Horizontal and Vertical Form Filling and Sealing Packaging Services
Form filling and sealing is an automated assembly line process that uses film (or other material) to produce a type of sealed pouch. As the machinery folds and seals the film into a pouch, it simultaneously fills in the product, thus creating a type of sealed bag that may contain any wet or dry product. There are 2 types of form fill and seal: vertical form fill and seal (VFFS), and horizontal form fill and seal (HFFS).
Vertical form fill and seal involves the sealing of product on a vertical plane, going from up to down in which ends are cut from bottom to top.
Horizontal form fill and seal involves the sealing of product by sliding on a horizontal plane in which ends are cut from side to side.
What are the advantages of horizontal and vertical form filling and sealing?
Faster production times.
Because the machinery for form fill and seal incorporates all stages of production automatically, the process is quick.
Can seal product without heavy or expensive packaging material.
Solids, dry or liquids can be packaged using vertical form fill and seal (VFFS).
