Rovema Vertical Bagger
ROVEMA Packaging Machines has added a servo-driven, multi-hole punch assembly to their existing VPK-260 machine specifically for the coffee market. The result is a continuous motion vertical bagger that can punch holes in a moving film web and accurately place valves over the holes. Additionally, the VPK-260 incorporates a Nitrogen Gas Flushing System that helps retain product freshness.

The VPK-260 offers the fastest possible speeds due to its patented servo driven continuous “D-Motion” cross sealing jaws which allow for more filling and sealing times, states the company. It features integrated controls with Allen Bradley ControlLogix and a PC-based touch screen. With its few moving parts and easy access to machine components, the VPK simplifies inspection, lowers maintenance costs and results in higher uptimes. Size changeovers take less than 10 minutes.

Rovema’s VPK-260 produces Pillow Style Bags, Flat Bottom Style Bags, Stabilo Seal Bags and other packages. The VPK processes a wide variety of different heat sealable and L.D.P.E. films ranging from very thin water soluble films to heavy paper structures.
