Packaging Equipment Automation: Flow Wrapping
The demand for more flexible packaging, like flow wrapping, continues to rise and when you factor in the benefits, it’s easy to see why. 71% of surveyed Americans prefer flexible packaging materials. Demand this high is changing how manufacturers are packaging their products.
Multi-film flow wrap heat seals your product in a flexible film. This means that your product now has the potential for a longer shelf life.
Heat sealed packaging means a safer product for consumption. It’s also a cost-effective solution for your business.
Why you should use flow wrap
There are many advantages to using flow wrap that product manufacturers and distributors are enjoying right now and you should too.
- Fast, reliable packaging automation
- Cost savings
- Attractive end product
- Longer product shelf-life
You’ve heard the old adage, “time is money”. That is even more true in business. There is little room to dabble in unfamiliar territory. Hyperfocus is the key. To help us do that, automation has answered the call and brings with it a bounty of advantages that are hard to ignore.
Flow wrapping technology is the process of horizontal packaging. It packages products of any shape and size in clear or printed polypropylene film. Flow wrap provides an accurate, rapid packaging succession. That means a higher through-rate and more product out the door.
Depending on the flow machine you choose, you can expect film runs of up to 2,000 pieces per minute. That’s flow wrappers hard at work so you can focus on what’s more important.
Boost your business with high yields and airtight seals
Do you have a need for speed? With flow wrapping automation, high yields mean less labor on your dime and more product on the line. Another advantage with flow wrapping is how you ‘seal the deal’. What we mean is, flow wrapping provides an airtight seal for your products and that means a longer shelf-life, a fresher product, and a happier customer. Fresher is always better and that can mean an increased demand and, ultimately, more money for your books. Ka-ching!
We love that sound. We also love what it means for your business because when you’re successful, we’re successful. So, Innovative Packaging Company (IPC) is here to help boost your business in any way that we can.
