Flow Wrapping, or Horizontal Form-Fill and Seal (HFFS) is the process of making a horizontal bag from a single roll of film. Heat is applied to the bottom and ends of the film to form a sealed, flexible package already filled with products. Flow wrap packaging is used for a variety of products from food and bake goods to regular household items and stationary.

Why Flow Wrap?
Why Flow Wrap?
Flow wrap is a versatile product used to wrap solid products in a protective seal or for unitizing lose products for retail. Available in both automatic and semi-automatic formats Crawford Packaging has the right flow wrap machine to fit your packaging needs.
Flow wrapped products benefit from an added layer of protection from outside contamination. This contamination can be in the form of dust, moisture or harmful UV rays. Flow wrapped products also benefit from less direct handling. This limits “pick through” damages that can occur at retail. Available in varying thicknesses and composition, Crawford Packaging has the flow wrap film that is right for your packaging solution.
Flow wrapped products provide excellent opportunities for increased branding. Clear flow wrap films provide customers with an unobstructed view of your products. Optimal for produce packaging, these clear films can increase product visibility and improve retail sales.
Flow wrap packaging machines offer a high speed, automated alternative to traditional bagging practices. Flow Wrap equipment is a perfect packaging solution for products packaging from speeds up to 70 packs per minute.
Flow wrapping equipment is easy to change over from one packaging size to another. The integrated conveyor systems are easily adjustable guides that adjust quickly to the needed width. Flow wrap film rolls use corrugated cores that make swapping film sizes simple. The on-board computer systems can store multiple pack specifications that can adjust trim lengths and belt speeds at the touch of a button.
