Frequently Asked Questions
  • How much does packaging equipment cost?

    形状 Created with Sketch.
    Determining the cost of packaging equipment is not a straightforward task as it varies depending on the specific requirements of each customer. Therefore, it is not practical to provide a standard pricing estimate. However, I can give you a general range: Fully automated systems can range from the mid-to-high five figures up to millions of dollars.
    The price of packaging equipment is largely influenced by your unique needs. Factors such as the type of products you wish to package, the desired packaging speeds, the styles and sizes of the bags, the complexity of your process, and the urgency of delivery all play a role in determining the cost.
    In general, the more complex, customized, or high-speed your packaging process needs to be, the higher the expected cost will be.

    ZOMUKIKAI provides a range of flexible packaging machines to cater to various needs and requirements. Here are some of the types of machines we offer:

    Bag Filling and Sealing Machines: These machines are designed to handle preformed bags. They fill the bags with the desired product and seal them shut. These machines are user-friendly, require low-skilled labor, and are suitable for companies that have different bag sizes and short production runs. They produce a high-quality, visually appealing final product.
    Form Fill Seal Packaging Machines: vertical form fill seal machines(VFFS) form the bags, fill them with the product, and seal them in a vertical manner. Horizontal form fill seal machine(HFFS) is similar to VFFS, but it operates in a horizontal manner. HFFS machines start with a flat sheet of packaging material, form it into a pouch, fill it with the product, and then seal it. HFFS machines are known for their versatility in handling different product sizes and shapes. VFFS and HFFS are well-established technology capable of operating at high speeds and are cost-effective. They are best suited for dedicated production lines with minimal variation in product and bag styles.
    Cartoning Equipment: Our cartoning machines are designed to place a specific quantity of sachets, stick packs, or vials into cartons and seal them. These machines automate the process of box filling and sealing, enhancing production efficiency and packaging quality.
    Case Packaging Equipment: This equipment is used to directly pack a specific quantity of bags into corrugated boxes, or to push cartons into corrugated boxes. It is typically employed in the final stages of product packaging, ensuring that the finished packaged products are placed securely in the corrugated cartons for storage, transportation, and distribution purposes.
    These packaging equipment play a crucial role in production lines, ensuring the integrity and protection of the packaged products while improving production efficiency and reducing labor costs.
    Please note that the availability of specific machines may vary, and it's best to consult with ZOMUKIKAI directly for detailed information about their current product offerings.
  • What's the difference between semi-automatic and fully automatic packaging systems?

    形状 Created with Sketch.
    A fully automatic packaging system is designed for high speeds and minimal human involvement. These systems are ideal for companies that have a large volume of products with relatively low variation. A fully automated production line typically includes equipment for product feeding, product weighing scales, and machines for packaging the products into bags or containers. Fully automatic systems provide a high level of accuracy and consistency but require a larger initial investment.
    On the other hand, a semi-automatic packaging system still relies on a significant amount of human labor. For example, products may be manually weighed or counted, and then placed into bags or containers using machines that assist in lifting and sealing. These semi-automatic packaging lines are suitable for handling various irregular or mixed products, where manual intervention is necessary to ensure proper packaging.
    Semi-automatic systems offer a balance between automation and human involvement, providing flexibility for handling different product variations and accommodating specific packaging needs. While they may not operate at the same high speeds as fully automatic systems, semi-automatic lines are often more cost-effective and allow for greater adaptability to different packaging requirements.
  • Can one packaging machine handle different bag styles, sizes, and products?

  • If I am going to place the order, is it necessary for me to provide you with the pouch (bottle, carton) I want to use and the samples of product I want to pack?

    形状 Created with Sketch.
    Yes, it is necessary for you to provide us with the specific bag (carton) that you intend to use for packaging, as well as samples of the product you want to pack. This is because we need to conduct thorough testing of our machine using your specific packaging materials and product.
    By having the actual bag (carton) and product samples, we can ensure that our machine is properly adjusted to accommodate the size, shape, and characteristics of your packaging. This includes setting up the machine to handle the specific dimensions and specifications of your bag (carton) to ensure smooth and accurate packaging operations.
  • What is production process and delivery time condition of packing machine?
