ALLIEDFLEX® Technologies, Inc. (Sarasota, Florida) and HDG Packaging Machinery (Lindlar, Germany) announce a new 100% Paper Pouch/Bag Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal System.

HDG Pouch Packaging Machinery is partnered with ALLIEDFLEX Technologies, their exclusive North American sales and marketing partner, to handle their complete Horizontal Pouch Packaging Machinery Program

ALLIEDFLEX and HDG support the transition to eco-friendly flexible packaging solutions for the packaging market to enable its customers to keep up with evolving environmental developments. 

The flexible packaging industry is working to support higher environmental standards, overcome new challenges, and develop new opportunities to create innovative solutions to stay ahead in this crucial sustainability drive.

The patent-pending HDG Paper ‘Pressure Seal Module’ enables the online production and packaging of 100% Paper Packaging. HDG models now produce and package paper pouches and bags on their HFFS machinery without a heat-seal layer.

What does this mean?

  • 100% recyclable paper materials 
  • Made of 100% brown or white paper
  • 50% less material costs
  • The plastic barrier layer (sealant layer) is eliminated
  • Ideal for low barrier, short shelf life, and individually wrapped multipack applications

Learn more with the debut of the HDG «Pressure Seal Technology» at the upcoming Global Pouch Forum, which will take place May 29-31 in Clearwater, Florida. The technology will be on display at Booth 502.

HDG is well established in North America through its installed base of its INLINE ROTARY HORIZONTAL POUCH PACKAGING MACHINERY, operating at North American Food, Personal Care, Nutraceutical Corporations, and Contract Packagers.
