K-Series Horizontal Form, Fill & Seal Pouching Machine

The Bartelt® K-Series is a servo driven horizontal form, fill and seal pouching machine. This model provides high precision, maximum flexibility, convenience, while the pre-programmed recipe settings provide repeatable and reliable product and size changeover.

The dual bag clamp design of the K-200 and K-260 models provide an excellent choice for producing heavier weight pouches.

Depending on product and configurations, the K-series machines can achieve speeds up to 100 cycles per minute.

  • The Bartelt® K-Series pouching machine produces flexible pouches from roll stock
  • Flat sheet from roll stock is formed into either flat or gusset pouches in the forming section of the machine
  • Pouches are heat sealed using temperature-controlled seal bars
  • Preheat and/or cooling may be required based on film characteristics and machine speed
  • Film is advanced through the bag making section in photo-registration via the servo feed roll system
  • Registered pouches are cut and transferred into the dual clamping system for filling and closing via the knife/transfer system
  • A pouch detection system is used to ensure that pouches are in position for filling to minimize product loss
  • Pouches are opened with a servo-controlled opening and closing system (pucker) and via vacuum with air assist
  • Product is fed with a product filling system.
  • Filled pouches are transferred to the top seal area where they are closed and sealed.
