What Is a Horizontal Flow Wrapper?
Horizontal flow wrappers perform three tasks in one fluid, continuous motion: infeed and spacing of items, wrapping the film around the items, and then sealing and discharging the finished product. The packages need to be protective, consistent, and professional without sacrificing speed. Flow wrappers are often called form fill and seal machines.
Horizontal flow wrappers are widely used in a variety of industries including food, personal care, household products, and more.
How Does a Horizontal Flow Wrapper Work?
First, an in-feed conveyor spaces and delivers your products into a forming box. On machines with a rotary sealers, this forming box applies packaging film around the product. Then the film is sealed and cut, forming the bag.
Once this process is completed, the sealed product is ready to be boxed and shipped.
