Meeting your high standards is at the core of what we do.
Unified Flex ensures the bag styles will be compatible with respect to the:
- Packaging Machinery
- Packaging Film
Why is this important to consider?
The characteristics of products are very different from one to another. Here are some examples:
1. Solid products:
Solid products can be either high density or low density. If the product is low density, considerations must be made to accommodate the bag style so the product can enter the bag without bottlenecking and the expected packaging speed can be achieved. Not all bag styles fill at the same rate and same speed. Packaging films/bags need to be compatible with the equipment and certain types of protective coatings on the films can raise challenges limiting the speeds of packaging.
Some products have high viscosity and are very sticky while some are free-flowing. Sticky products can be a challenge filling in various style of bags depending on the type of machinery used. Some packaging processes require long filling nozzles while some other use short filling nozzles. Physical and chemical properties of the liquids bring certain restrictions with respect to bag style and size.
Some powders are high density while others are low density. Dust is a major factor in packaging powdery products. Some low-density products do not settle right away in the bags and it can decrease the packaging speeds. Some powders may get in the cross seals of the bags, thus compromising the seal strength. Considerations have to be made to determine the correct bag style that will allow the process to run at desired speeds without compromising seal quality.
You will always be backed by the collaborative support from our technical experts throughout every step of the process.
