News and Updates from Line Equipment on the company and it’s packaging machinery products.
Happy New Year to everyone!
The big news from us is we have developed a fast, easy to operate and tool free transition system that allows the LE360 bagging machine’s jaws to move from a traditional pillow, block bottom, gusset or quad style bagging machine to a Doy style packaging machine in under 40 seconds.
The rotatable jaws and true fin back seal allows for this ONE machine, now named the LE360 PDQ, to cover more bag styles and you can also have the ability to add resealable zip closures too.
With the ability to add multiple Forming Sets for each Bag Style Set Up the range of bag sizes, in various styles, offers incredible flexibility.
We are very excited about this machine. The first one off production is live and running with a customer in Sheffield. They are very kindly allowing us to take interested potential customers in to see it running by arrangement, although we are trying not to abuse this privilege. We are building a demo machine for the factory – if you interested in seeing this machine let us know.

Good few days at The PPMA Total Show at the NEC. Plenty of interesting visitors.
Good interest in our Zip Applicator which was demonstrating one the range of Zip Pak™ resealable (re-closable) zips that are available.
You are welcome to visit our Nottingham factory for a demonstration of our new Continuous Motion bagger.
The Continuum™ is set up to run with a Zip Applicator on as well, so you will be able to see both applications running. Of course, we will be on hand to explain the various benefits of continuous motion over intermittent and to answer all your questions.
Demo Length. 1 hour.
Register your interest to attend here and I will get some dates out to you.
Back from the PPMA Total Show. Three very busy and interesting days. Always a pleasure to meet people starting new ventures and be involved with ensuring they get the right machines to suit their product. It is quite a level of responsibility and one we enjoy.
Usually, new venturesÂ come to the exhibitionÂ with minimalÂ knowledge of the engineering aspects of the machinery required. Their expertise lies in theÂ product that they have developed and are excited about. They nowÂ want to get it to market as quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. As such they need to find a packaging machine company that can fulfil the brief while offering a level of expertise that they can trust and rely on.
This is where I find John’s experience on stand invaluable. MostÂ products have their own idiosyncrasies which leads to some small optimisation of each machine, or the right add-on, to ensure perfect bag filling, and John has seen them all. A great wealth of knowledge that will save some people a few headaches!
Flying the flag, literally, at The PPMA Total Show. I took the photo nice and early. Pleased to say it was too busy to get a full stand photo most of the rest of show.
Busy couple of months as you will see from the map!
Also installed 3 machines into Walls in Australia and built 4 complete lines with LE 200s for the USA.
