Coffee flex-pack takes a stand
NEWS FROM PACK EXPO: After PackExpo, Fres-co’s (Telford, PA) Model GL-14 vf/f/s machine will be shipped to the Seattle, WA plant of Tully’s Coffee Corp.
The GL-14 forms a stand-up gusseted bag with reclosure. The machine features Corner Seal™ technology that eliminates a back seal to allow for full front and back panel design.
Tully’s coffee package is reverse-printed in five colors on a gravure press. On the GL-14 the preprinted rollstock made of aluminum foil polyester aluminum foil and polyethylene is 4-corner sealed and sealed on the bottom. After the bag is filled a tin-tie reclosure device is applied and the bag is sealed with tape.
The corner seal technology is said to provide a unique shape that is maintained on the store shelf.
