Fuji’s new Alpha 8 Horizontal Flow Wrapper takes Interpack by storm

We were delighted to unveil our latest evolution in packaging machinery, the Fuji Alpha 8 Horizontal Flow Wrapper at last month’s Interpack -  the world’s biggest and most important trade fair of the packaging sector.

Alpha 8 Horizontal Flow Wrapper

With innovation, quality and reliability at the heart of the Alpha 8, the machine has evolved to incorporate a stronger, simpler and more accessible end seal system, which is quieter, more reliable, with higher sealing pressure. The Fuji Vision System (FVS) is further enhanced with “auto teaching”, which includes automatic detection of film registration, allowing for easier setup and product change, and the detection of correct print for product, thus avoiding incorrect film.  The high-specification machine is complemented by a new interface, with a larger screen (now 15.6”), which is customisable to allow for immediate access to main and most commonly used functions.  A 500mm shorter film path and film rollers made of stainless steel for increased hygiene are other notable developments.

Following the introduction of this new technology and optimised processes, Fuji have attained a 20% energy saving, a reduction in setup and changeover times and a further reduction in film waste.

Commenting on the launch of the new Fuji Alpha 8 Horizontal Flow Wrapper, Paramount Packaging Systems’ Operations Manager, Darren Bull,  said; “Once again Fuji raised the bar with the launch of the latest of the Alpha series, the Alpha 8.  This new wrapper offers many new and exciting features which we believe will be of huge benefit to all new and existing customers”.

Paramount Packaging Systems’ Sales Director, Aaron Bessell, said; “We were delighted to be back at Interpack last month to launch the new Alpha 8. We saw a fourfold increase in the number of UK & Irish customers to the stand and there have been a record number of enquiries following the launch.”
