FreePack ® 2000



Producing individually-wrapped processed cheese slices (IWS) on the world's fastest machine using a continuously operating production method.

» Up to 2,200 slices per minute.
» Super-efficient seams use 20% less wrap.
» Can wrap 2 lines simultaneously.
» Ultra-low give away.
» Low operating cost, fast ROI.

Fastest cheese slice wrapper IWS machine: FreePack ® 2000

FreePack® 2000

The Natec Network FreePack® 2000 machine produces individually-wrapped processed cheese slices (IWS) using a continuously operating production method. Wrapping is performed without risk of recontamination using the hot-fill system. The PP foil used is environmentally friendly and recycable. Exact sealing ensures the product is securely wrapped and sealed.

The individually-wrapped slices are easy to open. They are of exactly uniform weight and accurately stacked in piles which remain in exact position during transport from the FreePack® to the Flowpacker.

IWS - Individually Wrapped Slices of cheese


Plastic foil reduction

  • Plastic foil need reduced by 20 % due to small and efficient welding seams

Exact piles

  • Unique cutting and stacking technique which arranges and coordinates individually-wrapped slices into exact piles

Central control surveillance system

  • High operator comfort and trouble-free production thanks to the central control surveillance system

Less give away

  • Minimal give away thanks to our unique implemented weight control system

Twin production

  • Twin production: each of the two independently operating lanes produces up to 1,100 slices per minute - this makes the production of two different cheese types at the same time possible
