The Rose Forgrove stainless version MERLIN BLU flow wrapper is innovatively engineered with an easy-to-clean design and several tool-free removal features making it suitable for a wide range of challenging industries, such as frozen and wet products. The hygienic features of the MERLIN BLU include sloped surfaces and rounded legs minimising debris build up. The easy-to- clean features are matched by technical highlights of “no product-no bag”, which minimises film waste, “misplaced product” detection and the intuitive, icon-based HMI which facilitates quick, repeatable changeovers. The new transparent guard design provides operators with a clear view of the whole wrapping process. The wrapping speed for the Rose Forgrove MERLIN BLU is 100 (single jaw) to 200 (twin jaw) packs per minute and the pack range is up to 120mm high by 300mm wide, according to product and film.
