Flow Wrapping

When it comes to your next contract packaging project, go with the flow! Flow wrapping helps to protect products and extend their shelf life. This automated production line process involves wrapping products in a continuous sheet of material, which is then sealed at the edges. Its flexibility and low cost make flow wrapping one of the most popular types of secondary packaging for a wide range of consumer goods.

Flow-wrapped products can also be stored for longer periods of time without taking up much space. In addition, flow wrapping can provide a barrier against moisture, dust, and other environmental hazards. It also allows for a clear view of the product, which can be helpful for marketing purposes. When done correctly, flow wrapping can provide an attractive and effective way to package products.

How Does Flow Wrapping Work?

Flow wrapping is vertical bagging’s close cousin. While vertical bagging uses Vertical Form Fill and Seal (VFFS) automation, flow wrapping is also known as Horizontal Form Fill and Seal (HFFS). The process begins with a long roll of film fed horizontally through a machine. One end of the film is heat-sealed closed, forming a pouch. The pouch is filled with the product and the other end is sealed. The entire process is automated, making it quick and efficient.
