How does vertical form fill and seal technology work?
The vertical form, fill and seal process (also known as VFS or VFFS or vertical bagging) starts with a cylindrical roll of film. The vertical bagging machine will transfer film from the roll through the forming collar (aka tube or plow). Once transferred through the collar, the film will then fold and the vertical seal bars will extend to seal the back of the pouch. Once the desired pouch length is transferred and filled with product, the horizontal seal bars will then close, seal and cut the pouch providing a finished product with top and bottom horizontal seals and one vertical back seal.
