When you want to buy a VFFS packaging machine, it is important to ensure you have the appropriate factors to consider.
There are many types of VFFS machines and to make sure you get what will be of satisfactory service to you, you can use the below tips:
The Controls of the Machine –
You wouldn’t like a machine that will be too complicated to control. It should be easy to control with a digitalized system that enables you to just press buttons and set the way you would like the machine to have. The memory of the machine should be sufficient enough to enable you to save all details for your packaging works. Use of red, green and yellow buttons helps in notifying the user of the machine about what is happening with the machine.
Frame Construction Style –
A robust and heavy frame of VFFS packaging machine enables the machine to be stable and function appropriately. If the machine is weak, you will have to always apply additional stability measures to stop it from shaking. Take a look and see if the frame is made using bolts and nuts. Bolts and nuts create a breeding place for bacteria thereby making your packaging process to be unhealthy and unhygienic. Bolts also loosen over time and you may need to have your frame regularly fixed. To prevent yourself from all these misfortunes, choose a welded frame.
Remote Control Capability –
At times you may be busy with other activities away from the VFFS packaging machine, but you still want to control the functioning of your machine. If it is remote control enabled, you will be able to adjust settings from a far distance to make it function as you want. Internet-enabled machines provide an easy way for troubleshooting and restoring the functioning of your machine.
These are the basic principles you need to consider or check for but there are other technical features like jaw closure set, film unwinds, film tracking and seal cooling capability. Take your time and analyze all these features so that you get the best machine that will function appropriately.
