Flowpacker provides shelf-appeal for chocs
A new horizontal flowpacker has been developed by German processing equipment company Hugo Beck to meet the demanding shelf display requirements of the chocolate and confectionery sector.

The Flowpack X-D can be personalised to each customer’s specific needs and recently has been designed to produce special confectionery display packs that catch the consumer’s eye.

As well as accommodating a wide variety of films, the latest development creates a ‘header’ for the application of a label to deliver good on-shelf standout.

The box motion transversal sealing unit on the Flowpack X-D enables a continuous seal for high output while simultaneously manufacturing the header, using two transverse sealing profiles to give the finished product its appearance. Packs can then be collated using accumulation synchronisation or kept contact-free via cascade belts.

At the same time, a colour-printed card with product information and a best-before date can be applied to one side of the pack.

The flowpack X-D operates at speeds of up to 200 cycles a minute.
