PFM Shamal

Servo controlled horizontal flow wrapper that produces pillow packs with three air tight seals.

Designed to package

Shamal is a Horizontal packaging machine designed in particular for the automatic packaging of these products:


  • Flexibility: the format can be changed in just a few minutes. The Shamal includes the LVA function which is the automatic adjustment of bag length according to the length of the product, as well as a print registration facility. The ERS (Extended Rotary Sealing) concept allows to products to be wrapped with a max. height of 190 mm.
  • Easy cleaning: constructed in AISI 304 with large radius corners, all product contact parts can be sanitised and are made of FDA approved materials.
  • Packaging speeds: Up to 100 cycles per minute with a fixed pitch function or 50 with the LVA function.
  • Ergonomics: The new design of the main guard, shuttle conveyors, crimper assembly and crimper height adjustment have improved the user friendliness of the machine and reduced set-up times.
  • Perfect sealing: The PFM ERS sealing systems achieve temperatures equal to those of traditional rotary systems and give optimum sealing time and pressure. They have a continuous motion rotating action and an automatically actuated knife.
