The roots of NuLine Manufacturing, Inc began in 1968 when T Guard developed the platen pouch machine.
This was the first machine capable of making a shape from thermally sealable films, changing an industry.
The first platen pouch machine was designed to produce tapered sleeves for the floral industry. We discovered an entirely new technology in the converting industry.
This new technology was quickly applied to a number of products and virtually helped kick-start a lot of industries.
Products that previously could only be produced from vinyl using RF technology can now be produced at lower cost with thermally sealable materials. The vast majority of the foil balloon market, which began in the early 1970s and continues today, uses this same technology. In the early ’80s, platen technology was introduced to the medical and surgical market with a number of pouches, bags, and disposables too numerous to list.
NuLine has continued to develop this unique technology and currently is the world leader in liquid packaging and bag-n-box machinery, gas sterilization pouch machines, and gas-filled packaging.
