Product packaging

Types of packaging

Packaging reliably protects products from any exposure and allows for complete automation of the packing process. The existing types of soft consumer packaging are made from single- and multi-layer polymer films and composite materials.

Modern technologies of product packaging, using film or composite materials and executed with high-performance packaging machines, provide products packaging, sealing and stacking in a shipping container. A package made of colorfully decorated polymer films is very aesthetic and attractive. It can contain the information on the product designation, and method of its use. The packed product itself gains a competitive advantage.

The most common soft consumer package includes the following types: package with a housing, made in the form of a sleeve, having the solid or seamed bottom of various configurations and an open flapper (with the tongues or without them). The most common methods of package production are welding, gluing, stapling, etc. Single-layer films made of PE, PP, PVC.PS and copolymers of styrole, polystyrene, nylon, and a variety of multi-layered composite films are used for soft consumer packaging manufacture.

Combined consumer packaging includes a combination of polymeric materials with paper, paperboard or foil. This package ensures long shelf life and high consumer properties of packaged products. This type of packaging includes "flow" packaging (applying a polymer melt directly on the packaged product), "skin" packaging, using shrink films (second skin, when the product is placed on a cardboard and is covered with a shrink wrap. The packaging is heated and the film shrinks, tightly fitting the product).

The market of packaging machinery offers different technical solutions and not many of them deserve special interest. The package, correlating with the uncompromising quality, creativity and new solutions in the packaging technology is always a winner.

Anton Ohlert cooperates with leading manufacturers of packaging machines and offers the most advanced technologies and equipment that meet the criteria specified and solve possible challenges of products packing.
