Title: A METHOD FOR ASSEMBLING FILLED PACKAGES
Abstract:
The present invention is a method to assemble filled packages together into a secondary package. This method comprises the steps of: pulling a film (1) around a forming shoulder (10) with a filling head (11) that forms a tubular configuration of the film in a vertical-form-fill-seal operation, sealing completely or partially the vertical edges (2) of the film, sealing the tubular formed film on the opposite end to the filling head (11) to form a bottom seal (3) and having an open bag representing a secondary package, filling the secondary package with more than one filled primary package, sealing the open end of the secondary package with the filled primary packages to form a top seal (4) and cutting the closed secondary package above the top seal.
