Pasta Reale, a leading fresh pasta supplier to high street multiples, has bought a PFM Packaging Machinery Vetta form, fill, seal machine able to produce multiple bag styles and a MBP 16 multihead weigher to increase output at its Crawley, UK site.
PFM says the latest order was prompted by its “exceptional repair service” on a machine supplied to the same customer 20 years ago.
Being used to produce stand-up bags and block bottom 4 vertical seal bags, the Vetta has given Pasta Reale additional production flexibility, enabling it to accommodate increasing demand. It can produce up to 20 different bag styles.
The MBP16 can run at higher speeds than other units at the Pasta Reale site, and should, the company says, enable it to continue with any further diversification plans.
