American Italian Pasta Co.: Vf/f/s on a pasta packaging lineFilm is fed to the vf/f/s machine from Triangle from a floor-level unwind stand. Bags as small as 8 oz or as large as 10 lb are filled on the machine.
Belts on either side of the forming tube move continuously to draw film through the machine on a continuous-motion basis. Sealing jaws on the bagger move along with the film in a downward motion and then stroke back up to close on the next bag. This makes it possible for the film to move continuously rather than on an intermittent-motion basis.
