Feeding and Positioning

First, the product is transported to the working area of the packaging machine through the feeding device.

Film unfolding

The packaging machine uses a continuous roll of packaging film which will be used to wrap the product.

Forming the bag

In this step, the film is folded and closed on one side to form a bag. The shape of the bag can be rectangular or oblong, and looks like a “pillow”, hence the name “pillow packaging.

Filling the product

Next, the product is precisely placed into the formed bag. Typically, the product enters the bag from above, and the bag is continuously moved by a conveyor belt or film.

Closing and Cutting

Once the product has been placed into the bag, the other side of the bag will be closed while the space between the bags is sealed into individual packages. Next, the bags will be cut as needed to make each bag an individual, sealed package.


Finally, the completed bags are removed from the outfeed end of the packaging machine, usually via a conveyor or other device for collection or further transportation.
