Schib Kestrel

The Schib® Kestrel is BW Flexible Systems' latest entry-level horizontal flow wrapping machine. Suitable for wrapping a wide variety of food and non-food products, both individually and in multipacks, the Kestrel HFFS features a compact footprint and is designed to offer a versatile, easy to use packaging solution.

Versatile Flow Wrapper

The Kestrel's compact footprint makes it an ideal choice for any packaging environment where space constraints are a consideration. Available in either single or twin jaw configuration, the Kestrel also offers adjustable or fixed folding boxes, giving you plenty of flexibility to customize the Kestrel to your specific requirements.

Intuitive and Easy to Use

The Kestrel is easy to use, easy to maintain, and easy to operate. The Kestrel comes equipped with a panel-based control system with a 5.7" color touch screen and employs an icon-based operator interface with real-time diagnostics. Plus, the straightforward and intuitive set-up of the Kestrel is intentionally designed to produce fast, repeatable changeovers.

Kestrel is also ready to help reduce waste! Integrated sensors like the "no product, no bag" sensor and the misplaced product sensor help minimize wasted film and product.

Durable and Dependable

The Kestrel's painted steel frame is constructed so that all product contact points are stainless steel or food grade plastic and includes independent temperature control circuits for the long seal rollers and sealing jaws.
