With the versatile Pure-Line portfolio, based on either PP or PE, SÜDPACK and SN German Pouch-Pack Technology are coming together at Anuga FoodTec 2022 in Cologne to present a solution that is both innovative and sustainable for the packaging of a broad variety of products in bags. The fully recyclable packaging concept by SÜDPACK will be on display on the rotary form, fill and seal machine FME 50 in hall 8.1 at stand B-049 of SN German Pouch-Pack Technology.
SÜDPACK has further expanded its tried and tested Pure-Line product family, which reflects the spirit of the times – and especially that of the visitors to the trade fair. Here too, in the filling & packaging segment at this year’s leading global trade fair for the food and beverage industry, the focus is on automated, cost-effective solutions that also go easy on resources and the environment while ensuring maximum product quality.
In addition to recyclable mono-materials based on PP, the SÜDPACK portfolio now also includes solutions made of PE. Both film structures offer the properties that are necessary for efficient and safe packaging, particularly of food products in doypacks. The spectrum of applications ranges from grated cheese to air-dried sausages and jerky, to nuts and snacks and right through to coffee, tea, herbs and grains. Depending on the products to be packaged, the high-performance films can be equipped with different barrier properties. Based on what is needed, the doypacks can be aroma proof and provide optimal protection against moisture, UV radiation or oxygen.
An additional advantage is the excellent machinability of the materials due to their broad sealing range, which results in a high level of process and packaging safety. At the same time, the formation of a sealing layer ensures the simple and efficient in-line application of common zipper systems, which are already available on the market as a PP-based product for flat bags and doypacks.
Last but not least, the Flow Pack Pure-Line can also be printed using SÜDPACK’s newly developed and pioneering SPQ printing technology, which is setting standards in flexo printing with its low carbon footprint and was honored with the German Packaging Award in gold in 2021.
Flexible and user-friendly HFFS bag packaging machines
The innovative and particularly sustainable film concept by SÜDPACK will be presented in Cologne on the SN horizontally operating bag packaging machine FME 50. The latest innovation by SN German Pouch-Pack Technology is an affordable, flexible and compact bag packaging machine for forming, filling and sealing three and four side sealed bags and doypacks. Using specifically designed dosing devices, the bags are filled with products of varied consistency and sealed. Without any difficulties or loss in speed or quality, modern recyclable materials such as PurePP or PurePE can be processed with an output of up to 100 cycles per minute.
The energy-efficient FME 50 impresses with its reliable SN technology and provides quick and easy access to the world of flexible bag packaging. It is designed to be a simple and efficient plug & play machine and is very easy to operate. The central gripper adjustment on the rotary table and the optimized height adjustment of the folding wedge contribute to a reduction of format changeover times, which greatly simplifies the operation of the machine.
A solution “on the cutting edge”
Both partners are expecting a great deal of interest among visitors at Anuga FoodTec from all industrial fields because the trend towards particularly resource-conserving, recyclable materials will continue. SÜDPACK is currently faced with increased demand, especially from brand manufacturers: “As a market and technology leader in our industry, we aligned our product and performance portfolio early on to meet the new requirements in the market – and have already demonstrated our expertise in much noted pilot and development projects. We are now in a position to offer our customers solutions that are pioneering in terms of material efficiency, recyclability, renewable raw materials and circular economy,” explained Holger Hoss, who as Product Manager is responsible for the flow pack solutions at SÜDPACK.
“The FME 50 allows us to combine customer needs, such as very short delivery times, ease of operation and a high level of quality, with low acquisition costs, and this is very much reflected by the popularity of the model. The fields of application are primarily dry food products, such as bulky goods, powder and granules, but also non-food products and lotions,” added Felix Eberhardi, Marketing Manager at SN German Pouch-Pack Technology.
