PFM Scirocco Pocket-Bag

Pocket Bag® is the new package dedicated to the sector of cheeses and fresh products in general, which can be opened and closed thanks to the zip, folded hem or label.

Designed to package

Scirocco Pocket-Bag is a Horizontal packaging machine designed in particular for the automatic packaging of these products:

Open and Close

Pocket Bag® comprises the extreme practicality of the reclosable package and the guarantee of long-term freshness of the packaged product.
The novelty of the Pocket Bag® package lies in the wrapping material, which is made up of one or more layers of film that act as a gas barrier, and may be stripped off, thereby keeping the package intact.

Less Waste

The Pocket Bag® packaging system utilises a single reel of thermo sealing film. As with normal flow-pack packages, the machine seals the packages on three sides, offering the possibility of packaging products in the “stand up” position.
These characteristics permit considerable advantages in terms of the reduction of discards, due to discards and sealing loss, lower costs thanks to the possibility of using thinner barrier materials without compromising in any way the air tightness of the seal and, lastly, lower maintenance costs thanks to the reduced temperature of the sealing crimpers.

Marketing oriented

The Pocket Bag® package may be custom printed by the client, even on the rear of the package: the service to the final consumer perfectly weds marketing and communications requirements for food products.
