The BEHN + BATES FFS technology

In future an increasing number of food, animal and pet food producers will want to fill their products into plastic bags. The motive: Each producer is keen on keeping packing costs as low as possible. The FFS bag meets this requirement to the largest possible extent. It is formed out of a gusseted tubular film, filled and sealed thus enabling the bag size to be optimally adjusted to the product. As a result film consumption is reduced.

In the beginning just granules could be reliably filled into FFS bags. But technologies have developed during the last few years. Nowadays convincing FFS packing solutions are available for powders & flours, too. Our delivery programme includes several machine variants differing in output, type of product dosing and de-aeration:
