Complete Packaging Systems for Flexible Packaging

Range of machines
Link Pack Group is proud to offer one of the most complete range of automatic bagging machinery in Canada.  If you are considering flexible packaging to pack your products, we certainly can help find the right solution.

 

Working closely with market leading manufacturers of packaging equipment makes our job easy and pleasant.  We know we can count on our OEM Partners at every stage of your project and never let you down.

 

Every single year, our suppliers will bring innovative packaging, improved designed and faster machines to the market place to make sure you can stay ahead.

Integrated Systems
Choosing the right bagging system is only one piece of the puzzle.  Products need to be efficiently transferred from the processing side to the packaging area and accurately filled into the flexible package.  We have industry-wide connections with major OEM Partners to supply the right scale, filler or robotic feeder to integrate perfectly with your bagger system.

 

Efficiency does not stop after bags are properly filled and sealed, they typically need to be inspected for defects and packed in cartons, trays, cases or other secondary packaging.  Link Pack Group can supply fully integrated packaging lines for bags and pouches by integrating coding systems, seal inspection, metal detectors, checkweighers, x-ray systems and reject any faulty products.

We understand the packaging machinery business and we believe we can help in many areas:

Baggers for cheese & meat - USDA 3A Compliant

The dairy and meat industries require the highest sanitation procedure when it comes to primary packing areas.  The packaging equipment in those factories must not only resist the punishment of heavy washing and sanitation daily, but they must also be designed to avoid retention of products or water in any areas and be accessible to cleaning and inspection all around.   

 

SN Pouch Pack is proud to offer, on a worldwide scale, a range of Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal Baggers for shredded cheese, meat products or any other products packed in a plant where equipment must meet USDA 3A sanitation standard.  Vertical Form-Fill-Seal bagger meeeting USDA 3A Dairy Standards are available from Triangle Package Company.

Stickpack Multilane Machines

The stickpack is an advantageous and convenient solution as alternative to conventional single-dose packaging.  The use of this type of packaging is more sustainable because it employs less material and it reduces volume.

 

ARANOW is proud to offer, on a worldwide scale, a range of user-friendly multilane stickpack machines for packaging any type of product – regardless of being in granular, pieces, powder or liquid form.  While all stickpack multilane machine built by Aranow can be customized, they are offered in three main series when it comes to production speed.  Model an300 for low speed production, model an650 for moderate speed and model an1000 for high-speed.

Flat Sachet

Flat sachet technology is commonly used in the Pharma, Food and cosmetic industries, especially for products in granulate, liquid or powder form. It is the optimum format for sampling or to be attached with magazines because it is thinner than stick pack, and very flexible for format changing.

Pillow Bags made from rollstock

Pillow Bags are made from rollstock on Vertical Form-Fill-Seal Baggers and commonly used in industries such as snack, cereal, poultry and frozen food. Pillow Bags can be made from various film and run at high speed in a very small footprint.  Vertical FFS Baggers are relatively inexpensive compared to Horizontal FFS Baggers and size changeovers are easier and faster to achieve.

 

Triangle Package Machinery Company is manufacturing both intermittent and continous-motion VFFS in Chicago, IL, USA.  They are offering washdown VFFS compliant to USDA 3A sanitation standards.

Quad Seal Bags made from rollstock

Quad seal bags feature a flat bottom, crisp corner seals, and optional offset back seal, which provides a clean space at the back of the package for additional graphics. For many products, such as cereal or crackers, the stand-up bags also offer improved sustainability and material savings, as they eliminate the need for a cardboard carton. Additional markets include IQF poultry or specialty products, confectionery, and snacks.

 

Model XYT can run supported (laminated) or non-supported film, in bag sizes up to 15″ wide, and offers the only transverse zipper applicator that is integrated into the film cage.

VFFS Baggers with Ultrasonic Sealing

VFFS Baggers with Ultrasonic sealing help improve OEE by creating an airtight seal, which significantly reduces leakers and rejects, and offers savings on film, material, and labor. This cold sealing technology also provides energy savings and other benefits, and is ideal for various markets, including cheese, confectionery, leafy produce, liquids, powders, and seafood.

 

Ultrasonic cross seal and back seal options are available on several Triangle VFFS Baggers.  For added flexibility, it is possible to easily switch between Ultrasonic cross seal and traditional heat seal on the same bagging machine!

Machine integration projects

Integrating mechanically and electronically several packaging machinery is certainly an expertise not mastered by all OEMs.  In addition to tight deadlines and management of multiple machine projects at the same time, you need to have space and staff available to deliver a successful project.  Unless it is something simple that you feel comfortable doing, it may be a good idea to leave it to professionals.

Form-Fill-Seal Baggers from Tubular Reel

The use of tubular plastic instead of pre-made bags offers a notable economic advantage for the customer, since it reduces manpower requirements and ensures continuous plant use. Moreover, the tubular plastic costs less than pre-made bags, so that the purchase cost of the machinery is recovered in just a short time.

 

CONTINUA, FFS-E and FFS FORZA are CONCETTI‘s innovative fully automatic bagging systems that forms, fills and seals bags made from a reel of tubular thermoplastic material.  Typical bagging applications for Form-Fill-Seal Baggers for large PE bags are bagging of wood pellets, bagging of sugar and bagging of premix.

Replacement Parts for sealing, cutting & punching

Lako’s range of seal jaws, crimpers, knives, anvils, hole punches, fin wheels, formers, and product carriers integrate with virtually all packaging  machinery.  See Lako Tools’ product range.

 

Their proprietary design, materials, and surface treatments ensure lasting, reliable performance, so our products can perform more than 3X longer than competitors. We bring the same quality to a range of head assemblies and retro-fits for low-cost upgrades in flexibility and efficiency.

Bagging of dry mortars and cement-based products

Thanks to Concetti, it is now possible to change from pre-made valve bags to PE bags obtained from a tubular reel, preventing batches to suffer any leakage and ensuring a cleaner and healthier environment for the operators, while still ensuring a nicely pillow-shaped bag and a very stable pallet.

 

Special auger feeding system, produced with a higher gauge metal and anti-abrasive coating, will guarantee a longer durability and effectiveness to pack in bags products like cement, little stones, gravel and sand.   Those products are fed with one or two net weighers (NET/CC) and from there into the bag-holder of our Continua FFS machine.

Premade Stand-up Pouch

Without any doubt, the stand-up pouch is becoming one of the most popular packaging on the market today.  Adopted by large and small food processors, it offers high-impact graphics and scores very well has a low carbon footprint packaging.

 

LEEPACK / PSG LEE, Licensed to sell under the PPi Technologies GROUP Banner, is a clear market leader in North America for pre-made pouch fill/seal machinery, especially in the dry food segment.  The PSG LEE pre-made pouch fill/seal bagger is available as in standard (dry spec) configuration for most dry products applications or as washdown as option with separate electrical cabinet or as dry specification.

 

The average operating speed of a simplex pre-formed pouch bagger will vary between 35 to 50 pouches per minute, depending on product to be filled and pouch size.  If your need is to run faster speed, but without going to a Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal, a Duplex PSG LEE pouch filler/sealer will reach speed of up to 100 pouches per minute.

Stand-up Pouch made from rollstock

The stand-up pouch (also called Doypack or Deltapack) is a very popular form of packaging.  It is a handy, yet stable packaging solution with which a larger filling capacity can be achieved than in pillow pouches with the same external dimensions.

 

While the pre-made pouches are great for frequent size changeovers, the benefits of going to a Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal Bagger or Vertical Form-Fill-Seal Bagger to make the pouches from rollstock before filling is very interesting when volumes are high and changeovers limited.  A wide variety of size, styles and shapes of pouches can be made and filled on Vertical FFS Baggers for Stand-up pouches made by Triangle Package Machinery or Horizontal FFS Baggers made by SN Pouch-Pack Technology.

Open Mouth Bags

Pre-made Open-mouth bags are typically found in industry such as ingredients (sugar, flour), pet food, chemical and construction products industries.   Open-mouth bags vary in size from 0.5kg to 50kg and can be made of paper or laminated plastics.  Open-mouth bags can be closed by sewing machines, hot melt adhesive, tape or heat-seal.

 

Concetti Group of Italy has a complete range of open-mouth bagging machines for different size bags, as well as scales, bag handling systems and palletizers for bags.  Open-mouth bagger Model IGF 600, from IGF-Series Multifunction open-mouth bagging machines, offers performance in very small footprint for all kink of products like flour, grain, cereal and seeds.

High Speed Open Mouth Bags & FFS Combo

If flexibility and high speed are required to stay competitive, the STARPACK® High speed bagging system by the Concetti Group could be your solution.

 

Depending on configuration, the STARPACK® can run open-mouth bags at speeds of 1200 bags/hour or 1600 bags/hour.  The range handled by this open-mouth bagger is 10kg to 50kg and bag material can be pretty much any paper, plastic or laminated bags.  What makes this open-mouth bagger unique it the possibility to add a FFS Module, so the machine makes it own bags from rollstock.

 

Concetti Group of Italy has a complete range of open-mouth bagging machines for different size bags, as well as scales, bag handling systems and palletizers for bags.  Also available for slower speed, open-mouth bagger Model IGF 600, from IGF-Series Multifunction open-mouth bagging machines, offers performance in very small footprint for all kink of products like flour, grain, cereal and seeds.

Corner Spout stand-up pouch

Corner spout (or corner fitment) pouches are used for various liquids products such as edible oil, yogurt, sauce, honey, soap refill and almost anything that can be poured.

 

Pre-made corner fitment pouches can be filled and sealed by a PSG LEE Pouch Bagger, where the liquid is filled through the unsealed top portion of the pouch and than sealed.

 

As an alternative, the pouches can be supplied to you pre-made, but without the fitment in place and in such case, the SN Pouch-Pack Fill-Seal machine can fill the pouc

Center Spout Stand-up Pouch

Center fitment pouches are typically used as portion pack, but with the added feature of reclosability with a screw cap.  Spouted pouches can be supplied with the center fitment in place, but without the cap, in which case the IPN Filler/Capper would fill through the fitment and than apply the cap in a similar way a classic capping machine would do.

 

As an alternative, the pouches can be supplied to you pre-made, but without the fitment in place and in such case, the SN Pouch-Pack Fill-Seal machine can fill the pouches through the top, and than place and weld the fitment in place.  Finally, the center fitment pouches can be formed from rollstock, filled and fitment placed and welded by model LMS 120 by SN Pouch Pack Technology.

Pre-made Pouch Labeler

Pre-made pouches are popular with big and small manufacturers, and used for multiple SKUs across all product categories.  For smaller runs, seasonal products or for customers with tons of product variety, pouch labeling is a good solution.

 

The Pouch Labeler from Aesus Packaging Systems is easy to adjust and will apply pressure-sensitive labels to the most common size of stand-up pouches used on the market.

Validation

Big bag filling systems

The Concetti Group’s broad range of products includes weighing and filling systems for Big Bag (FIBCs/Jumbo bags ranging from 500 to 1500 kg). The systems are distinguished by their high-precision weighing and their capacity to handle any type of product: powders, pellets, chemicals, food products, etc.

The characteristics of the product will essentially determine the type of feed system, which can be gravity, belt or screw types.

The operator will be responsible solely for setting the empty Big Bag in the filling position.

IP67 Washdown Combination Scale

Among the various brands and styles of scales, the Omega Series by Yamato offers great performance and is perfect to be integrated with our range of baggers and cup filling machines.
