WeighPack launched its newest vertical form, fill and seal machine for high-speed applications, the VF 1200 continuous motion bagger. Debuted at PackExpo International in Chicago last month, this bagging machine can produce up to 150 bags per minute in varying sizes up to 16 inches in length. 

The VF 1200 can handle multiple package formats and produces a wide range of package sizes providing flexibility for both retail and club-size packaging for industries ranging from snack foods and confectionery to frozen foods and baked goods.  

This continuous-motion bagger form WeighPack features vertical sealing bars that are continuously in motion, so the film does not need to stop to receive its vertical seal. This provides an advantage over vertical, form, fill and seal machines with intermittent motion seal bars which only open and close in full sequence, resulting in lower production rates. 

Engineered with an open-frame design for easy operator access, the VF 1200 features stainless steel construction, vacuum pull belts, second film roll support, film splice table, Omron motion controller and servos, a 15-inch color touchscreen, and tool less removable vertical seal bar,  horizontal jaws and forming shoulder.  

Options available include full sanitary washdown, bag gusset attachment, integrated printer, hole punch, and more.  

WeighPack can customize a turnkey system to meet almost any weighing, filling, and bagging need. Their multi-head weighers, linear net weighers, and bagging machines are used across many industries. They also offer a variety of labeling machines and end-of-line solutions. 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
