SOAP PACKAGING MACHINES
We offer 3 different machines:
As name suggests, end-folds in the pack are pressed against the ends of the product and resemble a typical envelope.Khosla Machines Private Limited A regular shaped product like soap bars can be neatly packed in this style.
This machine forms a tube by pulling sealable film over a forming block by means of pairs of pulling and sealing rollers. Product is pushed into the tube in a timed way. Ends of the tubes are crimped, sealed and cut to form individual packs.Khosla Machines Private Limited In a horizontal machine the tube is drawn horizontally and the product is pushed on a horizontal conveyor, hence the name.
Pack formed on HFFS has a long seam running parallel to the product along the centre line of the base of pack. Khosla Machines Private LimitedTwo end seals also called Fin seals, complete the pack. This pack is also called pouch pack or pillow pack because of its shape
Typically laminates like Polyester / OPP, BOPP / BOPP, CPP / BOPP, Polyester / PE or plain BOPP are used in HFFS machines. Advantage of using laminates is that outer layer can be reverse printed to give a glossy print appearance on the outside at the same time preventing printing chemicals coming in contact with edible products like biscuits.Khosla Machines Private Limited All materials used on HFFS must have sealable inside surface.
Toilet soaps are packed in both pouch shaped packs and envelope type overwraps. Although it is a matter of personal choice, there are a few factors that make envelope type overwrap a better choice. Over wrapping or envelope type packing (with stiffener and Paper / PET laminate heat sealable) has following distinct advantages over pouch pack. Because of this, world over this is considered a better method of packing. Some of the advantages are:
Mechanised packing has numerous advantages. A few of the advantages are:
All the machines (FINSEAL 11S, WRAPPER 4000, WRAPPER 4000 T) can be customized to suit Khosla Machines Private Limiteddifferent sizes by merely changing a few parts.
Stiffener apart from protecting the delicate soap also provides straight edges along which side folds Khosla Machines Private Limitedare made. This is very helpful when packing soaps with curved facets.
Wrapper size can be calculated as follows: Cut length = Perimeter of soap cross section + 18 mm (minimum). It is better to wrap a paper around soap to find perimeter. Khosla Machines Private LimitedWrapper width: Length of soap + Thickness of soap (at the thickest point) -6 mm.
stiffener width = Length of soap - 1.5 mm Khosla Machines Private Limitedstiffener cut length = Perimeter of the soap cross-section
Wrapper can be sealed either by heat application or by cold gum application. For heat sealability, wrapper should have either a heat sealable layer or hot melt coating on the inside. Both WRAPPER 4000 and WRAPPER 4000 T machines are equipped with this feature.
For cold gum sealing, special formulation gum is applied on the wrapper of the wrapping machine. Khosla Machines Private LimitedThis option is available on WRAPPER 4000 T model.
Heat sealing, without any doubt. Khosla Machines Private LimitedMuch better speed can be achieved and machine folders do not require frequent cleaning too.
Printed wrapper comes in form of roll which is unwound on the machine during the process of wrapping. Slight difference in pull length will make the printed matter slip a little with respect to the product being wrapped. This slip is cumulative and soon it will become noticeable and be unacceptable. Khosla Machines Private LimitedPrint registration unit continuously detects the slip and monitors the correction arrangement to ensure centrality of the printed wrapper with respect to the product.
