Hybrid Spout Inserting SI-100 Flex
Hybrid machine for inserting and welding of commercial standard spouts in top or corner position into premade pouches. Welding technologies can be selected between heat or ultrasonic welding technology or both.
This machine is a perfect platform for those companies looking for continuing or starting using thermal technology for spout inserting on traditional laminates and being ready to offer a solution when it is needed to weld spouts on 100% recyclable materials.
Depending on your products and materials, you can choose the most suitable welding process with the same machine. This is possible after the development of a machine design that has been thought through to the smallest details. Our hybrid machine ensures the shortest possible changeover time from one welding process to another ensuring maximum flexibility.

Advantages of Hybrid Technology
- Ability to weld multi- and monomaterial structures in one machine by just changing welding tooling.
- High speed welding process in both cases
- Up to 100cycles with ultrasonic sealing technology
- Up to 90 cycles for thermal sealing technology
- High quality standards ensured by high repeatability and best welding seaming process.
- Reliable production process by constant energy input when using ultrasonic technology with up to 80% lower setup and changing times. No risk of burns during cleaning work as the tool is always cold.
- Optimal energy efficiency
Spout inserting Process
Pouch is pre-open and conditioned with hot air. Vacuum will then open top of the pouch for moving double-gripping unit to insert the spout before thermally/ultrasonically sealing it.
In the case of corner spout inserting the top seaming will be done with ultrasonic technology.
