How Has Vacuum Packaging Changed The World For Commercial Packagers and How Can It Improve Your Packaging Process?

When you go to the store and walk down the aisles, there are a wide variety of products in a multitude of shapes, sizes, colors, etc. But have you ever wondered how they got there? What the process is for getting a product from a manufacturer to the store shelves? Have you ever considered how has vacuum packaging changed the world? Vacuum packaging is one of the most popular options for packaging and manufacturing facilities today. And rightfully so! Vacuum packaging provides more than just a convenient product for customers, but plenty of benefits to manufacturers as well. Some of the benefits of vacuum packaging include: 

  • Reduced overhead costs. Vacuum packaging can almost completely eliminate the need for manual labor and employee intervention with a fully automated packaging line. 
  • Speed. Automated vacuum sealers can package items much faster than manual packaging methods. Vacuum packaging increases production speed and output volume, helping to keep up with demand. And with that, gone are the days of requiring employees to package items manually!
  • Extended product life. Vacuum packaging food helps to extend shelf life. Vacuum sealed packaging is highly durable and protects products from damaging elements like water, bacteria, and debris that can contaminate or ruin products.

And much more! AMAC Technologies is an industry leader in providing vacuum packaging equipment, and can help accommodate all of your manufacturing and packaging needs!


While there are a wide variety of vacuum packaging machines available on the market, not every machine has the same capabilities or is necessary for your specific type of operation. 

Examples of these machines include: 

  • The Form, Fill, Seal (FFS) Machine. The FFS machine is an ideal option for any manufacturing and packaging facility working with large or irregularly shaped items. These items could include whole fish, whole chickens, large blocks of cheese, large meats, shellfish, and more. This could also work for packaging things like electronics. FFS machines work by cutting c-fold film to fit each item and provide a custom, vacuum sealed pouch for each item. This form of packaging removes excess oxygen and provides an air-tight seal, locking out contaminants and keeping your product safe. 
  • The Pouch Filling Machine. The pouch filling machine also works well in the food industry and could be used for liquid items such as soups, beverages, sauces, or other items. This machine is for flat pouches, stand-up pouches, gusseted bags, and laminates! 
  • Chamber Machine. The chamber machine is incredibly durable and robust, and typically used in food industries, meat and chicken processors, fish and shellfish wholesalers, cheese, vegetables, frozen food packagers, supermarket chains, and warehouse Sales; for restaurants, catering services, chefs’ kitchens, and as packing for sous vide.
  • Nozzle Machine. The nozzle machine comes in two size options and helps to increase efficiency without compromising on size or speed for manufacturing and packaging facilities. These machines are used in a wide variety of industries, and an AMAC Technologies specialist can help you determine which one is best for you!
