Automatic Pouch Packing Machines
An automatic pouch packing machine is designed to automate the process of filling and sealing flexible pouches or bags. It operates by taking a continuous roll of packaging material, converting it into individual pouches, filling them with the desired product, and then sealing them securely. Automatic pouch filling and sealing machines are used in a wide range of industries, including food and drink, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. Users of these machines can enjoy several advantages, such as increased production speed, reduced packaging costs, improved product freshness, enhanced product protection, and the flexibility to adapt their packaging requirements.

Types of Pouch Filling Systems
Pouch packing machines come in two primary categories: pre-made and reel-fed.
Pre-made pouch machines are designed to fill and seal pre-existing pouches or bags, making them ideal for industries where packaging specifications are consistent. On the other hand, reel-fed pouch machines start with a continuous roll of packaging material, which is then formed into pouches, filled with the product, and sealed. This versatility makes reel-fed pouch machines suitable for a broader range of products and packaging styles, offering flexibility to adapt to changing requirements in various industries.
Our MH25 and MH250 pre-made pouch machines can handle different pouches and packs, with or without zips. They work with various bag sizes and can be used alongside automatic filling systems, multi-head weighers, powder fillers, depositors, and liquid fillers. Depending on the model, they may have one or two filling stations.
The MH170 FE is a reel-fed pouch machine capable of producing pouches or Doypacks, with or without zips. It features three filling stations, enabling the use of mixed products or multiple fillings for maximum efficiency. It can also be seamlessly integrated with automatic filling systems like powder fillers, liquid fillers, depositors, and multi-head weighers.
How do pouch packaging machines work?
There are various models of pouch filling and sealing machines available on the market, including both semi-automatic and fully automatic pouch packing machines.
Whilst automatic pouch filling machines are designed to handle high-volume production and can fill, seal and package pouches in a single process, semi-automatic pouch filling machines require some manual intervention. For instance, they may require manual loading of pouches, in addition to requiring someone to physically stop and start the filling process.
Regardless of the pouch machine type, the process usually starts with the machine placing empty pouches onto the filling station, where the product is dispensed into them. Next, a pouch heat sealing machine seals the pouches airtight. Some pouch sealing machines offer extra features, like automatic cleaning, adjustable filling volume, spillage prevention barriers, and pouch detection sensors, which boost efficiency and minimise waste. At Autopack, our pouch packing machines are known for their user-friendliness, efficiency, and reliability.
