Form-fill-seal (FFS) automated bagging systems are designed to form/open a poly bag/pouch which is then manually or automatically filled with the product and then sealed closed.
Form-fill-seal systems can be horizontal where the bag is formed horizontally or vertical where the bags is formed vertically. Most FFS systems use air to open the bag and may have a scale above the bag where the product is weighed out and then dropped into the formed bag.
FFS systems can accommodate a wide variety of poly bags sizes and with a variety of features such as: stand-up, gussets, zippers, zip lock & hole punches. Some form-fill-seal systems can fill up to 120 bags per minute depending on the product and bag size. Options may include a bag coder, bag top trimmer, gas flush, infeed & out feed conveyors, and product weighing scales.
