How do you optimize and choose the right equipment for your pouch filling & packaging line? EPIC’s Packaging Engineers study your line speed and production needs through a detailed design process before deciding upon the correct pouch form/fill/seal equipment. Expensive form/fill/seal machines may not be the right fit for your pouch filling application, and there is often a less complex machine that works better for your process.
Equipment is integrated as one, improving individual pieces of machinery through automation and machine collaboration to provide fluid movement of your product throughout the packaging line. Fill rates are guaranteed with complete turnkey solutions provided by EPIC.
Proper line design is used to understand how the complete project fits together to increase throughput and eliminate bottlenecks. Our engineering team identifies potential packaging line restraints, consolidates responsibility and improves equipment integration. The major functions we integrate for pouch filling lines include:
- Product Handling
