RPM Series

The Bartelt® RPM Series are horizontal form/fill/seal machines featuring double pouch clamps that enable the running of heavier fill weights and larger pouch sizes.

This space saving rotary turret machine series achieves speeds up to 60 cycles per minute depending on product and model. Optional duplex configurations yield to 110-120 pouches per minute.

This model is an excellent choice for producing sachets, gusseted bags and stand-up pouches.
