Pouching System Designed Specifically for Single-Serve Markets

The Bartelt IM poucher is the world's most widely used horizontal form-fill-seal-poucher. Well over 4000 of these machines are used today worldwide.

Constructed with heavy-duty materials, this intermittent drive pouching machine has a simple versatile design that performs with precision.

Designed specifically for the needs of single-serve markets, this pouching system handles a wide range of pouch sizes and styes, with a performance rate up to 100 cycles per minute.

Features such as servo main drive and a touch screen operator panel add to efficiency and ease of operation, and it can run smaller side seals, saving on material. A single leading-edge bag clamp design maximizes pouch opening for filling.

Depending on requirements, producers can choose from two configurations and a variety of index pitch models. The Standard IM configuration, which is available in 6", 7", 8” and 9" index pitch models, has a mechanical performance rate of up to 120 cycles per minute and produces pouch sizes from 2"W x 2"H to 7.75"W x 9.5"H. The IM Focus is available in 7" and 9" index pitch models and produces the same pouch sizes.

The Bartelt IM 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
Servo driven feed-roll is used in conjunction with photo registration sensors to produce pouches of desired width, and cut with a mechanical knife
The pouches are held on spring–loaded clamps and indexed through the filling section
A pouch detection system is used to ensure that pouches are in position for filling to minimize product loss
The filled pouch is indexed to the top seal area where it is closed and sealed
The completed pouch is then removed from the clamps and transferred to a discharge system
