FAWEMAs Bag Packer FA 217

Interpack Exhibit FA 217.1
FAWEMA has been working hard over the last 3 years to innovate and improve what was already a leap forward in packing technology, with the ­release of the FA 217 retail packer. Kraft paper in the form of ready-made, block-bottom bags has long been the preferred packaging material when it comes to retail-size flour packs. Recently however, a trend in the market towards utilizing plastic packaging material has become evident and ­FAWEMA has designed, built and delivered a ­variety of flexible FA 217 machines.
New incorporations of our vertical form fill and seal unit and now with a combination magazine, which allows the running of premade paper and premade plastic Totani style bags.
FAWEMA has been working with many of its partners to optimise its sealing unit in addition ­FAWEMA has been reaching out to the paper and bag manufactures to enhance the quality of the final bag. Tighter seals have been achieved with a range of different folds on kraft paper bags.
With the evolution of premade plastic bags being used to pack powder products, like flour and sugar, this has meant for the first time a completely sealed bag can be achieved through the application of a heat sealing machine.
