Production Lines for Laminated Tubes and Tube Filling Automation


The advantages of NEW MACHINE - FFS60

  • Cuts unnecessary movements and operations
  • Tube body is formed and filled only in one position - vertical
  • Tube body is oriented only once
  • Tube body is formed on a mandrel and it is supported by the mandrel until the filling process starts Thus, very thin tubes can be made and filled without denting and OVALITY is no longer a problem for the filling machines
  • Elimination of carton boxes, storage space and transportation of the empty tubes Thus, less wastage, less risk of contamination, less expenses. Innovative and bright thinkers - this machine is for you

KOMBIS FFS60 – a highly efficient “turn-key” machine that eliminates unnecessary movements and operations

    Mechatronica SC, part of Wifag-Polytype group, has developed a new compact packaging machine called the KOMBIS FFS60. The FFS60 is designed for small and middle size clients. The KOMBIS FFS60 machine produces laminated tubes and fills them ready for dispatch and retail. FFS60 utilizes raw materials such as ABL or PBL printed laminate, plastic pre-molded shoulders and caps, and the paste product for filling. The machine incorporates the industry most highly sought after features reflecting future trends in packaging machines.

    The prototype KOMBIS FFS33 has been shown for the first time at Pack Expo, Chicago. It undergoes development based on the knowledge of Mechatronica gained from laminated tube making machines. The result is the KOMBIS FFS60. This model enhances the features of its predecessor, the FFS33, by eliminating many of the restrictions of the prototype.

    KOMBIS FFS60 utilizes a vertical body maker, which simplifies the whole construction and eliminates the need to transfer from a horizontal to a vertical position the tube body which is ready oriented for filling. The web is not pushed, but drawn and the side welding is done at immovable web. This allows use of very thin foil and betters the quality of the side seam. The orientation of the tube body is done only once which greatly lessens the waste due to wrong orientation. Another benefit for the customers is the reduction of machine dimensions. The footprint of the machine requires less space than is currently necessary for a single tube filling machine. The construction concept provides a space saving solution in addition to a very reliable machine. The footprint is 3 812mm x 3 535mm.

    KOMBIS FFS60 technology eliminates several operations which save not only production space, but saves time, storage space and transportation of empty tubes. This technology greatly lessens the risk of product contamination and waste. All these saving result in cost effective expenditures for the tube making and filling.

    Oval shapes are not longer a problem for filling as the tube body is formed on a mandrel and supported by it until the filling process starts. Thus, very thin tubes can be made and filled.

    The modular principle that is utilized in all the KOMBIS machines’ designs allows for simple and quick changeovers of tube sizes and paste product.

    The first four KOMBIS FFS60 machines have been bought by a European cosmetics manufacturer.

    KOMBIS FFS60 is a small pearl for pharmaceutical and food market.

    New versions with higher speed are planned.
