High-quality clips are essential to a successful clip closure. The metal composition, clip dimensions and finish are all vital factors in the integrity of the product seal. The clip itself performs the final gathering of the product’s packaging.
In addition to gathering packaging material, the clip must keep the package securely closed under a variety of extreme conditions. For meat products, it must endure high heat from the cooking and smoking processes. For vacuum packed products, the clip keeps the package airtight through its entire shelf life. For netted products, the clip carries heavy loads as it supports large hams through the smokehouse and bulky frozen turkeys through the freezer case until the products reach the consumer’s kitchen.
TIPPER TIE clips are manufactured from a special aluminum alloy and are held to exacting specifications that exceed those from the general wire industry.
TIPPER TIE wire is formed to a variety of specific shapes to create the best clip for each customer’s application. Shapes include the modified trapezoidal clip, elliptical clip and round wire clips. The dimensions of all TIPPER TIE clips, particularly the crown and leg lengths, are kept within very tight tolerances ensuring a perfect closure every time. Furthermore, clip leg ends are radiused and lubricated to ensure that both clip legs form simultaneously as the clip gathers the packaging materials and creates a tight, clean closure.
The result is a clip that closes smoothly and securely every time. It’s not only the clipper that makes a successful clipping operation; it’s a combination of a TIPPER TIE clipper and TIPPER TIE clips.
TIPPER TIE offers complete clip packaging systems – machines, clips, loops, labels and knives for many hours of safe, uninterrupted operation. Our clips are designed to the exacting specifications including dimensions, shape and alloy to ensure reliable operation. Your products can be individually coded. Colored clips or loops, embossed clips or clipped labels are excellent means for product identification. The loops detach cleanly during the clipping process and are available in different colors. Labels are the perfect way to ensure identification and traceability of the products. It ensures comprehensive control of the entire process chain.
