A long-standing customer of Sewtec requested our help to provide a bespoke automated solution that would pack and seal closed their tobacco products quickly for optimum preservation.
Supporting all steps of the process.
The engineering team engaged with the customer in providing a system that would support all steps of the packaging process, including the design, manufacture, and installation of a machine to create, fill and close a pouch, plus the modification and integration of two high-accuracy weighers and a weight-check metal detector. Transfer conveyors were adopted to move the filled pouches to a carton packing machine or, via a second leg, to a flow wrapping machine.
The system is a success, feeding the tobacco through a bucket conveyor system, into its pouch and sealed close, at a rate of 120 products per minute.
