The Triangle/JDD Rotary Pouch Machine is designed to fill and seal Doyen bags, three-sided seal, flat and standup pouches, and zippered bags. From Triangle Package Machinery, the system reportedly fills at speeds of up to 50 pouches per minute.
The rotary pouch filler is suitable for granola, snacks, candy, popcorn, dried fruit, nuts, baking mixes and other edible products. The machine automatically stops to fill, and unopened bags won’t be filled, reducing product waste. Also, the no-fill/no-seal feature enables unopened bags to be reused.
Two models are available. The JRPM-8812 handles bag widths from 4 to 8 inches wide and heights of 4 to 12 inches, while the JRPM-81215 accepts pouches from 6.5 to 12 inches wide and 8 to 15 inches high.
Users can add a number of options to the rotary pouch filler to enhance performance and functionality. These include nitrogen gas flush, staging gate, statistics backup on flash-card Ethernet, and turnkey integration.
Triangle Package Machinery will show the JDD Rotary Pouch Machine at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2019 in Booth C-2614.
