K-TRAK Form Fill and Seal

The K-TRAK FFS is a state-of-the-art horizontal form-fill-seal pouching machine that integrates the latest magnetic linear technology. It stands out for its flexibility, reliability and very fast changeover times.

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

This model is designed for both simplex and duplex configurations.

Maximum speed is 150 ppm in duplex mode.
