24 May 2021

Fully automatic vertical packaging machine, whether from bag making, metering, or packaging are all done on the same machine. So, what kind of packaging film is suitable for vertical packaging machines?

1. It is suitable for composite packaging film of vertical packaging machine.

Composite packaging film is composed of multiple layers of films (generally divided into aluminum-plastic composite and plastic-plastic composite). Generally divided into two layers, three layers, four layers, five layers, etc., different structures have different melting points, so it is generally recommended that customers can provide the composite film to be used so that we can adjust the suitable temperature on the packaging machine. Aluminum-plastic composite film is widely used in food packaging, such as potato chip packaging.

2. PE packaging film (polyethylene film) suitable for vertical packaging machines.

PE film is softer than composite film, and the requirements for packaging machines are relatively high. It is generally necessary to install a special PE film device on the packaging machine. PE packaging films are generally used in plastic parts, and more building materials are packaged.

3. Suitable for non-woven packaging of vertical packaging machines.

In addition to plastic film, our packaging machine can also use non-woven film. Our customers who use non-woven fabrics are generally used for packaging of medicinal materials, such as wormwood bags or other Chinese medicinal materials, for bathing and foot bathing. Wait. The packaging of non-woven fabrics can be completed with ordinary sealing devices.

4. Water-soluble film (PVA) suitable for vertical packaging machines.

Water soluble film is not widely used on vertical packaging machines, but occasionally customers will inquire whether water soluble film can be packaged in our packaging equipment. First of all, water-soluble film, as the name implies, is a packaging film that can be dissolved in water. It is anti-static and degradable. It is a new type of environmentally friendly packaging material and should be a trend in the future. Water-soluble films are currently mostly used in the packaging of pesticides, cement additives, and medical washing bags. The requirements for the machine are also very high. If the debugging is not good, it is easy to cause wrinkles, winding, breaking and other problems.
