What Are Thermoformers?

Thermoformer machines are automatic horizontal packaging machines that form packs within the machine’s frame using a top and bottom reel of film. During operation, the bottom film is shaped, forming an open container or pack. Product is then placed in the pack utilizing the available loading area. The packs, now ladened with product, advance to a sealing station where vacuum is drawn to remove the air and, if necessary, add gas for modified atmosphere (MAP). The top film seals a lid over the packs and the individual packs are separated in the cutting station.

 

Depending on the material used, packages can be flexible or rigid. Our thermoformers are suitable for vacuum pack, skin pack, and MAP technology, and the ideal solution for both food and non-food products.

Why Incorporate Thermoformers into Your Production Process? 

Thermoforming gives you more versatility than many other types of packaging options such as a dedicated tray sealer or flow wrap solution.

.

With thermoformers, you can vacuum pack, skin pack, or employ MAP technologies in addition to simple flexible packs or tray seal lids – all on the same equipment. In addition to versatility, thermoformers also provide you with other benefits to help you improve production, lower costs, and get a higher Return on Investment (ROI) over time:
