Game-changing PFM D-180 set for UK debut at PPMA

PFM Packaging Machinery, world-class designer and manufacturer of machinery for flexible packaging, will be showcasing the revolutionary D-180 horizontal pouch machine to the UK market on stand C20 at this year’s PPMA Show (26-28 September 2023, NEC Birmingham) – in its UK debut.

The centrepiece among the company’s many outstanding automated solutions on display, the D-180 is a fully servo controlled, modular horizontal stand-up pouch packaging machine. This flagship model can complete format changes in minutes - rather than hours like some competitors - thanks to a highly automated, tool-less procedure with no clean-down necessary before changeover. The D-180’s intelligent interface even suggests positions for new formats, and can be easily adapted and modified as required.

Being the most compact machine in the D-series range, the D-180’s cutting-edge technology efficiently produces up to eighty pouches per minute, achieves extraordinary results in modified atmosphere packaging and is ready-made for use with eco-friendly films. Ideal for any applications in which products are pouched, including food, coffee, protein and whey powders and non-food products such as detergents and wipes, the machine boasts an impressive ROI and significantly reduces downtime.
