Wholly automatic machines for packing fruit and vegetables.

AUTO 40/L automatic continuous sealer fruit and vegetable packaging machines dedicated to the specific packaging of dates.

Dates are a type of staple food for people in Middle Eastern countries. Some consider it a sacred fruit and it is almost always served to guests as part of each house’s hospitality path. Spanish missionaries brought the tree to the New World in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Date palms are grown in the Canary Islands, North Africa, the Middle East, Pakistan, India, Mexico and the US state of California.

Dates can be eaten fresh as they are picked from palm trees, or they can be dried and stored for years.

And now some photos and a video of wholly automatic machines for packing fruit and vegetables. Good vision!

The Shrink tunnels produced by Pactur are available in different sizes (TL/30, TL/70 and TL/80); the choice depends on the size of the products, which must be shrink wrapped.

Within the range of shrink tunnels, there are three available versions for each model:

– teflon mesh conveyor belt

– conveyor made of silicon coated metal bars;

– metal mesh conveyor belt.

These different versions allow the shrink tunnel to fit various product and various kinds of film.

The advantages of heat-shrink packaging do not end with aesthetics: the main features of the transparent, shrink film are high mechanical strength, good transparency and affordable costs.

For example, for light and irregularly shaped products, teflon mesh belt is suitable. On the other hand, if the result of the the finished, packed product must be aesthetically remarkable, with a perfect shrinkage also on the bottom of the product, the most convenient solution is the tunnel with silicon coated bar belt.

On the other hand, when the used film is polyethylene, when  products are heavy and packaging has only a protection purposes, the suitable technical answer is the metal mesh belt version.

The shrink film reacts to high temperature, which reduces about 50% of its initial size, by getting tight to the wrapped product. After cooling, the film retains its new shape.

This process allows the packaging of single, as well as multiple products. Products are sealed in plastic film (neutral or printed) bags, which, after shrinkage, adhere to the product, thus following its shape . Thermo-shrinking is particularly suitable both for food items and for other kinds of products (graphical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical products, etc.), it allows a complete closure of the plastic film, guaranteeing protection from external agents and unwanted openings of the packages.

A limitation of the shrink wrap is that, once opened, the bag is no longer resealable and reusable, because the film is broken. This limit becomes an advantage if we read it as a guarantee of the inviolability of the product: intact film = inviolate product.

The shrink tunnels are entirely produced by Pactur.

Heat-shrinking tunnels

Pactur heat-shrinking tunnels are very powerful, which grants high shrink quality and capacity.

This quality result is achievable thanks to the powerful ventilation, which spreads the hot air all over the product surface very homogeneously.

These heat-shrinking tunnels are produced both with independent control and with control from the automatic packaging machine PLS.

In the case of independent control, they are obviously equipped with a control panel for the adjustment of the three main functions: temperature, conveyor speed and ventilation speed. Whereas, in case of control from the machine, its functions are adjustable from the machine touch screen, where they can also be memorized.

Packaging machines for parquet boards

Parquet is one of the most popular home floors in Italy and abroad, and also one of the most beloved. A room with parquet is warm, elegant and refined, because wood gives every room a comfortable and classy look. Furthermore, no floor looks like the other, because the wood characteristics vary from board to board, and can be mixed in ever new and pleasant geometries, making the customization opportunities almost infinite.

The widespread use of parquet in the building field is in fact due to the beauty and versatility of wood: just think about how many types of wood there are on the market and how much the appearance of a room can change depending on the choice of the parquet. .

For the floating installation, pre-finished boards are used, with cut edges to create the classic male-female attachment, a sort of joint like a puzzle. They are installed on an existing floor, after using a mat of insulating material to level the support surface.

The first advantage is immediately evident: thanks to the interlocking mechanism, no nails or glues are required for installation. This means that this type of installation is not only  economical, but also eco-sustainable: without the use of artificial adhesives, in fact, the environment and the quality of the air inside your home are better respected. The second advantage is the speed and simplicity of the installation itself: floating parquet boards can be positioned in short time and without difficulties. Hence the economic advantage: without manpower and solid wood, the price of your parquet will drop significantly.

Our automatic continuous side seal packaging machines for shrink film are suitable for almost all shapes of parquet boards. Four models are available in our range, with different widths, in order to pack almost any kind of wooden board: from the profiles to a 850 mm wide axis.
Thanks to the side rotary sealer, our machines pack any length of product, therefore they can package boards from the shortest to the longest size, even with a length of several meters.
Moreover, they use both Polyolefin (PO) and Polyethylene (PE) films, therefore they meet any requirement, both for an aesthetic package and for a strong, tough protection package.
Here is a video, showing one of the continuous side sealer models, Auto 60/L, in operation.

Pactur strongly recommends constant sealing blade maintenance: if the sealing parts of your packaging machine are kept in excellent condition, this goes to the full advantage of the quality of the sealing and the performance of the machine.
In fact, if the cutting blade is clean, intact, free of encrusted film residues, without dents or distortions, which alter its linearity, the welding is certainly excellent sealing, with an aesthetically thin line, but very resistant and the times of welding are reduced to the bare minimum.
The same can be said for the welding contrast, composed of rubber and adhesive Teflon: the newer these materials are, with no grooves due to wear, the more effective their beating function against the sealing blade is, to the benefit of both the quality of the cutting and welding, as well as welding times.
Whether you have a manual, semi-automatic or automatic model, the maintenance principle of the sealing block is the same and the resulting advantages are the same.
We are at your disposal to identify the details suitable for your packaging machine.

If you answer this communication, with a request for spare parts, you will get a 5% discount.

You just have to tell us the serial number of your machine and, if you can, send us some pictures of the welder and the contrast, so that we can examine their condition.
We will identify with you the parts, which need to be replaced for the correct sealing blade maintenance.
Constant and careful maintenance of the welder will pay off with excellent performance of your packaging machine.

The prestigious company Rizzoli Emanuelli, our client, has allowed us to enter its production site and to make these shots. First, therefore, let us express our gratitude.

Let’s see our Automatic Shrink Wrapper A802 with side pusher in operation.

We are pleased to highlight some particularities of the packaging machine:

The low position of both reels, which facilitates the safe film change
A system of rollers and film-opener ties brings a flap of film at the top, so that operation returns to the traditional one, with a flap of film descending from above and one rising from below
This dragging of a layer of the film at the top does not affect the fluidity of the work and the sliding of the film itself
The side loader is suitable for different product formats
The double metal mesh conveyor belt in the welding area and in the tunnel makes the two operations independent, therefore the retraction is not affected by the welding times
As for the aesthetics and robustness of the Automatic Shrink Wrapper A802, we leave the judgment to you.

Pactur and innovation in packaging machines

“So artisans and so industrial: the winning strategy is the multi-market one”



FARE Insieme - Confindustria Emilia e PACTUR
Paola Dozza - Pactur srl
Paola Dozza
Since its inception in 1986, PACTUR has represented an excellence for the packaging supply chain, covering markets all over the world. From Zola Predosa the winning strategy between mechanics and electronics. For “FARE Insieme” Giampaolo Colletti interviews Paola Dozza, partner and sales office manager of Pactur (FARE Insieme project of Confindustria Emilia)

of Giampaolo Colletti   @gpcolletti

If there is a distinctive element of the companies of excellence of this Emilian triangle between Modena, Bologna and Ferrara, it is in the strategic balance between being artisanal and being industrial. The artisan vocation is breathed in the tailor-made solutions. The industrial vocation is in pioneering internationalization. This is the story of Pactur, a family-run business engaged in the production of packaging machines for shrink film, therefore able to tighten with heat. The company was founded in 1986 and has been exporting since its inception. So today it is not surprising that it is better known abroad than in Italy. “Then the domestic market also developed and today it oscillates between 30% and 50%, but the specificity has been from the very beginning that selling in the world: from Europe to South America, from Russia to Australia and up to ‘Far East. At the time there was not such an international vision, which is why we were pioneers, “says Paola Dozza, partner and sales manager of the Pactur company. The winning strategy was to be multi-localized and multi-market, breaking down the boundaries between sectors and thus ensuring continuity. «You have to be frightened when a market takes over, because it could prove dangerous if things change. This is why our turnover is made up of many different orders, all important but none fundamental. On the other hand, we live off our strengths and our finances and therefore if we did not do so we would not be able to afford a possible crisis in the geographic or sectoral market “, explains Dozza.

Time factor. To understand this entrepreneurial project linked to the packaging supply chain, we must move to Zola Predosa, twenty thousand souls in the metropolitan area of ​​Bologna nestled between the plains and hills, considered the gateway to Val Samoggia, about twelve kilometers from the DueTorri. We are in 1986 and the intuition of Andrea Turra, who founded it, is to give a concrete answer to the lively pack district, creating cutting-edge packaging machines. Everything starts from the assembly and then reaches the final delivery of the product. The initial investment was 5 million old Italian lire. But what has made the difference is having been forerunners in the market, selling many manual machines. All this made it possible to finance research on automatic machines. A constant growth, we said before. A few years later, precisely in 1992, the company took over the carpentry in Zola Predosa which cut and folded the sheets on behalf of Pactur. “At the time it was a visionary approach. There was and always has been a great team game. In addition to Turra, one of the architects of our success is Claudio Tondi, still our workshop manager to whom we recognize the development of electronics in our machines, “Dozza recalls. Today Pactur is a 100% made in Italy producer. The company employs twelve people for a turnover of 1.5 million euros. All the bagging machines do the same type of packaging, that is, they seal the cellophane around the product and when required they tighten the bag to the product, so that it becomes a sort of second skin. Time must be read through the lens of continuity and evolution. “The demand for packaging machines has changed over the years, with a concentration that has shifted from manual and semi-automatic to automatic ones and with electronics that play a more strategic importance today,” says Dozza.

Italian pride. “Create, improve, support”: behind these three actions is summarized the mission. “It means being small, but having great cutting-edge solutions. We work in a market where margins are low, so we must necessarily identify solutions with performing machines. This is why our workshop prototype department looks for solutions that can distinguish us from the others, “Dozza points out. The development of the market has multiplied the competition, especially from the Far East, and all this has hit the lower end, made up of those machines with which Pactur was born. Here then is the escape route to that electronics that make the difference. Innovation is aimed at simplification, with high Italian quality. And for Dozza it is a pride to hear customers at the fair comment on the beauty and functionality of our machines, assuming that they must necessarily be Italian. Then there is the brand of the entire Pactur range, which sums up the philosophy. It is LadyPack and must be literally translated as “lady machine”. “It is an expression of admiration that you get when you look at something that is very beautiful, refined, of quality. This is what we say about a “lady bicycle” or a “lady house”. It’s the top product, ”Dozza says. For her over the years the passion has remained unchanged. The future is made up of electronics, without neglecting mechanics and bodywork, that is, the aesthetics that are the seal of the company. The machine can pack books or sandwiches, but it must be beautiful, meeting all packaging needs with multipurpose models. So the challenge is to build better performing and at the same time more versatile solutions, which can package products of different sizes. Always innovate, never stop.

Customize: extra-large products

For us, the special is routine


Another great advantage of buying a packaging machine from Pactur is to have all the technical staff available for possible customizations based on the type of products you need to pack and also Extra-large products.

We are basically an artisan company and each machine is made as if it were a single piece, from the welding of the metal structure (see published article) to the assembly of the individual mechanical and electronic elements. It is therefore almost “routine” for us to create special packaging machines or to enlarge the scale of our machines to produce extra-large formats.

The following video shows how a 65 LINE can become a maxi format (140 LINE) for a customer who has to pack non-standard size O-Rings for huge excavators.
