Packing machines for FFS bags

How to ensure cleanliness and efficiency in your packing operation

The packaging of your quality products must fulfil various requirements. It should be clean, compact, accurate in weight and easy to store in order to optimally protect your product. The Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) bag fullfils these requirements to the highest degree. It is formed from a gusseted tubular film, filled and sealed. The bag size is thus optimally adapted to your product and film consumption is reduced.

Initially, only granulates could be reliably and safely filled into FFS bags, but nowadays filling is also possible for powders and flours thanks to refined and sophisticated technologies. We have various machine types that differ in terms of the type of product dosing, filling and deaeration as well as the available output ranges.

Maximize product protection for your highly sensitive foods with our ADAMS CARE-LINE Edition

Maintaining high hygiene standards

Under the motto "WE TAKE CARE", our BEHN + BATES experts developed the ADAMS CARE-LINE EDITION - a packing solution that combines proven components with EHEDG guidelines under new hygiene aspects. The special feature is that the most hygienic packaging material for highly sensitive food - airtight PE film bags – is filled reliably.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Maximum cleanliness due to the use of completely encapsulated components, as well as rounded corners and bevelled edges
  • Maximum weight accuracy through use of separate coarse and fine flow dosing
  • Reduced maintenance efforts due to continuous gentle operation of downstream aggregates
  • A compact bag shape due to corner welding for stable side gussets and head air extraction before sealing the filled bag
  • Easy operation thanks to the clearly laid out touch panel and the open and accessible machine design for quick cleaning and maintenance

Perfectly tailored to your powdery products

Top marks for product protection, logistics and product presentation - the FFS bag formed from an endless gusseted tubular film meets these requirements. Our ADAMS technology for powder guarantees:

  • Optimum bag preparation by cutting off the film length required for your product and subsequent bottom seam and corner welding
  • A clean filling thanks to the dust-tight BEHN + BATES powder filling spout, which fills your product according to the gross system via air or impeller units
  • A clean and efficient overall result due to internal and bottom vibrators for optimum product compaction in the bag

Your advantages at a glance

  • Compact bag shapes due to simultaneous bag filling and compaction as well as integrated corner welding
  • The highest tensile strength of modern – even the thinnest – films to avoid bag breakage in the entire logistics chain
  • A compact machine design that not only stands for efficiency and space saving, but also fulfils the strict hygiene standards of the food industry

Rely on our FFS machines TOPAS SF and FFS 600 for your granulate filling

This way you make a powerful decision

A guarantee for maximum performance and convenience when filling granulate into FFS (Form-Fill-Seal) bags – that‘s what the flexible FFS systems produced by our sister company AVENTUS stand for:

  • TOPAS SF - the high-performance machine for high-end applications (over 2,800 bags/h  in real packaging operations);
  • FFS 600 - the flexible design for multiple applications (up to 550 bags/h).

The two design variants are compact, fully enclosed packing machines for filling grains and granulates. They also work according to our proven Plug' n Pack principle, so they only need to be connected and adjusted for your product. The filling can already begin.

Your advantages at a glance

  • Space-saving, high-performance and robust machine design
  • Easy operation and maintenance due to clear and intuitive user guidance
  • High user-friendliness through a clean packaging environment, good machine accessibility, and low noise levels
  • High flexibility due to mobile machine design and easy transition to other product and film types
