What Should I Think About When Choosing VFFS Knives?

High-quality vertical form fill seal knives are essential for avoiding quality problems with your bagged packages. Blades that wear out prematurely can cause quality control issues, or even interrupt production, costing you quite a bit of time and money.

It’s important to consider a few crucial factors when choosing a partner for VFFS knives.

  • The quality of the VFFS Knives – Perhaps the most important factor in choosing VFFS knives is using a high-quality, durable knife that can maintain sharpness and durability for hundreds of thousands of packaging cycles. While choosing an inexpensive knife may save you money in the short-term, low-quality knives require changing more often, and can even cause manufacturing delays and defects. 
  • The turn-around time and in-stock capabilities of your VFFS machine knife partner – It’s essential to always have a good stock of VFFS knives available, both at your factory and from your VFFS machine knife partner. You should choose a partner who can quickly manufacture custom knives with a low turn-around time, and keep a large stock of knives prepared for you to order.
  • Expected ongoing support – To be truly satisfied with your VFFS knives, you need to be able to get support after installation – and get quick and knowledgeable responses about questions or issues related to your vertical form fill seal knives. This ensures that you avoid downtime.

Being able to quickly replace knives as they age and require replacement is essential – so choose a team that can assist you quickly. This is just as important as the quality of the blade!
