Paxiom has released a horizontal flow wrapper suitable for a range of confectionery products, snack items, bakery goods and other food items.

Suited for food operations looking for easy setup and quick changeover, the machine reportedly can output 200 packages per minute. A color touchscreen includes preprogrammed product setup and an adjustable forming box, helping simplify operation.

Easy changeover

The Sleek 65 wrapper operates with three servo motors and servo drives that reportedly help streamline changeover adjustment. Further, the servo drives help facilitate positioning precision, smooth acceleration and deceleration, and reduced maintenance.

The wrapper also has a dual lug position infeed conveyor and adjustable forming shoulder. Standard features include PID temperature control, pre-programming and storage of setup parameters, rotary seal jaws with jam-detecting logic.

Additionally the wrapper is made of stainless steel. The construction helps facilitate sanitation and cleanup.

Longer shelf life

Users can equip the wrapper with gas-flush capabilities for extended food product shelf life. Optional printing and labeling attachments help execute product identification or code dating.

Additionally, eye-mark sensing devices positioned on the film-unwind roller assembly help running of registered, printed roll stock film. Compatible films include polypropylene film, microperf material, multilayer laminated, co-extruded and foil films, and more.
