Our values


Suitable either for high-speed or airtight packaging requirements, our flowpack machines feature rotating or box motion transversal sealing units to create a fin seal. A longitudinal seam above or below can be selected, and machines can be combined with a range of feed systems, such as finger conveyor chains or infeed belts. A wide variety of films can also be processed from PP or aluminum laminated films all the way through to Tyvek®.


Designed to meet the demanding and highly specific requirements of the pharmaceutical and medical goods sectors, Hugo Beck designs and manufactures complex bespoke packaging lines that deliver consistent quality from the very first pack. Our flowpack X-D film packaging machines ensure 100% hermetic seals, seamless traceability and reproducible results and can also meet the challenging demands of clean room manufacturing.


Whether using a chain infeed or infeed conveyor, our servo X film packaging machines win with their continuous packaging process and avoidance of 'stop-and-go' production. As well as delivering high performance, our servo X poly bag machines tightly pack goods, saving on film and preventing products from slipping during the process.


From a space-saving standalone device to a fully integrated packaging process, Hugo Beck's universal film packaging machine flexo X can be employed flexibly in every sense. It is particularly suited to frequently changing products, packed individually or in a stack, as it can be reconfigured in no time at all and without the need for tools. Also with its product data memory, users can quickly call up previously packed products, saving time and ensuring consistent packaging time after time.


With decades of experience in the development of automation Hugo Beck's solutions are suitable for a wide variety of applications. From handling systems such as portals, grouping solutions, stacking and counting devices, cross pusher etc. - the list of automation options is long. Recently strengthened by the addition of parallel robots, which make it easier than ever to handle a wide variety of products, Hugo Beck is ideally situated to meet each user's automation requirements.
