For products that must be packed individually, a flow-wrap system is a great choice. Fed by rolls of heat-sealable film, which can be pre-printed with product information, the film is wrapped around the product, then sealed on three sides by the machine. The result is a neat, crisp package that has great consumer appeal, is easy to open, and carries your company’s branding, graphics, and contents information. Flow-wrap packaging is used widely for food products, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and medical products. At Sun Packaging, our packaging specialists can show you how the high quality flow-wrap form/fill/seal equipment we supply can streamline your packaging of any of these and other products.
The PFM Hawk Horizontal Flow-Wrap Packaging Machine
From the PFM Group, the Hawk is an economical horizontal flow-wrap type packaging machine. Like all PFM horizontal flow-wrap machines, the Hawk produces packs that are sealed on three sides from a roll of heat-sealable packaging film. It can run up to 100 mechanical cycles per minute. Of course the actual number of packages per minute depend on the product you intend to run and the film you use.
Hawk can be customized with many optional features including a photocell for print-registration and a hot-stamp printer for date/lot coding. Options include mechanical or digital controls.
The PFM Pearl Horizontal Flow-Wrap Packaging Machine
The PFM Group’s Pearl is a full servo horizontal flow-wrap machine. The standard machine can produce up to 120 packages per minute (depending on the product and film). It has a carbon steel frame, compact design, cutting edge hardware and a color touch screen operator interface.
Because of its servo motor controls, the Pearl can automatically adjust the bag length, print registration position, crimper position, dwell time and the overall machine speed. This is all done via the operator interface – no tools required.
