Paper X Series

Discover the range

The Paper X machinery collection includes four models in total, all available from YPS. The standard Paper X features just paper packaging with overlap seals on top, fitting the pack tightly to the pack's width, whilst the Paper X-E-com machine uses only paper materials with overlap seals on top of the pack and adapts the shipping bag size dynamically to the product's width and length. The Paper-X Hybrids are our most flexible machines, packing goods in both paper and film with hot melt seals for paper packaging and overlap top-sealing for plastic film packaging. The Paper X Hybrid Advance additionally offers the capability to create side seals.


Impress With Paper...

Transforming your product offering with paper packaging couldn’t be easier than with the Paper X machines. Both coated and uncoated papers are compatible with the equipment and a wide array of thicknesses ranging from around 60 g/m2 to 130 g/m2 are accepted. YPS are stockists of fully recyclable, sustainable papers in both brown and white specifications and printed designs can also be catered for, should you wish to enhance your branding or display important information on your packs. Furthermore, you can achieve impressive speeds of up to 12,000 packs per hour whilst using paper for a fast, efficient bagging operation.

The machines are able to create different types of paper seams to cater for different products. An extended 'lip' style of seal is possible, as is a simpler ‘overlapping’ style, where a strip of excess paper folds over the opposite side of the pack to enclose the product. It's also possible to create a ‘sleeve’ of paper, a style most typically used for wrapping magazines.

To create these seals on paper materials, small inconspicuous glue dots are neatly applied along the edges of the paper layers which the machine neatly presses together. The addition of this glue does not affect the recyclability credentials of the paper.


...or seal the deal with plastic film

Applicable only for the two Paper X Hybrid models, plastic shrink films and bagging films can also be run, performing exceptionally well. Both centre-folded and single-wound films are compatible, in any micron over 7mu, of any specification and with any percentage of recycled content. Speeds of up to 15,000 packs per hour can be achieved when running shrink film.

Heat seals are formed via top overlapping or side sealing, and packs can be totally enclosed or in sleeves, depending on your requirements.

Smooth and simple changeovers

To transfer between the two materials requires only a quick and easy changeover of parts. This process takes on average only 30 to 60 minutes to complete before production can commence once again in your consumable of choice.


A revolution in contract packing

Adopting a Paper X Hybrid machine for your co-packing operation allows you to respond to any and all bagging needs from your clients on the fly. Don't lose contracts because you can't accommodate a material choice, cover all bases with the Paper X Hybrid! Opting for our multi-purpose machines over two separate units running single materials saves your warehouse space and avoids the extra rigours of maintenance that two separate lines entail for a significant ROI. Invest in one powerful all-rounder and rest assured that you have the flexibility to satisfy all of your customer’s differing requirements, regardless of packaging trends.

Pick paper or choose plastic. With the Paper-X Hybrid sealing machines, the choice is really that simple.
