Rigid waste…or flexible value? That is the question that many in the packaging industry are faced with as we transition into a new era of flexible packaging.

The benefits of choosing flexible packaging over more traditional rigid packagire myriad – simply put, the level of innovation that is made possible by flexible packaging is hard to argue against, not to mention the cost savings, sustainability and efficiencies that come from optimizing your packaging solutions.

One of the stars of the flexible packaging movement that continues to gain momentum is Fres-co’s G14 automatic form, fill and seal machine with finishing conveyor. As a versatile, high-performance machine, the G14 can be applied to a wide variety of products. Despite the fact that it has long been associated with its incredible efficiency in packaging coffee products, the G14 can handle so much more. In fact, it can also be used with frozen foods, snacks, pet food and many other free-flowing products, both dry and non-dry.

Designed with the concepts of flexibility and performance in mind, the question is, just how efficient is the performance? Well, with PLC-based touchscreen HMI controls, you can experience the convenience of simple and quick changeover between sizes, with the machine operating easily and smoothly. Its versatility is astounding, as evidenced by the variety of applications the G14 can be utilized for, ranging from dry products to liquid products and nearly everything in-between.

Available in two models, the G14 and the faster, even more efficient G14C, all machines in the G14 family feature an integrated gas flushing system, automatic web alignment, Servo servo-driven seal jaws, and other optional features such as a degassing valves applicator, a finishing conveyor with multiple stations, a zipper reclosure applier, a Fres-co Tin-Tie applier and load cell scales for weight accuracy. The package finishing options available for the both the G14 and G14C models include square bottom packaging, gusseted bags and pillow pouch packaging.

Of course, the speed, efficiency and convenience of a machine as powerful as the G14 is something you truly need to see to believe…and you can. Fres-co will be displaying the G14 at next month’s Pack Expo 2014 event, taking place in the South Building of McCormick Place in Chicago, IL from November 2-5. The machine will be on display at booth #4156 where Fres-co will also be exhibiting its FSU800 and Termalock industrial sealer, and educating show attendees about the other flexible packaging solutions they provide. We will also have a gift for you that demonstrates our commitment to sustainable packaging.

For more than 40 years, Fres-co System USA, Inc. has manufactured high-performance flexible packaging systems and invented dozens of innovative breakthroughs including degassing valves, modified atmosphere technologies, and reclosure systems.
