Horizontal Packaging Machine
A horizontal packaging machine produces and/or fills the packaging with the product horizontally, as opposed to a vertical packaging machine. When deciding what type of machine to use, your product’s size, volume and other criteria are to be considered. Also your decision should consider your current and future needs (for example a change of products or production expansion). If your product can easily fall and be dropped without a specific product orientation, it can be packaged vertically. Examples are potato chips, sugar or liquids. If you are looking for a machine that will pack your free flowing product into a stand-up pouch bag, a Doybag, or need a specific orientation (e.g. cookies or other confectionery), a horizontal machine would be best suited.
