Rice & corn: Easy handling, high output, excellent weights

Granules & grains - e.g. crystal sugar, rice, corn and seeds - are easy to handle. They have excellent flowing characteristics and do not raise dust. High packing capacities are possible, filled weights are excellent.

For decades our gravity packer has proven its worth as a filling system for granules and grains into valve bags. Equipped with a special open-mouth bag filling spout it is even suitable for filling pre-fabricated open-mouth bags with food and foodstuffs.

Open-mouth bag filling to perfection is reached by our fully automatic systems:

  • TOPLINE® for pre-fabricated open-mouth bags
  • FFS system for FFS bags made from an endless gusseted film

Sugar, dextrose, maltodextrin & sorbitol: Clean packaging of sweet products

Sugar and sugar derivatives have a wide range of different grain sizes, from very fine to very coarse grains. All of them have to be handled properly in order not to destroy the corn structure. Therefore, only an adequately designed filling system guarantees that the product is filled gently and fast at the required speed.

Our pneumatic packer has proven its worth as an all-round filling system for filling sugar and sugar derivatives into valve bags. Our TOPLINE® system presents the most reliable automatic solution for pre-fabricated open-mouth bags.

In future the FFS technology will be the trend-setter: It forms the bag from a gusseted tubular film, fills and seals it. Thus, the bag size is automatically adjusted to your product - and the consumption of PE film is reduced.

You decide whether your bags are filled manually or automatically, at low or high outputs per hour. Our modular system provides the right solutions for each application - from filling up to palletizing.
