AlphaFlex buffering system ensures complete synchronisation sachet layers printed in full colour at 1600-dpi

This compact, professional-grade dosing and delivery system will feature high quality synchronised printing on both sides of the sachets, powered by Memjet’s DuraFlex technology and ColourGATE packaging production server when it becomes commercially available later this year. The V-Shapes AlphaFlex dosing and delivery technology makes it possible for vertical integration of high-volume production of the patented V-Shapes single-dose sachets, eliminating the need to outsource printing and giving complete manufacturing control back to the brand owners and co-packers.

PackExpo, scheduled for 27 to 29 September in Las Vegas, marks the first time AlphaFlex will be shown in North America.

“We are excited to be able to show our new AlphaFlex dosing and delivery solution to the many attendees expected at PackExpo Las Vegas 2021,” said Charanjit Hayre, president / CEO of V-Shapes North America. “This revolutionary filling/converting machine was made possible through a variety of important partnerships, including Memjet, Siemens and SIHL, as well as the talented V-Shapes engineering team. It was no small challenge to develop synchronised feeds and professional quality printing of our patented single-dose sachets, and we think the visitors to PackExpo will be amazed when they see what we and our partners have accomplished!”

V-Shapes AlphaFlex features integrated in-line printing into the V-Shapes six-lane Alpha machine, enabling packaging converters/fillers to accomplish the complete manufacturing process of V-Shapes’ unique single-dose sachets under one roof with a compact footprint, full colour branding capabilities, inline, on-demand and with the industry’s highest quality. In the AlphaFlex configuration, the printing module prints a single side of the single-dose sachets inline, synchronized with each other, and precisely married for die cutting, filling and sealing.
