FM E 50 FFS (rotary, forming, filling and sealing pouch machine)

The FME 50 is an intermittent operating rotary machine to manufacture various types of pouches: 3-sides or 4-sides sealed pouches, stand-up pouches and bottom fold type pouches. Like all SN pouch packaging machines, this one is also easy to use, extremely economical and equipped with valuable SN Pouch Packing technology gathered from years of market experience.

The new SN FM E 50 form, fill and seal pouch machine is tailor designed and constructed in Germany. It has been specially developed as a plug & play concept, meaning from delivery – positioning, installation and first pouch commissioning can be performed with 30 minutes.

The FM E 50 is only available in a simplex execution for a pouch range from 50-170 x 70-210mm. And benefits from an extremely attractive compact footprint of 3,700 x 1,180mm. Suitable for dry products and powders with an output up to 80 pouches per minute.

The easy operating pouch machine system, developed in-house by SN engineers and years of pouch knowledge and experience, provides proven and reliable form, fill and seal pouch production with a quick format change, from sachet-sachet within 15 minutes, and from sachet to stand-up-pouch of 30 minutes.

To ensure fast change-overs can be achieved, most components have been fitted with quick release handles and can be operated without the use of tools. This relates to the side sealing/cooling beams, bottom sealing beams as well as the central carousel segments.

Basic machine features include knife design as per faster and more advanced pouch machines systems, de-centralised control structure for all servo motion drives, 7" HMI positioned at the machine discharge, centralised gripper adjustment and an empty pouch reject station on postion 8 of the carousel.

Additionally, and in line with all SN pouch machines, a range of technical options are available upon request. Such as zipper insertion, nitrogen gas flushing, stand up pouch variants, synchronisation with a multi head scale, cross feed auger, dust extraction etc.

Flexible possible applications:

  • Interface for multihead scale or auger doser
  • Single sealing frames with quick and simple format changeover
  • Folding wedge adjustment for bottom fold width (manual execution)
  • Exemption of the sealing tools during machine stops
  • Format changeover in less than 15 minutes
  • Central gripper adjustment for pouch width (manual execution)
  • Quick commissioning – plug & play
  • Simple machine operating – short training
  • Compact machine measures – less production space required
