Packaging milk powder can be a complex process if not handled correctly.

If you are a milk powder producer and are looking for a milk powder packaging system, you are in the right place!Powdered milkis a manufactured dairy product obtained by evaporating milk to dryness. The product must have the longest possible shelf life and the bags must be clean after the packaging process (no product residue on the bag).
Thanks to the use of innovative technologies, all the machines we propose are designed to guaranteethat the milk powder is perfectly packed.

The parts in contact with the product are made of stainless steel AISI 304 to maintain the highest hygiene standards and avoid contamination. In addition to the parts in contact with the product, the entire machines can also be made of stainless steel.

The types of bags most commonly used are:Preformed pouches for open mouthorTaskermade from a flat roll of film. When we talk about preformed bags, paper bags with an inner PE lining are mostly used for milk powder. These materials are used for bags of 10 kg and above.

There are several options that can be added to get the perfect result:

In the process of filling the bag, a venting probe can be added to reduce the volume of the product.

To achieve a better shape of the bag, the top of the bag can be compressed with a special device.

To avoid product residues in the closing phase, we use a device to clean the edges of the bag. The bags are then closed and sewn.

It can be doublestep closure: heat sealing for inner and outer paper bag, with plain stitching, through stitching of crepe paper; sewing through duct tape, topstitching and topstitching are also widely used.

Vertical packaging machine VFFS

For smaller bags, up to 5 kg of PE-coated aluminum foil is usually produced using a vertical wrapping machine (VFFS) from a roll of film. The vertical packaging machine takes care of shaping, filling and sealing the pillow bags.

We guarantee maximum attention to tightness, hygiene and containment of dust dispersion during the bagging phase.

Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) for milk powder

As you may know, food manufacturers are always happy to find natural ways to extend the shelf life of their products.

ABLE TO: Modified atmosphere packaging is the most commonly used method to achieve this result in the milk powder industry. This process consists of replacing the oxygen inside the package with a mixture of gases, which increases the shelf life of the product. The gasification process reduces the amount of air inside the bag before the bagging stage. After the product is bagged, there is a post-gas phase.

Solutions for secondary packaging of milk powder

Small format bags can be grouped into bundles, one of which is oursshrink wrap machine. Or they can be packed in boxes with aBox packing machinewhich can be equipped with a pick & place system.

What about palletizing?

The palletizing process can be performed using a Cartesian or layered palletizing machine, depending on the required speed and type of bags.

You can also customize this process with an automatic hopper and feeder for empty pallets and an applicator for cardboard sheets.

Machines for wrapping pallets

Finally, pallet wrapping machines are used to protect pallets from weather and shock. We offer automatic and semi-automatic machines for wrapping pallets, according to customers' needs in terms of speed and space availability. To complete the wrapping process, we also offer a unit for top plates and cover systems.
