Packaging Snapshot: Spouted pouch packaging is booming worldwide. High output is becoming that much more important. The new OptiPouch system virtually eliminates previous perfor-mance limitations. Fluid to viscous products are filled in pre-made pouches that have already been checked 100% for pinholes.

The OptiPouch system fills and closes up to 600 pouches per minute. The rotary machine also displays maximum flexibility in the process. It covers a format area of 50 to 1,500 ml without format parts. The format change takes place "on the fly.

Pouch designs can be customized in many different ways. Whether the products are stand-up pouches or side-gusseted bags with centred or corner spouts, there are a wide variety of possibilities. Various closure types such as "no spill," "anti-choke" or dosing dispensers can be integrated. There is also freedom in the material selection, with various laminated film structures to choose from. All bags are prefabricated and checked individually for tight sealing before delivery.

The footprint of the machine is compact at approximately 47 m². The hygienic design of the OptiPouch system has many features, including moisture protection in accordance with IP67/NEMA 4X. Operating the machine and supplying it with material requires little personnel effort. Of course, the machine can also be expanded by adding a CIP/SIP unit.
