Your pet is important to you; and making sure that what you are feeding them is clean is crucial to their health.  From the factory, to the door, to your home, your pet’s food goes through a lot of hands.  So making sure they are properly sealed is key to making sure you are giving your pets the best food.  And making sure your customers are confident in the food they are feeding their pets.  

Bag sealing is an important step of the food manufacturing process.  You want to make sure that it is properly sealed without any outside products such as glue, as well as will not break open in transit.  A strong seal while reducing operational costs and increasing production is easy to obtain, as long as you have the right machinery in your production line.  

How to Seal Dog Food Bags

There have been many changes in the bag sealing world over the past few years.  The biggest being the removal of glue and other adhesives from the sealing process.  Miller Weldmaster Packaging Systems machines use Hot Air technology in place of Glue and other Adhesives.  Utilizing Hot Air is a clean and safe way to close all food bags.  Removing any toxins or bad products getting in with your dog’s food.  

The Packaging Systems line has a variety of different closing styles depending on your requirements.  All provide the same security and hot air method of bag sealing.  Pinch and double fold are the most common forms of bag sealing.  The PS150 and PS400 are the machines needed for these types of bag sealing.  If you are needing a flat seam tube or an overlap, the PS300 would accomplish those for you.  While these all provide a similar look and need, different markets require the different styles.  

For Example, the pinch method of bag sealing is most common in the United States and specifically for dog or cat food.  While in the European market, you may find the double fold method of bag sealing a requirement or more common.  That is why the Miller Weldmaster Packaging Systems machines cover all needs and requirements that you may come across for your bag sealing.
