The Continuum™ - Continuous Motion VFFS Bagging MachineThe Future of Continuous Motion - Today
Continuous Motion Form, Fill & Seal Bagger
Line Equipment have completed development of the UK designed and built LE 360C, The Continuum™ a Continuous Motion VFFS machine suitable for bag sizes of up to 360 mm width.
This Continuum™ combines the core characteristics of our range, the fully stainless build from within our own workshops with the latest Omron Motion Controller controlling the 3 servo drives plus the advantages that continuous motion will offer some product sectors.
The advantage continuous motion bag filling offers is not just an increase in speed, although this will appeal to some packaging companies, but the motion of the bags during filling, as the vertical jaws rise upwards and then move down in motion with the falling product, producing a more gentle, kinder bag fill and reducing issues such as bruising, in the case of fruit or vegetables, or excess air underneath a product preventing full bags, in the case of, for example, lettuce leaves.
There is also the option of taking the bruising issue another step forward and specifying the machine as ‘low drop’ to further cushion the content, which is ideal for some products, particularly in larger bag/sack sizes.
As you would expect from Line Equipment, The Continuum™ continuous motion bagging machine works with various filling methods and has a full range of optional add-ons available, including zip applicator and MAP capabilities.
Continuous motion is also available on the other machines in the range, so most bag sizes will be catered for.

Continuous Motion Demo Days
We are holding Demo Days throughout 2017 of The Continuum™, our Continuous Motion VFFS Machine in our Nottingham factory. If you are interested in coming along and learning about the benefits of continuous motion, please sign up to be alerted to dates, below.
If you have a product that could be damaged during the bag filling process – for example fruit that could get bruised – than it worth considering a VFFS machine that moves in “Continuous Motion”. John gives an overview in this video.
In this video you can clearly see the machine jaws ‘D’ Motion continuous motion action combining with the continuous motion of the film that generates faster bag fills. Later in the video you can see a re-closable zip being added to the bags.
