Flow Wrapping

Why flow wrapping?

Flow wrapping, also referred to as horizontal form fill and seal (HFFS), is your versatile and cost-effective packaging technique for high-volume medical packaging operations.

.

The process wraps a product in a clear or printed Polyolefin, polypropylene, or laminate film, forming a 3-sided seal, light and flexible package. There are three broad types of flow wrapping you can choose from; form-fill-seal, shrink wrap packaging, and stretch film packaging. The type you choose will depend on your product characteristics and packaging goals.

Flow Wrapping is a Practical, Versatile Option

Flow wrapping is used in primary packaging of individual (flat or irregularly shaped) or grouped products, to bundle loose products for retail sale or shipping, as well as in secondary packaging operations to replace the carton. You can flow wrap a large variety of products from face masks to syringes and thousands of products in between.

.

Medical products such as surgical instruments and syringes can be sterilely wrapped. You can also flow wrap gowns, medical kits and more.
