North American packaging company Prolamina Corporation has recently received a custom-built pouching machine Totani BH80.
Housed in Prolamina’s Neenah, Wisconsin facility, this is the company’s second facility to be tooled with Totanis.
“We capitalized on our experience with our existing Totani machines and partnered with Totani’s engineers to design a machine with high speed and versatility that will support our growth initiatives in the pouching market,” says Matt Conlin, VP of sales.
In collaboration with Totani, Prolamina designed a pouching machine to support customers’ demands for their proprietary stand-up pouch, PRO-POUCH.
The packaging is custom designed with a W-fold or auxiliary gusset, and is 100% leakproof with pre-welded fitments.
These premade, stand-up pouches are vertically integrated with print and lamination for a cost-effective turnkey pouching solution that can include custom closures such as zippers.
The new Totani’s larger bed size allows for a four-up format that produces pouches of various sizes and closures.
These pouch configurations range from a basic three-side seal to the traditional stand-up pouch with a zipper feature.
Other features may include a punched-out handle for everything from large bag applications to pouches, with different materials being used in the front or back panels.
The BH80’s upgraded sensors and camera systems closely monitor crucial areas of quality to ensure that every pouch is made to specifications.
