Universal Pack offers a comprehensive range of drink powder stick pack and sachet packaging machines and cartoning lines.

Packaging drink powder in stick packs and sachets guarantees several advantages, such as convenience, portability, and cost-effectiveness. However, there are also some challenges associated with this type of packaging and product.

The challenges of packaging drink powder in stick packs and sachets

While convenience and portion control are key factors for stick packs and sachets, the packaging process presents unique challenges.

With reference to the hygroscopic nature of the drink powders, packaging materials should protect the product from moisture. For this reason, moisture-proof laminates are essential to prevent this.
Moreover, packaging materials with good barrier against light and oxygen are crucial. Both light and oxygen can affect taste of the drink powder dosed inside the sachets and stick packs.

With reference to filling and sealing process, there are some key points to highlight when designing a packaging machine.
Powders can have variable flow properties. For this reason, we analyze every drink powder to highlight their physical characteristics, in order to optimize machine design and dosing system.
In addition, the scientific study of the laminate is vital to design the most efficient sealing unit according to its physical characteristics. Strong seals are crucial to prevent leaks and ensure product integrity.

To conclude, there are several issues to consider for the packaging of drink powder in sachets and sticks. Laminate characteristics, dosing system and sealing technologies are key points before and during machine design. An optimized design of the sachet or stick pack machine can ensure product quality, convenience and sustainability.
