Bag Closures Get An Upgrade

On, they emphasize the importance of being reliable and reducing the complexity of twist tyers. Any downtime at the twist tyer on the distribution line could potentially mean of loss of all the baker has invested into that product including ingredients, labor, utilities and more. “Bakers like to see faultless 24/7 operation of closing systems.” Otherwise, time and money will be wasted.

“That need has prompted closure suppliers and bag closing equipment manufacturers to look more closely at design and automation features.”

Material Cost Savings

Over the years, the typical twist tie has slimmed down over the years to 1/8 in. wide. That has helped to reduce the amount of paper and plastic the tie contains which saves in material costs but when the consumer reseals the package at home, that small tie becomes a little more than a wire. Now, a 25% wider twist tie has come into play making customers happier.

“Machines that twist, attach and print closures have long been bakery workhorses.”
