The Flexo machine from the Hugo Beck range is an entry level model. This machine is modular, flexible, and extremely cost effective, offering great returns on investment.
The Flexo X provides reliable and stable side seals for all shrink films, including bio-degradable polyolefin, polythene, polypropylene and also barrier films. Both centre fold and single wound films can be run with ease.
Hugo Beck have always recommended Bollore shrink films as they are the world leaders in thin film technology and thus unrivalled performance is achieved when used on Hugo Beck shrink wrapping machines.
The Flexo offers extremely fast format changeovers on a wide variety of products without the need for any tools thus reducing machine downtime. This level of flexibility is something which our customer have found incredibly valuable.
The machine is operated via a touch screen with simple operator guidance system. The Flexo offers options for automatic, motorised height adjustment of cross sealing, side sealing and forming shoulder. In addition corrections to the setup can be made from the display during the machine operation without the need to stop production.
The Hugo Beck Flexo model also offers a unique film path control ensuring absolute consistency and pack repeatability even at high speeds. Automatic setup is also available as an option providing a smooth, efficient set up process.
All drive motors are driven from inverters ensuring a soft start ramp up and soft ramp down when stopping. This is critical when wrapping collated or unstable products and greatly aids the use of much thinner and narrower films without tearing.
The Flexo makes servicing and machine maintenance incredibly easy as all the important machine mechanisms can be easily accessed without the need to move the machine. The shrink wrapper is designed with quick release fasteners so all panels can be easily removed allowing service access to all working parts.
The Hugo Beck Flexo has a capacity of 5,000 cycles per hour – unbeatable in the industry at this level of shrink wrapping equipment.
