Syntegon reveals the next generation of flow wrappers, ideal for multi-product applications, including the baked goods and confectionery market, and sustainable materials such as paper.
Syntegon Technology has launched the next generation of flow wrappers – the Pack 202. As the successor of the Pack 201, the machine is a fully automated horizontal flow wrapping machine for low to medium speeds. The flow wrapper is suitable for bars, bakery products, cookies and crackers, as well as non-food applications. With the Pack 202, manufacturers benefit from a number of technological improvements that were first introduced on the new Pack 403, including upgrades to the cross-seal and fin seal units, and a highly intuitive, user-centred design. The Pack 202 is a heat-sealing flow wrapper. Supported pack styles include pillow, gusseted and easy-to-open packs.
Borrowed from the Pack 403: Technological upgrades for improved seal quality
Ideal for multi-product applications, the Pack 202 can wrap individual or grouped products including bakery goods, bars, fresh and frozen products, confectionery, snacks, medical products, prepared foods, household goods, and many other food and non-food items. The Pack 202 profits from a number of cross- and fin-seal improvements that were first introduced on the Pack 403 flow wrapping machine. The finwheel modules have been synchronised and the Pack 202 now features an improved canting mechanism for more consistent seals.
The cross-seal unit on the Pack 202 has also been improved significantly: The standard double-spring kit offers more consistent and stable seals than previous models, while the adjustment resolution has been doubled, thus enabling more precise and repeatable crimper adjustments.
User-friendly design for easy handling
User-friendliness and ease of operation are at the heart of the Pack 202’s design – just like the Pack 403. A number of features on the Pack 403 have been integrated into the Pack 202 to improve the user experience. Sequentially numbered film rollers facilitate film threading for repeatable, consistent changeovers and minimise downtime caused by “trial-and-error” adjustments. The flow wrapper also comprises an optional automatic film splicer with laser-etched instructions on the deckplate to secure fast and smooth film changes without having to stop the machine.
Intelligent and sustainable technologies
Syntegon has intensified its efforts to develop intelligent and sustainable technologies. The paper-ON-form forming shoulder is a compatible option with the Pack 202. Meaning that manufacturers can wrap with normal and paper film on the Pack 202. Making it possible to gradually switch to paper.
