Flow Wrapping machine
Flow wrapping, also sometimes referred to as pillow packing, pillow pouch wrapping, horizontal bagging, and fin-seal wrapping, is a horizontal-motion packaging process used to cover product in clear or custom-printed polypropylene film. The finished package is a flexible packet featuring a crimped seal on each end.
The flow wrapping process is achieved by using flow wrapping machines, which are designed and manufactured to package a wide range of products to achieve varying aesthetic looks and feels. Using these machines, the following operations occur:
Placement of the products on an infeed conveyor belt
Transportation of the products to the forming area
Wrapping of the product(s) with sealing material
Mating of the outer edges of the material along the bottom
Creation of a tight seal between the mated edges using pressure, heat, or both
Movement of the products through rotating cutter edges or end seal crimpers to seal both ends and separate individual packets from one another
Discharge of the packaged products for storage and/or further packaging operations
A cartoning machine or cartoner, is a packaging machine that forms cartons: erect, close, folded, side seamed and sealed cartons.
Packaging machines which form a carton board blank into a carton filled with a product or bag of products or number of products say into single carton, after the filling, the machine engages its tabs / slots to apply adhesive and close both the ends of carton completely sealing the carton.
Cartoning machines can be divided into two types:
Horizontal cartoning machines
Vertical cartoning machines
A cartoning machine which picks a single piece from stack of folded carton and erects it, fills with a product or bag of products or number of products horizontally through an open end and closes by tucking the end flaps of the carton or applying glue or adhesive. The product might be pushed in the carton either through the mechanical sleeve or by pressurized air. For many applications however, the products are inserted into the carton manually. This type of Cartoning machine is widely used for packaging foods, daily chemical products (soaps and toothpastes), confectionery, medicine, cosmetics, sundry goods, etc.
A cartoning machine which erects a folded carton, fills with a product or number of products vertically through an open end and closes by either tucking the end flaps of the carton or applying glue or adhesive, is called an end load cartoning machine.
Cartoning machines are widely used for packaging toothpastes, soaps, biscuits, bottles, confectionery, medicine, cosmetics, etc., and can vary based on the scale of business.
