Sack & bag production

Sacks and bags appear in a variety of forms everywhere we go. Normally made from flexible materials, applications include everything from bags for rice, through carrier bags, to agricultural and industrial sacks.

Using materials such as plastic films and paper, often combined in laminated composite materials, manufacturers produce sacks and bags using a range of processes, dependent on the substrate.
