Which Machine I should choose to Get Start?

Leafy vegetables – bag packaging made of ordinary anti-fog film

Among all green vegetables, leafy vegetables account for the majority, such as lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, coriander, chives…

They vary in length, so the size of the bag to be packed varies greatly from one to other. In that case, a machine that can automatic detect leafy vegetable length is very important, and could save lots of extra work and downtime for adjust the machine and bag length.

Check leafy vegetable packing machine:

Anti-fog film: anti-fog film is a very wise choice when you choose packing film material, since leafy vegetable will be very easy to raise fog while it stay in closed bag

The most popular Leafy vegetable packaging machine is model 450X,600X,700X;

The feeding conveyor has equipped with rolling balls to prevents the leaves from being damaged in the process of conveying vegetables, and to reduces the friction between the vegetables and the side wall, thereby to improve the packaging efficiency;

Design of grating electric eye: Considering the leaf vegetables is not regular shape, and with different length, the product sensor is a pair of opposite-beam gratings instead of ordinary single electric sensor, which can improve the sensitivity and accuracy of the machine to better identify vegetables, and then cutting and sealing the bag much accuracy.

Down paper flow packing machine is more suitable for leafy vegetables. The middle sealing mechanism is above the vegetables, when the leafy vegetables enter the bag maker, go through to the middle sealing extend to the end sealing. The film below the wet vegetable can perfect protects the machine to get wet, specially the middle sealing mechanism, effectively prolong its service life;

End-seal with drag chain design: prevent the leaves from being clamped, and ensure that all the vegetables can be packaged, sealed and cut smoothly;

But if it is big round ones like cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, you can consider wrapping by preservative film.

Check Semi-automatic Preservative film packing machine

If your production capacity is not particularly large, it is recommended to consider a semi-automatic preservative film packaging machine, because the price of automatic one will be very high cost, and there are relatively few professional manufacturers currently; Semi-automatic preservative film wrapping machine can ensure lower input costs.

Small vegetables / small fruits and vegetables – with plastic tray then into the bag

There are also some tiny leafy vegetables, such as bean sprouts, Dutch beans, small peppers, etc., and small sage fruits, etc., Those small vegetables are not able to handle by general leafy vegetable, also not good to do with preservative film.

This type of vegetable can be considered first packed into plastic tray, and then packed into plastic bag. It’ll be more convenient during packing process also easier for end customer to carry and use.
