Stand-up Pouch Machine for Viscous & Liquids

Pouches (or Doypacks) have been gaining in popularity in the packaging world. Their convenience is particularly appreciated due to lower material consumption, ease of customization, wide room for graphics, ease of transportation, durability, as compared to other types of packaging. They are suitable for several applications thanks to their stand up feature and may come with spouts to facilitate pouring.

Universal Pack designs and builds a wide range of custom-built premade pouch packaging machines. Specifically, our horizontal intermittent-motion stand up pouch machines can handle all kinds of liquid and viscous products with high dosing accuracy thanks to our piston pump dosing system.

Which dosing systems are suitable for packaging viscous & liquids?

Piston pump guarantees high flexibility with micrometrical adjustment of the dose. This characteristic results in the wide range of product that piston pump can dose, such as viscous, pasty and non-free flowing liquids. We install the pump on an independent pedestal to make its displacement to an appropriate cleaning area easier. Moreover, we can provide heated pistons cylinders and heated pipes to avoid the solidification of the product during machine stop.

Contrary to flowmeter dosing system, piston pump dosing solution guarantees not only higher flexibility, but also better system precision and higher work speed. Moreover, piston pump is a user friendly  volumetric dosing system: e.g. users need only to set a parameter when the density of the product changes.

Our pouch machines for viscous and liquids guarantee the most reliable and accurate dosing and the highest production quality. Moreover, our user-friendly and modular pouch machines allow our customers to reduce downtime and fulfill their increasingly high production demands.

Universal Pack pouch machines are suitable for a wide range of doses and packaging styles. For example, we can dose from just few grams or milliliters up to kilos or liters of viscous, pasty and non-free flowing liquids in a pouch, the dimensions and style of which vary depending on your marketing goals, nature of the products and production requirements.


Universal Pack pouch machines for viscous and liquids can process all typical heat-sealable composite films, for example: PAP-ALU-PE (paper – aluminum – polyethylene), PET-ALU-PE (polyethene terephthalate – aluminium – polyethene) and cold sealable materials. Our machines can also package sustainable laminates such as PP (polypropylene), PLA (polylactic acid), PAP (paper), Bio-PE (bio-based polyethene), and more on request.

Our non-stop research in reducing the packaging industry carbon footprint resulted in streamlined machinery design for packing recycled, recyclable and compostable laminates. LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) is used to measure the environmental impact of our products and identify optimal ways to reduce it. It is a 360° analysis that goes beyond the mere packaging produced and involves every step of the packaging machinery production process. We develop our solutions shoulder-to-shoulder with the main global film suppliers and test them in agreement with major multinational companies in order to provide them with a turnkey solution able to produce eco-packages.
