Single-dose flexible packaging has become a versatile solution for a wide range of products, including liquids, pastes, granules, solids, and powders. In this article, we’ll delve into the world of single-dose packaging for powder products, which present unique challenges due to their sensitivity to factors like humidity and temperature. To meet these challenges, INVpack offers a range of single-dose packaging machines that ensure reliable and precise dosing, making them ideal for pharmaceuticals, nutritionals, food products, and more.
The Complexity of Powder Packaging
Powder products encompass a diverse range of goods, from pharmaceutical medications to nutritional supplements and everyday kitchen staples like cocoa and coffee. However, packaging these powders can be a complex task due to their susceptibility to environmental conditions, particularly humidity and temperature, which can lead to issues like caking and spoilage.
Achieving precise and reliable dosing for powder products requires specialized technology and equipment. INVpack’s various models of single-dose packaging machines are designed to address these challenges while catering to a wide range of production needs. Whether you require stick packs or sachets, INVpack offers custom solutions tailored to your specific product.
Selecting the Right Powder Doser
Central to the success of single-dose powder packaging is the selection of an appropriate powder doser. Depending on the granulometry of the product, INVpack provides three main dosing options:
- Auger Filler: Auger fillers are ideal for fine and uniform powders. They use a rotating screw mechanism to precisely measure and dispense the powder into each package.
- Cup Filler: Cup fillers are suitable for coarser powders or products that are less free-flowing. They employ a cup-like container to scoop and dispense the desired amount of powder.
- Sliding Dice Dosing System: This system is designed for products with irregular granulometry. It uses sliding dice-like elements to ensure accurate dosing.
Expert Guidance and Testing Facilities
INVpack understands that choosing the right single-dose packaging machinery is a critical decision. To assist customers in making informed choices, INVpack has a dedicated team of experts with extensive experience in the field. These experts consider various factors, including your product’s characteristics and production requirements, to recommend the ideal single-dose packaging machine.
To further ensure the suitability and efficiency of their solutions, INVpack offers testing facilities, including a clean room. Here, environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature can be precisely controlled and replicated. Product samples provided by the customer are then used to simulate the packaging process. This rigorous testing allows INVpack to evaluate the best packaging option based on all relevant factors.

With a commitment to precision, reliability, and customization, INVpack’s machines are designed to meet the unique challenges posed by powder packaging.
