PFM’s latest technologies on display at PPMA Show
PFM Packaging Machinery will display its latest bagging system at this year’s PPMA Show in the NEC, Birmingham.
The new Azimuth EVO follows the same design concept as the R Series bagging machine, offering reduced downtime for reel changes, automatic film web tracking and a space-saving footprint.
Azimuth EVO’s automated film reel set-up eliminates one of the most difficult and time-consuming tasks for operators, cutting changeover time substantially and massively cutting down on film wastage.
Also being promoted at the show is the latest version of the flexible Pearl flowrapper, designed in stainless steel for hygiene benefits, making it suitable for food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, durables and houseware items.
High speed, versatile and capable of up to 120 cycles/min, the Pearl technology developed by PFM provides all the efficiency advantages of multi-axis servo drive, but at an entry level cost.
Additional exhibits include the PFM Scirocco, an inverted web MAP flowrapper for a wide range of products from milk and cheese to wet wipes, which can produce up to 200 hermetically sealed bags per minute. Also on display is the latest generation PFM C2 Multi-head weigher, specifically designed for high-speed and precision weighing of granules, pellets and similar products.
