Experience with Over 8,000+ machines Globally - With installations for your industry & product

Every product is different. Some clump while others weigh and fill easily. Others have particularly challenging merchandising and shelf-life requirements. And some are really pretty easy for any vertical bagger...until consistent high-speed output and up time become critical.

As machine builders we love to brag about all the details we obsess over - but the sealed bearings we use are no more important to your specific application than the size of drives and availability of Rockwell Allen Bradley PLCs.

Your product is your focus - it should be your machine builder's too!

And we've almost certainly worked with it before. Click on any of these common products/industries for insight into our expertise.

Our goal is to be an industry resource that you can turn to for insights on how to make vertical bagging the most efficient, highest return part of your manufacturing operation besides the product itself. Go ahead - contact us and test us on this!

vertical form fill seal (vffs) for coffee

Rovema V/F/F/S solutions for Coffee Roasters

The art and science of a great coffee business don't end with the roasting cycle - both food service and retail markets are increasingly demanding of functional and merchandising features that Rovema routinely builds into machines.

  • auger filler and bagger from a single source - designed, manufactured and tested under the same roof, not just a common master brand
  • integrated auger and bagger controls
  • consistent head pressure in auger for repeatable and accurate package weights with the Rovema horizontal feed screw
  • AromaPerm(tm) Gas Flush to reduce residual O2 levels to  than 1% and reliable hermetic seals to keep it there with extended shelf-life

Commercial / Institutional Food Service is growing rapidly as more roasters shift capacity from fickle retail markets to high volume branded, co-packed and private label packaging of urn size and fractional packs. Much more than simple pillow bags, this business segment requires high speed, consistent accuracy of weight and reliable hermetic seals. Need a degassing coupon valve? Our single source approach extends beyond the augur and bagger to include our own proven integrated solution.

Retail demands all the same performance criteria AND aesthetics & convenience. Tin tie reclosable and Peel seal capability are typical options on our SBS system for both ground and whole bean coffee. And marketers love the full billboard they get on the package back with our Stabilo bag which incorporates an optional true offset vertical seal. As with food service packages, Rovema offers a proven degassing solution for integrated button valve placement on retail packs as well.

Accurately weighed and hermetically sealed in the bag, your coffee can transfer seamlessly to our range of secondary packaging solutions including tray and case packing.

Find out why many of the world's leading coffee manufacturers like Goodson Brothers and Euro Coffee (and others whose names you know well but which we're not allowed to share) have selected Rovema for packaging to cover the no mans land between roasting and brewing.

vertical form fill seal (vffs) for candy

Rovema V/F/F/S solutions for Candy & Sweets Packaging

Rovema has over 50 years of experience packaging candy and an innovation leader. These can be packed into simple pillow bags or fancy stand up bags with special features. The solution can be a stand alone bagging machine or a complete automatic packaging line.

When it comes to fancy bags, the Stabilo® bag developed by Rovema in 1991 is an industry standard. Specific options include a true-offset seal which yields full panels on all 4 sides of the bag. Excellent for graphics. The true offset seal also aids in bag stand up since it reduces the multple layers in the bottom seal of a center back seal which can be troublesome in adhieving a stand up bag for smaller lighweight bags.

Other special bag styles include doy-style, Ropack, and Flexcan.

Factors to consider include product damage, fines, stickiness, bag opening size, reclosure among other things.

The new BVC series bag making technology provides advanced features that increase the performance and efficiency of automatic candy packaging. The BVC is a 2-axis servo driven machine capable of operating at speeds in excess of 240/min. Springs have been eliminated from the jaws meaning precise control over jaw position. This means excellent product in jaw detection even at the highest of rates which reduces product in seal and other quality control issues. Another feature of the BVC is Premium Seal ® which provides variable pressure over the course of once bag making cycle. This results in better performance in handling fragile films and overall better seal performance for challenging film structures. The BVC also is the first bag maker to uses servo gusseting which gives much higher performance when creating gusseted bags especially at higher speeds and with lighter gauge films. Refer to separate information here [link] for complete details on the BVC.

Machine versatility is key with a Rovema solution. This results in producing various bag styles on the same machine with efficient and repeatable changeover.

The SBS machine solution takes bag making to another level by delivering low fill drop heights, extreme flat bottom bags, and additional bag features such as tin tie, gather + clip, fold over and tape over 30 such bag top styles available.

Dosing is primarily accomplished with weigher or cup doser. The former generally gives greater accuracy and the latter greater speed. The right solution is determined by evaluating output versus giveaway cost along with the other considerations mentioned above.

With either dosing solution Rovema provides turnkey solution. We can offer direct mount weighers requiring no mezzanine (reduced clutter and better hygiene) and one common control panel for both weigher and bag maker.

For cup dosing solution, Rovema is the manufacter of both doser and bag maker providing a single source solution again integrated with direct mount and common (one) control panel interface.

Opening and reclosuer is a consideration. Bags can be produced with a simple tear notch for ease of opening. Zipper is common. There are various types including a velcro type. Other reclosures include tin-tie (less common), tape (dust is a concern).

In addition to dosing and bag making, Rovema manufactures secondary automatic packaging machinery. We often deliver complete automatic turnkey packaging lines for dosing, bag making, coding, inspection, cartoning and casing. The turnkey solution is engineered and built in one facility with a common workforce. This minimizes complication and risk for the tunkey solution.

Allen Bradley or Industrial PC based control - with either there are no proprietary control components. All OEM control components.

Highest levels of OEE are achieved due to build quality and resulting machine performance, experience and engineering to ensure propoer application and execution of machines, common manufacture and workforce.

vertical form fill seal (vffs) for nuts

Rovema V/F/F/S solutions for Nut Growers

Rovema has over 20 years of experience packaging nuts. These can be packed into simple pillow bags of fancy stand up bags with special features. The solution can be a stand alone bagging machine or a complete automatic packaging line.

When it comes to fancy bags, the Stabilo® bag developed by Rovema in 1991 is an industry standard.  Specific options include a true-offset seal which yields full panels on all 4 sides of the bag.  Excellent for graphics.  The true offset seal also aids in bag stand up since it reduces the multiple layers in the bottom seal of a center back seal which can be troublesome in achieving a stand up bag for smaller lightweight bags.

Factors to consider include breakage, fines, stickiness, bag opening size

The new BVC series bag making technology provides advanced features that increase the performance and efficiency of automatic nut packaging. The BVC is a 2-axis servo driven machine capable of operating at speeds in excess of 240/min.  Springs have been eliminated from the jaws meaning precise control over jaw position.  This means excellent product in jaw detection even at the highest of rates which reduces product in seal and other quality control issues. Another feature of the BVC is Premium Seal ® which provides variable pressure over the course of once bag making cycle.  This results in better performance in handling fragile films and overall better seal performance for challenging film structures.  The BVC also is the first bag maker to uses servo gusseting which gives much higher performance when creating gusseted bags especially at higher speeds and with lighter gauge films.  Refer to separate information here [link] for complete details on the BVC.

We run tube nuts which are particularly difficult due to the small bag opening. Over the past 5 years we have developed technology that has resulted in output increases of over 40%.

Dosing can be accomplished with weigher or cup doser. The former gives greater accuracy and the latter for greater speed. The right solution is determined by evaluating output versus giveaway cost.

With either dosing solution Rovema provides turnkey solution. We can offer direct mount weighers requiring no mezannine (reduced clutter and better hygiene) and one common control panel for both weigher and bag maker.

For cup dosing solution, Rovema is the manufacturer of both doser and bag maker providing a single source solution again integrated with direct mount and common (one) control panel interface.

Gas flushing is also a consideration where residual oxygen level is the primary factor.

Opening and reclosure is a consideration. Bags can be produced with a simple tear notch for ease of opening. Zipper is common. There are various types including a velcro type. Other reclosures include tin-tie (less common), tape (dust is a concern).
