George Gordon Associates has launched the AccuWrap FG-2000W, a
seven-axis, servo-controlled, food-grade wrapper with wash-down

The firm claims that the concept is one of the most user-friendly wrappers in the industry. The FG-2000W is highly modular, which makes for easy maintenance, cleaning, and flexible use.

The modular design, wash down capability and small footprint mean that the system is being targeted at food applications such as pizzas, food trays and individually wrapped jumbo cookies.

The AccuWrap food grade inverted horizontal wrapping system also takes into account the current drive towards greater efficiency. The machine is designed for high speed production, and the stainless steel construction is designed to meet "no particle trapping" criteria.

This, claims the company, should result in less downtime and consequently greater efficiency.

The rugged, open construction allows food particles to fall through, and accommodates wash down for all conveyors and wet wipe down of sealing sections.The modular construction allows removal of all modules providing the maximum in accessibility, enabling an even more thorough spill clean up or for expedient changeover and versatility for future business requirements.

Rails lift up, conveyor belts snap out, conveyors slide out and the former is easy to change. Even the fin wheels are modular.

The advanced electronic features for production-compatible operation make the AccuWrap​ suitable for a number of food packaging applications. The system features independently adjustable servo control of linear fin sealing, main cross sealing, rotary knife, conveyors and unwind, which provides the ultimate in control for packaging production.

The AccuWrap is also highly automated. With the standard Allen Bradley servo system, the system offers all the features for high production throughput as the communication-friendly controller provides complete line supervision.

There are over 100 recipes for touch screen retrieval, and product position monitoring for Out Of Position/No Cut and No Product/No Bag should automatically lead to more good packages ready to ship.
