Universal Pack designs and builds a wide range of custom-built stick pack packaging machines. Specifically, our vertical intermittent-motion stick pack machines can handle free-flowing powders combining high speed packaging operations with constant dose accuracy during long runs. We made it possible thanks to our basculating dosing system.
Our basculating doser guarantees output maximization through a volumetric oscillating cups system, with micrometrical adjustment of the dose. Parts in direct contact with product are in stainless steel AISI 316L or other suitable materials.
The company’s patented design to insert and fold sealing film around forming tubes represents one of the advantages for achieving maximum efficiency and reliability. Thanks to this, Universal Pack machines are known worldwide.
Our stick pack machines for free-flowing powders are a compact solution combining the highest output with a small footprint. These solutions include many advantages such as great dose accuracy, minor wrapping material waste, easy handling and cleaning. Moreover, our user-friendly and modular stick pack machines allow our customers to reduce downtime and fulfill their increasingly high production demands.
Universal Pack stick pack machines are specifically-dedicated to single-dose packages. For example, we can dose from 0,1 up to 100 g. of free-flowing powders & granules in a stick pack, the dimensions of which vary depending on your marketing goals, nature of the products and production requirements.
Moreover, we provide you with the possibility to easily integrate your stick pack machine in a Universal Pack packaging line for cartoning. Our lines allow you to insert from 1 up to 100 or more stick packs in one carton. We have developed patented counting units for any amount of packages to be picked up and put into cartons. In recent years, our philosophy is to save as much material and product as possible, both for economic and environmental sustainability.
Universal Pack stick pack machines for free-flowing powders can process all typical heat-sealable composite films, for example: PAP-PE (paper – polyethene), PAP-ALU-PE (paper – aluminum – polyethylene), PET-ALU-PE (polyethene terephthalate – aluminium – polyethene) and cold sealable materials. Our machines can also work with 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 processing with 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.
