Resealable Closure for Product Bags

Closures for Various Bag Styles including Doy Style Stand-up Pouches

Resealable Zip Bags for Extended Product Freshness

Pillow-BlockillustratThe ability to reseal a bag, via the addition of a zip closure, is important for a wide range of products, particularly where extended life/freshness is a necessity, such as in food packaging.

Line Equipment developed the Reseal Zip Applicator to add resealable closures to bags on either VFFS machines or HFFS Machines.

Closures are most popular on stand-up pouches such as Doy style, Quad and Block Bottom but can be applied to other bag styles, including pillow, 3 or 4 Sided Seal and Thermoform Pouches.
