Flow wrapper is a packaging machine that horizontally forms a film around a product, and seals the package from both ends. Flow wrapper is built on a stainless steel frame, making it ideal for film packaging for food products, toys, personal care, industrial, and contract packaging applications. Flow wrappers work with cold sealing films, when the product is temperature-sensitive. Flow wrapper films are majorly used to wrap food products at high speed and are comparatively more expensive than heat sealing films. Flow of the film is horizontal and different types of sachets, pouches, and packs can be manufactured on a flow wrapper machine. Flow wrapping films are flexible in nature and typically heat-sealable.
