Assembly Packaging is the combination of a variety of packaging types and techniques to achieve customized product packaging. Many different types of packaging solutions are applied in concert to realize customized client demands. Often times, a variety of techniques are applied such as clamshells, folding boxes, shrink-wrapping, polybagging or others.
Often times, the final product that is being packaged cannot simply be carried out with a single type of packaging. Product Packaging sometimes faces complexities with larger, unorthodox product types. It may become necessary to, for example, utilize a combination of Blister Packaging, Shrink-wrapping and Skin Pack Packaging to accomplish the successful and complete packaging of a particular product.
SHRINK WRAP PACKAGING
This type of product packaging utilizes films that have been purposely altered post-manufacture by way of mechanical stretching. This is done prior to heat application. The shrink-wrap film will then try to regain its original form once introduced to heat again, thus ensuring a very tightly sealed product packaged.
Shrink-wrap is nothing more than a film applied about the circumference of a product, tightened and shrunk with heat to form a close seal. The main purpose of this type of packaging is product protection, tamper-proof precautions or a combination thereof. Printed and clear shrink bands are also quite common. This technology takes advantage of shrink-wrapping the entire product as opposed to a band of shrink being applied only where it is needed. Heat shrink printed labels are also be coming very widely used. It is common to see to see a case shrink-wrapped with poly film to eliminate corrugate cardboard and to make the product more visible or weather resistant.
