How to Reduce Total Volume with Vacuum Sealing

Posted by AMAC

There are several benefits to using vacuum sealing systems to package your products, including the ability to reduce total volume of your packaged goods. Vacuum packing and sealing machines, such as the nozzle vacuum sealer from AMAC Technologies, works by removing excess oxygen from packaging. This allows the package to shrink in size, making it compact and less bulky.  Reducing the total volume of your packages allows for easier storing as the items will take up less space, as well as the ability to ship lighter, smaller, packages and mailers, saving money on shipping costs.

What Industries Should Consider Vacuum Sealing to Reduce Total Volume?

  • Linens and Bedding – Any business that manufactures or ships products like comforters, bed sheets, blankets, and pillows, could benefit from the use of a vacuum sealing machine. These bulky items take up a lot of space, but because they are soft and made materials like cotton, there is a lot of oxygen that can be removed from the packaging, compressing the items without damaging them. Items like these can be reduced to a fraction of their size when vacuum sealed, allowing ease of storage and shipment when you use a vacuum sealer to reduce total volume.
  • Clothing – Much like bedding, clothing has the ability to be significantly compressed with a vacuum sealer, allowing clothing items to be shipped in bags or maileres instead of bulky boxes. This saves money and space when shipping and storing clothing items.
  • Food Products – Food items can also be vacuum packaged. While many food items do not take up much space and do not need to be compressed, vacuum sealing food and removing excess oxygen from their packaging can extend shelf life and protect food from harmful bacteria, ultimately reducing waste.

If your business would like to reduce total volume of your goods, allowing for easier storage, and saving money on shipping costs, you should consider vacuum sealing.
