PFM Tornado LD

The Tornado LD is a horizontal flowrapping machine that produces up to 100 packs/min with hermetic seals from a flat reel of heat seal wrapping material.

Designed to package

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


  • Hermetic sealing at high wrapping speeds: thanks to PFM’s patented Long Dwell sealing head with oil bath transmission. The Tornado easily achieves wrapping speeds of 100 packs per minute.
  • Easy cleaning: constructed from anticorodal aluminium and AISI 304 with large radius corners, all product contact parts can be sanitised and are made of FDA approved materials.
  • Cantilevered construction: the mechanical and electronic components are housed at the back of the wrapping machine in a separate, protected environment. The front of the machine is clear and can easily be cleaned. Product debris does not come into contact with any mechanical or electrical parts.
