On June 9, 2021, Sywen Packaging received an inquiry from New Zealand with the following content: We need the automatic snack packaging machine, please send us the best offer.

Our reply on June 10, 2021:

What kind of snacks do you fill? What is the packing method?

The client’s email on June 11, 2021:

They are nut snacks, such as nuts, pecans, pistachios, raisins, walnuts, almonds, etc., all are filled in PET bottles.

Our reply on June 11, 2021:

What is the filling specification? What is the required accuracy and speed?

The client’s email on June 14, 2021:

The packaging specification is 100g-300g, the filling speed is about 20 bottles/min, and the accuracy should reach ±3‰. When workers fill nuts by hand, in order to improve the production efficiency, the filling accuracy will be ignored, and there are often more or fewer nuts in each bottle.

When using the semi-automatic granule filling machine for packaging, due to the certain filling accuracy error in each weighing hopper, the actual total amount of each bottle of nut snacks will differ by about 5g-10g from the set value after filling.

Our reply on June 15, 2021:

In order to improve the filling accuracy, we recommend that the automatic granule packaging machine use a multi-head combination weigher to measure. The multi-head combination scale is mainly suitable for the rapid quantitative weighing of various granular, flake, strip, irregular shapes, and other materials such as candy, melon seeds, biscuits, frozen food, pistachio, puffed food, etc.

The load of the weighing unit is automatically calculated by the principle of permutation and combination, and the most accurate combination result is selected after automatically calculating.

What kind of packaging machines do you need?

The client’s email On June 18, 2021:

We need the automatic granule filling machine, automatic cans sealing machine, automatic bottle labeling machine, automatic screw capping machine, and rotary accumulation turntables for finished products.

Is there a way to reduce the problem of broken nuts during filling? When we used the semi-automatic granule packaging machine for filling, there was no buffer when the nuts were conveyed from the granule conveyor into the hopper of the filling machine, the nuts fall directly into the hopper, the roasted nuts easily fall into two pieces or more.

When the nuts fall into the bottle after weighing, because there is no buffer, it is also very prone to the occurrence of nuts breakage.

Our reply on June 19, 2021:

The inclination angle of the weighing unit baffle of the multi-head combination weigher is controlled by the motor, which can be freely set according to the volume and characteristics of the granular material. The speed of opening and closing of the baffle can also be finely adjusted to reduce the occurrence of nuts breaking and material blockage.

Please send us the sample pictures of bottle, caps and labels so that we can customized a suitable packaging solution for you.

The client’s email on June 23, 2021:

Please see the picture below, the outer cover of the bottle is a PET screw cap, it is single-sided labeling.

The client’s email on July 3, 2021:

PET bottles of different diameters and heights can be filled with one automatic granule filling machine?

Our reply on July 14, 2021:

Yes. The width of the conveyor belt under the filling machine can be adjusted manually, and the unloading height can also be set by adjusting the cylinder.

In the next four months, we further communicated with the client about the working video, setting, operation, equipment placement, after-sales service, and other issues of the machine, we received the bottle, bottle caps, and label samples on Dec. 23, 2021, our factory workers purchased several types of roasted nuts at for the packaging test.

We made the packaging test from December 28th to December 30th, 2021, the filling accuracy, filling speed, and integrity of the nuts can meet the client’s packaging requirements, and then we sent the detailed packaging video and report to him, he was quite satisfied with the test results.

On January 20, 2022, we received a 30% deposit for the customer’s order, and now the machine is still in production, the estimated shipping date from Qingdao, China to the destination port is about March 10, 2022.

If you are looking for an automatic snack packaging machine and want to know more about the filling accuracy, filling speed, supporting equipment, etc. of the machine, we hope the above nuts snacks packaging solution can give you some reference and help!
