Hugo Beck has developed its latest flowpack machine to meet the demanding display requirements of the confectionery sector.
The manufacturer of horizontal flowpack, film packaging and post-print processing machines said its Flowpack X-D can be personalised to each customer’s specific needs to deliver perfect results and recently has been designed to produce special display packs that help confectionery packs catch the consumer’s eye.
As well as being able to operate with a wide variety of films, the recent machine project uniquely creates a header for the application of a label to deliver maximum on-shelf standout.
The box motion transversal sealing unit on the Flowpack X-D enables a continuous seal for high output whilst simultaneously manufacturing the header, using two transverse sealing profiles to give the finished product its unmistakable appearance.
Packs can then be collated using accumulation synchronisation or kept contact-free via cascade belts. At the same time, a colour printed card with product information and a best-before date can be applied to one side of the pack.
“Flowpack machines are ideal for packaging in the confectionery sector where air-tightness and stability of the final product are essential,” said Timo Kollmann, Hugo Beck’s sales director. “No matter the product or the dimensions, our flowpack X-D machine is able to be personalised to each customer’s specific needs to deliver the perfect results.”
