Hugo Beck and mopack showcase end-to-end film packaging solutions at FachPack 2016


Dettingen/Erms, 9 August 2016 – Hugo Beck, a leading manufacturer of flowpack, film packaging, and post-print processing systems will team up with mopack and at this year's FachPack trade fair. As a leading supplier of polyolefin, polyethylene and polypropylene packaging film and shrink film, mopack complements Hugo Beck's range of horizontal film packaging solutions perfectly. Visitors can explore applications for various mopack films and Hugo Beck packaging machines first-hand on Stand 307 in Hall 4A. Hugo Beck is also represented in the 'Packaging in Medical Technology and Pharmacy' theme park on Stand 360 in Hall 9.

Flowpack seal-tight packaging
The flowpack X-e is the entry-level model of Hugo Beck's film packaging machines for flowpack applications in many sectors, including the food and confectionery industry. It offers all the features of larger machines, such as a rotary transverse sealing unit, a servo axis control system, and an adjustable forming shoulder for a high degree of flexibility. Its typical fin seals produce exceptionally airtight packs suitable for modified atmosphere applications and enhancing presentation at the point of sale. The spectrum of films that can be used ranges from hot or cold-sealable across metallic or paper coated films through to laminated films. Flowpacking using biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film from mopack will be demonstrated at FachPack .

The flowpack machine line's X-D version is designed especially for use in the pharmaceutical and medical technology sectors, where Hugo Beck specialises mainly in customised solutions. Fully hermetic packaging seams, full traceability, and reproducibility from the first product packaging are guaranteed. Examples of packaged items are infusion tubes, drug and alcohol tests, plaster, diagnostic equipment, etc. Stringent cleanroom requirements are easily maintained when petri dishes are seal-tight packaged. Visitors to the 'Packaging in Medical Technology and Pharmacy' theme park in Hall 9 are invited to obtain further information from Hugo Beck at the venue.

Bagged and shrink-wrapped packaging
Using mopack's polyethylene and polyolefin films, Hugo Beck and mopack are also presenting bagging and shrink packaging applications for many different areas. Hard or soft materials, bulky or compact designs: the film packaging solutions of each partner allow for the reliable, high-quality packaging of countless products. By way of example, FachPack visitors will be able to see the entry-level flexo X – a true all-rounder when it comes to tubular bag machines – and Hugo Beck's servo X side sealer combined with a four-axial parallel robot and shrink tunnel. The company showcased its high-speed robot technology for various automation options in a live demonstration for the first time at the drupa 2016 trade fair.

Centre of Excellence for Film Packaging
After many years of working together, Hugo Beck and mopack established the Centre of Excellence for Film Packaging in 2015. The packaging process in its entirety is the focus of the co-operation between the two companies, enabling customers to further benefit from single source solutions. Hugo Beck machines have been fine-tuned for mopack films to the greatest extent possible – as will be demonstrated at FachPack.
