Packaging liquids has always been a challenge. Beverages, milk, water, juice, flavoured milk, yogurt, liquor, wine…there’s an ever-growing list of products out there that require safe and hygienic flexible packaging with crucial seal integrity.

Pillow pouch is a simple, reliable and cost effective packaging solution and most frequently used form of pouch readily available in the market. Increasing demand from dairy industries for packing numerous products including curd, sauces, milk, yoghurt and water will provide a positive thrust on the liquid pouch packaging market in years to come.

Consumers today want lighter packaging. On-the-go convenience. Sustainable packaging that can be recycled. Nichrome meets many of these requirements with its liquid pouch packaging solution: Filpack CMD Alpha.

Filpack CMD Alpha

Filpack CMD Alpha is another efficient automatic packaging machine for milk and other liquids. Built substantially shorter than conventional machines, this VFFS packaging machine also occupies less floor space as no side opening is required.

The impulse seal system is controlled through solid state control technology, and there is a specially designed film roll unwinding mechanism for smooth bag pulling.
