Vertical form/fill/seal


The Hawk Evolution vertical form/fill/seal has the smallest footprint in the industry for the bag size it will manufacture. It can make a bag up to 12" wide and 18" long. It uses a maintenance-free stepper motor designed to run for hundreds of millions of cycles with little to no maintenance. the  The machine will accommodate three bag styles: pillow bag, typically used in the potato chip industry; a gusseted bag; and a flat bottom bag, commonly used for coffee.  It will run and seal just about any structure of polyethylene, laminated or metalized film, or foil. When a bag width change is needed, the Hawk is equipped from the film spindle through the pull belt mechanism with no tool change features.
