The Packaging Aids FW 400F flow wrapper is a horizontal machine that’s ideal for suppliers of products that must be packaged individually. These products include candy bars, chocolate, brownies, buns, crackers, ice cream bars, popsicles, and even electronic and medical products.

This flow wrapper is compact but can achieve speeds of up to 120 packages/min (up to 180 packs/min on twin jaw version). The Packaging Aids FW 400F is the perfect choice to meet everyone’s production needs, from small start-ups to large companies with higher speed requirements, and is designed for ease of use and changeover flexibility.

This flow wrapper includes print registration capability with precision control for indexing pre-printed films. The adjustable former allows this machine to accommodate various product dimensions, while digital display and guide rulers make the change over fast and easy.

The product is fed into the machine either manually or automatically. The product in-feed conveyor indexes items forward and encloses them into a formed tube of film. This web of material is then sealed using a “fin seal.” The enclosed product is then further indexed to be end sealed and cut off in a continuous process. The result is a neatly wrapped finished product. The belt out-feed conveyor provides smooth transfer of product from the machine to accumulation area or for feeding directly to your transfer conveyor.
