25. Does Square Bottom Paper Bag Help in Branding?

A person carrying a plain paper bag in one hand and printed in the other, which one will you notice first?

Yes, the printed one.

The square bottom paper bags are a multitasker in this regard. They carry not only objects but also do free-of-cost branding.

Sometimes, even without the name or logo, a specific pattern, bag color, or handle style can speak of a company’s name.

MTED facilitates you with square bottom paper bag making machines that produce small, medium, and large-size paper bags. You can also avail of the inline printing, die-cut window, plastic window, and stripping facilities (on demand).

26. How Do You Calculate the Capacity of a Square Bottom Paper Bag?

A square bottom paper bag is more popular because it gives you space to keep things upright in it.

Our square bottom paper bag making machines can produce bags in different sizes. Apart from the length and width options, a gusset is an essential part of a square bottom paper bag.

Gusset size decides the capacity a paper bag will provide you (in terms of size). An increase in bottom width results in the wide opening of the paper bag.

figure 4 capacity of square bottom paper bags

Capacity of Square Bottom Paper Bags

MTED’s RZFD-450B model offers maximum bag bottom width that is 220mm.

We also have RZFD-550 model to do maximum bag width up to 550mm. More new models are coming up to meet the market demands.

The paper you choose to make a square bottom paper bag decides the paper bag’s capacity (in terms of weight). For example, if you are using kraft paper in your square bottom paper bag making machine, the bag has more capacity to lift the weight as compared to newsprint paper.

Grocery bags have more capacity to lift the weight as compared to bakery bags. So, the capacity of the square bottom paper bag is different in each industry.

27. Are the Square Bottom Paper Bags Leak-Proof?

No matter how thick the paper you choose to make square bottom paper bags, water and oil will damage the paper bag, resulting in leakage.

To protect your paper bag from oil and water leakage MTED presents a fully laminated square bottom paper bag making machine with window. It is an exceptional unit that provides you square bottom paper bags with full lamination. The plastic helps to prevent the leakage.

This is a perfect bag for carrying oil and water products. This unit is equipped with window cut and printing options.

28. How Much Weight can a Square Bottom Paper Bag Withstand?

The weight carrying capacity of a square bottom paper bag depends on certain features, like:

  • Square bottom paper bag gluing

MTED’s square bottom paper bag making machine is designed to use white latex glue for bottom pasting. White latex glue is a high-quality adhesive that provides excellent strength to the bag’s bottom.

For the center sealing of a square bottom paper bag, water-based adhesives are used. Good quality water-based glue will give excellent strength to the paper bag like water latex glue.

  • Quality of the paper

The type of paper you use for making a square bottom paper bag provides you with a weight carrying strength. Kraft paper is the best for making square bottom paper bags. The long and strong virgin fibres of kraft paper provide the paper bag with high-level mechanical strength.

Grocery bags depending on their size can carry weight ranging from 2 – 75 pounds.

MTED’s square bottom paper bags can hold up to 10kg weight. We add double layers to support the bottom of the bag. These bags are remotely used for carrying flour, sugar, etc.

Figure 6 Weight Carrying Capacity of Square Bottom Paper Bags

Weight Carrying Capacity of Square Bottom Paper Bags

  • Handle making

Handle making also plays a vital role in giving strength to the square bottom paper bags. Our square bottom paper bag making machine with twisted and flat handle unit ensures to glue the handle properly and fix it with the paper bag thoroughly.

The durability and strength of a paper bag increase with properly fixed handles. Both water-based glue system and hot melt glue system are used on the handle attaching. Our square bottom paper bag making machine with a D-cut handle also provides high-quality, durable paper bags.

How strong shall a paper bag be?

It depends on the paper bag size. The larger size of the square bottom paper bag gives you more space for goods, so the weight carrying capacity must be higher.

Different standard certification systems provide you with high-quality paper bags that can carry sufficient weight repeatedly.

EN13590:2003 is a European test standard for paper bag durability. Certifications mark the volume and the weight a paper bag can carry. It is always recommended to choose a tested and certified square bottom paper bag making machine for your business.

29. Square Bottom Paper Bags V.S. Plastic Bags

In the market, most commonly, we see two types of bags – plastic and paper bags. Let’s compare the specifications, pros, and cons of both bags.

Square bottom paper bags

  • The main difference between the two is environmental friendliness. The square bottom paper bag is biodegradable and decomposes rapidly.
  • Square bottom paper bags are recyclable. Recycle the paper and produce more paper products.
  • Square bottom paper bags are reusable; however, a paper bag’s durability is not much.
  • Square bottom paper bags take up more space as compared to plastic bags.

  • Plastic bag decomposition takes up to 1000 years.
  • Plastic bags are recyclable though it is hard to recycle them.
  • You can reuse your plastic bag several times.
  • The most commonly used plastic bags are not suitable to carry heavy objects.
  • Plastic bags can easily hold oil and water products without leakage.
  • Plastic contaminates our seafood sources.
  • Plastic bags cost less than paper bag.
  • The standard plain plastic bag does not appeal to the eyes.
  • There are not many variations in creating a plastic bag.

30. Why Choose a Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine Instead of a Plastic Bag Making Machine?

If you are new to the paper bag making industry and want to produce an in-demand product, a square bottom paper bag making machine is the best choice.

Due to the many advantages of square bottom paper bags, retailers prefer to use paper bags instead of plastic bags. You will get both style and comfort in square bottom paper bags.

The raw material you need for a square bottom paper bag making machine is more than a plastic bag making machine. Saving the environment and fulfilling the market requirement is more important than raw material pricing.

Plastic bags choke the drains, pollute oceans and lakes, disturb marine life, and produce harmful gases when burnt. We don’t want to become a part of all these negative effects on our natural resources.

38. Roll Feeding V.S. Sheet Feeding Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine?

The process of feeding paper in square bottom paper bag making machines is of two types.

  • A paper roll feeding machine
  • A paper sheet feeding machine

MTED manufactures square bottom paper bag making machines that support paper roll feeding units.

We use paper rolls as a raw material in the paper roll feeding machine. The width of the paper roll depends on the size of the paper bag. The maximum outer diameter of the paper roll is 1300mm and paper roll core diameter is 76mm.

The hydraulic system controls the loading and unloading of paper roll on the shaft. Electro-magnetic power brake is adopted to maintain continuous web tension control. It reduces the risk of paper breakage. Italy SELECTRA EPC system facilitates the automatic web alignment. It saves both your time and your paper material.

It has a single feeding frame. Paper web forms a paper tube, an automatic glue system glues it, and the cutter cuts the paper according to the paper bag’s desired size.

On the other hand, in a sheet feeding square bottom paper bag machine, paper sheets are used as a raw material. These sheets are cut according to the bag length.

In a fully automatic sheet feeding square bottom paper bag making machine, the sheets are automatically transferred to form a paper tube. After gluing the sides, the bottom formation is done.

Figure 21 Sheet Fed VS Roll Fed Paper Bag Machines

Sheet-Fed V.S. Roll-Fed Paper Bag Machines

Difference between Sheet-Fed and Roll-Fed Machines

Main functioning of the two machines are almost the same, however, a few differences between the two are as follows:

  • As the name suggests, the sheet-fed paper bag making machine uses sheets to produce bags. In comparison, roll fed paper bag making machines use paper rolls to make square bottom paper bags.
  • Cutters are used in roll feeding square bottom paper bag making machine to cut the paper tube into the desired length. In contrast, the sheets are cut into the desired size before feeding them into the sheet-fed square bottom paper bag making machine.
  • For a sheet feeding machine, you need to have separate cutters to cut the sheets, whereas, in roll feeding square bottom paper bag making machines, you are facilitated with inline sharp knives.
  • Production speed of a roll-fed square bottom paper bag making machine is higher than a sheet-fed paper bag making machine.
  • Sheet-fed machine requires more space than roll-fed machine.
  • Different paper material is used in both the machines.
  • Roll-fed machine is more popularly used with wider applications.

39. How Do Climate and Humidity Affect the Machine’s Operation and the Quality of Bags Produced?

Climate and humidity play a pivotal role in the operation of paper bag making machines and the final quality of the bags produced. Here’s a breakdown of their impact:

  1. Paper Material Behavior:
    • Humidity: High humidity can make the paper more pliable but can also lead to it becoming soggy or less crisp. On the other hand, low humidity can dry out the paper, making it more prone to tearing or cracking during the manufacturing process.
    • Temperature: Extreme temperatures, either too hot or too cold, can affect the paper’s tensile strength, making it either too brittle or too soft.
  2. Machine Operation:
    • Lubrication: High temperatures can cause the machine’s lubricants to thin out, reducing their effectiveness, while low temperatures can make them too viscous, hindering smooth operation.
    • Metal Expansion/Contraction: Machines are primarily made of metal, which expands in heat and contracts in cold. This can affect the precision of the machine, especially in processes where millimeter accuracy is crucial.
  3. Adhesive Performance:
    • Humidity: Adhesives used in the bag-making process might not set properly in high humidity, leading to weak seals. Conversely, in low humidity, adhesives might dry too quickly, not allowing for proper bonding.
    • Temperature: High temperatures can cause certain adhesives to become too runny, while low temperatures might prevent them from activating altogether.
  4. Print Quality:
    • Humidity: If bags are printed during the manufacturing process, high humidity can cause ink smudging, while low humidity can lead to static electricity issues, affecting print quality.
    • Temperature: Extreme temperatures can also affect the drying time of inks, potentially leading to smudging or uneven prints.
  5. Storage Considerations:
    • Storing paper in a controlled environment before it enters the production line is crucial. Fluctuations in humidity can lead to the paper either absorbing or losing moisture, affecting its behavior during manufacturing.
  6. Maintenance and Longevity:
    • Climate conditions can influence the frequency and type of maintenance required. For instance, machines operating in coastal areas might need more frequent maintenance due to salt in the air, which can accelerate corrosion.

To mitigate these challenges, manufacturers often recommend climate-controlled environments for paper bag making machines. This ensures consistent operation, reduces downtime, and guarantees the production of high-quality bags.

40. How Many Operators Are Needed for MTED Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine?

When we say it’s a fully automatic machine, we mean it. It’s a one-man-show from paper feeding to finished bag collection.

You don’t need many staff or operators to control the square bottom paper bag making machine. You need only one operator to feed the raw material, set the desired specifications on the control panel, and gather the finished paper bags.

Put in the length, width, bottom size, printing details, design details, and enjoy watching the machine doing the job for you.

It is a cost-effective machine because it requires little labour.

After the square bottom paper bag making machine has finished the bag-making process, finished bags accumulate on the delivery belt.

The finished bag accumulation is controlled by frequency. You can collect a specific number of bags by putting in the amount on your control unit. The machine will pause for a while between the two sets of finished bags.

It helps to collect and pack the paper bags easily, without the hassle of counting them.

Figure 22- Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine

Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine With  Flat Handle

41. Does the MTED Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine Have Automatic Bag Counting Function?

Yes, the MTED machine is all about your convenience.

The square bottom paper bag making machine counts the finished paper bags and accumulates them in sets. You need to put and pack them in a bunch without counting.

The finished bags accumulate on the delivery table. This table serves as counting and collecting unit.

You can set the desired quantity of paper bags per batch on your control panel. For example, if you set a quantity of 25 bags per batch, the delivery table’s conveyor belt will give a pause after every set of 25 bags.

It is helpful for the operator to collect and pack the bags easily. Automatic counting saves a lot of time.

MTED square bottom paper bag making machine has two types of delivery tables. The size of the delivery table is adjustable according to the paper bag size.

43. How to Calculate the Roll Paper Web Width on the Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine?

There are different sizes available in the market for the square bottom paper bags.

Do you need the same paper roll for each bag?

No, the width of the paper roll depends on the size of the paper bag.

Let’s suppose you have MTED’s square bottom paper bag making machine with inline Die-cut plastic window.

What size paper roll you need to produce bags out of it?

The specification of RZFD-330W says that it produces a bag with a width ranging from 120 – 330 mm. Its gusset width ranges from 60 – 180 mm.

Let’s roughly calculate the total paper width you may need.

2 x Bag width + 2 x gusset width + side gluing area = total width of paper web

It’s a very simple way to calculate the total width of paper roll you need for producing a specific sized paper bag.

The paper roll width for square bottom paper bag making machine with die-cut window ranges from 380 – 1040.

Figure 25: Calculating Paper Web Width of square bottom paper bag making machine

Calculating Paper Web Width

44. What’s the Gluing System of MTED Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine?

Gluing is an important part of the paper bag making process. In a simple square bottom paper bag, we need to glue the bag bottom and bag side. In a square bottom paper bag with the handle, we need glue for pasting handles also.

Double layer paper bag and a square bottom paper bag with a die-cut window need glue to stick the sheets together.

The paper bag’s strength depends on the paper type, and the glue we use – good quality glue results in better sticking.

How can you glue the paper bag?

Gluing System

MTED’s square bottom paper bag making machine is equipped with BAUMER original glue position detector and XLG original center-sealing glue gun.

A fully enclosed storage tank for water glue supports the gluing system of square bottom paper bag making machine. It circulates the glue automatically to avoid clogging. The glue level is inspected automatically by the machine.

A combination of valves spread the glue evenly on the square bottom paper bag’s sides and bottom. Cold glue is used to paste the sides and bottom of the paper bag.

After applying glue to the paper, it then rolls under the rollers to ensure the adherend’s firm sticking.

The bottom sealing takes place after tube formation and bottom opening. The glue compartment spread the glue evenly on the edges of the paper. It longitudinally spread the glue.

Paper bags suitable for carrying powdery material like flour, sugar, or powdered chemicals need proper sealing and pasting. For that reason, paper bags pass through the pasting process.

The automatic gluing system does not waste the glue, and the glue is easy to clean.

Figure 26 Gluing System of Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine

Gluing System of Square Bottom Paper Bag Making Machine

Plastic Window Sealing

For square bottom paper bags with a plastic window, the plastic film is joined with the paper bag through temperature regulated units.

The film passes through a certain temperature that allows the film to seal with the paper. Rollers are used to press the film firmly on the paper.

If you want, you can use water-based glue for pasting the plastic film with the paper bag.

Handle Pasting

Hot glue is used for pasting twisted, flat, or D-cut (patch) handle. MTED square bottom paper bag making machine uses a hot melt glue sprayer to distribute the glue and ensure perfect sealing evenly.

Glue – The Raw Material

MTED support water-based white latex glue. White latex glue has excellent sticking property. It is an excellent non-toxic adhesive with no odour.
