Feb. 21, 2022

      When you decide to use an automatic packing machine, no matter for liquid, solid, or granular. There are two based option you’ll face: Premade Pouch Packing Machine or Form Fill Seal Machine.

    Now let’s make some basic explanation and comparison on these two machines before you make finally choice.


1. Finished Packing Bag Effect


    No doubt, from aspect of packing effect, Premade Pouch Packing Machine is far better than Form Fill Seal Machine does. As can be seen from below finished bag picture:

    Premade Pouch allows your brand and product stands out in appearance and the user can recognize it much easier. Plus it looks higher-ranking, also simpler of use, like spout pouch, stand up pouch with or without zipper. If your company is focus on high end customer, and branding image is important for you. Then premade pouch must choose Premade Pouch Packing Machine.


    Even for pillow bag, gusset bag etc. Premade Pouch Packing Machine can handle and it makes the bag edge more neat and beautiful.


    In a word, Premade Bag packing machine can pack more bag styles than Form Film Seal machine do. Also packing bag effect is much better. 


2. Initial Invest Cost

    Cost is always one of the most important factor no matter when and where the customer come from.

Although total cost could be involved during the entire packing process. The price for Premade Pouch Packing Machine apparently much higher than that of Form Fill Seal Machine. No matter the main machine or after-sales maintenance cost.


    And for the packing material, the unit cost for the Premade Pouch will be higher then Form Film Seal machine bags. This could be very easy to understand. Premade Pouch need more working processes and more complicated production technology.

For form film Seal machine, it use film Roll making bags. This make it more flexible for changing bag size. When you keep same bag width, the same Film Rolls can make many different bag length


    If you are starting a new business and have very tight budget, Form Film Seal machine can be a safer and more cost effective option to get start.



3. Daily Production Capacity


    Another key fator you are concerned maybe the daily production capacity for each machine.

    When it comes to speed, actually both Premade Pouch Packing Machine and Form Fill Seal Machine have been evolved in the market for over decades. And current high-speed model could reach 60-100bags per min even more.


    Indeed the total speed is more related with your materials feature and finally determined by weighing equipment you choose. So generally, speed has no big difference if dosing system is same.


    But sometime the bag style could effect the speed, the complex premade pouch could slow down the packing speed because they may require more working steps to complete.


    Finally, our suggestion is that you can use different packaging equipment according to the stage of your company and the positioning of the product to the end users, or you can use both kinds of packaging at the same time, so that you can cover more target users from different levels.  To increase market share.
