BW Flexible Systems’ TruFORM Delivers Forming Set Advancements
Next generation forming set technology offers superior performance for flexible packagers
DUNCAN, S.C. — Oct. 14, 2020 — BW Flexible Systems’ design and engineering teams have introduced TruFORM, the next generation of forming set technology for the flexible packaging market. Re-engineered from the ground up, TruFORM is both lighter and more adept at handling various films, offering users a superior performance.
The forming set is an integral part of flexible packaging equipment. The machine wraps film around the set to form it into bags, while simultaneously delivering product through the set into the newly formed bags. With updates to packaging machinery and new film materials in the marketplace, the forming set was due for an upgrade.
Because forming sets are handled frequently in many locations to meet increasing changeover requirements, TruFORM leverages the strength and durability of previous BW Flexible Systems designs, but it is approximately 30 percent lighter.
Also part of its revolutionary design, TruFORM’s re-engineered former is the product of extensive research in forming set wing geometry. The updated technology improves film handling, allowing users to reduce wasted film, effort and time during packaging operations.
TruFORM is available now as an upgrade for existing Ultima vertical bagger installs and with new Ultima machines. In the future, TruFORM will be a standard forming set on new Hayssen flexible packaging equipment.
BW Flexible Systems creates flexible packaging solutions by bringing together some of the industry's most trusted and innovative brands, including Hayssen, Rose Forgrove, Sandiacre, Schib, Simionato, SYMACH and others. BW Flexible Systems is one of several Barry-Wehmiller companies represented in BW Packaging Systems, which brings together the collective packaging capabilities of Accraply, BW Flexible Systems, BW Integrated Systems, Pneumatic Scale Angelus and Synerlink.
