Specialist bagging systems

03 July, 2009 | Supplied by: Windmoeller & Hoelscher Australasia Pty Ltd

Despite the availability of highly sophisticated silo logistics, bags continue playing an important role in the distribution of bulk goods. Especially for applications involving small batches or the packaging of demanding products, the manufacturers of food tend to rely on bags because of their flexible use. When it comes to selecting the appropriate bagging system, the properties of the products to be packaged need to be taken into account. Free-flowing products such as vitamin powder make other demands on the bagging technology than do heavy flowing and/or powdery and dusty products such as starch. It is for this reason Windmöller & Hölscher has released Topas and Opal, two different form-fill-seal packaging systems specially geared to these applications.
