Industrial Sachet Forming Knives: Everything You Need to Know and Why We Recommend Them


Packaging machines—they’re essential for a lot of industrial businesses like pharmaceuticals, electronics, and more. But each machine is unique, with its own set of parameters, needs, and specifications for production. One of those production elements, industrial machine blades, also have their own set of requirements—this is where Leverwood’s expertise comes in. From film wrapping to vertical form fill sealing (VFFS) and everything in between, we manufacture blades for many types of machines, but there is one in particular, we want to discuss today—sachet forming knives.

Here at Leverwood, we understand that packaging machine knives and blades are essential to performing superior and clean cuts to a variety of manufacturing industries. With that in mind, we wanted to discuss sachet forming knives in today’s post and why we recommend our blades for your machines.

What is Sachet Form Packaging?

Sachet packaging, also known as packets or four-sided seal pouches, is quite common in packaging machines. These pouches are formed by running packaging laminations through a VFFS or HFFS (horizontal form fill sealing) to seal all four sides of the packaging together.

Ketchup packets, alcohol wipes, sugar—all of these and more are typical examples of sachet packaging, but pouches can be used for an endless variety of applications. Most of the time, the material used needs to be resistant to tears, chemicals, moisture, and more. The pouches also usually have easy tear perforations to open them. We commonly create sachet forming knives for manufacturers that have all of these specifications and more to help streamline the high-speed packaging process for their business.
