How flow-pack packaging works and when to use it

Flow-pack packaging stands out for its ability to make safe and aesthetically pleasing packages in a very short time

The procedure involves positioning the product directly inside the packaging film, which will then be sealed in three points: two transverse and one longitudinal seals. 

The result will be a package that is often defined as a “pillow” and which is normally used to package food and non-food products in a single package

With regard to the type of film used, this can be made of various materials: shrink film, BOPP, OPA /PE laminates, etc. This represents a great advantage since it makes this packaging machine even more versatile

With its features, a flow-pack packaging machine is in fact ideal for packaging a wide range of products, both food and non-food products. Among the most common are:

  • Candy, sweets, chocolate bars, snacks;
  • Dry baked products such as crackers, breadsticks, rusks, etc;
  • Miscellaneous objects;
  • Home care products, such as dishwasher tablets;
  • Pharmaceuticals;
  • Cosmetics.

Therefore, Flow-pack packaging is indeed ideal for safe packaging of products from very different sectors but which have one thing in common: packaging speed and high productivity.


The advantages of flow-pack packaging

In addition to the great versatility that we have already mentioned, a flow-pack packaging machine has numerous advantages. In fact:

  • The packaging is perfectly sealed and guarantees maximum safety in terms of the products’ properties;
  • Since the packages are rather eye-catching, they are perfect to put on public display;
  • The machine, in addition to ensuring extremely high packaging rates, is particularly resistant, a feature that makes it very reliable and durable;
  • It makes it possible to customise the packages with customer’s logos and text so as to create original but above all unique products.

In addition to having all these features, minipack®-torre flow-pack packaging machines stand out for two other important factors. In fact:

  • Production is entirely Made in Italy, a guarantee of reliability and quality;
  • Our packaging machines boast a very high level of technology. In fact, having a dedicated research and development laboratory, the minipack-LAB, enables us to study new solutions on a daily basis in order to make the machines increasingly more efficient and advanced.
