IDEA16 International Engineered Fabrics Conference and Exposition
Posted on April 27, 2016 in News
Our Canadian subsidiary, PFM North America, is going introduce to the guests attending IDEA 2016 its packaging lines and technologies dedicated to the wet wipes industry.
Join us at our booth Join us at our booth #805, in Boston Convention and Exposition Center – Boston, MA – On May 3rd, 4th & 5th – 2016
From the individually wrapped pack to the family pack with resealable adhesive flap or rigid top. PFM has tackled the hygiene, wet wipes and tissues market with totally dedicated machines and lines that are the result of years of research and technological streamlining, obtained also thanks to collaboration with the main players of the sector at international level.
The requirements of disposable wet wipes producers are:
- High average production capacity.
- Completely air-tight seals.
- Appealing packages.
- High operating flexibility.
- Fast and easy line cleaning.
Lines dedicated to wet wipes flexible packaging
High average production capacity: obtained thanks to independent multi-conveyor line loading units, to the Long Dwell sealing system, which ensures air-tight seals at high revolution rates, to the high performance hardware and to its software which is the result of many years of research and experience.
Air-tight seals: thanks to the Long Dwell sealing system (patented by PFM) that given the same pressure and temperature increases the sealing time, compared to traditional systems.
Appealing packages: experience makes perfect. The forming tube treats the film delicately and with precision while the sealing systems are correctly positioned: all this makes for perfect, crease-free flow-wrap packages.
High operating flexibility: the same automatic feeding and packaging line by PFM can produce the disposal wet wipe pack and the family pack. Any component can be adjusted, is easily accessed and user-friendly.
Fast and easy cleaning: the horizontal flow-pack machines dedicated to this sector have the “film feeding from the bottom” feature. This prevents the sealing units that are located in the top position from coming into contact with the product or the liquid that may seep out. In addition to that, the lines were designed with a cantilever construction approach. This particular construction system allows a strict partition between the front and the back parts of the machine. On the front part there are only the sealing units and the product handling units, whereas on the back of the machine, in separated and protected environments, there are the mechanical and electronic components. The front part is free from any obstacle and can be quickly and easily cleaned.
Perfect integration: PFM packaging machines dedicated to the wet wipe packaging sector can be perfectly integrated with automatic labelling machines and cap application and closing systems, also automated.
