Horizontal forming shoulder


form of the seal: centered or shifted lap or distant fin seal
infeed of film: from top

Horizontal forming shoulders are applied to the packaging of piece goods. They are also known as folding boxes.

Our forming shoulders are suited especially for use in high-speed packaging machines.


  • wrinkle-free forming
  • minimum installation effort


Due to the infeed of the film from top the piece goods have to be pushed within the forming shoulder. Thus the design of the forming shoulder depends on the geometry of the conveyor and the pitch point of the driving pin.
