PFM Falcon Flow Wrapper
PFM Falcon Servo Packaging Line

Package Up to 6 Products per Package

The PFM Falcon horizontal packaging machine produces pillow-pack type bags from a roll of heat or cold sealable paper or plastic wrapping material. The Falcon's steel monoblock frame structure is painted with three layers of scratch-proof epoxy paint or made of stainless steel. All product contact parts are constructed from 18/10 stainless steel.


Multiple Products per Package without Trays
The Falcon versatile format change can produce packs containing 1 to 6 products. Ideal for produce, especially round fruits and vegetables usually packed on trays like apples, kiwis, onions, peaches, etc. Conventional pillow packs can contain 1, 2, or 3 products; 4 (2+2) products; and 6 (3+3) products.

Products previously packed in trays or on trays in pillow bags can now be packed in pillow packs only, reducing packaging costs and simplifying waste disposal.

The infeed conveyor and forming tunnel enable the Falcon to pillow pack products traditionally packaged on vertical packaging machines. The horizontal Falcon prevents delicate products from becoming bruised or damaged.

Ease of Cleaning
The PFM model Falcon has been designed with cantilever principles. By those means all the mechanic and electronic components are placed on the back of the machine in separate and protected areas. Thank to this constructive philosophy the front of the machine is then free from obstacles allowing an absolute easy and quick cleaning operations on all the parts of the machine in contact with the products.

The Falcon, being an extremely flexible machine, is able to handle a wide variety of products with absolutely reduced down times for change over to a different format. Falcon is available in 9 different versions to satisfy each and every product and production requirement.

Counter-pitch of pushers can be adjusted by a handwheel to suit the grade of produce
