Range and Reliability in Powder Packaging: Nichrome

Powder packaging is not easy. Different powders come with their own challenges. Some are free flowing, others are not. Some, like flour, cause a dusty environment. Certain powders like agro-chemicals can turn explosive with certain gases and an electrical spark. Product changeovers can cause cross-contamination issues.

Then, different customers have different expectations. Some have limited floor space; some want multiple types of pouch formats and package quantities. Many demand versatility so the same machine can be used for varied products. Some plants do only small sachet packaging; others do bulk packaging. Few prefer Horizontal-Form-Fill-Seal (HFFS) machines while others like Vertical-Form-Fill-Seal (VFFS) technology.
