The packaging machine SB51-1T is a vertically operating, fully automatic forming-, filling- and sealing machine for the production of very small tubular bags, the so called "Stickpacks". The machine processes different types of fleece from the flat foil reel. In a sequence of single operations, the film is drawn off from the reel, formed to a tube during transportation and sealed lengthwise, filled then, sealed transversally and cut off. The SB51-1T is conceived as a 1-lane machine.
