How a horizontal flow pack packaging machine works
A horizontal flow pack machine is particularly suited for packaging fresh products, but also other types of products such as miscellaneous objects, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
To proceed with this type of packaging, the products are placed inside a single packaging film (which can be made of various materials, such as BOPP, shrink film, OPA /PE laminates, etc.), which is then sealed in three points: two transverse and one longitudinal seal.
The result will be an aesthetically appealing but at the same time safe packaging. Therefore, the product will be suitable for placing on display shelves, retaining all its organoleptic properties.
As mentioned, a flow pack packaging machine is ideal for businesses that require high production flow rates, without foregoing precise, quality packaging.
Horizontal or vertical packaging machine: what is the difference?
Packaging machines can be vertical or horizontal. The most suitable choice depends on the type of product to be packaged.
Horizontal packaging machines, such as the models offered by minipack®-torre, are suitable for packaging solid products, mainly in single packages, both for food and non-food products, such as:
- Baked products;
- Brioches, candy, sweets, bars, etc;
- Individually packed pills or tablets;
- Miscellaneous objects, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, etc.
Instead, vertical packaging machines are ideal for liquid, gelatinous or thick products, such as creams, powders or granulated products that are conveniently packaged by using the principle of gravity.
