Print/form/fill/seal Machine for Sachets

V-Shapes, an innovative supplier of convenient, hygienic, and sustainable single-dose packaging equipment, made its debut at PACK EXPO by showing its unique AlphaFlex print, form, fill, and seal solution.

V Shapes

This compact, professional-grade liquid dosing and delivery system from V-Shapes features high-quality synchronized digital printing on both sides of the sachets.

Notable is that AlphaFlex,which becomes commercially viable later this year, is powered by Memjet’s DuraFlex® digital printing technology and ColorGATE Packaging Productionserver, a modular solution for managing color and data throughout the whole package production chain. The V-Shapes AlphaFlex dosing and delivery technology makes it possible for vertical integration of high-volume production of the patented V-Shapes single-dose sachets, eliminating the need to outsource printing and giving complete manufacturing control back to the brand owners and co-packers.

V-Shapes says that this revolutionary filling/converting machine was made possible through a variety of important partnerships, including Memjet, Siemens, and SIHL, as well as the talented V-Shapes engineering team. It was no small challenge to develop synchronized feeds and professional quality printing of the patented single-dose sachets.

The AlphaFlex features integrated in-line printing into the V-Shapes six-lane ALPHA machine, enabling packaging converters/fillers to accomplish the complete manufacturing process of V-Shapes’ unique single-dose sachets under one roof with a compact footprint and full color branding capabilities--in line, on demand, and with the industry’s highest quality. In the AlphaFlex configuration, the printing module prints a single side of the single-dose sachets inline, synchronized with each other, and precisely married for die cutting, filling and sealing.
