La Mille Multi-Lane Sachet Packing Machine
La Mille is a packaging machine from MF PACKAGING (Italy) with a special design with the presence of two reels and a maximum width of 1000 mm, where the first one is placed in lateral position and the other one is in posterior position.
Thanks to the special configuration and detailed engineering design for this model, it is possible to obtain a much more compact installation with reduced space requirement for operation and also possible to save energy about 30% for handling of the rotating parts.
A big advantage in terms of cost saving is achieved by the operation with a single operator who is able to drive the two-reel technology. The compact frame of the machine and the friendly graphical user interface also make the operation of the machine very easy and convenient.
Dedicated engineering and flexibility in design applied in the La Mille technology has allowed MF PACKAGING to win the race of innovation in the world of multi-lane vertical packaging machine construction and development of a special machine that allows double production capacity and, at the same time, it ensures high reliability of the mechanical components, high speed, low maintenance, optimization of functional spaces and reduction of operating costs.
The use of the La Mille allows obtaining a better quality in the sachet formation process and optimizes packaging material due to the accurate and efficient control of the welding groups linked with appropriate systems, and timely registration of the packaging material.
Modular design of the La Mille also allows to improve and add more functions as cartoning solutions or other secondary packaging.

Single-Colour Flexo Printing Unit: It is installed in line with the packaging machine to print the wrapping film using one colour. It is particularly used in sectors requiring packaging with custom graphics. Extremely versatile, the various cliché rollers are very easy to change and are available in various diameters depending on the bag format or kind of graphics. Entirely electronic, it lets you change phase synchronisms whenever you want, even during the printing stage. Fitted with a self-washing system, it does not require too much time to clean it.
Thermal Transfer Rotary Marker: It is installed in line with the packaging machine to print the batch details and use-by date with thermoplastic ink. Extremely versatile, you can easily put together words and/or numbers by adding or removing characters on four lines. It is produced in versions with 1 head or several heads according to the number of lines on the packaging machine. Entirely electronic, it lets you change phase synchronisms whenever you want.
Dry Rotary Marker: Used to dry imprint the batch details and use-by date on the packaging’s sealing area. Extremely versatile, you can easily put together words and/or numbers by adding or removing characters.
Easy Open System: to mark packaging in a specific position and make it easier to open when using certain kinds of film that are difficult to tear.
Semi-Automatic Carton Filling Unit to Collect Untidy Bags: consisting of an 1800mm long belt, vibrator in the filling station, automatic carton ejection with the count is reached, manual feeding of empty boxes and photocell to report when there are no boxes.
Bag Diverter Flap: used to count and divert the flow of bags produced without a specific order from one container to the next.
Product Feeder: To automatically feed the product that needs to be packed whilst always keeping the level in the packaging machine’s hopper constant. Fitted with a system to automatically stop the machine when there are no more products.
Product Feeder (Pneumatic): Via a pipe located in a container, the system draws in the product, which is automatically fed to the packaging machine’s hopper. The level in the packaging machine is always constant and there is a system to automatically stop the machine when there are no more products.
Ponderal Sorter: To check weight with a system to eject packages exceeding tolerance limits and automatic batching correction (feed-back system).
Euro Lock Rotary Die-Cut: To make the euro lock hole in the packaging’s sealing area.
