Flexible Film Solutions For Your Product Packaging Needs

Every business knows that packaging matters. It has to protect your product, showcase your branding, and catch the eye of consumers on a crowded shelf. But with so many packaging options, how do you decide what’s right for your business?

 

Flexible film offers a combination of protection, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness that makes it the perfect choice for a wide range of products. 

Flexible Film Packaging Essentials

Flexible film packaging encompasses a whole range of materials, from plastic films and foils to laminates. It’s exactly what it sounds like – flexible material that wraps and conforms to the shape of your product.

Key Benefits of Flexible Film

  • Protection: Protects your product from moisture, oxygen, light, and other threats to its integrity.
  • Branding and Marketing: Provides a canvas for your branding and product information, boosting visibility.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Compared to rigid packaging, flexible film solutions are generally more affordable to produce and transport.


BPX Solutions: Your Flexible Film Equipment Partner 

We understand that choosing the right flexible film packaging equipment is essential for achieving the perfect combination of product protection, aesthetic appeal, and streamlined operations. 

Our other company, BPX Solutions, provides you with an exceptional range of flexible film-wrapping solutions.

We offer a comprehensive range of machinery to help you achieve the perfect packaging outcomes, including:

 

Here’s a more detailed look into our flexible film-wrapping equipment:

L-Bar Sealers: The Foundation of Shrink Wrap Packaging

L-bar sealers are versatile machines that form the backbone of many shrink-wrapping operations. They work by creating a two-sided sealed pouch around your product.

This pouch is sent through a shrink tunnel, where heat causes the film to shrink tightly around the product, providing a classic, professional-looking package. Ideal for a wide range of products that need secure, tamper-evident wrapping.

 

BPX Solutions offers L-bar sealers to meet a wide range of production needs:

  • PP-1622HK (Semi-Automatic): Designed for heavy-duty use, this model delivers years of reliable performance with speeds up to 15 packages per minute. Its robust construction and Hot Knife Seal Technology are ideal for demanding environments. 
  • PP-1519 ECMC (Semi-Automatic Combo): This compact L-bar sealer and shrink tunnel combo offers a complete shrink wrap solution in a minimal footprint. Reach speeds sealing up to 12 packages per minute, perfect for low to medium-volume operations. 
  • Model 5545TBA (Fully Automatic): Upgrade from semi-automatic setups for increased efficiency and labor savings. This durable, user-friendly machine handles up to 25 packages per minute and boasts a large seal area. 
  • PP-5600 Combo (Fully Automatic Combo): Featuring Automatic Product Adjustment (APA), this L-bar sealer and tunnel combo maximizes productivity. Easily switch between package sizes with just a few selections on the control panel. 

 

Side Sealers: Unmatched Versatility for Products of All Lengths

Need to package products of varying sizes, including extra-long items? Side sealers offer incredible flexibility. They create a continuous tube of film that completely encloses your product, sealing along the side and then separating packages downstream. 

This makes them perfect for everything from single items to long, irregularly shaped products that wouldn’t fit on a traditional L-bar sealer.

 

BPX solutions offers both medium- and high-speed choices:

  • PP-5545TBH + PP-5030LX (Medium-Speed Combo): Automate your long or irregular product packaging with this side sealer and shrink tunnel combo, reaching speeds up to 60 packages per minute. It features a servo-driven system for smooth, precise operation. 
  • PP-5545TBJ + PP-5030LH (High-Speed Combo): This system is designed for maximum production, reaching speeds of up to 90 packages per minute. A servo-driven side sealer ensures precise, continuous motion operation for consistent seals. The integrated shrink tunnel offers a streamlined workflow. 

 

Shrink Tunnels: The Finishing Touch

After your product is sealed in shrink film, the shrink tunnel is where the magic happens! 

These specialized tunnels apply controlled heat to the film, causing it to shrink and conform tightly to the product’s shape. The result is a securely wrapped, visually appealing package that’s ready for display or shipping.

 

BPX Solutions provides the right tunnel to complement your sealing process, whether you’re working with a combo system or need a standalone solution:

  • Combo System Tunnels: The side sealer combos and the PP-1519 ECMC L-Bar combo all include high-performance shrink tunnels.
  • PP1808-28 (General Purpose): This versatile standalone tunnel delivers reliable performance for a wide range of shrink-wrap needs. It features durable construction, user-friendly controls, and adjustable settings to accommodate different film types and product sizes. Additionally, this model is available in various sizes to perfectly suit your specific application requirements.

Flow Wrappers: Individual Packaging with Ease

If you need to individually package products, especially small, delicate, or oddly shaped ones, flow wrappers streamline the process. 

They envelop each item in a custom-sized film pouch, then seal it on three sides. This provides excellent product protection and a neat presentation that’s perfect for retail environments or for grouping items together for sale.

 

BPX Solutions offers options for both speed and handling:

  • C-Series (Inverted Horizontal Flow Wrapper): This series excels at handling products that are difficult to transfer, with speeds up to 100 packages per minute. The unique inverted design adds both stability and convenience to the wrapping process.
  • S-5547 (Horizontal Servo Flow Wrapper): This speed dynamo can reach up to 250 packages per minute! The servo-driven system ensures precision and consistency for high-volume runs 

 

Poly Bundlers: Simplify Grouping Products

Bundle multiple products together quickly and efficiently with poly bundlers. These machines use film to create a “sleeve” around a group of items, securing them together for streamlined handling and storage. 

They’re a great way to create multi-packs, promotional sets, or simply to bundle products for easier distribution. Poly bundlers are especially useful for packing up bottled products and drinks, streamlining operations in the beverage industry.

 

Here’s what we have:

  • PP-6030Z + PP-6040M (Fully Automatic): Automate your bundling process and boost efficiency with this fully integrated sleeve wrapper and tunnel system. It offers speeds of up to 15 packages per minute, seamlessly handling multiple products and reducing manual labor. Ideal for streamlining operations and increasing throughput

BestPack Shrink Wrap Products: Enhance Protection and Visual Appeal

BestPack, with over 30 years in the packaging industry, understands the importance of high-quality shrink-wrap film.

Partnering with leading film manufacturers, we offer exceptional shrink wrap products, FDA and USDA-approved, to elevate your packaging and protect your products effectively:

 

Here’s what we offer in this area:

Quick Shrink-201 (General Purpose Multilayer Shrink Film)

This is a more budget-friendly option that still provides excellent clarity and a nice shine. It’s strong enough for most jobs and works well with many different shrink-wrap machines. Think of it as the reliable workhorse that gets the job done at a good price.

Quick Shrink-IR (High-Performance Crosslinked Shrink Film)

Think of this as the heavy-duty option. It’s super clear, like a high-definition window, so your product looks fantastic. While thinner than some other shrink film options, Quick Shrink-IR offers exceptional strength and tear-resistance due to its specialized crosslinking process. This makes it ideal for delicate items or those with sharp edges. Plus, it works well with a wide range of shrink-wrap machines, so it’s a versatile choice.

Comparing Quick Shrink-IR and Quick Shrink-201

 

Feature Quick Shrink-IR Quick Shrink-201
Clarity Excellent (Crystal-clear) Very Good (High Gloss)
Strength Superior (Puncture resistant) Good (Strong for most jobs)
