2 sides sewn, top overlap glued

Various packaging techniques are applied for this paper packaging with two sewn sides and glued top overlap. This type of paper bag is produced with the paper e-com fit.

2 sides glued at front & rear, top overlap glued

This paper packaging, which is produced on the paper X Form Fill and Seal machine, is a high-speed application. A sleeve is formed by folding and gluing the paper at the top. Then the paper sleeve, which already contains the product, is glued at the front and rear sides.

Paper-banded, overlap thermo sealed/glued

This special packaging produces a tight banderole of paper. Either a kraft paper with PE coating or an uncoated paper can be used. Depending on the type of paper, the cross seam is either thermally sealed or glued with hot glue.

Flowpack with longitudinal seam above/below

Flowpacks with the characteristic fin seams appeal thanks to their 100% air-tightness and extraordinary stability which enables a sales-effective product presentation at the point of sale. Our flowpack machines flexibly process both film and paper, which must contain a minimum coating of some type, such as PE or cold glue, in order to be sealed.

Flowpack with longitudinal seam above/below

Flowpacks with the characteristic fin seams appeal thanks to their 100% air-tightness and extraordinary stability which enables a sales-effective product presentation at the point of sale. They are produced on our continuous flowpack machines.

Side seal

Side sealing machines with film waste rewinders pack products with a lateral cut seal. The lateral cut seal guarantees a high-quality packaging without remaining film on the product. Thanks to our patented tight packaging only as much film is used as is truly needed.

Bottom cut seal

This type of packaging uses a cut seal underneath the product. If required, high-quality shrink packaging is also possible. These are particularly suitable for film packaging of round products.

Overlap on top

With this flexible overlap sealing, products can be closed at the top, centre or side. This shrink-wrapping technology is in great demand especially for the packaging of mailing products such as magazines or catalogues.

Bottom overlap thermo seal/static seal

This overlap seal is applied in the middle of the product below. Hugo Beck uses the technology of seal welding or ionisation (with shrinking). This way the overlap can be set centrally or laterally.

Sleeve wrapping

Sleeve wrapping or banding means that products are shrink-wrapped or wrapped in a flat film as individual packages or bundles. Stretch banding without shrinking is also possible.

Eurohole hang pack

Euro hole welding has established itself worldwide as a packaging method for the production of hang packs. With Hugo Beck packaging machines an additional sealing is possible to stabilise the packaging, enabling an optimal presentation of the products.

Hang pack with reinforced header

The Hugo Beck packaging technology "Euro hole with header" is patented. An additional reinforcing film strip is inserted and welded to the packaging film.

Reclosable bag

Reclosable closures can be made with either cold glue or a double-sided adhesive tape. Products with a maximum height up to 25 mm are easily packed in film, ensuring a consumer-friendly finish.

We offer support with our expertise throughout the entire automation process, from project planning and manufacture right through to integration into complex packaging lines. Both robots and handling systems can be purchased independently of Hugo Beck packaging machines.


Total flexibility is key aspect to our feeder systems. As each Hugo Beck feeder is equipped with its own control and own drive unit, it can be operated not only with our machines, but also with third-party devices. The position of each unit is also freely selectable.

Suction Belts/Mailtables

The high-performance, freely positionable mailtables of Hugo Beck are called maillines and usually consist of a feeder and an attached alignment section with an outfeed suction belt. The maillines are primarily processing flyers, which are for example fed in, grooved and afterwards glued and personalised.

Inserting Machines

Hugo Beck provides inserting machines for the collation of magazines and catalogues with inserted and/or applied supplements of various types in the performance range from 8,000 to 15,000 cycles/hour.
