Vertical Tea Stick Pack Machine
The tea stick machine was designed for simplicity of use, such as to produce simple and easy to use tea sticks, for Hotels and restaurants and the domestic machet. Instead of tea bag paper, the packaging material can be a normal light laminate. The machines does not require special film, as the machine punches water circulation holes in the film, during production, with a special mould. Therefore, the stick can be directly put in the cup or mug of hot water and stirred around, like a spoon, to brew the tea. The machine delivers 2-3g of tea in to each stick of 18mm x 135mm. It has a simple slide dosing unit, so that the tea does not bridge. Photocell for printed film is included on the machine. The machine format can be for single lane, 3 lanes or 5 lanes for higher production speed. The layout of the 5 lane machine is shown below both of which are based on the modular 101S above.
