We provide many options for filling, sealing and capping for food packages. Whether you are looking to fill containers, jars, pouches, or trays, we offer many solutions that will suit your needs. We provide packaging for hummus, Greek yogurt, frozen foods, single serve coffee containers (k-cups), and more.

Pack Line’s core characteristic is its flexibility and customization. Our machines are based on your specifications.

Filling

Our fillers are designed to provide an even product spread throughout. We have fillers that work well with different products.Our pneumatic and mechanical fillers are designed for liquids, pastes and salads. Our servo driven filler is meant for granulated, paste or liquid products. Our auger filler is designed for powder products and our volumetric filler fills containers with liquids. We also have special fillers for more complicated processes like our green filler for multi-component products and a specially designed PLR filler for easy-to-break products. We offer a multihead scale system, weight checker or timer mechanism that accurately supplies the proper product dosage into containers. All of our machines are equipped with a programmable logic control (PLC) system for quantity and temperature regulation.

Sealing

Our machines use a heat sealing system to weld plastics and other materials to our containers. We use heated bars that apply heat to the contact area of the container which seals the film to the container. We can provide an inner recessed membrane seal before lidding. The film seal method cuts a film membrane from a roll during the sealing process. We have machines that provide an aluminum feeding and sealing station which does pre-cut aluminum lid placement and sealing as found on yogurt containers. Our sealing methods extend shelf life and prevent contamination.

Capping

We provide capping for containers, jars or bottles. The overcap lid can be applied with a pick and place system using a suction that grabs the lid and transfers it onto the container. We also have capping machines that twists cap onto bottles.This can be done in a straight or rotative process.

Pouches

Our PDP line of stand-up pouch machines can be used for juices, dairy products, dressings, spices, and detergents. Our machines are equipped for modern-style packaging needs which makes our pouches attractive while increasing shelf life. Our machines include a rotary platform with pneumatic assemblies. It can work with packages that require zippers and can adjust to different pouch sizes.

Jars & Bottles

The machine can be adjusted to fill a variety of bottle and cap shapes and sizes. Our machines can fill up to four bottles simultaneously. Jar or bottle positioning is automatic and monitored by a photoelectric cell ensuring correct alignment with the fillers before filling. The machine can be incorporated in a full line including bottle blowing, capping, labeling and packing equipment. Machines include our PLF, PFM and PLG series designed for liquid and pastes.

Map Systems

One of the features that make our products unique is that they can work with a modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) system which creates a modified residual oxygen level within the package itself. A gas flush system can also complement the MAP systems that will inject products with nitrogen and remove the oxygen to increase shelf life and provide additional sanitation. A vacuum can also be used.

Our machines are designed to optimize food packaging with the highest safety and sanitation standards with speed and efficiency. We ultimately care about the final product. We want to bring your product onto grocery stores aisles and into customers homes so jump in line for our food packaging machines today.

K Cup Packaging Machines from Pack Line

Packaging MachineryCreated from the idea that people like to have a single fresh cup of coffee at a time, the k-cup coffee movement was born. In the mid to late 1990s, Keurig became one of the first recognizable brands in this market. Its parent company Green Mountain Coffee Brewers bought the patents for the single serve coffee pods making it the sole provider of k-cups for Keurig machines.

When Keurig lost its k-cup patents in the fall of 2012, there was a void that needed to be filled. Any coffee shop could now make k-cups for their machines. Competitors from giants like Kraft’s Maxwell House, the Rogers Family and Snapple jumped on board, but many small to mid-sized companies are bringing some novel tastes to the k-cup coffee market.

Pack Line offers top of the line k-cup packaging machines that will bring your company up to speed with the latest trend.

k-cup manufacturing equipment

Our PXG packaging machine is a fully-automatic filling and sealing k cup machine. It is our smallest producing  for the growing, mid-sized company. The PXG k cup packaging machine is capable of an output of 25 to 100 cups per minute. The k cup production machine has an auger filler which provides a simultaneous nitrogen injection into the container. This modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) process will ensure your coffee beans won’t get oxidized and turn stale. The PXG has an integrated filter insertion system which accurately inserts and holds filter paper in place. The k-cup production machine also seals the package with pre-cut aluminum foil lidding.

The PXM servo-driven, fully-automatic k-cup filling and sealing machine is for k cup single serve coffee production heavyweights. The PXM-4 can produce up to 210 to 240 cups per minute and our PXM-6 model has a capacity of up to 290 to 320 cups per minute. The Pk-cup packaging machineXM has ultrasonic or infrared cup sensors to ensure correct placement of filters and lids, and the option for a pre-gas flush of the empty cup. Depending on the output required, the PXM k cup production machine is designed to fit up to six lanes and has a capacity of six filling nozzles for powdered coffee products.

All of our k-cup packaging machines require that you manually load the paper filter into our feeding systems. Our carriers are designed to hold the filter in a central position when it is inserted into the cup. There is a unique vacuum system and a holding surface with pins which holds the filter in place and prevents movement. When in position, a heating element seals the filter to the side of the container with a nitrogen flush.

Our k cup packaging machines are fully customizable to fit your needs. We have many options to help your company with your k cup production needs so jump on the k-cup coffee manufacturing bandwagon today.
