The thermoforming machine ML-C 5600-Skin – for industrial skin packaging.

Skin packaging is an additional variation which has been further developed according to the properties of the ML-C 5600. With a thermoformed skin pack, your product receives a skin-tight enclosure of a clear-transparent top film. This special skin film is being sealed full-surface onto the bottom film without impairing the product. The result is a pack of excellent quality with enhanced food safety and the best possible product presentation – no matter if the product is presented hanging or lying at the point of sale.
