The vacuum bagging system has a two-stage vacuum process. The product is first de-aerated at the filling point to minimise overall sack dimensions, and the process is then completed in the second stage, post de-aeration position further down the line, which finishes the conditioning process. The seal zone is then sealed using Arodo's own impulse sealing system.
