Common Packaging Methods
Standard Packaging methods that involve moving bulk ingredients and powder are:
- Pallet Wrapping
Pallet wrap is a plastic film most commonly made from linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). The manufacturing process involves heating and compressing resin (the small pellets of plastic material) at a specific temperature according to the viscosity required.
- Sachet Bag Packaging
Sachet bags easily hold single-dose powders or liquids for the sample or travel purpose. Sachet pouches are also preferred for the food and medical industries because they can preserve foodstuff and pills well in a compact and economical bag.
- Cello Wrapping
Cello wrap, or cellophane, is a quality packaging material used to wrap several products such as perfume boxes and candles. A thin filmy layer of biodegradable cellophane is wrapped around the product; loose edges are sealed by heat and cooled to form a solid, customer-friendly closure.
Other cooking packaging methods include Canning, Cartoning, Blending, Pouch Filling, Stick Packaging, Blister Packaging, Fractional packaging, Automatic filling and sealing, FIBC Discharge and Filling, Pre-Made Pouch Filling, etc.
