Flexible packaging material is the generic term for soft packages made of film, foil or paper sheeting. Popular forms are stand-up pouches, bags, sachets and envelopes. These packages are often formed, filled and sealed in a vertical or horizontal form-fill-seal machine. The package is then finally put into a case by top loading, pick-and-place or similar technology. This final step to automatically handle the filled pouch or bag is done by specific suction cups and a selection of vacuum pumps with high initial vacuum flow.
