The use of vertical packaging machine


Vertical packaging machines are often used for packaging block, flake, granular, stem, branch, powder, and fluid and semi-fluid materials. It mainly relies on the gravity of the packaged items, and when necessary, it can be packaged with certain mechanical action. Vertical packaging machines generally have two packaging functions, and the two cutting functions can be easily switched. Vertical packaging machines are widely used in food, medicine and other fields.



The working principle of vertical packaging machine


The roll film placed on the supporting device is wound through the guide roller group and the tensioning device. After the position of the trademark pattern on the packaging material is detected by the photoelectric detection control device, it is rolled into a film cylinder and wrapped in the filling tube by the former.


First, a longitudinal heat sealer is used to longitudinally heat seal the film at the interface that is rolled into a cylinder to obtain a sealed tube, and then the cylindrical film is moved to the transverse heat sealer for horizontal sealing to form a packaging bag tube. The metering device fills the measured items into the packaging bag through the upper filling tube, and then is heat-sealed by the transverse heat sealer and cut in the center to form the packaging bag unit body and at the same time form the bottom seal of the next tube bag.
