As the successor to the Pack 201, the Pack 202 flow wrapper is a fully automated horizontal flow wrapping machine for low to medium speeds.

The flow wrapper is suitable for bars, bakery products, cookies, and crackers, as well as non-food applications. With the Pack 202, manufacturers benefit from a number of technological advances that were first introduced on the new Pack 403 last year, including an easily removable discharge belt, upgrades to the cross-seal and fin seal units, and a highly intuitive, user-centered design.

“Our new flow wrapper for small to mid-sized manufacturers certainly packs a punch,” said Kelly Meer, product manager at Syntegon. “We were able to integrate some of the features of our Pack 403 for medium- to high-speed applications into the new Pack 202. The machine is easy to operate, clean, and maintain, which reduces downtime and maximizes overall equipment effectiveness.”

The Pack 202 is designed to produce up to 300 packs per minute at a film speed of 50 meters. Supported pack styles include pillow, gusseted, and easy-to-open packs.

The finwheel modules have been synchronized and 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. On the Pack 202 for the North American market, the Pack 403’s powered fin fold-over technology is now included as a standard feature. Not only does this technology enhance the appearance of each pack, it also facilitates maintenance and cleaning processes since the fold-over unit can be removed easily.

The cross-seal unit on the Pack 202 has also been improved: The standard double-spring kit offers more consistent and stable seals, while the adjustment resolution has been doubled, enabling more precise and repeatable crimper adjustments.
