6.What are the differences between stick packing machine and VFFS machine?
Can you distinguish stick packing machine and VFFS machine? Seriously speaking, stick packing machine belongs to VFFS machine, however, there are still some differences between the two machines, let’s explore together.
- Stick packing machine can only produce stick packaging pouches, and the width and length of these pouches are limited. However, besides stick packages, VFFS machine can provide many other bag styles, including 3-side sealing bags, 4-side sealing bags, back sealing bags, guested bags, pillow bags and so on, and the sizes of these bags are not limited.
- As is mentioned that there are three types of stick packing machines: the single-lane one, the double-lane one and the multi-lane one, while VFFS machine only has one working channel, so sometimes the stick packing machine has higher production capacity than VFFS machine.
- In terms of design, stick packing machine and VFFS machine are different, the design of stick packing machine is more compact than that of VFFS machine, as a result, the maintenance of stick packing machine is more difficult and troublesome than that of VFFS machine.

7.How does stick packing machine work?
To be honest, the working principle of stick packing machine is very similar to that of VFFS machine, if you divide the whole working process of stick packing machine into different steps, there are 9 steps, which are as follows:
- Film Pulling: At the beginning, when the stick packing machine starts running, the packaging film which are stored on the film holder is pulled downward, to prepare for the bag forming step.
- Coding & Printing: This step is optional, not each stick packing machine has this function, if the machine is equipped with a coder, in this step, the production information, such as production date and expiry date, are printed on the packaging film.
- Film Tension: To provide a perfect packaging effect, there should be no wrinkle on the packaging film, therefore, before the bag forming step, the packaging film is pulled and tensioned.
- Stick Pack Forming: In this step, the packaging film enters the forming tube and be shaped. When the packaging film passes through the forming tube, it is folded, so, the two sides of the packaging film are overlapped, at this moment, a stick pack is formed.
- Horizontal Sealing: In the last step, the stick pack is formed, however, it can not package product because its top and bottom are not sealed, therefore, in the horizontal sealing step, the bottom of the stick pack is heat sealed so that it can play its role.
- Metering: When the stick pack is formed, the product need to be filled in it, and before the filling process, the product which is in the hopper is fallen into the measuring cup, this step is to ensure the filling accuracy.Notice that if a stick packing machine package different forms of products, the metering device is different, too.
- Product Filling: At this moment, the stick pack is already formed, and the product is measured, next, the product in the measuring cup is filled into a stick pack.
- Stick Pack Sealing: When the filling process is finished, the product is in the stick pack, but it can be poured out because the stick pack is not sealed. Therefore, in this step, the top of the stick pack is heat sealed, now, a complete stick package is produced.
- Cutting & Discharging: The sealing step is not the end of the working process of stick packing machine, don’t forget that the packaging film, or you can say, the stick packs are connected with each other. The stick packing machine is equipped with a cutting device which can cut off the connection of stick packs, and then the finished products are fallen down and discharged.
8.What parts constitute a stick packing machine?
A stick packing machine is similar to your body, only if all the organs work together, your body can run normally and healthily, so does the stick packing machine. So, what parts consist of a stick packing machine? Let’s discuss together.

- Volumetric Cup:This is a measuring and dosing device for your product, before the product is filled into stick packs, it need to be measured first.
- Forming Tube: This is the place where the stick pack is formed, when the packaging film passes through this component, it is folded into stick pack.
- Vertical Seal Jaw:The function of vertical seal jaw is to heat seal the side of the formed stick pack.
- Hot Horizontal Sealing Device: Like the vertical seal jaw, the hot horizontal sealing device is to heat seal the stick pack, but it is to seal the bottom and top of that.
- Cutting Device: This part is to cut off the connection of each two stick packs so that they can become separated packages.
- Conveyor: When the whole packaging process is at the end, the finished products will fallen down on the conveyor and be discharged.
