WOLFERTSCHWENDEN, GERMANY—At the IFFA 2016, May 7-12, 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany, Multivac AC will introduce at its booth space—Hall 11.1, Stand C11—a new die concept for the production of MultiFresh skin packs on traysealers.
The new die will be introduced on the T 800 traysealer (see image above). With this concept, Multivac will be exhibiting a space-saving, reliable and high-performance solution for skin packaging a wide range of products with a high degree product protrusion.
The main feature of the new die concept is that all the stages necessary for the process take place within the die—without restricting the use of the full die format. This also includes the heating of the skin film.
Thanks to this controlled process, a high level of pack quality can be guaranteed. Only the die and grippers have to be changed to carry out the format change, which means that machine downtime is reduced to a minimum. Modified atmosphere packs or packs without modified atmosphere can also be produced on the traysealer.
The high-output T 800 traysealer is suitable for packaging large batches and can be operated from both sides, and can be integrated into automated packaging lines.
The T 800 at the IFFA will be part of an automatic packaging line consisting of a denester with tray tracking, conveyor belts, a metal detector, an L 310 conveyor belt labeler for top and bottom labeling and an H 130 handling module for handling finished packs.
In addition, at IFFA, Multivac will also present a diverse range of products for loading on automated traysealer lines, such as multihead weighers, portion-to-pack systems and various fillers. Fillets, steaks, mince, burgers, chicken wings, ready meals and many other products can be packed on Multivac traysealers.
In cooperation with leading film manufacturers, Multivac has approved a film range for producing vacuum skin packs, and this enables high-quality packs to be produced for a wide variety of products and requirements. Company information available at http://multivac.com/en/.
