Pouch making


Compact multi-web pouch machine designed for digital and conventional, fold & tuck gusset, quick changeover, ideal for short-medium run high performance production for standard laminations, mono-materials, and paper-based structures of:
2-side-seal pouches from 1 web without and with zipper
3-side-seal pouches from 1 web or 2 independent webs without and with zipper
Stand-up pouches from 1 web or 3 independent webs without and with zipper

Sustainable Machines for Sustainable Packaging

All Karlville Swiss pouch machines have embedded a dynamic braking energy storage device to create more sustainability in drive technology and lowering operational costs and a static energy storage device that protects against damage from temporary power failures. Only 6KWH consumption during production.
