At the recently concluded Intelpack 2017 in Mumbai, Uflex’s holography and engineering business verticals marked their presence and displayed some of their advanced solutions for the visitors. The engineering business showcased the automatic pick fill seal (PFS) machine for packing food items in solid, liquid and powder form.
According to Ajay Tandon, president and chief executive officer of Uflex’s engineering business, the PFS machine showed at Intelpack is an improvement on the previous model in terms of better aesthetics, lower rejection rate and reduced noise levels. Since the machine can pack liquids, Uflex will also target customers in the edible oil industry.
The Uflex PFS machine is fully automatic, intermittent motion, 10-station rotary indexing filling and sealing machine. It can fill and seal center seal pouches, three-side seal pouches, stand-up pouches and zipper pouches, among others. The machine can be provided with various dozing systems. It features a mechanical robotic system offering close loop smart control, which ensures the pertinent operation: no pick—no fill—and no seal. This causes almost negligible wastage.
