How The VFFS Machine Has Changed Retail Packaging

While we spend most of our time looking forward, occasionally it helps to understand the origin of today's VFFS (vertical form fill seal machine) and the consistent role that Rovema has played in the drive to improve CPG bagging. Some of our key milestones include:

  • 1959 - First VFFS with first belt drive film transport system
  • 1961 - First Bag-in-Box cartoning integrated with vertical bagger
  • 1986 - First continuous motion vertical bagger with rotating cross seal jaws
  • 1991 - Introduced Stabilo Seal® bag in response to environmental source reduction requests
  • 1996 - First 12 axis servo drive with separate electronic units
  • 2003 - First bagger with electronic product detection (Sense and Seal®) and seal pressure controlled through linear drives
  • 2014 - First dual axis servo bagger with variable force seal drives (Premium Seal®) enhances ability to seal wide range of materials

A list of historic firsts isn't what makes us the best today, or the best VFFS machine for your packaging requirements. It's our job today and tomorrow to continue proving it - and our range of solutions above illustrates our current capability. But it's good to know the foundation that today's technology is firmly built upon!


Maximizing Operational Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) for Your Vertical Form Fill Seal Machine

It's a critically important topic across manufacturing industries - and it's one that we're committed to fostering dialog around.

As an organization, we stand behind our "no end of life" principle. What does this mean?

We reject the industry mindset that after over the decades of running your machinery that it's expected that you'll see an incremental drop in speed and quality.

This is unacceptable to us so if you're experiencing any drop in efficiency, know that for our customers, we're committed to restoring it.
