Automatic vertical packaging machines for all needs: since 50 years we are bringing innovation to the world of single-dose packaging, producing high-performance automatic vertical bagging machines which we can adjust to the costumer’s specific needs. Besides single-serve packaging machines, our primary and secondary products line can satisfy the most peculiar packaging needs, producing 4 side heat-sealed bags, shaped sachets, stick-packs and hollow-punch cases. We are always in absolute control of the situation, as design, production and assembly of each packaging machine take place in our company.

Our packaging machines are designed and manufactured entirely by us, therefore we are able to produce customised machines, packaging lines and solutions for every commodity sector. In addition, it is possible to edit operational parameters via touch-screen display, with no need for mechanical intervention. Overall, all the operating parameters are electronically managed and thus they can be edited without interrupting the production phase. Furthermore, all our automatic vertical packaging machines were designed and tested to work 24/7.

Every year we invest in research and development in the field of single-dose packaging, so that our automatic vertical packaging machines can become even more trustworthy and efficient. This has allowed us to manufacture productive machines which remain excellent even after 30 years of use. Their reliability is guaranteed by our company’s factory, which produces over the 80% of the machines’ components, and strict quality control. In order to adapt the production of automatic vertical packaging machines to the market needs, we implement power supply groups to allow the existing packaging system to elaborate complementary products.
