Packaging Vacuum Pump Applications 

Elmo Rietschle is a trusted name in the packaging industry, offering vacuum pumps that redefine performance standards. Learn more about the applications we serve below. 

Air Cushion Machines

Film tubes are inflated with compressed air and welded together to form cushions. These cushions can be used as protective filling material.

Blister Machines

Vacuum is used in forming cavities, securing products, aiding in the sealing process, deaeration, and quality control.

Filling and Closing Units

Chamber machines - Generating a vacuum and sealing the bag, feeding inert gas, and then sealing the bag. Rolling machines - In the sealing tool the air is extracted and if necessary modified atmosphere is admitted. The final step is sealing the recipient.


For vacuum forming, an additional pump is needed at that part of the machine.

Non-food packaging

When packing products, before sealing a vacuum pump would be used to evacuate the air from the packaging. Correct packaging provides the best transportation protection and ensures that products such as electronic parts, pharmaceuticals, etc, can be shipped to the customer aseptically and free of dust.

Production of paper bags

The L-Series is used for folding paper bags.

Reduction of transport volume

Vacuum packaging of clothes. Brand-new clothes are shrink-wrapped to be able to charge trucks and containers to maximum capacity.

Tray sealing

Generating a vacuum and sealing the bag or Feeding inert gas and sealing the bag afterward.

Trim removal

The film strips that are cut off are sucked into a container with our radial fan range CEVF. The collected film strips can be recycled.
