Step Two: Mixing
In this step, the automatic Lavazza coffee capsule filling machine pour all the ingredients into the cylinder succedding the above step. This doing can give a full and stiring and mixing to all materials.
Step Three: Packaging Specification Designing
Inputting the packaging specifications in the programmable logic controller (aka PLC). The packaging specifications include: The quantity of coffee required in each of coffee capsules; The size of the finished coffee capsules; The packing velocity of coffee pod machines.
Step Four: Making Coffee Capsules
Once the receipt of the relevant command, the machine will produce the coffee capsules into the specified sizes. The machine will push the capsules to the filter to form a module. In the course of such a process, the filter also forms small discs of filter paper. And then, the coffee capsule filling machine puts the coffee capsules to the welding station and sticks the filters to the coffee capsules.
Step Five: Coffee Filling
After the implementation of the above step, the machine will take the coffee out of the cylinder. During the filling process, the funnels and nozzles will automatically change without the intervention of the manned labor.
Step Six: Coffee Capsules Weighning
Shortly after filling, the machine will put the coffee capsules to the load cell. At this moment, the load cell will measure and ensure the right amount of every coffee capsule. You could directly check the all products information in the front of the touch screen. Once the appearance of the deviation, you should immediately adjust the multitrack auger dispenser.
Step Seven: Sealing Coffee Capsules

And now, let us a minute knowledge of how are Lavazza coffee pods manufactured in factory.
Step One: Raw Materials Preparation
Making ensure the coffee pods machine in the normal condition. Apart from that, you should ensure that the raw materials are also in place. The raw materials are mainly the freshly-grounded coffee powder, decaf and other auxiliary materials.
Step Two: Dosing and Taping
Just in a couple of seconds, your freshly-grounded coffee powder will be dosed into the moulds in different amount servings. The practical amount of servings can be rationed as your needs. For example, you could control the machine to dose the coffee powder into the moulds as the 7g, 10g, 14g servings and then get them tamped.
Step Three: Packaging Specification Designing
Inputting the packaging specifications in the programmable logic controller (aka PLC). The packaging specifications include: The quantity of coffee required in each of coffee pods; The size of the finished coffee pods; The packing velocity of coffee pod machines.
Step Four: Enclosing in Coffee Pods
After the implementation of the above step, the tamped and molded tablet of coffee is then placed between 2 sheets of roll-fed filter paper. These two sheets of paper will wrap around the coffee with the movement of the roller. Next, the edges will be fused. Finally, the pod shape comes into being. During such a process, there will be a great saving on the manned labor.
Step Five: Measuring Coffee Pods
Shortly after filling, the machine will put the coffee on the load cell. At this moment, the load cell will weigh and ensure the right amount of every coffee pod. You could directly check the all products information in the front of the touch screen. Once the appearance of the deviation, you should immediately adjust the multitrack auger dispenser.
Step Six: Coffee Pods Sealing
Each individual pod is then placed between the 2 sheets of aluminum foil and sealed along its 3 sides by the coffee capsule filling and sealing machine. The machine will pass the nitrogen over the unsealed head space. The pod will be filled with the nitrogen so as to extract all of the oxygen.
By doing so, the freshness of the grounded coffee can be preserved to largest extent. And then, the machine will seal the 4th side, namely the notch that pours the nitrogen. As to now, the pod is completely sealed and protected in the layer of foil until it is reopened by the customer.
