“The same professional seal and appearance for every single pack. ”
For a more luxurious appearance, aluminium packaging is often used. This material is thicker and often consists of several layers. As a result, more heat is needed for sealing on the one hand, and the seal has to be larger on the other. A smaller seal closes the pack off just as well as a larger one, but the residual packaging above the seal will often open up a little. This has no effect on the product but it does affect the appearance. The packaging looks less neat and tidy and although dust cannot get into the coffee, it can be seen on the packaging where what is essentially a groove has been left. This is not desirable and so a wider seal is then a popular choice. Many shops also choose a seal that is tight up against the top edge of the packaging. This kind of sealed pack demands a packaging machine that generates more heat than a manual sealer, for example.
Higher-capacity packaging machines with attractive pricing
In addition to the other requirements imposed on the exterior of the packaging, this group within the coffee sector features larger quantities of coffee being processed than is the case for smaller coffee roasters and sellers. For this group, continuous sealers are therefore a good option, as these machines allow larger numbers of packs to be processed more quickly.
Additional benefits of this type of equipment from Audion Packaging Machines include the option of adding an expiry date in the seal. If you are selling to a supermarket, for example, a ‘best before’ date on the packaging is mandatory. Audion Packaging Machines make this possible for relatively low cost by combining sealing and printing of the ‘best before’ date in a single machine. These packaging machines heat the packing material, after which a roller is used to impress a profile into the seal. The machine can press the expiry date into the package seal in the same way.
