90 BPM – 1-Up Packaging Machine
The Massman Talon microwave popcorn packaging machine utilizes a cam and lever mechanical design that provides for a low maintenance and trouble-free operation. An in-line bag magazine feeds a rotary bag placer into clipped flight system. The bags are opened with vacuum, indexed to a volumetric cup filler for corn filling, then indexed to a precision metering pump for liquid filling. The top of the bags are sealed in the seal station, indexed again and folded, then released to the pick off discharge.
150 BPM – 2-Up Packaging Machine
The Massman Talon microwave popcorn packaging machine utilizes a cam and lever mechanical design which provides for a low maintenance and trouble-free operation. An in-line bag magazine feeds a rotary bag placer into a clipped flight system, the bag is opened with vacuum, indexed to a volumetric cup filler for corn filling then indexed to a precision metering pump for liquid filling. The tops of the bags are then sealed in the seal station, indexed and folded, and finally released to the pick off discharge. Bags are filled a the rate of 150 bags per minute.
Talon Supra Microwave Popcorn Bag Maker
The Talon Supra Microwave Popcorn Bag Maker utilizes several standard features, including the motorized nip roller to isolate the web tension from the unwind, the web steering system provides control of the web, a side seam glue applicator, and web forming with digital position indicators for accurate and quick set-up. The Supra also includes solid state electronics for drum heaters, an eight-station seal drum, a multi-lingual touch screen operator interface for ease of use, the latest in electronic componentry, a very reliable and low maintenance Servo controlled main nip roller with rotary knife, a shingling conveyor, and a bad bag discharge.
300 BPM Integration Packaging System
The Massman Talon microwave popcorn packaging Integrated System begins with the KTI Dual Unwind Stand, which holds large 42 inch diameter rolls of web material. This web material is then fed into the Supra Bag Maker providing for a continuous operation with the Auto Splice feature. The Supra Bag Maker folds and glues the web material to form the bag. These bags are then conveyed automatically, alternating between two 150 BPM Microwave Popcorn Packaging Machines where the bags are filled and sealed for a combined rate of 300 BPM.
How Microwave Popcorn Packaging Machines Works
Microwave popcorn packaging requires extra care due to the product’s fragility, light weight, and volume requirements. As with all food packing, quality, safety, and efficiency are essential. Our Talon machines’ features provide seamless assembly and consistent results:
- Rotary vacuum bag placer: A rotary vacuum bag placer offers high-speed performance, continuous motion, and multiple configurations. It ensures your popcorn bags are in the correct spot for the vacuum to open them.
- Volumetric cup fillers: Popcorn kernels enter the popcorn bag through volumetric cup fillers. These components preserve the popcorn’s integrity and reliably fill each bag with the proper amount.
- Precision metering pumps: Metering pumps evenly distribute flavorings and cooking oil. Their accuracy minimizes spills and other incidents that impact your productivity.
- Heated top seal stations: After being filled, bags are indexed to the seal station. Heated top seal stations give your packaging a uniform, airtight finish that prevents leakage.
- Guillotine-style bag folder: The bag folder’s guillotine blades offer clean cuts, ensuring neat folds and professional outcomes every time. Once the bag is folded, it goes to the pick-off discharge.
A popcorn packing machine can be semi-automatic or automatic. Both variants have the same filling process, but the semi-automatic version has a separate sealing station.
