As the saying goes, the five flavors of life-sweet and sour, bitter, and salty, are necessary. As one of the five flavors, sweetness is indeed necessary for people’s lives. White sugar is widely used as a raw material for food production, a must-have for flavoring, and a necessary companion for coffee. A sugar packaging machine you must need it.
And in reality, the types of white granulated sugar that we commonly see are also very diverse. The granulated sugar that comes with coffee is a long or small square packaging.
We usually use five hundred grams of bags for cooking or boiling water. For pastries, biscuits, or other manufacturers, it is a large-bag type.
Different white sugar packaging, the corresponding white sugar packaging machine is also very different.
There are 5 pieces of advice on choosing suitable sugar packaging machines for you.
First: You Need to Decide on the Packaging Materials for Your Future Sugar Packaging Machine.
There are many types of white granulated sugar packaging machines. If it is a sugar bag for coffee production or a small-weight packaging, we can use a vertical granule packaging machine. For small packages, for example, stick bags, these sachets can be produced with different packaging materials.
For example, paper/polyethylene, cellophane/polyethylene, polypropylene/polyethylene, polyester/aluminum foil/polyethylene, polyester/aluminum/polyethylene, nylon/polyethylene, polyester/polyethylene, etc.
1) Laminated Film & LLDPE Single Layer Film For Sugar Packing Machine
The packaging film will decide the design of a normal Sugar Packing Machine. For the sugar mill industry using 1kg pouch packaging, normally two kinds of films are commonly adopted: one is the laminated film and another is LLDPE Single Layer Film.
The laminated film and the LLDPE film have different heat-sealing features. Especially the temperature sensitivity is much different. The laminated film seals at 150 – 200 Centigrade, while the LLDPE film seals at only 100 – 120 Centigrade.
Heating Rod & Heating Block
The sugar packing machine using Laminated Film and LLDPE single-layer film is different too. The two kinds of sugar-packing machines make use of different kinds of heaters and temperature controllers.
The Laminated Film sugar-packing machine uses a heating rod, and the LLDPE single-layer film sugar-packing machine uses a heating ribbon. For the temperature controller, the sugar packing machine coming with Laminated Film uses a Temperature Controller, while the sugar packing machine coming with LLDPE single-layer film uses Ropex Temperature Controller.

2) The Advantage Comparison Between Laminated Film and LLDPE Film (Single Layer Film)
Laminated film sugar packing machine
There are several advantages of a sugar packing machine that comes with laminated film. First of all, the Laminated Film Machine cost is cheaper than the machine coming with the LLDPE single-layer film. Secondly, the laminated film packing machine is at a higher speed than the LLDPE packing machine. It’s about 5~10 bags/min. difference. At last, it’s more stable than sealing than the LLDPE film machine.
LLDPE Single-Layer Sugar Packing Machine
While there’re also some advantages to the LLDPE sugar-packing machine. Firstly, the packaging material is cheaper. The LLDPE single-layer film is much cheaper than the laminated film machine. If the packaging capacity is huge, the total cost of packaging materials will save a lot after a whole year of consumption. Secondly, it’s much easier for sugar LLDPE packages filled in big bags.
After small bags of sugar packaging, will be filled into big bags. Usually, there are 20 small packets per big bag. An automatic bag-in-bag packing machine will do this secondary packaging. It strictly requires small bags that should be soft. LLDPE bags completely comply with this standard. Otherwise, if the small bags are too stiff, they will not be packaged well inside the big bags.
Second, It Needs to Study the Local Market and Decide What Are Your Clients’ Favorite Package Styles.
Stick, sachet, pouch, or paper packaging, stand-up pouch, woven plastic flat bag, etc. The sachet packaging machine is suitable for sachet packaging with small dosing as well as the stick packaging machine.
The Form-fill-seal machine is suitable for pouch packaging with middle-volume dosing. The automatic rotary packing machine is suitable for pre-made pouches including stand-up pouches, doy bags, zipper pouches, etc. While the automatic bagger machine is better for pp bags with a large volume filling.
Stand-up pouches and zip bags are also widely used. The bags are premade by the premade packing machine.
Third: You Need to Know Your Output.
If your daily production is large, it advises using a fully automatic packing machine. If small output, then use a semi-automatic packing machine.
Synda Pack can supply the best packing solution for you. Kilo sugar packing machine is a very popular packaging nowadays.
The 1kg or a half kilo or 3kg sugar packages we see on the market shelves belong to this category.
As a sugar packaging machine, an electronic weigher machine or a volumetric machine can be used. If the powdered sugar is too powdery, you can also use a screw system vertical filler to pack the powdered sugar.
These machines differ from sticky machines in that they are single-channel. The speed is low, but the weight of the packaging accuracy is high.
Fourth: Better to Consider Auxiliary Packing Equipment to Make a Whole Sugar Packaging Line.
Many applications require a product to be conveyed without degradation or damage. The degraded or damaged product can have serious implications for customers dissatisfied as well as unhealthy and unsafe. Using a bucket elevator in the packaging process of the product is paramount, it is essential to use a gentle handling bucket elevator.
1) Bucket Elevator
It needs to add an elevator and automatically feed the large bulk of sugar onto the packing machines.
2) End Product Conveyor
While belt conveyor for the end packed package is also needed and conveys the packed package to the secondary packing machine or by hand.
Fifth, You Need to Choose an Excellent Printing Machine
As we know, the data code printing on sugar packages must be done. While if use a printer that has trouble time by time, your sugar production line will stop. It will lose too much.
Therefore, you will find it’s very compulsory to have a good-performance printer. It will save you a lot of time out of downtime. We suggest using a high-speed and stable date-code printer.
TTO (Thermal-transfer-overprinting) is a quite good data printer for the sugar industry. You can edit information on the computer (touch panel) whatever you need before it prints on the sugar bags.

The sugar packaging machine is self-flow feeding for large dosing. While vibration feed for small dosings, such as 1kg sugar packaging. Requires artificial bagging, suitable for manufacturers who often change packaging specifications.
No matter what style of white sugar packaging machine you use, they all have the same characteristics. It has characteristics like accurate measurement, accurate filling, adjustable speed, ease of use, high efficiency, and intelligence. It’s also the advantage of sugar packaging machines. Five flavors of life, each flavor has its packaging machine, do you choose your packaging machine?
