FLEXIBLE. RELIABLE. HIGH-SPEED.
GRANULAR & FREE-FLOWING DRY PACKAGER
Keep Product & Profits Flowing with the Reliable R-Pak.
When fast is what you need, the R-Pak series is where the industry turns for proven performance. Our flagship R-Pak modular system for small pouches is built with reliability and accuracy as a foundation, yielding inherently higher overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). The R-Pak filler horizontally forms, fills, and seals packages containing powder or granular product with high throughput utilizing continuous motion. With its small footprint and centralized controls, combined with a capability of a throughput of up to 6,000 units per minute for both free-flowing and non-free-flowing products, the R-Pak is the economical, reliable and adaptable system you need to increase your profitability.
GRANULAR — Sugar, salt, ground coffee, and similar types of materials
FREE-FLOWING — Low/zero-calorie sweeteners, ground black pepper, pre-packaged mixes (e.g. cake and gravy)
SPECIALTY — Non-dairy creamer, Parmesan cheese, crushed red pepper
- Film Unwind
- Slitter / Folder
- Seal Wheel
- Fill Wheel
- Top Seal / Packet Cut Off
- Start Up Reject / Inspection
- Retail Carton Loading
- Bulk Carton Loading
The proven performance & high-speed throughput of the adaptable R-Pak dry packaging system helps you maximize profitability & productivity.
- Easy to operate – The R-Pak offers a small footprint, centralized controls, minimal adjustments, and streamlined work load
- Easy to maintain – Durable, low-maintenance drive train and relatively few wear parts
- Computer-controlled – Efficiency is increased by the automation controller’s monitoring and management of product availability, sealing temperatures, film alignment correction, and bulk output handling
- High precision – Continuous motion with careful speed control makes pack weight as repeatable and consistent as the product being packaged
- Speed – 6,000 packs per minute depending on product and pack size

We now can retrofit older machines with new parts to match the speed and quality of new machines. To see if your machine is compatible for retrofitting, please contact us.
At Ropak, our focus is on more than just manufacturing quality high-speed equipment. Designing operator safety features into each machine is critical.
With our engineering team, safety is not an afterthought. We build the latest safety technology into the designs to minimize the hazards the moving parts pose to personnel on the floor. Our designers are incorporating safety systems into the automation controllers through networking capabilities. Not only does the use of advanced network technology increase the machine’s responsiveness to a hard stop command, it also reduces the time and cost for building the machines. For our customers, it’s a win–win situation: improved safety features and lower machine costs.
