Flow Wrapping-Efficient Primary Packaging Solutions

A flow wrapping machine, also known as a horizontal flow wrapper or flow wrap machine, is a versatile packaging system used across various industries. These efficient primary packaging solutions create sealed packages around products using flexible materials like plastic films or paper.

Key Components of the Flow Wrapping Process

• Infeed System: Handles various product sizes and shapes

• Film Unwind and Tension Control: Guides packaging material

• Forming Shoulder: Shapes film around the product

• Sealing System: Creates fin seals and crimp seals

• Cutting System: Separates individual packages

• Outfeed Conveyor: Transports wrapped products
