Skin Applications

Film is heated and draped over the product, a vacuum then draws the film tightly around the product to secure it to a board.

With skin packaging machines, products are skin packaged to a substrate card with a sheet of transparent film, which is softened with heat and vacuum sealed over the product and card. Skin packaging provides lock down product protection, product visibility and tamper evidence.

A lower cost packaging option, skin packaging is often used to display products and protect products during shipping and processing. Following the skin packaging process, die cutting is added as a finishing option. Often times, multiple products are skinned to one card and then die cut into individual packages.
