Equipment Snapshot: The Pack 202 is a fully-automated horizontal flow wrapping machine for low to medium speeds. It’s suitable for bars, bakery products, confectionery, cookies, and crackers, as well as non-food applications. With the Pack 202, manufacturers benefit from an easily removable discharge belt, upgrades to the cross-seal and fin seal units, and a highly intuitive, user-centered design.
The Pack 202 now features an improved canting mechanism. At the turn of a knob, operators can tilt the fin modules and adjust them easily for tighter or looser packs. The standard double-spring kit also offers more consistent and stable seals, while the adjustment resolution has been doubled, thus enabling more precise and repeatable crimper adjustments.
Syntegon has now equipped the Pack 202 in North America with a standard 450-millimeter dual backstand. Depending on brand owners’ needs, a 650-millimeter single backstand is also available.
As a new option for North American customers, the Pack 202 can be equipped with a one-meter-long reject belt. Its short length offers brand owners a much smaller machine footprint compared to the previous Pack 201 machine. The upper section of the reject belt is easy to remove for quick belt changes and cleaning processes. The detection function on the short discharge belt rejects faulty packages and automatically ejects them using compressed air. For larger and heavier products, a two-meter-long discharge module with reject plow is available as an option.
