In this blog post, we’re reviewing a Closing option in the form of the Fischbein PILS-300 Pinch Inner-Liner Sealer (PILS) for Multi-Wall Paper Bags.
Fischbein PILS-300 Pinch Inner-Liner Sealer
The Fischbein PILS-300 is a pinch inner-liner sealer for multi-wall paper bags. It’s designed to close a pre-glued, pinch-style bag with a heat-sealable PE (polyethylene) or foil inner liner.
The machine makes two separate and consecutive closures in a single pass. First, it seals the bag’s PE inner liner and then it reactivates the bag’s pre-applied hot melt adhesive strip and automatically folds over the top of the bag, forming a sift-proof closure.
The PILS-300 is capable of speeds as high as 75 fpm and is compatible with either semi or fully-automated bagging systems. It’s also engineered with a high-speed, maintenance-free, direct drive system that maximizes production.
The sift-proof closure makes this bag style perfect for use with certain food products, food additives, dry chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, and pet food products.

Key features of the Fischbein PILS-300:
- Pinch inner-liner paper bag sealer
- The PILS 300 makes two separate and consecutive closures in a single pass. First, it seals the inside PE liner, and then it folds and seals the top of the pre-glued pinch bag, thus sealing both the PE inner liner and the bag’s pre-glued pinch-style closure
- Capable of speeds as high as 75 fpm
- Compatible with either semi or fully-automated bagging systems
- Engineered with a high-speed, maintenance-free, direct-drive system
- The PILS 300 has a variable speed drive system that allows you to adjust the sealing speed from 10 to 75 feet per minute. This makes it versatile enough to handle a variety of bag sizes and production speeds.
- Has an open design that makes it easy to clean and service. This can help to prevent downtime and keep your production line running smoothly.
- A bag-jam detector with a breakaway feature prevents the machine from being damaged if a bag gets jammed
- Has a manual feed bag top guide that helps to ensure that the bags are properly aligned for sealing. This can help to prevent leaks and other problems
- A bag-top air scrubber that removes debris from the seal area. This can help to prevent contamination and ensure that the seals are strong and secure.
- The PILS 300 has a thermal sensor that prevents the machine from overheating. This can help to protect the machine and prevent fires.
- The PILS 300 feeds bags from right to left. This is the most common bag feed direction, so it is likely to be compatible with your existing equipment.
- Has an adjustable seal height that makes it easy to change over to different bag sizes. This can save you time and money.
- The PILS 300 has high-efficiency heaters that can cut energy requirements by up to 10%. This can save you money on your energy bills.
