Machine for the production of medical pouches


SA-M HB Automatic high performace header bag making machine


The SA-M HB machine has been engineered and designed to produce a wide range of header bags, patch breathable bags, see-through bags and three side seal pouches, on one or two lanes. All the SA-M HB machines can run with different PE material thicknesses, coated and uncoated Tyvek® and combined materials, in order to guarantee high levels of production flexibility. In order to ensure a precise and high-quality sealing, each station is independently servo driven and controlled by state-of-the-art load cells, to constantly verify the sealing force and to guarantee a complete validation process. Furthermore, this solution allows the customers to set the machine independently (in terms of temperature, dwell time, force, etc.), thus reaching the best sealing quality without stressing the material.

The SA-M HB machine is offered in two sealing widths, 950 mm (37.4”) and 1250 mm (49.2”), to meet different customers’ requirements. The following products can be manufactured (according to the chosen configuration):

  • Header bags with both coated and uncoated Tyvek®
  • Header bags with both coated and uncoated Tyvek® and reinforcement
  • Breathable window header bags
  • Patch bags


ELBA is always focused on changeover time and, in order to drastically shorten it, the SA-M HB has been developed with a tool-less system that, together with some optional automations, makes the machine really profitable and characterized by a short payback period. The SA-M HB machine is entirely controlled by the Siemens Profinet® protocol, like the other SA-M machines.
