Features on Bartelt equipment include capabilities to package large, stand-up pouches at high speeds. Bartelt works with a wide range of product applications, including product that generates excessive dust. Our machinery has dust control systems to keep product from getting where it shouldn’t be, like in other sections of the machine or in the top seal.

To pack snack pouches, the MAG Series is ideal. This horizontal form fill seal machine features magnetic linear motion technology, which allows for ultimate flexibility and control during the packaging process.

Maximum flexibility is achieved with pre-programmed recipe settings, allowing repeatable and reliable product and size changeover. Used for snacks with heavier weight pouches, the servo driven K-Series is reliable and efficient.
