View challenge: C-7130-0101 - Seeking options for innovative packing using FFS Machine
Our client is seeking options for innovative packing using FFS Machine.

FFS (Form Fill Seal) machines create pillow type of packs. The typical sizes of these packs in shown in table 1. The machines used for packing pillow pouches are normal form fill seal machines which packs pouches like shown in figure 1.

figure 1

The machines form the pouch with the help of Former, which folds the laminate, seals the bottom portion, fills the product and then seals the top portion. Technical specifications and the typical dimensions of these machines are shown in table 2 & table 3 respectively.

The laminates used are mostly in two or three layers.

Two layer laminate comprises Pet/Polyethylene and the three layer laminate consists of Pet/metPet/polyethylene. Finally, the laminates are sealed at a temperature of around 130 degree Celsius.

For the discerning customer, this packaging (pillow) is not aspirational. It does not have any advantage from a standpoint of shelf throw or convenience of use. Therefore, we want to change the packaging design. However, to make any changes in the pillow pack, the capability of FFS machines prove to be a bottleneck and the investment required to completely change FFS machines is too high.

We are therefore, looking to create new/unique/innovative pack designs that can be achieved only by changing the forming section of the existing FFS machines (Electro mechanical and Servo driven).

We are not interested in the following solutions:
Buying new machines
Niche Ideas that cannot be scaled up
Leads to an incremental cost of more than 3- 5% per kg
