How to choose snacks packing machine?
Trends in snack food development
Snacks are foods corresponding to “staple food” and non-essential consumer goods purchased on impulse, with multiple attributes such as social, entertainment, and leisure. With the accelerated pace of consumption upgrading, snack consumption has become a part of life, which has accelerated the development of the snack industry.
Driven by diversified, multi-scene, high-quality, and high-frequency consumer demands, both traditional manufacturing companies and vertically integrated brand specialty retailers need to pay attention to the packaging of products when they are finally presented to consumers. High-quality personalized packaging can attract more consumers to buy. The way of packaging is also a key point that cannot be ignored.
The traditional manual packaging method is inefficient, and there are uncontrollable factors of food safety in direct contact with people. Using mechanical packaging can not only improve efficiency, but also reduce the contact between packaging and people, providing a safe food environment for food production and packaging.
So how do we choose the suitable packing machine for snack products?
First, let’s take a look at the common types of snacks.
2. Sweets (including chocolate, candy, etc)
3. Nuts (including dried fruits, melon seeds, etc.)
4. Puffed food (potato chips, popcorn, shrimp chips, etc.)
5. Biscuit, cookies, cake and bread
These snacks are in the form of granules, short strips or blocks. The styles of the products are different, and the matching equipment is also different. This article introduces the packaging equipment suitable for packaging different snacks according to different measurement methods.
First of all, we need to determine the style of the packaging bag. Generally, we have the type of roll film bag and prefabricated bag. Today, we will talk about the type of roll film bag type packaging equipment.
1. Semi automatic snacks packaging machine
The product is manually weighed, then placed in the chain bucket, and then automatically filled and heat-sealed.
Advantages: The equipment is relatively simple, the cost is low, and it is suitable for the packaging of various products.
Disadvantages: need to manually measure product weight, low efficiency.
2. Automatic snacks packaging machine combined with volumetric cups
It uses a quantitative measuring cup to measure the material. When filling, the material falls freely into the measuring cup by its own weight. The scraper scrapes off the excess material in the measuring cup, and then fills the material in the measuring cup into the packaging container under the action of its own weight. middle.
It is suitable for filling of small granules, fragments and powders with good flow properties and uniformity. Examples include seeds, popcorn, nuts, oatmeal, and more.
- The mechanical structure is simple and easy to operate.
- The price of the complete set of packaging equipment is lower and the cost performance is relatively high.
- The metering speed is fast and the productivity is high.
- The measuring cup can be changed and adjusted, suitable for packaging products of different specifications and types, and the use of products is diversified.
- The accuracy is lower than that of electronic scales.
- It takes time to change the measuring cup.
Therefore, if our budget is low, the packaging products are of a single type, and the packaging specifications are relatively fixed, a packaging machine with a measuring cup mechanism will be the best choice.
3. Multi head snack food packaging machine
According to the high-precision digital sensor measurement on the electronic scale, the appropriate combination is instantly selected from the rich combination through CPU calculation, and then the bag making, sealing, packaging, and printing date are completed at one time. , The working environment is clean and the noise is small.
Suitable for jelly, fruit, large shell nuts, melon seeds, peanuts, nuts, almonds, grapes, candy, pistachios, potato chips, shrimp strips, and other granules, puffing, cereal bags, soy milk powder, coffee bags and other irregular or small bags quantitative packaging.
- High-precision digital sensor to achieve high-speed and accurate weighing.
- It can store 100 sets of parameter settings to meet various material requirements, and it is convenient to extract setting data and reduce the time for resetting.
- The combination of high precision and high speed, the combination is instantly selected from the rich combination through CPU calculation, and the measurement and packaging speed are fast.
- The whole process reduces manual contact with food, which is efficient and safe.
- high cost and requirements for site size.
