Wicketed Poly Bags: The Technology

Wicketed poly bags have been used to package a wide range of products and their utility and importance continues to increase.  Some current applications include packaging baked goods such as bread or buns, packaging produce such as potatoes, apples or oranges, packaging hosiery and garments as well as using them for small mechanical components and for ice cubes. The growth of poly mailer use has been nothing less than phenomenal, tracking directly with the growth of e-commerce.  The bags are typically made from polyethylene (PE) and the mailers from a co-extruded PE, manufactured and mounted on wire brackets, most commonly in units of 100-250 to allow easy replacement or removal during the packaging process, whether manual or automated. In general, packaging is trending towards smaller packages for less waste, transparency for consumer confidence and more colorful with highly specialized and intricate graphics. Wicketed poly bags are no exception. With the recent acquisition of the latest equipment to produce wicketed bags and poly mailers and by controlling every aspect of production within our own four walls, LPS Industries is at the forefront of this segment of the industry.
