Volpak, a Coesia company specialised in the manufacturing of HFFS machines for consumer goods, continues the evolution of its flagship ’SC+’. The latest version of the machine has been designed for preformed pouches and features a high level of automation, ensuring the production of the best quality packaging. It’s been designed mainly for the Asian market and it’s employable by different industries, from food to home to personal care, both for solid and liquid products.
The latest SC+ version has been developed for the filling and packaging of preformed pouches. In this version, the machine has an extremely compact layout that allows its use in small spaces. Moreover, the high level of automation and the precision of its mechanical mechanisms guarantee the production of extremely high-quality pouches, completely imperfection-free.
The SC+ is flexible enough to allow its use in other industries as well, regardless of the density and foaming properties of the product. This means that the SC+ is also suitable for the packaging of solid products and can be used in fields ranging from chemicals to pet food, for the packaging of products such as motor oil, ketchup type sauces and dry pet food.
All of this is also made possible by the ample flexibility that the SC+ allows in terms of materials: the customer can employ pouches made with different types of films, including recyclable mono-materials, with a positive impact on the environment. The closure system also allows for great flexibility; SC+ can employ different kinds of caps that can also be positioned differently depending on the circumstances. SC+ has three different setups for preformed pouches: the machine for pouches up to a liter is equipped with 24 dosing units, the one for up to two-litre pouches is equipped with 20 dosing units, while the one for the biggest form factor, three litres, has 16 dosing units.
The SC+ machine has been designed to meet the Industry 4.0 requirements, which demand minimal supervision by the operator and low maintenance, thus guaranteeing a 60 per cent saving on such costs compared to more commonly used machines. The SC+ is also extremely efficient, both from an energy consumption point of view and in terms of packaging material waste, which are very small, with a percentage of rejected pouches about 85 per cent lower compared to the competition.
