Automated powder packing machines help manufacturers meet current demands and keep up with intense competition. Nichrome offers powder packaging machines that involve packaging solutions for packing food & pharma/nutritional powder, detergent, and chemical products in India, Kenya, and other countries.

Intro to Powder Packaging Machines

Typically, a detergent packaging machine  is used to make bags/pouches for powder products, weigh powder for filling, fill powder into bags/containers, seal bags/containers and count the number of packaged bags/containers.

Automated powder packing machines improve cost-effectiveness, efficiency, brand value, shelf life, and offer increased reliability and functionality. There are certain types of powder packing machines categorized based on the design, manufacture, and application.

Broadly, a powder packing machine has a control mechanism, driving mechanism, dosing system, loading system, conveyor belt, dusting system and discharge system.

Types of Powder Packaging

There are different types of powder packaging solutions depending on the content (powder) that is being packaged. There are powder filling machines for chilli powder, powder sachet, spice powder, pouch filling machines, and milk powder packing machines.

Nichrome VFFS Series

Vertical Form Fill Sealing Machine (VFFS) is a type of automated assembly-line powder packaging system, commonly used for packing powder products. The typical machine is equipped with a continuous flat roll of plastic film which can make bags from packaging materials. The machine can automatically finish the whole process of bag forming, weighing, filling, sealing, cutting, and counting.

Nichrome’s Multilane Stickpack with Multi Head Servo Auger Filler is ideal for producers supplying non-free flowing powders such as milk powders, coffee powder, tea/coffee premixes for food chains, travel, and hospitality industries.

Nichrome’s Stickpack series offers unmatched efficiency. Nichrome’s Multilane Stickpack with Servo Auger Filler is a stick pack pouch packaging machine equipped with a CE certified PLC controller that makes it easy to operate and provides the necessary flexibility for product and format changes while maintaining the efficiency of the process.

Nichrome HFFS Series

Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal (HFFS) is equipment that both produces a pouch from roll stock film and spout and cap assemblies and fills it in the same operation.

The film or laminate travels through the machine in a horizontal direction. This process accounts for all parts of manufacturing a complete pouch product, from film unwinding, pouch forming, filling, and sealing. 

A benefit of Nichrome HFFS machine is that it optimizes the total cost of ownership and allows for more flexibility in sizes and shapes in production. It also provides the manufacturer with total control of their packaging process.

Nichrome HFFS machines are PLC based with touch screen interface. The compact and versatile design offers both single and perforated chain of pouches with quick and easy changeover. Well-designed duplex modules are available for higher outputs.

Kenya Packaging Market

Presently, raw materials for packaging in Kenya are almost entirely dependent on imports. This is due to the post-harvest losses caused by insufficient packaging and backward processing technology in East African countries are as high as 30%, and up to 70% of fruits and vegetables are wasted.

The increase in per capita income in Kenya has led to an increase in packaged foods and fast-moving consumer goods. East Africa’s packaging industry will grow substantially in the next few years.

According to reports, one-third of the 1.2 billion people in Africa are middle-class consumers. Africa also has the youngest population group on all continents. In the next few years, the market level in the region is expected to increase fourfold.
