The installation of the new Mamata Vega 610 at the co.'s Cary, IL, facility aims to increase the range of pouches from 3-side-seal flat styles to unlimited sizes without requiring new tooling for the machine. The pouchmaker also produces Doyen-style, stand-up pouches with plowed-in bottoms as well as zippers and tear notches. The new pouchmaker is all-servo driven, with a speed range of 1,500- to 5,000- cycles/hr, depending on the pouch type and configuration. It will handle a maximum web width of 1,220-mm, and a sealing width of 8-mm.
