Benefits of Buying Rebuilt Packaging Machinery & Equipment

When shopping for new packaging equipment for a new or existing production line, consider purchasing rebuilt packaging machinery and equipment to meet your needs. There are benefits that come with rebuilt equipment that can offer your business a great return on your capital investment.

But first…

What Is Rebuilt Packaging Machinery?

Rebuilt packaging machinery is packaging equipment that has been reconstructed for full functionality. With high-quality rebuilt equipment, including VFFS and HFFS machinery and more, you can complete your packaging systems without the need for new equipment.

Benefits of Rebuilt Packaging Machinery & Equipment

1. Reduced Costs

One of the benefits of getting rebuilt packaging equipment for your production line is lower costs. You won’t need to spend as much on rebuilt machinery as you would on new machinery from the manufacturer. This is particularly ideal if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on a packaging system for a new business.

Even if your business is well-established and you can afford new equipment, you can still benefit from the same improved productivity and longevity that you would get with new machinery when you install rebuilt systems.

2. Reliable Equipment

If you purchase rebuilt packaging machinery from a trusted company, you won’t need to worry about compromising quality for reduced costs. A reliable reseller will make sure all rebuilt equipment is fully functional and ready for installation before selling it. Rebuilt equipment is heavily tested to ensure optimal working conditions – just like you’d expect from a new piece of equipment.

Where to Buy Rebuilt Packaging Machinery

There are many resellers that carry rebuilt packaging equipment. The key to finding the right one is making sure you find a company that you can trust to provide you with top-quality machinery for your application. You shouldn’t settle for equipment that will leave your system vulnerable to shutdowns and downtime simply because it costs less than a newer system.

What to Look for When Shopping for Rebuilt Packaging Equipment

If you’re trying to find the right rebuilt packaging machines for your production lines, there are certain aspects to consider, including:

1. Rebuilt Packaging Equipment from Top Manufacturers

Although you won’t buy rebuilt machinery from the manufacturers, it’s important to get equipment originally built by manufacturers that are known for their quality. The best resellers will rebuild equipment from brands that are trusted in the industry for consistent quality of construction, which will help ensure that they last once rebuilt.

Brands such as Hayssen, Ishida, Matrix, Yamato, Ilapak, Deamco, and Loma equipment will remain reliable when rebuilt using durable materials. Make sure the reseller you purchase your equipment from advertises equipment from these and other reputable manufacturers.

2. Additional Services

To help you get the most from your rebuilt packaging machinery, a dependable reseller will also provide services to supplement your purchases. Services that can maximize your equipment’s longevity and maximize productivity across your entire production line can include installation services, troubleshooting, operator training, preventative maintenance programs, OEE programs, line start-ups, and performance improvement.

Ultimately, rebuilt packaging equipment can give you what you need to complete your systems without going over budget or putting your systems at risk of costly inefficiencies and breakdowns.

Differences Between VFFS Bag Types

Vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machinery is used for packaging many different types of products in a wide variety of bags. Many food and nonfood items rely on VFFS equipment for high-quality packaging. This type of equipment is designed to handle various widths, lengths, and shapes of bags, depending on the specific application. These are simply some of the many bags VFFS machinery is intended to package.

Pillow Style Bag

The pillow style bag is simple, economical, and subsequently popular. Candy, coffee, cereal, fresh fruit, vegetables, hardware, and many other types of products use this bag style for product containment. Their simplicity makes them ideal for high-speed packaging applications, with lower film cost.

Quad Seal Bag

Another popular type of bag for VFFS packaging is the quad seal bag, which is a versatile type of stand-up bag that can hold a wide range of products. It’s most commonly used to hold coffee, candy, snacks, pet food, and candy. Unlike other types of bags, it can hold its shape when placed on shelves and is capable of supporting heavier amounts of product.

Doy Pack

The doy pack bag is a pouch that can stand upright, and is often used to contain premium products such as coffee, pasta, pet food, powders, and snacks. Zippers are applicable on the top of this pouch-style bag.

Stand-up Bag with Carry Handle

This bag’s design is similar to the quad seal bag, except it’s designed for even heavier product fills. This type of package often holds chemicals, cleaning products, pet food, and other denser products. The handle allows users to carry the bag with more ease than other stand-up bags.

Tetrahedron Bag

Tetrahedron bags are designed for smaller single-serve products, intended to stand out while remaining compact. Tea, coffee, spices, candies, nuts, and spices are some of the products that can benefit from this type of bag.

Gusseted Bag

This pouch’s box-like design is similar to stand-up bag models, with collapsible gusseted sides and the ability to either stand up or rest on its sides. This particular bag model is used to handle cereal, nuts, pet food, coffee, candy, powders, and more. Its design makes it ideal for case packing and pallet stacking. Add-ons such as zippers, degassing valves, carry handles, punch holes, and more work well with this design.

Stick Pack Bag

Like tetrahedron bags, stick pack bags are designed for single-serve products. Their thin, accessible design makes them ideal for liquids, powders, and granular products, among others.

Use VFFS Machinery for Many Other Types of Bags

These are simply some of the popular bag designs that VFFS machinery is used to package. Sachets, three-side sealed bags, and others can utilize VFFS equipment in the packaging process to maximize productivity and quality. High Performance Packaging carries a wide selection of top-quality used packaging equipment to implement in your facility, designed to meet the standards of many different industries.
