How flow wrapping has shaped the packaging world

Starting in the 21st century, there has been a huge boost in the use of automated packaging machines in the global food industry. Flow wrappers are one of the top packaging technologies that have been impacting this transformation, allowing a vast range of human tasks to be performed automatically with greater accuracy, efficiency, and speed. At Paxiom, we have partnered with ValTara Technology, an industry leader in the packaging sector that specializes in flow wrapping, a packaging solution for many especially in the bakery, fresh produce, and confectionery sectors. These packaging machines are also ideal for wrapping difficult and odd-shaped household and novelty products including sponges, napkins, paint rollers, cloths, candles, dusters–you name it.

How flow wrapping works

In essence, flow wrapping is when a product is packaged specifically by wrapping it in a film. Generally speaking, a wrapper consists of an infeed conveyor, a film feed station, a forming station, a cutting head, and the discharge station. The process then starts with the product placed on the infeed conveyor. This conveyor takes the product to the forming area where the film is waiting. In there, a film tube is formed around the product and a fin-seal is added. Both the product and film tube are moved to the cutting head, which makes end-seals and cuts the products into individual packages. Lastly, the packages are conveyed to the discharge area for further packing.

Paxiom for your flow wrapping choice

High-performance, heavy-duty construction, great reliability, and quick turnaround are all key requirements, alongside exceptional levels of technical support and sustained investment in the research and development department. We at Paxiom provide excellent technical support, as this is crucial when installing a flow wrapper to handle any teething problems. As such, it’s important to carefully consider which machine supplier to outsource your machines. Reliable ones are those that offer great customer service while also selling a comprehensive stock of machine spare parts.

Flow wrappers are highly versatile packaging machines that can enhance productivity, improve a product’s package presentation and performance, and secure the integrity of items, especially now with the increasing popularity of online shopping. Because of this, machine suppliers normally work closely with their customers to help them meet their desired production results when it comes to ease of use, efficiency, reliability, and hygiene.
