Headquartered in Meerbusch, near Duesseldorf in Germany, Teepack Spezialmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG has specialized in tea packaging machines since 1948 and is one of the leading packaging system providers worldwide, Teepack has successfully implemented over 3,000 tailor-made solutions for the packaging of tea across the globe. Its latest development is the PERFECTA FLOWPACK, which combines the established PERFECTA TAG machine with an integrated flowpack unit. Teepack now offers an all-in-one solution which is designed for the efficient filling, packaging and flow-wrapping of high-quality double chamber tea bags. 

Cost-saving and efficient packaging

The PERFECTA FLOWPACK not only produces tea bags with string and tag, but also wraps ten or more filled tea bags in a sealed foil. In the past, this required a separate flow-wrapping machine. To make the packaging process more efficient, Teepack has now integrated the flow-wrapping unit into its tried-and-tested machine. Using heat-sealing, PERFECTA FLOWPACK ensures that the tea bags are perfectly and hermetically sealed. This combined solution not only saves space, but also investment costs, thus reducing the total costs of ownership.

By avoiding the need to transfer tea bags from the packaging machine to the flowpack unit, extra handling time can be saved. Thanks to its modular and compact design, PERFECTA FLOWPACK is low maintenance and easy to handle. With its convenient recipe-management system, the machine allows simple and fast foil changes. The number of tea bags in each flowpack can be easily adjusted using the control panel (HMI) with no mechanical setting necessary. This makes the PERFECTA FLOWPACK a convenient system, which reduces the overall packaging price.
