43 www.packagingdigest.com FALL 2016 // NEW TECHNOLOGY new products Pack Expo Vertical bagger Pick a pouch, any pouch. It's likely the Model XYRJ vertical form-fill-sealer can make it—and apply a zipper now, too, to produce consumer-preferred reclosable packaging. The ability to add a lengthwise zipper is a new option on this less-than-a-year-old packaging machine. Introduced by the company late in 2015, the XYRJ bagger captured the attention of packaging machinery users because of its versatility in creating a variety of bag styles: pillow, gusseted, 3-side-seal and Doyen. It's able to switch pouch formats—in 15 minutes or less—because its sealing jaw can be easily rotated, and without complicated tools. Using a VFFS machine instead of a horizontal system to apply a zipper to 3-side sealed pouches saves on floor space, and increases speeds and, subsequently, output. The 3-side sealed pouches are filled and sealed sideways, in a 90-degree position. The zipper is added to what looks like the side of the bag but is actually the top of the finished package. Intermittent- or continuous-motion systems are available, with top speeds reaching 120 bags per minute. Triangle Package Machinery, www.trianglepackage.com Pack Expo 2016 Booth S-2430 Metallized transfer film The new Lumirror MR20 polyester metal transfer film gives brand owners of mass produced products a luxury packaging option they may have previously thought was out of their league. Manufactured in-line in one step, Lumirror MR20 transfers the aluminum deposited on the film directly to the paper or paperboard package, which generates high brightness. Recycling is an important feature of the new product, too. After it is used in the converter's transfer metallization process, the MR20 film can be returned to the manufacturer for recycling. Plus, finished paperboard packaging can be recycled or repulped. According to the company, paper and paperboard that are transfer-metallized with MR20 film exhibit excellent dead-fold properties, remain flat and smooth, do not delaminate or curl, and the metal does not flake off.
