K-TRAK Fill and Seal

The Bartelt® K-TRAK FS is a state-of-the-art horizontal fill-seal (FS) machine that integrates the latest magnetic linear technology. The K-TRAK is synonymous with flexibility, reliability and rapid changeover times.

Maximum flexibility is provided by independently controlled double pouch clamps utilizing magnetic linear motion control.

The K-TRAK Fill-Seal Pouching machine is designed for both simplex and duplex configurations.

Maximum speed is 100 ppm for 320mm wide pouches in duplex configuration.
