VFFS Machine and Multihead Weigher Troubleshooting Webinar Co-hosted by Rovema and Multipond

On Friday, February 19, 2021, ROVEMA North America Inc. to co-host a free coaching session with ROVEMA Latinoamérica S.A. and MULTIPOND America, Inc to give attendees tips and tricks on multihead weighers and VFFS machines. 

Norcross, GA -  It is often mistakenly assumed that the biggest driver of production speed is how fast a VFFS or other machine's seal jaws can cycle, sealing each package. But, if given some personal experience managing the packaging end of a food production line, one will quickly come to understand that, while overall production speed can be limited by the maximum speed spec'd out for a packaging machine, 90% of the time, that isn't the case.

When discussing high speed packaging operations, technology has brought this space to a point that is highly nuanced, depending on the needs of the packaged products. For free-flowing products packaged vertically, the product charges, which are the individual doses that drop from the filling component, to the filling tube, to the bagging machine, speeds are so high that multiple charges are travelling through the filling tube at the same time.

Because of this method, the following product tendencies or characteristics have potentially detrimental effects on the effective production speed of a line:

  • Product String Out where the product begins to spread out while falling 
  • Product Bridging where the product may get hung up in the filling tube, whether it is too sticky or is a unique shape
  • Product swirling, where the product spins inside the filling component, causing delays in making it to the filling tube itself.

On February 19th at 11a.m. EST/ 8 a.m. PST, technical experts from ROVEMA North America, Inc., ROVEMA Latinoamérica S.A. and MULTIPOND America, Inc. are coming together unpack best practices for managing these charges from a multihead weigher to a VFFS machine and exchanging stories from each of their times in the service field, helping their respective customers. 

This is an excellent event for anyone in a plant engineering or maintenance role that wants to deepen their knowledge around troubleshooting multihead weighers and vffs machines. This info is also valuable for capital equipment buyers that want to gain a deeper understanding of specific packaging machine  technologies and how they enable efficient packaging of difficult products.
