The skin packaging is a process in which heated film is draped over a product and onto a substrate, and a vacuum is utilized to draw the film down onto the package, creating a secure and attractive package.
The skin package consists of: skin film, a heat activated coating on the film or the substrate, and a subtrate, either paperboard or corrugated.
Heat Seal's Ampak division manufactures skin packaging machines Thrifty Pack, Shipmate, and the Master.
To finish the process, die cut machines are often used to create an attractive package to display or transport. Ampak also manufactures automatic and semi-automatic die cutters: Rotomatic and Rotocut.
