Water bottle packaging is one of the most classical applications of bundle packaging. They are constantly before our eyes, sometimes we curse them when we have to carry water bottles up and down the stairs at home. This article explains how this specific packaging process takes place.
How water bottles are packaged
Packaging with the sleeve wrapper machine is the production step that precedes the palletisation of bundles and their shipment to the large-scale retail chains.
During this passage the bottles, once at the packaging machine, are divided into groups (generally to create 4 to 6 bottle packs) and then wrapped with shrink film, forming the so-called bundle. The bundles are, therefore, ready for the application of the handle with which to transport the water bottles to their destination.

This type of packaging not only allows you to have a more tidy warehouse, but carries several advantages:
- It allows to comfortably carry more bottles at the same time;
- Invites the customer to buy more bottles together, instead of a few at a time;
