FAWEMA Bags, sacks and pouches
As a producer of machines that pack hugely different products, from fine powders to bulkier products like wood charcoal and cat litter, we understand the needs of each industry when it comes to the final pack that must be achieved.
FAWEMA equipment is diverse and flexible allowing our customers to utilise a wide range of bags and have a large variety of closure options. Retail pre-made paper bags and sacks in a weight range of up to 25 kgs can be tightly sealed in a variety of ways, from standard hotmelt glue application to applying labels and top stitching to deliver both brick-style packs and gable top packs.
FAWEMA can also run premade plastic bags on a large range of the machines that we produce. The pre-made plastic can have many different closures, including zip closures and ultrasonic sealing.
Typically, pre-made plastic bags have been used in the Pet food industry, but there has been a shift away from the traditional paper bags in the loose tea, sugar and even flour industries, to pre-made plastic bags.
FAWEMA has in recent times installed machines that can pack into a pre-made paper and pre-made plastic bags. The underlying reasons that the industries want this flexibility, are the plastic bags can be completely airtight sealed and the bags allow for better marketing and are more visually appealing to the consumer on the shop shelf.
FAWEMA develops and produces its own Form fill and seal machines, which create the bag initially on the machine from roll stock film or film composites. The bags when formed and filled can then be closed in the same way as a pre-made bag.
