An automatic system to present food in the ‘grab-bag’ style of packaging, which is gaining ground for premium snack products, will be demonstrated for the first time at the PPMA Show by Italian manufacturer PFM Packaging Machinery. Based on a PFM Mistral Servo flow-wrapper, it replaces the traditional pre-made hand-loaded paper bag with a flow-wrap created from Paper-Like™ film, produced and printed by converters Bemis Europe. It imitates paper in appearance and feel, giving an authentic artisan look. PFM’s Mistral machine is available with a number of product feed options for sandwiches or goods such as cookies at speeds up to 60 packs a minute.
Reclosure can be achieved with a label. Also to be shown by PFM is the new multi-mode Vetta II bagging machine, providing more than 20 different bag styles from a single machine, in addition to traditional pillow packs. In addition, there is the ZC1 entry level combination bagger/weigher and the Pearl low-cost servo-driven flow-wrapper.
