This food packing/packaging machine can fill either liquid, dry, viscous  or sticky products. Built for retail type open mouth containers, its versatility allows you to fill on the same machine many different shapes ( round, square, oval) and size containers either in plastic, paperboard, aluminum, etc.

Base machine, allow you to fill and close regular or tamper evident containers.  Adding a plastic film automatic heat sealing machine (PL500) allow you, still on the same line to use sealable containers, with or without an over-cap.

Set up time take about 20 minutes.  When required, pre-adjusted tooling for a new container shape or size  can be bought for a nominal cost allowing you to introduce at will  new SKU to stay on top of the market.
