Spooled Twist Tie Applications

Spooled twist ties are used for everything that standard twist ties are used for. There are only two advantages to the spooled twist ties that make them desirable than the otherwise more convenient precut ties:

  • Any Length: spooled twist ties can be cut in any length desired, including lengths of several feet (or several hundred feet for that matter). This is occasionally desirable for crafts uses, and in almost all instances spooled twist ties are used for situations in which longer or highly variable lengths are required, since most shorter lengths are easily available in pre-cut sizes.
  • Twist Tie Machines: used primarily my food manufacturers, twist tie machines automatically seal foot in back with twist ties. The most common and well-known example is packaged precut bread purchased in grocery stores, which is often closed with twist ties. These ties are applied automatically by machine making use of spooled twist ties, which feed continuously through the machine and are cut into appropriate lengths by the twist tie machine. The reason the machines prefer spooled twist ties is mostly to prevent machine jams — a machine designed to use precut lengths would risk having the leading edge of a tie bend and jam the machine. A secondary benefit is that the twist tie machine can be set to cut the ties at different lengths.
