Form Fill and Seal Bag Packaging

Form fill and seal bagging is an automated process that uses a continuous type of bag film that is filled and sealed to produce a sealed pouch. Form fill and seal bagging machines operate at high speeds to process multiple sealed bags continuously.

When to use a form fill and seal bag process

A form fill and seal bag operation is best used for repetitive production runs that use the same bag size. If versatility and flexibility are a concern, pre-made bags may be more suitable. Companies must balance requirements for volume, speed, and various bag size requirements.

Two Types of Form Fill and Seal Bagging

There are basically two different types of form fill and seal bagging equipment:

  • Vertical form fill and seal (VFFS)
  • Horizontal form fill and seal (HFFS)

Vertical form fill and seal bagging equipment operates on a vertical plane, sealing bags in an up and down process. This can take up less space when the work process area is tight.

Horizontal form fill and seal bagging equipment fills and seals bags on a sliding, horizontal plane where ends are cut from side to side.

Cost-Efficient Form Fill and Seal Bagging Services

Making the investment into form fill and seal bagging equipment can be costly but worth it if companies can eliminate ongoing labor expenses for bag filling and packaging. Companies that package thousands of bags a day may see a better return on investment with form fill and bag operations.
