Front-loading pouch increases production efficiency

Front-loading pouch increases production efficiency
Shakoflex will display the FLZ pouch and other high-barrier flexible packaging during EastPack New York City June 11-13, 2019.

When packaging is at its value-added best, it may even help make production lines more efficient. Flexible packaging specialty company Shakoflex (Shako Flexipack Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai, India) asserts that its Front-Loading Zipper (FLZ) pouches allow higher levels of successful, seamless filling of packaging on “pickn'fil” equipment than other methods. It maintains that the design eliminates the risk of the zipper opening during automatic packaging that can also result in problems during transportation and distribution.

The company, which will be exhibiting in booth #2270 at EastPack New York City June 11-13, 2019, offers a vast array of options in pouches, bags and other high-barrier flexible packaging.

Shakoflex specializes in engineering films and laminating various films and foils to make optimized high-barrier packages using biaxially-oriented nylon, biaxially-oriented polypropylene, cast PP, polyester, polyethylene, aluminum foil, paper and other materials.

It supplies both premade packaging and rollstock manufactured using solvent-less dry laminations.

Among others, pouch and bag varieties include zipper, spout, hole, D-punch and air-vent standup pouches.

Package styles include flow-wrap films, vacuum pouches and high moisture- and oxygen barrier PVDC- or EVOH and PA/nylon substrates.  Color printing in up to eight colors either surface or reverse-printed is available.

Markets range from food (snacks, pet food, coffee/tea, candy) to pharmaceuticals to agricultural and more for dry, frozen, viscous and liquid product types.
