I am here to give you all the helpful information you want to know about paper bag machines. Let’s begin.

1. How Does A Paper Bag Machine Work?

Paper Bag Machine Invention of Margaret E. Knight

Invention of Margaret E. Knight

The eco friendly paper bag machine’s history can be traced back to 1868, when Margaret the E Knight the inventor of the paper bag machine firstly brought it to the world.

The machine afterwards was developed to produce the square bottom paper bags.

Nowadays China has become a manufacturing center of paper bag machinery.

MTED company ranks as the leading supplier and manufacturer in China for innovation and expertise on various paper bag machinery, especially the fully automatic roll fed paper bag machines.

So what’s the eco friendly paper bag machine’s working mechanism?

From our paper bag machine videos, you will see the main working mechanism as below:

2. What is the Main Structure of Paper Bag Machine?

Simple or complex design, small or big size, the paper bag machine is normally built in the following main structure:

I. Paper Feeding Unit

Unwinder Unit of Paper Bag Machine

The paper feeder can be pre-stack feeder or roll paper unwinder.

The pre-stack feeder is used on the sheet fed paper bag machine.

And the roll paper unwinder is equipped on the roll fed paper bag machine for loading big roll paper.

II. Tube Forming Unit

Tube Formng Unit of Paper Bag Machine

The tube forming unit is the key part of a paper bag machine, which comes between the side gluing unit and bottom folding unit.

The paper tube is formed on this station according to your needed bag width and gusset size.

It’s not an easy job to make consistent paper tubes with the easy and fast operation, which does not leave any trace on the paper material.

However, MTED paper bag machine made it possible.

III. Bottom Folding Unit

Creased in vertical and horizontal lines, the paper material goes to the bottom opening and folding unit.

The bottom width is adjustable on the paper bag machine to make a range of bag dimensions on one machine.

We suggest operator training on the bag size adjustment if he does not have related experience before.

IV. Gluing Unit

Side Gluing Unit of Paper Bag Machine

Side Gluing Unit of Paper Bag Machine

There are two kinds of gluing systems frequently used on the paper bag machine.

They are water-soluble adhesive glue unit and hot melt glue sprayer.

Whatever glue unit, it’s of great importance to ensure the gluing uniformity synchronized with the machine running at variable speed.

And the glue system should be easy to control and clean to save the labor cost and material cost.

V. Driving Unit

17. How Is Paper Bag Machine Different From Plastic Bag Machine?

A Paper bag making machine works differently than a plastic bag making machine.

Paper Bag MachinePlastic Bag Machine
  • The Paper bag machine uses a paper roll to unwind and form a paper web.
  • Glue guns spray water-based glue to seal the paper bag sides.
  • The paper tube then passes through the cutters.
  • The cutters cut the paper bag according to preset length.
  • Paper bag bottom forming unit forms the bottom.
  • Gluing system glues the bag bottom.
  • The automatic counting unit counts the paper bags.
  • Finally, it is gathered on the accumulating table.
  • Printing takes place before paper tube formation. You can print variable designs with up to 6 colors.


  • Plastic for bags is made with polymer.
  • The extruder melts it into a soft molten state.
  • The heated polymer is then forced out via a circular die.
  • A blast of cooling air helps it to solidify quickly into polythene.
  • The polythene web is then wound to make a plastic roll.
  • The roll is then fed into the plastic bag making machine.
  • The plastic web is printed at this stage.
  • It can print up to 6 colors and variable designs.
  • After the printing, the plastic web moves further for other specifications like handle cutting and side sealing.

24. How Can I Use Printer in My Paper Bag Machine?

If you already have a paper bag machine without a printer, we will recommend having a stand-alone flexo printer. It is cost-efficient and will work along with your existing paper bag machine.

If you are new to the industry and want to buy a paper bag machine, we will recommend buying a paper bag machine with an inline printer.

Printed paper bags are more in demand when it comes to branding and style. So you can use both inline and stand-alone printers with your paper bag machines.

Classification of Printers

MTED manufactures three types of stand-alone flexo printers.

See the video:

Our printer can print in 1 – 6 colors. However, the 6-color flexo printer is usually used as a stand-alone unit.


  • Chamber doctor plate

25. How Much Weight Can a Kraft Paper Bag Hold?

First of all, let’s think about the usage of a paper bag. It is used in the food industry.

How much weight might an edible have?

It must be in ounces, ponds, or kg. In a grocery shop or supermarket, customers usually buy products from 5 – 10kgs (for monthly use). For example, 5 kg flour, 5 kg sugar, or 10 kg rice.

So our paper bags are ideal for this use. Our kraft paper bags can carry up to 10kg weight. The same goes for the paper shopping bags the retailers use in their supermarkets.

Now think about the pharmaceutical industry. In pharmacies, usually, small paper bags are used (block bottom/V bottom).

Customers show their prescriptions, and the pharmacist packs their desired medicines in a small paper bag. You don’t need to make heavy-duty paper bags for pharmacies (unless they demand it).

If you are making paper bags for the pharmaceutical industry and storing chemicals or soluble in bulk, you can use large-sized paper bags for this purpose.

However, if you need to carry more than 10kg, our multiwall paper bag making machine can provide you heavy-duty paper bags.

It produces paper bags with double or triple layers. Unlike a single-layer paper bag, it has two paper roll unwinders that work simultaneously to make a double-layered paper bag.

Similarly, if your client demands leak-proof paper bags, you can use our laminated paper bag making machine. It glues a plastic film inside the paper bag to make it leak-proof.

Now comes the retail industry. We go to the market to buy clothes, shoes, jewelry, and other households. All these things are easily manageable in a paper bag with a 10kg weight carrying capacity.

Or, else you can divide your belongings into multiple paper bags.

We can use a wide variety of paper types in our paper bag machine.

  • Plain or printed
  • Kraft paper (brown/white)
  • Card paper
  • Newsprint paper
  • Coated paper
  • Laminated paper

Kraft paper, also known as khaki paper and card paper, has strong and tensile nature. These two paper types can carry much weight and cannot rip off easily.

For printing purposes, we will recommend coated paper and newsprint paper. These two paper types give you precise printing results.

Laminated paper is appropriate for making oil and water-resistant paper bags.

For customized paper bags, you can use some other paper types as well, like:

  • Butter paper
  • Offset paper
  • Duplex paper (one side white, another side brown)
  • Art paper


The second thing you need for making your paper bag is the handle. MTED manufactures flattwisted, and D-cut handles making machines.

The advantage of handle making machines is that:

  • You are tension-free to go to the market and buy handles for your paper bags.
  • You can use the same raw material for your handles as well.
  • It is cost-friendly and user-friendly.


We use water-based adhesive and hot melt glue for paper bag side gluing, handle making, handle pasting, bottom pasting, and plastic film gluing.

We use white latex glue that is non-toxic, eco-friendly and possesses good adhesive properties.


For printing, we use flexographic inks. It is an eco-friendly ink that gives you precise printing results.
