Commercial Food Packaging Machines – Which One is Best for Your Business?

Posted by AMAC

The production, packaging, and shipment of products is an important part of doing business in the food industry. Getting the right commercial food packaging machines is critical to success. If your organization works in this industry, then you already know how important it is to send each product out in optimal condition. A damaged package is the leading cause of these issues:

  • Spoiling
  • Spills
  • Lack of Freshness
  • Health Risks
  • Product Loss

Equipment implemented within a facility will have a direct impact on product quality as well as packaging integrity. A large variety of commercial food packaging machines are available, and it is essential to choose the right one to meet specified needs.

What Commercial Food Packaging Machines Are Available?

Not every commercial food packaging machine will work for every product or bag requirement. Some are designed to distribute meats or fish while others work better for dry goods. The first step is to know the details of what is being packaged and how. Choosing equipment not designed to work with your packaging or the type of product will be detrimental to the process.

Once you have a good understanding of this information, then you can begin to look at different providers and evaluate their available models for purchase. Here are a few different types of equipment available on the market:

  • Filling and Capping Machines – A newer addition, these are used to fill product into capped pouches containing liquids.
  • Vertical Form Fill Seal – An efficient, safe solution that creates the pouch, fills it with product, and then seals it for distribution.
  • Vacuum Sealing – Used to increased storage time while maintaining freshness. The equipment creates a tight seal to prevent air from entering and bacteria from growing.
  • Bagging Machines – Used for dry goods such as cereals or powders to maintain freshness.

This equipment is designed based on the good to be packaged and the type of packaging. For this reason, it is essential to match the equipment to these aspects of your operation. A vertical form fill sealer may not be the best option if you use specific bags to distribute the product. Alternatively, a bagging machine would not be best when the product is fish. Take enough time to know your needs before buying.
