The FW 650SI Servo Box Motion Inverted Flow Wrapper makes bags to product length at high speed using PAC’s NEW Curbside, Recyclable Paper. The FW 650SI has a 13.75” wide end seal jaw to accommodate products up to 12” wide or 8” high. It has the ability to print directly on the package or on a label that is applied to the package, and is ideal for apparel and other soft, delicate products packaged with a continuous motion.
