Flow wraps are the means of packaging and protecting a product with a flexible material supplied in rollstock format, providing low costs per pack. Items can be wrapped individually, in groups, on cards or in trays. The packages can be equipped with easy opening and reclosability features. In many market segments flow wraps have been a popular pack style for decades.

Horizontal flow wrapping is all about feeding and sealing
For horizontal flow wrapping, three different types of product feeding options can be distinguished: manual, semi-automatic and fully-automatic. The Pack 102 is available with manual or semi-automatic feeding. Depending on your desired production output, the Pack 102 can be configured with three different infeed lengths that offer manual loading space for up to three employees.
One key component of a horizontal flow wrapper are the sealing elements and profiles to produce the longitudinal seal on the bottom of the package as well as the end seals. Various films with different barrier properties can be used, for example for enhanced aroma protection. The Pack 102 is capable of handling cold seal films as well as heat seal films for applications where a hermetically sealed package is required for extended shelf life. For batch coding and expiration date printing, printing equipment can be integrated. Syntegon offers a test lab service to create hand or machine wrapped sample packages, test film structure sealability and product handling characteristics.
