performs consistently at an average of 20 bags of 25 kg per minute or 30 tons per hour.
