Alongside the PB 800 E-Com, and for customers who are looking to pack only with film, the new flexo 600 E-Com machine reportedly minimises film use while maximising results both with and without shrinking of the film bags. Designed to process products with a width of up to 600 mm and a height of 300 mm, a changeover adjusts between product batches or, as an added option, the machine can automatically adapt to changes in a product’s length, height or width.

According to Hugo Beck, speed and flexibility are key to the design of both machines, with up to 1500 cycles per hour available. The PB 800 E-Com can handle paper gauges of 80 – 130 g/m² and both machines can handle film thicknesses of between 30-100 μm.

Connectable to customer’s ERP or control systems, the company claims that both machines can also be easily integrated within a production line. Additional options include the ability to add an easy-opening perforation to the packaging as well as inserting a double-sided adhesive tape for resealing a bag for returns. An integrated scanner with a controller for product detection and creation of a shipping label can also be included on the line for additional capability.

Timo Kollmann concluded: “The e-commerce sector demands a wide variety of packaging styles. This, alongside the need to wrap a wide range of products quickly, flexibly and sustainably, means that our new machines are ideal for delivering perfect packaging results at high speeds and across a choice of paper or packaging substrates.”
