We recently installed our Pack 520 Horizontal Flow Wrapper at a customer in Ohio replacing their old equipment from our competitor. Our customer is packaging popcorn balls mostly for baseball stadiums at a speed of up to 100 packages per minute.
Few things that the customer loves about their new flow wrapper compared to their existing packaging machine:
- Easy changeover (allows you to recall recipes on the touch screen for automatic adjustment)
- Servo driven – less maintenance on the machine
- No Product / No Bag – the machine will not make an empty bag if the product is not fed on the machine
- Misplaced product detection to avoid sealing on the product
- Higher speed than their old machine
- The machine is very precise and makes less waste on film
- Easy to clean
The Pack 520 horizontal wrapping machine is built for a 24/7 environment. This machine will produce up to 150 packages per minute and is equipped to hold up to 520mm (20.4”) wide web film.
