Clam Packing (also known as Clamshell Packaging) is made by Thermoforming the shape of the package to fit closely around the contents(see Thermoforming)is ideal for presenting and packaging a variety of different shapes and sizes such as electrical goods, automotive parts, toiletries and cosmetics. The Clam Pack is hand filled than a simple secure clip closure keeps the hinged pack together (this can then be spot welded if required for security). This type of pack is used primarily for retail display as it generally allows a high degree of all round visibility and therefore is a popular and practical way of displaying your product.
The advantage of the Clam Pack is that you can pack it yourself so you don’t have to hold large amounts of packed stock. You can also change the paper insert to suit individual customers or even different languages with minimal cost.
