PAC Machinery (PAC), Leaders in packaging with one of the most diverse ranges of machinery, has entered its PAC FW650SI Flow Wrapper in the MHI Innovation Award competition for Best New Innovation in Sustainability,”  a new category added for the 2024 competition.  PAC Machinery’s FW 650SI Flow Wrapper just debuted in October 2023, as PAC’s first flow wrapper to package with both poly and PAC’s new, innovative, Fiberflex® paper packaging material.  FW 650SI Flow Wrapper provides industries that flow wrap, with a complete plastic-free packaging system.  MHI is the largest material handling, logistics and supply chain association and producer of the MODEX show among several others.

FW 650SI was designed to work specifically with PAC’s new Fiberflex high-performance, eco-friendly paper for flow wrapping, that can be conveniently discarded for recycling curbside. Fiberflex can also be made with recycled content options. It helps companies achieve sustainable goals, package safer and reduces plastic in the environment.

Industries served with the FW 650SI Flow Wrapper include: food, electronics, bakery, candy, industrial manufactured parts, medical devices and other industries that wrap products at high speeds.

“PAC Machinery is leading the way in sustainable packaging solutions and we are thrilled to have this opportunity through our industry partner, MHI, to showcase both new innovative technology in packaging equipment and in the materials that we offer, said Greg Berguig, Vice President of PAC Machinery. “This packaging solution provides two eco-friendly solutions with innovations in both the machinery and the sustainable paper packaging, providing a way for companies to reduce reliability on plastic and improve their sustainable impact,” Berguig said.
