The SPM 50 pouch making machine from SN Maschinenbau makes up to 4,200 pouches per hour and achieves with just one film reel continuous production of over 30,000 spout pouches per eight-hour shift

These stand-up pouches are handy, stable, reclosable and suitable for liquid or pasty foods such as fruit purees - stand-up pouches with spouts. For the in-house production of pouches, Südpack offers a certified recyclable film solution that is also suitable for hot filling and pasteurisation.

Thanks to the use of PP-based films, the packaging concept is a strong alternative to conventional material structures in terms of both sustainability and performance. Some of its advantages include high material efficiency and recyclability, maximum product protection, easy processing and process reliability. An additional advantage – the practical pouches can be produced in-house on standard packaging machines, which makes them a cost-effective alternative to pre-made pouches.

The pouches are made using high-performance films from the Pure-Line product family from Südpack. These PP-based films are classified as recyclable.

The PP spouts with Menshen Lotus technology can be connected to the pouches due to the coordination of the heat distribution and conductivity.

For product protection, the PP-based film can be individually equipped with different barriers against water vapour, oxygen or UV light. Due to their heat resistance, the material structures are also suitable for hot filling and pasteurisation.

The SPM 50 horizontal pouch making machine from SN Maschinenbau makes up to 4,200 pouches per hour and achieves with just one film reel continuous production of over 30,000 spout pouches per eight-hour shift.

This is equivalent to an annual production volume of seven million spout pouches in one-shift operation and up to 21 million in three-shift operation. Thanks to its compact design, the low-maintenance and user-friendly machine can also fit in tight production spaces. This allows for its flexible placement either right next to the filling machine or on its own in a separate room.
