PFM has broadened its range of wrapping equipment for the cheese and sliced meat markets with a new high speed MAP flow-wrapper able to produce both reclosable packs and standard pillow packs.
Capable of speeds up to 100 a minute in reclosable, MAP mode, the new Scirocco-ZIP uses either zipper or mini-hook profile yet can be changed over to produce pillow packs at speeds up to 150 a minute in less than 20 minutes. An inverted machine, it accepts product onto the film, which then carries it through a forming box set at 90 deg to normal, so that the longitudinal seal is made at the side, where the zipper tape is also introduced and sealed in place. To maintain speed, the zipper profile is punched to remove most of the polymer where it intersects with the cross-seal, reducing overall film thickness at this point.
