Galaxy VME1 External Vacuum Packaging Machine

Galaxy VME1 External Vacuum Packaging Machine

In the foodservice business, food spoilage isn’t just wasteful, it’s expensive! It can easily cost a business thousands of dollars each year, damaging profit and hindering business growth. Galaxy offers an affordable, user-friendly solution to help minimize the inconvenience and cost of spoiled product. The Galaxy VME1 external vacuum packaging machine makes preserving product easier than ever. It’s designed to seal bags of ingredients for extended storage - locking in freshness and flavor for later use. It can also seal bags for sous-vide cooking! Once the end of a bag is placed onto the seal bar and the lid is lowered, with just the touch of a button, the unit removes the air from the bag and seals it. If the product is especially delicate, use the pulse feature to vacuum out the air in intervals so as to not crush the product. And, if using a particularly thick and heavy-duty bag, select the extended seal option to ensure that the bag is sealed completely. Unlike a chamber vacuum packaging machine, this external unit is compact and lightweight. It also accommodates embossed vacuum bags of any length that are 12” wide or less. The width is determined by its 12” seal bar. The Galaxy VME1 external vacuum packaging machine is designed for light-duty applications, perfect for low-volume businesses and convenient, on-the-go operation. Plus, to offer the best deal available, the Galaxy VME1 machine is the most affordable commercial unit available on the market. Featuring the same functions and providing the same seal capacity as the VacMaster Pro 110 and other competing models, the VME1 costs a fraction of the price, saving your business more money to truly maximize profit – and who doesn’t want to save money? Effective, efficient, easy to use, and priced to beat, the Galaxy VME1 external vacuum packaging machine is a no-brainer for any operation.

Customer questions about this product

How do I determine if a vacuum machine bag will work on my machine?

If you have a chamber-type machine: Buy a chamber-type bag (mesh-less design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be shorter than the seal bar on your machine, and the bag must also fit inside your machine’s chamber.

If you have an external-type machine: You must buy an external-type, or "out of chamber" bag (mesh design). The open end of the vacuum bag must be shorter than the seal bar on your machine.

All of our vacuum machine bags list how large the open end is, and whether you can use them with external or chamber machines, in the content.

  • Arrange by 
    I use these in my VacMaster Pro 350 and they work just as well as the VacMaster branded bags, but at a lower price. I do feel that they might be a tiny bit thinner, despite the specification stating that they're the same, but they work just fine.
    Great vacuum bags. We bulk make sausages and go thru a lot of bags . vacuum sealing greatly extends the life of the product these hold a seal well
    This 50 foot roll a vacuum bag is awesome you can make as big of a size or smaller size baggies you need so you’re not wasting the premade sizes what a great deal
    We use our VacPak-It 8" x 50' Roll of Full Mesh External Vacuum Packaging Bags - 3 Mil to package bulk hop pellets for our home brew supply store. It creates a tight seal and keeps our products fresh.
    In general, the vacuum bags are a pretty good deal. They work fine and are a bit cheaper than the Vacmaster branded stuff. The mesh side is a bit different, in that it is more heavily textured, but it doesn't seem to negatively impact performance (though I do suspect that the mesh side is a tiny bit less sturdy for it.) The other thing to be aware of is that some units ( including the Vacmaster 275) will only take 50' rolls,l so you'll have to manually cut half the roll in those cases.
