With the feature of incredible versatility, flow wrappers have become a ubiquitous packaging tool that are used in so many business fields around the world. Since the flow wrapping machines can be configured for versatile applications, they have become the mainstay of countless packaging lines. From the small candy bars to bigger size metal pipes, these packaging machines create attractive, protective packaging for everything in the world.
Horizontal flow wrappers perform three individual tasks in one fluid and continuous operation. From a roll of material, they form bags that wraps around the products, seal the bag on three sides and discharge the finished package. The packages are highly protective, consistent in size and shape, and visually attractive. The packing speed can be ultra fast with proper configuration.

Our flow pack machine and flow wrapper packaging machines can be customized to match each customer’s specific needs, and deliver maximum production flexibility and efficiency at each performance level. Every model is available in different versions with a large range of options for the packaging of food and non-food products. We can offer flow wrap packaging solutions from 60 ppm to 1200 ppm (Packs per minute), from manual load to fully automated packaging solutions.

Flow wrapper 2 main types

There are 2 main types of flow pack machine, we can easily tell the difference by wrapping film infeed direction. Basicallly, there are no fundamental differences between the 2 types, but still the performance are different when handling various products with different features.

Ordinary Flow wrappers

horizontal flow wrapper

Ordinary flow wrapper is the type of flow pack machine that the packing film is fed from upper of the machine, and wrap the products from top to bottom direction.

This type of flow pack machine is commonly used for normal products with regular shapes, light-weight, no-deformation, non-sticky, such as candies, breads, fruits, biscuits, products in trays, etc.

Inverted flow wrappers

Inverted flow wrapper is another type of flow pack machine that the packing film is fed from bottom of the machine, and wrap the products from bottom to top direction.
Inverted flow wrappers are designed for hard to handle products that cannot be ordinarily handled on a conventional upright wrapper, products with irregular shape, too soft products, high-weight products, sticky products, etc, including hardware, air fresheners, catheters, coffee filters, and licorice.

Rotary motion sealing and box motion sealing

Sealing system is another main difference in flow wrappers, commonly there are 2 types of sealing system: rotary motion seaing and box motion sealing.
Rotary motion sealing is optimized for high speed flow pack, and for smaller products. In packaging of candies, the speed can be up to 1200 packs/minute.
Box motion sealing system provids longer sealing time. Due to the additional dwell time they can seal thicker wrapping materials, giving the product a higher quality seal. They are better suited for taller products, heavy products and for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), as they can provide airtight seals. With box motion sealing, the packing speed is slower.
